"Predatory?" "Indulge in?" Strong language!

Indeed. I don't think it would be fun to be gay and living in places like Iran or Pakistan. But a lot of people there seem to have strange notions on lots of subjects, not just homosexuality. But given the legal situation(s) in the United States, you could say similar things with regard to homosexuality, although the murder of gay people is not sanctioned by law in the USA, but sometimes happens regardless.
