The fire moved quickly through the house, a one-story wood-frame structure in a working-class neighborhood of Corsicana, in northeast Texas. Flames spread along the walls, bursting through doorways, blistering paint and tiles and furniture. Smoke pressed against the ceiling, then banked downward, seeping into each room and through crevices in the windows, staining the morning sky.
Buffie Barbee, who was eleven years old and lived two houses down, was playing in her back yard when she smelled the smoke.

On the same weekend, another two ‘gay’ men were thrown from a building in Ninevah into a pile of cement blocks.
ISIS also executed nine men and a boy accused of being gay in Syria in September and have claimed responsibility for the killings of at least 30 other gay men.
