Iranian MP to Brits: Islam requires capital punishment for gays

Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference, The Times has learnt…
Minutes taken by an official describe a meeting between British and Iranian MPs at the Inter-Parliamentary Union, a peace body, in May. When the Britons raised the hangings of Asqari and Marhouni, the leader of the Iranian delegation, Mr Yahyavi, a member of his parliament’s energy committee, was unflinching. He “explained that according to Islam gays and lesbianism were not permitted”, the record states. “He said that if homosexual activity is in private there is no problem, but those in overt activity should be executed [he initially said tortured but changed it to executed]. He argued that homosexuality is against human nature and that humans are here to reproduce. Homosexuals do not reproduce.”
This isn’t the first time a prominent Iranian has raised this subject before a western audience, but unlike our own bien pensants, the Brits at least spoke up against it. Follow the link to the Times of London story and see for yourself what Islamic justice mandated for a woman made pregnant by her own brother. It’s all part of the love, peace, justice, dignity, friendship, laughter, prosperity, and flowers ethos that useful idiots so admire in Ahmadinejad when he lies to their faces each year at the UN.
