I mean, really, isn't this how the National Socialist Party got rolling?
"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. Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged."
No, but wait, here is the best part...
"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.”
Well, how unenlightened and uncosmopolitan of them to torture gay people. What a Freudian Slip of the truth? The bigger question is where are the Dems and the Code Stinko idiots on this one? I thought it was sssoooo not OK to torture people. I mean, we at least waterboard people to find out information about terrorists. These ass-pirates do it just for the sheer fun of it.
I am guessing that there will be no syndication deal for "Queer Eye for the Islamic Guy" on Iranian State TV.
According to Wikipedia; "Nazi ideology stressed the racial purity of the German people and persecuted those it perceived either as enemies or Lebensunwertes Leben, that is "life unworthy of life". (This included Jews, and homosexuals, along with Jehovah's Witnesses, the mentally and/or physically disabled, socialists, and communists."
Boy, that sounds like something I heard recently;
“Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury,” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Hmmmm...... Wonder what he meant by that???
