The Religion Of Peace: Execute Gays

An Iranian top dog says the homosexuals who of course do not exist in Iran should be hanged:

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.

President Ahmadinejad, questioned by students in New York two months ago about the executions, dodged the issue by suggesting that there were no gays in his country. ...

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.” (Source)

Sounds like Yahyavi would find a home among the human scum at the Westboro Baptist Church. Westboro is a disgusting aberration of Christ's call not to sin, to recognize our own sin, and to love others, and Christiandom been loud and eloquent in its disgust.

Somehow I think the moderate Muslims -- who are about as vocal as giraffes -- won't be heard today giving Yahyavi a verbal shellacking for his views.
