    "Homosexuals deserve to be executed", Iranian Leader



    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 learned.

    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.

    Britain regularly challenges Iran about its gay hangings, stonings and executions of adulterers and perceived moral criminals, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) papers show.

    The latest row involves a woman hanged this June in the town of Gorgan after becoming pregnant by her brother. He was absolved after expressing his remorse. Britain said that this demonstrated the unequal treatment of men and women in law and breached Iran’s pledge to restrict the death penalty to the most serious crimes.

    A series of reported executions of gays, including two underage boys whose public hanging was posted on the internet, has alarmed human rights campaigners.

    The Pet Shop Boys dedicated Fundamental, their Grammy-nominated album, to Mahmoud Asqari and Ayad Marhouni, who were hanged in Justice Square in Mashhad in 2005. Graphic photographs of the execution of the youths, who were under 18 when arrested, were released by the Iranian Students News Agency.

    Gay rights groups in Britain, such as Outrage!, accuse Iran of cloaking executions for homosexuality with bogus charges for more serious crimes.

    Under the Freedom of Information Act, the FCO released papers to The Times about the death penalty being used in Iran for homosexuality, adultery and sex outside marriage.

    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."

    Nicole Pichet, a researcher who also took notes of the gathering, told The Times that the discussion began with British MPs discussing the underage gay hangings. Mr Yahyavi responded by saying homosexuality was to blame for a lot of diseases such as Aids.

    Ann Clwyd, the Labor MP and head of Britain’s delegation, said yesterday: "It is of great concern that these attitudes persist and we made it clear what we felt."

    Iran, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Nigeria apply the death penalty for homosexuality, according to the International Lesbian and Gay Association.

    So the thrust here is that there are no homosexuals in Iran, however... if they do exist and are not seen cavorting in public, it's OK. Yet in keeping with the fact that there are no homosexuals in Iran, those found will be killed. This makes sense, seeing as that homosexuals do not reproduce, they should be murdered to prevent them from not doing so.

    Christ, my head hurts from reading that back.

    Very sad

    The Iranian gov beliefs have nothing to do with radical Islam. Islam is a peaceful religion that tolerates all.

    NOT

    these bastards are sick, they don't tolerate gays, they don't want to look at women????? All of this is part of Radical Islam and their hatred towards others. Tolerance is not part of their culture. Agreeing to disagree does not happen in that part of the world.

    Why we haven't sent sharks with friggin laser beams over there to kill this prick is beyond me.

    Nah, sharks are far too difficult to train, for one thing. Plus they are notoriously vulnerable once on dry land. A far better approach would be to use radio controlled flying dogs, also known as "RCFD"s.

    Uh-huh...b/c gays only live in San Francisco and Austin. Geez...I wonder if anyone's told him yet that the Easter bunny isn't real.

    Funny how homosexuality/bisexuality is deeply ingrained in Persian culture though...

    Default WTF?

    First off, love the smiley, thats nice.

    Next, what those pics have to do with this thread on IRAN I don't know.

    Personally, Radical Islam or Radical Christians or any other radical religions are sick fucks imo. Again, not sure how that's related to this thread on the Iranian leader?

    This thread is not about different religious groups and their screwed up different sects, it's about remarks made by the leader of Iran.

    Well who doesn't...

    Next, what those pics have to do with this thread on IRAN I don't know.
    Of course not, they have to do with Fred Phelps Baptist Chruch of the Divine Fuckwits. Something about God getting US troops in Iraq because we're a "fag nation" that doesn't kill our gays...

    Personally, Radical Islam or Radical Christians or any other radical religions are sick fucks imo. Again, not sure how that's related to this thread on the Iranian leader?
    I think it has something to do with not being limited to Iranian asshole presidents...

    Didn't ours win in 2004 largely on the "don't let them gays get married" platform? Granted, no one was saying it was okay to kill them. But...

    This thread is not about different religious groups and their screwed up different sects, it's about remarks made by the leader of Iran.


    But I think you sort of painted "them" all with the same brush...
