Ahmadinejad Calls Homosexuality an 'Ugly Deed' to the 'Detriment of Humanity', Says No Known Gays in Iran: VIDEO


Yesterday, at a meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is in New York for the UN General Assembly, CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Ahmadinejad about his past remarks that there are no homosexuals in Iran.

Said Ahmadinejad:

"My position hasn't changed. In Iran, homosexuality is looked down upon as an ugly deed. Perhaps there are those who engage in such activities and you may be in contact with them and more aware of them. But in Iranian society such activities, thoughts, and behaviors are shameful. Therefore, these are not known elements within Iranian society. Rest assured, this is one of the ugliest behaviors in our society. It is against divine will, divine teachings of any and every faith, and it is certainly at the detriment of humans and humanity. But as the government, I cannot go in the street and stop my population and ask them about specific orientation, so my position is clear about that."

  4. This is the guy that also says it's impossible for a plane to hit a building and cause the kind of destruction we experienced on 9/11. He's either batshit crazy or a boldfaced liar.

  5. Is he going to join the circus to run for President of the USA on the Republican ticket?

    Rick Perry should be afraid!

  6. Really? You mean hanging two teenagers isn't even uglier? I can't wait to see the day that he is torn out of office and tried for his illegal presidency. We should give this man's words no legitimacy. Iran didn't want him as their president for a reason...

  9. Kind of reminds me of Mrs Carney in South Boston a few years back :

    "Thanks be to God there are no Irish homosexuals !"

    You got to love her !

  12. Sure, bombing countries will certainly lead to the advancement of gay and human rights.

  13. Yeah, because pederasty isn't gay. See how that works?

  16. "Sure, bombing countries will certainly lead to the advancement of gay and human rights."

    It certainly worked for Germany.
