No Rights for 'Immoral, Diseased' Homosexuals in Iran: Official

The secretary-general of the Iranian High Council for Human Rights offered no indication to a German lawmaker last week that warnings connecting diplomacy, aide, and human rights would have any effect on the death sentence faced by gays in Iran, Radio Free Europe reports:

Larijani"The West says that the marriage of homosexuals should be allowed under the human rights charter, however, we think it is sexual immorality and a disease," Iran’s semiofficial Fars news agency quoted Mohammad Javad Larijani as saying, according to dpa.

Fars reported that Larijani made his remarks during a meeting in Tehran with German lawmaker Tom Koenigs, who chairs the human rights committee in Germany’s parliament.

  1. No, no, but seriously...Republicans hate Sharia Law. Really, they do!

  2. Funny thing. I was just thinking the same thing about Shi'ite Islam and Iran. A disease. A cancer on the soul of humanity. Something to be excised. Removed. Destroyed.

  5. Iran's extremism and homophobia does not excuse the apartheid system in the occupied territories of Israel/Palestine.

    But nice attempt at a red herring argument.

  6. Typical murderous Iranian crap about killing the immoral and diseased homos amongst them. Should we expect anything different from these homophobic Islamic bigots? Same question to the current crop of Rethuggist presidential candidates?? No, I didn't think so!

  7. I wonder if any of those US Navy sea men who rescued those Iranian bastards from pirates were gay. If so, maybe we should've let the pirates have their way.

  8. @oousslander
    Christianity is also a cancer on mankind. All organized religion is. It's all the same nonsense when you get down to it

  9. Islamists also think they'll get a gaggle of virgins upon their demise. Doesn't mean it's true.

  10. @The Milkman: Regarding the virgins: if they got a look at the people who attend Star Trek conventions, extremist Muslims might not be so enthusiastic about dying as martyrs.

  11. Iran is a homophobic hellhole.

    Equally, so is our good friend and ally Saudi Arabia.

  12. Are all these virgins they're promised female? I haven't heard anything said explicitly on the matter...wouldn't it just be hysterical if it were same-sex virgins waiting for them on the other side.

  13. WHY IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA SO OBSESSED WITH THE CULTURAL VALUES OF THE MIDDLE EAST? WE HAVE K-I-L-L-E-D Osama bin Laden AND WE "LOOKED THE OTHER WAY" WITH Hosni Mubarek's MURDER. Mohammed Javed Larijani TOLD THE WEST THE VIEWS OF HIS PEOPLE. THE UNITED STATES DOES NOT OWN THE WORLD. STAY OUT OF THOSE FOLKS' BUSINESS!
