NY1 Caller Says Gays Should Be Beheaded: VIDEO


A discussion about the Supreme Court and marriage equality on NY1's The Call took a turn for the ugly when Chris from Willowbrook, who wants Sharia Law instituted in the United States, called in to say gays should be put to death.


Jeremy Hooper writes: "Note to self: Never book a haircut appointment with a man named Chris who complains about the Staten Island Ferry's long commute."

  1. Chris is a strange name for a Muslim to have. The zeal of the convert indeed.

  3. I'm tired of douchebags like this guy hiding behind their religion. If you listen, clearly this guy hates gay people first and foremost because he's mean and spiteful and heartless, to say the least. Incidentally, he's part of one of the f@cked up religions of the world (Christianty being another) whose political church establishment is run by haters who believe like this guy.

    This Chris guy also does even more injustice to his countrymen. The Saudi Arabians I've met all consider that country's treatment of gay people to be nothing less than shameful.

    So shame on Chris the bigot. And, well, equal shame on Islam, which like Mormonism, has fought hard for a reputation of bigotry, sorry.

  4. I don't think Chris is really Muslim. He sounds like North Jersey's version of Joe the Plumber.

  5. Chris is a (closeted gay) Fundamentalist x-tian who was shining up Islam. I don't think he was real.

  6. This is th essence of religion. ALL religion.

  7. Homophobia and racism just seem normal Staten Island things. I blame it on their seething jealousy of being a forgotten borough and having to take the ferry.

  9. He sounds like an anti-Muslim imposter to me, saying the words "Sharia Law" and "beheading" over and over again, and painting all Muslims with the same brush.

  10. Obviously this idiot is a Christian troll posing as a Muslim. You'd have to be an absolute moron to think otherwise.

  11. I am so sick of fundamentalists of all stripes (but especially Muslims in this case encouraging violence) imposing their views on the rest of the world. On this day that Christians call Good Friday, can't we all just be a little kinder and more loving towards each other? Wouldn't that which we all call God want that?

  12. If he is religious then he is mentally ill.

    Anyone who believes in that 'god' thing, is in need of therapy and perhaps medication.

  13. Hmm. The fact that he doesn't have a thick accent doesn't make him seem less credibly of Saudi origin to me. That said, I suppose y'all are right that no one of that descent who's a practicing Muslim seems likely to parrot such nonsense in a public pronouncement. Still, stranger things have happened.

    Either way, this Chris guy is a sh#thole of a person. And an idiot. But then, so is, say, the President of Iran.

  14. Chris is a christian name. Caller was not really muslim

    Posted by: phil | Mar 29, 2013 11:09:53 AM

  15. He'd have to be really stupid to say his name is Chris if he's a devout Muslim and that's not really his name. Everything about this is off.

  16. Religion seems to be the main source of evil all over the world.

  17. Also, if you're going to field calls from the public, you've got to be faster on your feet. The producer and the host should've been a lot quicker on the kill-switch.

    Posted by: Doubting | Mar 29, 2013 11:22:11 AM

  18. I don't know what is more appalling, the caller or the producer/host of the show who let the caller make his atrocious comments. The host doesn't seem very bright, she asks the man if he has gay friends after he just said that all gay people should be beheaded. What a dumbass.

  19. Something for everyone to remember before jumping on the anti-Islam bandwagon after listening to this psychotic douchenozzle:

    "Sharia Law" is, de facto, Old Testament Law. No sunlight between them.

    ALL organized religion is codified insanity. ALL organized religion is ritualized irrational psychosis. ALL organized religion celebrates delusion and mindless surrender to non-existent bipolar Sky-Daddies with thin skins, passive-aggressive interpersonal practices and anger management problems.

    People who practice organized religion should consider therapy, medication and/or institutionalization.

  20. Poor "Chris" ain't too bright.

    Posted by: DannyEastVillage | Mar 29, 2013 12:18:23 PM

  21. ...and he doesn't know nearly as much about Islam as he thinks he does. Saudi Arabia is hardly the hallmark of Islam--isn't even the most populous Islamic county: Indonesia is--a country that, until the recent wave of reactionary know-nothings getting into power (as they have in this country) was a comparatively liberal society that was open, kind-hearted and welcoming to anyone who wanted to come. Most Indonesians are still that way, I'm quite sure. Just as many if not most Saudis think their government is full of baloney on this and other social issues.

  22. Chris was a "front". He's about as Muslim as I am. Even if he is Muslim, his stupid "so you're against Islam? So you're against Muslims?" schtick is tired and pointless and the program moderator showed why sometimes liberals can be the wrong people to debate gay issues. My answer would always be to a Chris or any alleged Muslim or any evangie-fundie or hasidim or any religious or extremist wing-nute: if your damned religion and its stupid laws say that a person should be beheaded because of their sexual orientation, then you and you're damned religion can go to hell, you can kiss my gay @$$ and I'll be the first to take your stupid "holy book" and toss it on the bonfire.

  23. I wonder if Chris thinks the Saudi government is correct in not allowing women to drive.

    Well, I'll say this for him--Staten Island is the right borough for him.

    Posted by: DannyEastVillage | Mar 29, 2013 12:22:26 PM

  24. Jail him

    Posted by: MArk | Mar 29, 2013 12:35:09 PM

  25. This idiot actually seems to be trying to make an anti-Muslim point essentially.
