Leading UK Imam: It’s OK To Kill Gays

Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs is reporting that an Imam in the UK is preaching that it is OK to kill gays.

The leading imam in Manchester confirms that he thinks the execution of sexually active gay men is justified, the rights group Outrage reported.

Arshad Misbahi of the Manchester Central Mosque confirmed his views in a conversation to John Casson, a local psychotherapist.

Casson said: “I asked him if the execution of gay Muslims in Iran and Iraq was an acceptable punishment in Sharia law, or the result of culture, not religion.

”He told me that in a true Islamic state, such punishments were part of Islam: If the person had had a trial, at which four witnesses testified that they had seen the actual homosexual acts.“

”I asked him what would be the British Muslim view? He repeated that in an Islamic state these punishments were justified. They might result in the deaths of thousands but if this deterred millions from having sex, and spreading disease, then it was worthwhile to protect the wider community.“

”I checked again that this was not a matter of tradition, culture or local prejudice. ‘No,’ he said, ‘It is part of the central tenets of Islam: that sex outside marriage is forbidden; this is stated in the Koran and the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had stated that these punishments were due to such behaviours.’”

    Well, looks like the religion of peace is spreading love and joy yet again. I dont agree with the gay lifestyle either, but God didnt say to kill people for being gay. What is so ironic is this: the liberals want to “get along” and placate these Muslims at all costs, the majority of gays are liberals, and they are voting for people who are bargaining with Muslims who want to kill gays. What is the rationale in that?

    There is no rationale. Liberals are not rational.
