On July 19, 2005, the Iranian regime executed two teenagers.
Their crime? They were homosexuals.
On October 24, 2006, we get an article in the Gay Community News:
The leading imam in Manchester, confirms that he thinks the execution of sexually active gay men is justified, the rights group Outrage reported.
He is quite clear on the matter:
"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.'"
By definition, all gay sex is outside marriage. In that light, read what Muhammed said about legal killings:
"The blood of a Muslim who confesses that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that I am His Apostle, cannot be shed except in three cases: In Qisas for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims."
- Gay sex or adultery = Illegal sex. Punishment = Death.
- Raping sex-slaves = Legal sex. Praise be to Allah!
