Skip to comments.Imam accused of 'gay death' slur [Muslim executions 'for the common good']

A gay rights campaigner has accused an Imam of saying the execution of gay Muslims to stop the spread of disease is "for the common good of man".
Dr John Casson visited Arshad Misbahi, the Imam at Manchester Central Mosque, to discuss concerns over the execution of homosexual Muslims in Iran.
Dr Casson said the comments were made in a private meeting but he wrote them down afterwards.
The Imam did not deny the comments but said he had been misinterpreted.
Mr Misbahi said he was only talking about the Islamic perspective on homosexuality and stressed he would make a statement later on Thursday.
Dr Casson, a physiotherapist, said he was shocked at what had been said.
He said he set up the meeting to open dialogue with the Muslim community after reading about two gay teenagers, Mahmood Asghari and Ilyas Mahoni, who were hanged in Iran.
He decided to contact Muslim leaders to show he felt this was unacceptable.
"I would very much welcome the Imam's clarification of him telling me and the public exactly what the views of Islam are," he said.
"I would apologise if I had misunderstood what he said to me.
"I wrote down what he said to me straight after the interview."
Massoud Shadjareh, from the Islamic Human Rights Commission, said this was not an issue for Muslims.
He said homosexuality was "not compatible" with Islam, just as it was not compatible with other orthodox religions, such as Catholicism.
He added: "Just one man talking to another becomes an issue, Muslims are being put under a magnifying glass.
"I think that this is part of demonising Muslims," he said.

While practicing homosexuality is incompatible with Catholicism, it is hardly the death sentence that it is under Islam.
Oh, I'm sure all of Islam will change their minds because he feels it's unacceptable. What an ego.
That was my first thought too. Catholics may condemn, but they wouldn't murder them...they would try to save them & their souls.
Second, this is another interesting article in which the values of the liberal left are being attacked by islam. The first was our lovely imam in Australia with his cat call comments.
I am wondering if the liberals are only now starting to see the tip of the iceberg called islam. That girls and guys gone wild will not only be unacceptable, but will actually get them killed.
Are they going to begin to realize that they are making a deadly alliance?
someone inform the imam that thousands of muslim men a year are contracting HIV and other STDs when they go on their whore chasing vacations in India, southeast asia, and Europe.
"While practicing homosexuality is incompatible with Catholicism, it is hardly the death sentence that it is under Islam."
Expecting the Islamics to just transfer them to a different Parish ?
But seriously folks, isn't the view of Catholics that it is an "after-death" sentence - eternity in Hell ?
Well, if that ain't gonna put a crimp in the Dhimmicrat-Mooselimb lovefest going on right now...
Awkward. So perfectly awkward. Nyak!
But no mention of the goats?
"Gays vs. Islamofascists"
Coming soon, to a bath-house near you!
" The execution of Muslims is "for the common good of man".
Would they be ok with that statement from a terrorized world?
Makes much more sense .
It's the Muslim part that threatens the common good of man.
Who does the left care more about, gays or mohammideans?
The 'gay rights' chap was probably put on the Muslim 'to-do list'... once the Caliphate of Englandstan is univerally acknowledged.
Whatever are the leftists to do?
They pushed Islam to the fore to trash Western values and now the Frankenstein has turned on them.
The Muslim answer to everything ..... death.
I believe even dying is punishable by a beheading.
Maybe it should be.
Homosexuals don't want the right to practise their perversion on private. They want the right to shove it in the faces of normal citizens, to have it condoned, approved, and encouraged, to have the right to proselytize their sodomy among the young and impressionable.
Even the Muslims can't be wrong 100% of the time.
