Iraqi Shia Leader Calls Fatwa Against Gays. I guess the real question is, when is there not a fatwa against the homos?
Seriously, it’s only a few degrees of separation between a sick cleric like Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani and our own Christofascists, or for that matter, candidates for public office this year (actually, there’s no degrees of separation in Larry Kilgore‘s case).
As Iraq sinks closer and closer to all-out civil war the country’s most influential Shiite cleric, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, is reportedly calling for death to gays and Sunni Moslems.
…On his Web site, used to communicate with Shiite masses throughout the country, Sistani this week issued a fatwa against Sunnis and gays.
He urges followers to kill homosexuals in the “worst, most severe way”.
“Sistani’s murderous homophobic incitement has given a green light to Shia Muslims to hunt and kill lesbians and gay men,â€? says exiled gay Iraqi, Ali Hili, of the London-based gay human rights group OutRage.
