Turn or burn

[Homosexuals deserve] “the same punishment as any sexual pervert – the same as the fornicator. The schools of thought disagree about the punishment. Some say they should be punished like fornicators… Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them, and so on. There is disagreement.”
— the refreshingly Phelps-like commentary of Muslim cleric Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi

Jeremy of Good As You found this loon. The best part of the transcript of the interview with this freakshow is that he actually addresses lesbianism if only briefly (we’re usually off the radar in most of these diatribes).

Interviewer: There is an issue that some people may find strange. If homosexuals and lesbians belong to the same category – an inclination towards the same sex – why are there different punishments for men and women, for homosexuals and lesbians?

Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: A punishment for who?

Interviewer: For homosexuals and lesbians – the punishment for a woman who favors women, and for a man who favors men.

Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Lesbianism is not as bad as homosexuality, in practical terms.

Would those “practical terms” have anything to do with his desire to see girl-on-girl action/porn?

Hat tips, Paul and Holly.
