The new president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, declared in an anti-gay tirade in 2014 that same-sex relations are “nothing but savagery.” The US-based Center for Human Rights in Iran said in its Tuesday fact sheet that “Iranian government officials engage in hate speech against the LGBTQ community, which encourages state and societal violence against individuals. For example, Ebrahim Raisi, who is now Iran’s president, said in 2014 (when he headed Iran’s judiciary) that homosexuality is ‘nothing but savagery.”’

Peter Tatchell, a prominent British LGBT activist and human rights campaigner, told The Jerusalem Post that “Raisi’s ignorant bigoted views are commonplace among the Iranian religious and political elite. They sanction the death penalty for consenting same-sex relations. That is the real savagery, along with the torture of political prisoners. Raisi is allegedly implicated in the barbaric execution of thousands of dissidents in the 1980s.”

They justify the torture and death of homosexuals under a supposed definition of savagery but refuse to accept their savagery of the LGBTQ+ as well as many others that don't agree with their ideology, sharia law, and hate. Same sex relations are a sin against God but in no way should we advocate or be a part of their murder. It's a sin in the same way all other non-marital sexual immorality is, and we would never push for the murder of an adulterer or someone involved in pre-marital sex or looking at magazine or tv or internet pornography. This man is satanic and this perspective proves his heinous heart.

While I'm not a proponent of sharia law, when a govmint has laws on the books and sentences for specific crimes, I question whether we can call it murder.

I support the death penalty for crimes in the USA. I don't believe it is murder when a criminal given a death penalty in the USA is put to death by the govmint. When a govmint has laws against an ideology, against a belief system and sentences people for ideological or political reasons, now I see that a little differently.

But it's ok for grown to rape little boys, marry and rape little girls and cut off the lips and fingers of women for wearing lipstick and nail polish..
