Iranian MP and energy committee member Mohsen Yahyavi had a lot to say about gays during an Inter-Parliamentary Union meeting with the British.
He said that if homosexual activity is in private there is no problem, but those in overt activity should be executed [he initially said tortured but changed it to executed]. He argued that homosexuality is against human nature and that humans are here to reproduce. Homosexuals do not reproduce.
Tortured and killed? This man means business. The British government, however, doesn’t seem to be that concerned. Labour MP Ann Clywd remarked yesterday, “It is of great concern that these attitudes persist and we made it clear what we felt.”
The Times does not quote any such objections.
