  3. Muslim cannot be gay.

    1. If you say so it must be true. You’re clearly the final decision maker on who is and is not a Muslim.

    2. Or polygamists and paedophiles either. Your muslim marriage laws allow more than one wife and your Mohammed had sex with a 9 year old girl. What a perverted cult you belong to.

    3. I believe they call this the “No true Scotsman” fallacy

      Sweetheart, you need to get yourself to Chariots of a weekend, instead of out dogging in Epping Forest.

      You’ll see plenty of Muslims who can be gay. Whether they’ve recently touched down at Heathrow for two weeks of sex tourism, or resident Muslim, they’re at it like the rest of us.

  4. You’re an idiot! If that’s the case, christians shouldn’t divorce or commit adultery, but they do. Mohammed was a paedophile, yet muslims revere him.

    Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64
    Narrated ‘Aisha:
    that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

    You shouldn’t be judging or codemning others if you’re religious, judge not lest ye shall be judged, moron.

    Hi,
    Is there any way to contact this refugee and see how we can support him?
    I am executive director of the Iranian Railroad for Queer Refugees and please forward my message to him and we would like to help him in order to stop his deportation.

  6. That judge is INSANE.

  7. “It is also believed that some four thousand gay men have been executed for their sexuality in Iran since their Islamic Revolution of 1979.”

    Er, why aren’t the “vast majority of moderate muslims” in Britain staging demos against this genocide? Because more than 70% of British muslims want to see all gay people treated as criminals. http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/peterwhittle/100002250/liberal-gays-are-scared-to-tell-the-truth-about-muslim-homophobia/

    Muslims are the enemy of gay rights. We’ve seen how the gay muslim group IMAAN made sure that the East End Gay Pride march didn’t take place – IMAAN put their loyalty to islam before gay rights.

    Let’s see IMAAN mobilise the millions of muslims in Britain to support this man’s claim (don’t hold your breath).

    If he was a convicted muslim terrorist, you can be sure that Amnesty and Liberty would be defending him.

    1. Some of them do but how can they protest when they are in the UK.

  8. Muslims are not the 0nly enemy of Gay rights – All bigoted religious groups who believe themselves to be superior to those they deem perverted of degenerate are the enemies of Gays and our rights -

      Indeed, but this article isn’t about them is it ….

      Its wrong to kill puppies as well, but again, that’s not what the story is about.

      Its actually about a gay Muslim facing deportation to Iran, so most of us are trying to comment on and around that issue

  9. this story was sent out 22.8.11 by e-mail, but is dated 2005. Can we have some clarification as to the date, and recent developments etc?

  11. Summerskill is right. We don’t need a homophobic immigration judge. He is a disgrace and needs to resign.

  20. Good, good, the right decision, send him back, once he is out of this country he is not our responsibility.

    1. Sister Mary Clarence 27 Mar 2012, 6:06pm

      Maybe you’d like to go with him. Show him the way or something. Maybe you could go instead of him. I’ve go no reason to think he’s obnoxious, but clearly you are, so given the choice if someone has to go, you’d seem the better option.

      Although that said, life is precious, and should never be wasted, so despite your ugly personality, it wouldn’t be right to send you there either.

      So I guess I’ll just have to hope that as you grow up and learn to be a little less ugly

  21. Robert in S. Kensington 7 Feb 2012, 2:57pm

    I was under the impression deportations of this nature would come to an end under the current government.

    I’m sure Judge Freeman’s ruling received rapturous applause from right wingers in the Tory and BNP parties. What a disgrace. If this man is deported and is arrested and subjected to torture or even worse, execution, Judge Freeman and our government will be complicit.

  22. Sister Goodlove 8 Feb 2012, 12:41pm

    I know two Iranians who are resident here now after originally claiming asylum for being gay.

    One of them stayed with me for two months. Both of them are now married to women and have children, and the one who I helped recently told me in a slip of the tongue how repulsed he is by homosexuals.

    Claiming to be gay – or gay friendly – has become a wise career move.

    1. Sister Mary Clarence 27 Mar 2012, 6:17pm

      Shocking really that you didn’t spot it earlier and report the abuse to the authorities. Its irresponsible people like you that make life more difficult for genuine gay asylum seekers to be treated fairly, not to mention the cost to us. Can’t understand how you’d miss it frankly – if I had my way, you’d be facing charges

  23. Gigi Nikpour 1 Mar 2012, 2:26pm

    It is unfortunate that there was no reference to numerous cases of gay imprisonments in Iran by the government of Islamic Republic. The fact that a “threat” to his life exists given that the constitution and criminal laws of the Islamic Republic “CLEARLY” stated homosexuality is a crime punishable by death should be adequate grounds for Principle of Non-refoulement (Art. 33 C-1951). How is it that the international human rights laws DO NOT APPLY to this case?

  24. This is what could happen to the western world if the Christians take over, we will have religious police and they can kill anybody they do not like.
