  1. Yet further evidence that there are somehow “moderate” Muslims. We hear this sort of thing time and again from pillars of the Muslim Community and reflects exactly the sort of thing Islam teaches its people. Yet again Islam has been caught out and yet again we have to realise that Moderate Islam is a myth.

  2. This needs to be in the mainstream press and this bigot should be struck off.Will the islamic medical association be condemning him? Don’t hold your breath.Will the local MP demand his sacking or would that lose too many votes?

    “There is punishment and fine if you throw rubbish or filth in the streets. The gays are worse than the ordinary careless citizen”.I hope he’s better at medicine than he is at English. Perhaps his son did write it; is he three years old?I doubt very much that he’ll be struck off, the GMC always closes ranks when a Doctor does or says something terrible. If his PCT sacks him, he’ll simply end up elsewhere.

  4. I find it ironic that the response of some people on this blog to this bigotry is their own brand bigotry. Who decided that these people are “pillars of the Muslim Community”? When the Pope or a Bishop of the Anglican Church, the offical representatives of these Churches, come out with something, you don’t tar all Christians with the same brush!By giving these people more importance than they are due, are you not giving there words undue importance as well?

  5. Christianity in general and Catholocism in particular often come in for no holds barred criticism of their homophobia. A lot of this is theologically based and not just one errant Christian.It is no different with islam. We should be free to criticise the ideology that inspires their homophobia as well as condemn the individuals who articulate it.

  6. Again Ali, instead of coming outright and condeming what this bigot GP says you attack those who criticise him like myself.You are typical of all those Left Wing, “Moderate” Muslims, the second anyone stands up to your tedious and tiresome death cult you instantly attck accusing us of Islamophobia etc. I can assure you that my fear and dread is not based on any sort of “irrational” fear as with any phobia but on the start evidence all around us. I am sick to death of switching on my TV and having two thirds of the news taken up with the lastest round of violence, death and plots perpetuated by followers of Islam.Time Ali to come off your high horse and outrightly condemn what’s being done in the name of chosen religion, such as the comments by this GP.

    To quote Roberto:we have to realise that Moderate Islam is a myth.We hear this sort of thing time and again from pillars of the Muslim Community and reflects exactly the sort of thing Islam teaches its people.the second anyone stands up to your tedious and tiresome death cult you instantly attck accusing us of Islamophobiamy fear and dread is not based on any sort of “irrational” fear as with any phobia but on the start evidence all around us—Hiding behind Free Speach discredits Free Speach.

  9. Elizabeth, I will use my right to free speech all the time I am able to. If the Islamofacists ever get their way then it’s bye bye free speech!

  10. It’s interesting how many on here forget that this thread is about a GP (yes to many a Pillar within the community). A GP who heads the Islamic Medical Association which represents 99% of Muslim GPs. A GP who makes vile, homophobis and frankly illegal comments about the LGBT Community. Yet, all we hear from the Leftists and even a spokesperson of Moderate Islam (Ali) is condemnation for those who condemn another outrageous remark from a “Pillar of the Muslim Community” i.e. this GP.Not a single word is uttered against this GP. Why not? Time and again we witness the communists, extreme Left and Moderate Islamists line up to defend what is the indefensible – that is, outrageous homophobic outbursts from “respected” members of the Muslim community. Many people have seen through this smokescreen and frankly have grown tired of it.We in the LGBT community need to be ever vigilant of such tirades – even from Christian fanatics as well.

    I can understand why to a certain extent, in the current climate we are living in, that some of the comments might conceivable be considered in some quarters as being a tiney weenie bit islamophobic. Maybe they are, maybe they aren’t.However I make this posting with my head held high, content in the knowledge that I am not guilty of any differential treatment, based on religious belief or anything else as far as I’m away for that matter.I can say with my hand on my heart I have slagged of any and all religions without exception, as anyone who has ready previous postings of mine may remember. Religion is a crutch for the weak and a haven for bigots.The President of the Islamic Medical Association is quite obviously happy dish the shi … criticism, so I trust he is equally happy to receive it.I can only wonder about the standard of care recieved by those with a lifestyle he did not approve of.

  12. Karl Marx had it right when he said…”religion is the opiate of the people”. Have to agree with Sr. Mary Clarence though. Religion is for weak, insecure, frightened people and a hotbed for fomenting discrimination, hypocrisy and intolerance against us, the last vestige of hatred left on this planet.
