  1. The thing I don’t understand is, why do they hate us this much? Why should we be ‘killed in the worst, most severe way possible’? We don’t want to hurt anyone, we just want to live in peace and love…This is a very sad world :(

  2. Who is more evil, the gay person or the executioners?

    This is the SAME. toxic religiosity that has taken over our White House. Almost as bad is the resistance to science and reality.

    Ban all religious hate speech from the koran and the bible .
    in the western world we should take the religions to court
    Islam religion and their leaders are guilty
    this should be taken to court all those people books advocating to kill should be tried to the full extent of the law
    Christians fear little better

  5. and we invaded this country, why?!

    certainly not to increase human rights, as Iraq tumbles back into the dark ages.

  6. Islam at its very best — who wants more of it?

    “Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, issued a fatwa, or religious decree, which declared that gays and lesbians should be ‘killed in the worst, most severe way possible,”

    if you’ve got nothing useful to say, please take your childish tiff somewhere else.

    Well I am a Kurd from Arbil originally,I am not a Homosexual.But I am really ashamed by what some of my people do(like this judge),we as Kurds and most of the third world just don’t understand freedom and what it’s all about(do you people remember the Muslim protest against the pictures of Muhammad).
    All what I can say is:I support the jailed doctor 100% and ask the human rights groups around the world to help,support and free the jailed doctor please.
    Kurdistan is much better than the rest of Iraq and the middle-east maybe even the third world but we still need more freedom.
