  1. I guess we don’t think too highly of him either!

    I would rather be likened to a pig or dog than be likened to an Iranian cleric.

    1. Don’t worry, you’re worse than both.

  3. You only have to look at barbarians like these to understand why Iran is such a dump.

  4. That head wrap belongs on another planet along with him and his ridiculous thoughts and theories!

    Our society is far more civilised than you give credit for sunshine!

  5. Just another mendacious, ignorant, cretinous, theocratic pig.

  6. Someone remind me: which century are we living in?

    1. Not the same century as the Iranian ayatollahs, that’s for sure.

      1. Or world.

  7. It’s funny because dogs and pigs do engage in same-sex sex acts.

    1. Not in his imaginary little world it would appear!

    I guess “sharia law” has no problem with heterosexual pedophiles in the Islamic culture. They have been “marrying” 9 year old girls since the 7th century.

    1. Robert in S. Kensington 18 Apr 2012, 7:06pm

      Yes, a religious cult that condones paedophilia!

    “me thinks he dust protest too much” The guy is wearing a dress and a dirty rug with a towel on his head

    1. So you think that makes him gay, do you? You should get out a bit more often.

  10. Perhaps he will feel more chilled if a further couple of 16 year olds are hung from cranes

    Why do people put up with this guff? Are they unable to think for themselves?

    1. Obviously people can’t think , thats why they are brainwashed by cults like islam.

  11. What does he know? I saw two MALE dogs going at it in my neighbour’s garden yesterday.

  12. I don’t find his support of subjugation of women, public flogging, torture and perveting of natural justice particularly pleasant either.

  13. To be insulted by someone like this is a compliment. It indicates you must be doing something right.

  14. I’d like to criticize the Iranian cleric and the government there for their repeated acts of brutality against it’s own populace in the guise of “Sharia-law”.

    I’d also like to consider the ayatollah for the award of “Worst Crossdresser Ever”. Seriously, if you can’t pull off wearing a dress, don’t bloody wear it.

    I’m surprised the Daily Mail and Telegraph haven’t endorsed it, yet. Many of their readers hold the same views.

    1. de Villiers 19 Apr 2012, 10:36am

      Robert – you undermine the severity of the system in Iran if you are ready to compare it equally to the Telegraph and Daily Mail.

    sorry mate, a gay rights movement will be coming your way eventually. granted islamic states are a little behind some of the western countries but it will happen.

    1. There is a gay rights movement in Iran. Brave people!

      From The Guardians version of this article:
      “Despite the horrific punishment for homosexuals in Iran, the gay community in the country is alive underground and has won some recognition by coming out in defiance of the regime.

      In September 2011, a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Iranians launched a campaign on Facebook, highlighting the discrimination against sexual minorities in Iran where homosexuals are put to death.”

      1. chris lowcase 18 Apr 2012, 10:52pm

        very brave. i had it so easy, it frightening to think of what other less fortunate people have to go through.

    2. a little behind – more like a century behind!

  17. Such low-life fundamentalist Islamofascists are the ones worse than pigs and dogs. The Iranian people, most of whom are moderate Moslems or non-believers terried into silence, deserve to be rid of this disgusting and evil Medieval theocracy.

  18. “Even animals … dogs and pigs don’t engage in this disgusting act, but yet they [western politicians] pass laws in favour of them in their parliaments.”
    What’s wrong with pigs and dogs?
    And as others have noted, my Mum’s cocker spaniel engaged in ‘that act’ at every given opportunity when it wasn’t attempting to hump my leg, so I’m guessing Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli knows next to sweet FA about dogs, pigs or gays for that matter.
    What exactly is his area of expertise again?

    1. Unfairness and lack of compassion.

  19. Of course homosexuality doesn’t occur in nature. …Oh wait. Yes it does. In over 400 reported species of mammals. Oops~

    Honestly, why is organized religion still about? I’m all for faith, but honestly people, keep your opinions about other people’s lifestyles and bedroom activities to yourselves.

  20. Like people are going to listen to people who cut the heads off of Christians.

  21. How odd. I find it more disgusting to throw stones at a person buried in the ground until they bleed to death from brain damage. I’m going to find this guys address and send him hate mail.

  22. Quite how someone who ritually avoids pigs and dogs like the plague could know anything about their sexual habits is beyond me. Then again this is a man who is paid to interpret a book of dodgy rantings attributed to a mentally ill seventh century paedophile warlord. Cognitive ability is clearly not his strong suit.

  23. Iran is an uncivilised country! Any western country or person who has dealings with this monstrous country should hang their heads in shame!

    1. More like insane or mentally ill country. Unfortunately the former president of my country, Luis Inácio Lula da Silva dealt with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as if he was a close friend, but again he also dealt with Hugo Chavez, so he is probably just as insane as them.

    Why do old, unmarried, celibate men dressed in dresses continue to dictate to the masses what is right and wrong? Some serious questions need to be raised.

    1. Muslim clerics are not required to be celibate.

      And if you think only women can wear robes, your knowledge of the world and of history must be as limited as your knowledge of religion.

  25. “An Iranian cleric has described gay men and the politicians who pass laws protecting them as being ‘worse than pigs and dogs’.”

    Looks like pigs and dogs are higher than any Iranian cleric then, doesn’t it!!!

  26. Pigs and dogs are the creation of Almighty God [or Allah, if you prefer] …. Iranian Clerics are the creation of Man – no contest … pigs and dogs WIN every time!!!!!!

  27. Michael Inkpin-Leissner 18 Apr 2012, 11:40pm

    No compromise anymore. I had enough of this hate and bland stupidity!

  28. Errol Semple 19 Apr 2012, 12:27am

    Islam is hate.

  29. stop all aid going to that discusting country

    1. How much UK aid goes to Iran?

  30. johnny33308 19 Apr 2012, 6:09am

    An Iranian cleric insulting us! Hahahahahaha…a dog or a pig has evolved well beyond any Iranian cleric!

  31. I quite like dogs and pigs are fine as well, at least you can eat them!
    Iranian clerics seem to have no use or purpose whatsoever.

  32. GingerlyColors 19 Apr 2012, 9:49am

    I would like to critizise Iran for the following disgusting acts:
    Hanging of people from the jibs of cranes for ‘crimes’ such as homosexuality.
    Stoning of women for adultery.
    Amputation of thieves’ limbs – how are they are supposed to reform if they cannot find jobs due to their imposed disability.
    Hijacking of airliners.
    Support for Hamas and Hizbollah.
    The bombing of Jewish targets in Buenos Aires in the 1990’s.
    Forcing women to wear the hijab.
    Plus 1001 other human rights abuses.

  33. Dangermouse 19 Apr 2012, 10:26am

    Nuke em !!!!!

  34. The cleric’s comments don’t sound that different from what many in Europe say about the United States. At least the hatred is has strong. Just thought I’d keep things in perspective. Carry on….

  35. Strange and rather hypercritical – given that so many Muslim men use their wives ass to pleasure themselves without need of protection and negating the risk of pregnancy – whether a ‘pig’ muslim is penerating a woman’s ass or not – it is still ‘sodomy’ –
    So once again it’s one rule for muslim men and another rule for everyone else – Sounds like misogyny to me!

  36. Iran, a country dragged kicking and screaming from the 14th to the 16th century

  37. “Even animals … dogs and pigs don’t engage in this disgusting act,…”

    Actually they do. Almost every animal in the world does, including most of the mammals and all of the superior apes, like us. More than 1,500 species have been observed to engage in homosexual acts.

  38. Most Iranian politicians have had gay sex repeatedly because they grew up in a sex segregated society. They are just embarassed to admit and talk about how widespread gay sex is in the Mideast. It’s like a game of machismo to them but it is the giant pink elephant in the room whenever the topic is broached in the Mideast. Sharia law requires 4 witnesses to the act because throughout history Islamists have widely engaged in gay sex. The typical Islamist is historically bi. Just look at the most popular poetry in the region. “Guys are for fun, women are for breeding” is the best way to describe Islams take on relations. Desert religions have grown obsolete. Everyone realizes it. That’s why two-thirds of so-called followers of desert religions are non-practicing.
