iraqi gays tortured and killed

Sadrist Sheik Ammar al-Saadi would like to distance himself from the murderers. He denies involvement in the killings. He states that he and other clerics “only urged people to stop practicing homosexuality”. Here al-Saadi is blind to the fact that his general attitude forms the platform from which the killers justify their actions. While holding such beliefs regarding homosexuality is not (and should not be) against the law, society’s sane must work to expose such dangerous bigotry through education. These views stimulate conflict and suffering for many.
