God said it's Ok to kill Gays ?

We are indeed living in an increasingly demented world with sickening thoughts, opinions, and misguided values being forced down on us by mad clerics, lunatics, and half past six religious men.

Last week, I am puked by the reported sermon given by an asshole in Australia to degrade women. Tonite, this piece of equally sickening news attracted my attention. According to a cleric in Manchester, he claims that it is okay to kill gay men in the name of his religion. I was consistently told, the religion he represent is a religion of tolerance and peace. I really need to check the dictionary again to find out the exact definition of these two hypocrited words.

At the home front, I was saddened by a local news report that religious enforcement officers raided a hotel room occupied by an American couple ( a retired American policeman Randal Barnhart, 62, and his wife Carol, 61 ) at 2:00AM in the morning in Langkawi and demanded to see their marriage certificate. What is the purpose of terrorizing an old American couple ? Sickening !

Such a noble idea of religious values but screwed up mentalities. Religiously educated but not learned. Man of religion defending the misinterpreted values of God in the hope of gaining selfish favours to attain sainthoods and paradise after they died. But again, I am curious, did God specifically asked these misguided people to defend His values ? I have yet to come across evidences of God presenting himself ordering human beings to commit violences in his name. To be fair, I have heard of many real incidences of Jesus Christ visualized himself to save many lost souls in their moment of crisis. The elusiveness of spirituality is indeed a fertile ground to be abused by lunatics in their hallucinated state of minds to talk nonsenses and preached intolerances to other brainless souls, to have misguided purpose in life. SAD.

I am not a gay nor do I encourage homosexuality or lesbianisms. But we need to respect the basic tenets of human rights. It is really not up to us to insist how others should lead their lives. If we believe in God and abides by his teachings, the most fundamental religious commitment we should hold sacred, is to respect, honour, and defend other people's ways of life and religion.

For heaven sake, please practice your so called sacred religious values in your own home and stop looking at other people's backyard to seek respect for your religion. You will get none. Respect are earned but not through intimidations. If you don't like meat, then by all means, please don't touch the meats. If you don't like gays or lesbians, please don't become a gay or lesbians. If you don't like adultery, please do not commit adultery. BUT please refrained from imposing your values to infringe and trespass into other people's rights. Every religion has their own values. And every human beings has the rights to adopt their own choices and preferences. What makes you think that your religion is far more superior than other religion ? Who give you the rights to criticize other people's way of life ? God ?

A person who has no self respect, low self esteem, and suffering from inferiority complex will always attempt to ignorantly glorify and propagate his own religion and way of life as superior. Like it or not, this is an established fact. Please seek no more apology when you are perceived as what you are by your own words, deeds, and actions.

As much as you want other to tolerate and your religion and way of life, you need to initiate the action first to practice tolerance and respect for others. This is called karma. If you don't understand this concept, please ask any Buddhist, they will be most happy to enlighten you in a very PEACEFUL manner.

In sincerity and with highest respect to MY OWN RELIGION, let me say this to you " Peace be with you, peace be unto you, peace be radiate from you, and peace be your way of life. May the almighty with his amazing grace blessed you with a tongue that is incapable of inciting hatreds and ignorances. May the almighty with his greatest wisdom blessed you with a brain that is capable of rational thinkings. May the almighty with his merciful forgiveness blessed you with a heart that is capable to love and reject violences."

Let those who commits no sin cast the first stone. We are all sinners. We are all sinners. And, how come some perverted sinners think they have higher morality then the rest of the sinners ? One cuckold flew over rest and over the nest and have no where to land. Namo Amithaba Buddha. Om Mani Padme hum...

The leading imam in Manchester, confirms that he thinks the execution of sexually active gay men is justified, the rights group Outrage reported.

Arshad Misbahi of the Manchester Central Mosque confirmed his views in a conversation to John Casson, a local psychotherapist.

Casson said: "I asked him if the execution of gay Muslims in Iran and Iraq was an acceptable punishment in Sharia law, or the result of culture, not religion.

"He told me that in a true Islamic state, such punishments were part of Islam: If the person had had a trial, at which four witnesses testified that they had seen the actual homosexual acts."

"I asked him what would be the British Muslim view? He repeated that in an Islamic state these punishments were justified. They might result in the deaths of thousands but if this deterred millions from having sex, and spreading disease, then it was worthwhile to protect the wider community."

"I checked again that this was not a matter of tradition, culture or local prejudice. 'No,' he said, 'It is part of the central tenets of Islam: that sex outside marriage is forbidden; this is stated in the Koran and the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) had stated that these punishments were due to such behaviours.'"

Gay man rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said, "It is disturbing that some British imams are endorsing the execution of gay and lesbian Muslims.

"Imam Arshad Misbahi's homophobic attitudes give comfort and succor to queer-bashers. They encourage conflict and disharmony between Manchester's large gay and Muslim communities.

"Muslim and gay people know the pain of prejudice and discrimination. We should be working together to challenge homophobia and Islamophobia. I hope liberal Muslims will speak out in defense of the human rights of lesbians and gay men," said Tatchell.

"Islam is a very tolerant religion and celebrates the human diversity in its core message," Ali said.

"The holy book Qur'an does not mention anywhere about the execution or killing of human beings on the basis of their sexuality. What surprises is this obsession of the Islamic clerics to killing and execution. Why? What about dialogue? Discussion?

"Arshad Misbahi's comparison of same-sex relation to adultery is nothing but ignorant and utterly irresponsible rhetoric, manifesting the wrong teachings of Islam. The media should . . . not take it for granted as the general view of the Muslim community all over."
