Here's a Shocker

Thanks to board buddy KathyGnome and the Advocate:

Iraqi cleric wants gays killed in "most severe way"

In the midst of sectarian violence that threatens to drag Iraq into civil war, the country's influential Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has issued a violent death order against gays and lesbians on his Web site, according to London-based LGBT human rights groups OutRage.

Written in Arabic, the fatwa comes from a press conference with the powerful religious cleric, where he was asked about the judgment on sodomy and lesbianism. “Forbidden,” Sistani answered, according to OutRage, “Punished, in fact, killed. The people involved should be killed in the worst, most severe way of killing.”

Is this really news to anyone? Like you thought we were going to get warm, fuzzy Shiites instead of mean, nasty Al Qaeda?

Puuuuuuuuuhlease grrlfriends! Get your face out of your makeup bag, turn off the shopping channel, and read a book.
