Found One

posted by on October 30 at 14:14 PM

It turns out there is a homosexual in Iran—but just one, and not for long.

Child offender Makwan Moloudzadeh, an Iranian Kurd, is believed to be at risk of imminent execution. He has reportedly been convicted of lavat-e iqabi (anal sex) for the alleged rape of a 13-year-old boy. Makwan Moloudzadeh was aged 13 at the time of the alleged offence. His death sentence has been passed to the Office for the Implementation of Sentences and he is due to be executed in public, near his home.

The witnesses have recanted, but the execution is still on.

But, since their President say they don't exist, obviously the charges are false, and he should be let free, no?

It stands to reason.

My heart breaks for that poor boy and his family.

lavat-e iqabi (anal sex)

I thought that translated to "sex in a lavatory" which, as we've seen on Slog today, is full-steam-ahead here in the USA.

See? The Bushies and Ahmedinejad do have something in common: they both advocate the execution of juvenile offenders.

Sad.

Are you really saying that molesting a child is the same as having consensual gay sex with an adult? Isn't that, like, the complete opposite of what you would usually say?

@7 - If you read carefully you'll see that both the alleged victim and the alleged perp were 13 at the time of the offense. Even in US law, that wouldn't qualify as "molesting a child" (which is a crime committed by an adult against a minor, regardless of consensuality).

Absent any further details, it sounds like two horny kids messing around...much like previous cases whcih resulted in executions.

That whole region seems stuck in the 14th century with gays taking the place of witches. Its hard to be all modern and cool when you still fully believe in a poorly written book O'crap that tells you to kill bunches of people.

At least Christians in this Country only really give lip service to much of their dumb book.

@8 - um, you have heard of the teen convicted of consensual oral sex that was sentenced for a long long time, haven't you?

Yeah, we're just as hypocritical.

@10 -- except that teen was released yesterday, not executed.

Women don't have it so good in that region either.

I think you mean "that whole religion". @9, too.

@13, fair enough. You could really just delete both that and whole and keep religion though.

@12, true. Though at least being accused of being a witch is not one of them. I guess why go to all the trouble of making up stories when you can just beat them for not wearing the right hat.

@10 Plus, there was a 2 or 3 year difference in age, which is what got him the child molestation charge.

Maybe they were just putting on a street performance of the Kite Runner.
