Executions → Execution of Gay Teens in Iran (July 19, 2005)
Two gay teenagers Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni were hanged in public in the Iranian city of Mashhad on July 19, 2005. Photos of the execution released by Iranian Students News Agency showed the two teens crying in the truck driving them to the gallows in Edalat (Justice) Square.
The case had considerable global resonance. Iran has been under fire by international human rights groups for executing those teenagers for almost one year. But there were some interesting facts regarding this case. The first one is that Ayaz and Mahmoud were caught by Iranian Police during having anal sex with a 13 year old boy. Because the age of consent for men in Iran is 15, this 13 year old boy was automatically then classified raped by Mahmoud and Ayaz. So, in the eyes of the Iranian law, that boy was raped! The second one was those teens were aged 18 and 19 (death penalty is forbidden in Iran for those under the age of 18 at the time of their crime; almost no one wrote about this in mass media). The father of the 13 year old boy also officially claimed his son was raped.
|@ilovegays: Very true. If being gay is an illness, than why not just kill everyone who has a mental illness? It's ignorant thinking like that which lead to so many mental ill people being murdered by the Nazis.|
|@Sinan: You worship a god who condones murdering children. Yes. I know better than that bigoted imaginary friend of yours. Stop hiding behind myths, and pick up a fucking science book. Modern science proved homosexuality is NOT a mental illness. If you are going to ignore science over the ramblings of long dead bigots, than you should be the one hanging.|
|Good, more faggots should be hanged like this.|
You are sick.
So are the religions that tolerates this.
|And John it said that officials caught them in the |
act so? Good fight brotha!!
|Hmm John if your gay in country like you |
probably secretly do it. So they probably did rape
the poor boy!!:( I'm not a whore >:(
|Homosexuality IS a mental ilness and forbidden by all religions. It ruins the sexual life, family life and damages the society in long term. You morons think you know better than God?|
|The executions I mean, the sight of death is tolerable to my eyes|
|Can you blame me for not squirming at this shit?|
|Fuck Humanity and it's intolerance!|
