And how exactly did he lie about gays in Iran? I ask for facts. You seem intelligent, so I expect to see a fine rebuttal.
Calling anyone who disagrees with your views 'borderline retarded' creates a scenrio where you must beyond a shadow of a doubt make your case.
I await your response.

This claim is based on completely false pretenses!!!! It is simply flair to make americans hate Iran!! Can't you people see through the lies of the media?!?! Or do you have to be in Advertising to really understand this kind of psychological bs?!?!?
Listen, "they have laws in place" doesnt mean they are hanging people every day for being gay. Don't you think that would have a much stronger media presence if it was true? I just won't believe it until I see it. I don't believe Iran's leader is truely that against human rights. But please.. prove me wrong

Iran Does Far Worse Than Ignore Gays
(visit the link for the full news article)
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s seemingly ridiculous claim that "we don’t have homosexuals, like in your country" masks the cruel reality that his government does far worse than ignore gays, human rights groups charge.
"There are criminal laws on the books in Iran that allows for people to be killed for being homosexual," said Paula Ettelbrick, executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission.

Good point. Iran will figure it out someday and so, until then, so what if a few gays get strung up right? Your logic is, well, illogical. If we follow your logic, Americans can can never speak out against racism because slavery was once legal in this country.
It amazes me that so many are bending over backwards to defend and, in some cases, attempt to glorify this man.

For years they were in "the closet", then they turned to religion, monasteries, became Catholic Priests, so they would be away from society because THEY ARE NOT ACCEPTED BY YOU.
What do you base this statement on? Catholic priests are hardly "away" form society. I thought priests followed that lifestyle because of thier beliefs not because they could go be gay.
