MaltaStar: Concerns on Imam’s statements
25 November 2009 18:44

Moviment Graffitti expressed its concernes about the Imam El Sadi’s comments where he likened same-sex marriage to marriage involving a cat or a dog and where he spoke about inhumane practices to deal with persons who commit certain crimes.

Moviment Graffitti stated that it stands for respect to all religious beliefs, these latter should also respect all people, irrespective of their sexual orientation. “Homosexuals have the right to be respected in every country and we also believe that these people should be recognised as couples and enjoy the same rights as those enjoyed by heterosexual couples.”

”We understand that El Sadi’s comments do not represent all Muslims, same as the homophobic comments of certain representatives of the Catholic Church do not represent all Catholics. We hope that in the near future the two sides can come closer together and that there will be respect from both sides and work together for the benefit of a more inclusive society.”
