Times: AD says Imam should apologise

Monday, 23rd November 2009

Alternattiva Demokratika Żgħażagħ has expressed its disapproval of Imam Mohamed El Sadi's views on his "explicit" homophobia and his justifying physical violence on people who commit a criminal offence.

ADŻ spokesman Dirk Urpani said: "While we are all out for freedom of speech, it is highly irresponsible for a religious leader to promote anti-social policies."
Though he was referring to non-European countries, certain rights were universal and acts such as cutting off hands of people convicted of theft should be condemned by anyone living in a democratic country, he added.

Mr El Sadi's homophobic references were equally disgusting and he should apologise to the gay community, especially for ridiculing same-sex marriages or unions by comparing them to "marrying a cat or a dog", AD said.

  1. Hi,

    where are labour's LGBT section statements?

    ohh right. Nowhere.

    This goes to show that Labour's rhetoric fizzles down to nothing.

    In fact I like to ask a general question about human identity. Between sexuality and political affiliation - should a person consider himself gay first and labour first or the other way round? Well there's no doubt Albert Gauci Cunningham considers himself labour first....
