Iran: "Democracy and Human Rights Have No Place in Islamic Theology"

Mesbah Yazdi from Ayatollah Khamenei's Office: Democracy and Human Rights Have No Place in Islamic Theology:
"Mesbah Yazdi from Ayatollah Khamenei's Office: Democracy and Human Rights Have No Place in Islamic Theology

Hardline Shiite cleric and the spiritual and religious father of members of the administration said during a speech he delivered at ayatollah Khamenei's office in the city of Qom that opponents to the rule of the Islamic republic supreme leader are 'moharebs' [enemies of God] and that 'Democracy, freedom, and human rights have no place' in Islamic theology."
... Mesbah Yazdi, who is also a member of the Association of Teachers of Qom Theological Center (Jame Modaresin Hoze Elmie Qom), declared that the imposition of "Islamic laws are mandatory following submission'.
... This hardline cleric who is referred to as the "theoretician of Shiite violence" said in another part of his speech: "Another one of the Islamic government's duties is to protect Islamic principles; because an Islamic society must have a proper appearance, and sexual or moral deviants or promoters of any other kind of corruption must be suppressed."
Well, at least the guy can't be clearer.

Found here.

I know that not all Muslims think like this, but it certainly is most surprising (or not) that there is absolutely NO MUSLIM REACTION when these hardline clerics speak about suppressing people because they consider them "sexual or moral deviants". On the other hand, journalists think that by writing that they are "hard-line clerics" they are behaving really nastily with these brutes. But these brutes have power and won't doubt at all to continue with these practices.

Generally, in Western countries there is the consideration that these guys are very far away and that this is not affecting us. But on the contrary, they finance mosques, have diplomatic relations and are not generally (and loudly) critisized as what they really are (it's just their culture, you know...). Imagine if a European were asking for "religious purity" what Ban Ki-Moon et al would say.

Anyway, what is "religious purity"? Falible beings as we are, there is not one soul entirely pure nor entirely bad. Christ said to the ones who wanted to stone the adulteress that those who were without sins, should be the ones that throw the first stones. No one began the stoning and everyone abandoned the place.

So, are they prepared to be judged by the same standards? Oh wait... they always have double-standards for women....
