Labour MP backs stoning gays

[Welcome to readers of Little Green Footballs – enjoy a look around]

, and Muslim, MP Ashraf Choudary replied in response to “”Are you saying the Koran is wrong to recommend that gays in certain circumstances be stoned to death?”

“No, no. Certainly what the Koran says is correct.”

He went on to say that it is only acceptable in *some* societies, but not New Zealand.

I look forward to Rainbow Labour stating an opinion on whether they agree it is okay to stone gays to death, as long as it isn’t in New Zealand.

Oh by the way adulterers are also okay for stoning overseas, so I’d better behave on my next overseas trip, or purchase some good body armour!

UPDATE: Craig at NZ Pundit points out that the only way voters can prevent Ashraf Choudhary’s views from being in Parliament, is to not give their party vote to Labour as he is a List MP.

UPDATE II: Helen Clark has clarified that it is not the policy of the Labour Party to support capital punishment, floggingor stoning. Geez, thanks for that – I thought it was now official policy. She almost ignores the issue of having an MP who says such things are correct if done overseas, merely saying she will clarify his comments. Could you imagine what all the PC brigade would say if a fundamentalist christian right wing MP has said that stoning gays to death is acceptable? They would be forced out of Parliament probably. Usual double standards.
