This outlook is, definitely, one of the factors which will lead to the fall of western civilization.”“Supreme Leader Meets with Outstanding Women,” The Office of the Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Khamenei, May 22, 2013, http://www.leader.ir/langs/en/?p=contentShow&id=10676.

“One wonders if the west has given up on Christianity. We supposed that the west's history and roots were in Christianity and the latter objects to homosexuality. The Torah also says sodomy is punished by God. We shouldn't give the impression that Muslims are alone on this.”Madeleine Bunting, “Friendly Fire: Madeleine Bunting Meets Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi in Qatar,” Guardian (London), October 29, 2005, http://www.theguardian.com/world/2005/oct/29/religion.uk1.

“There was a demonstration against me in London because I spoke out against homosexuality. People seem to have forgotten that it wasn't me who came up with this mindset.

“We must be aware that in regulating the sexual drive Islam has prohibited not only illicit sexual relations and all what leads to them, but also the sexual deviation known as homosexuality. This perverted act is a reversal of the natural order, a corruption of man's sexuality, and a crime against the rights of females. (The same applies equally to the case of lesbianism.)”“The Qaradawi Fatwas,” Middle East Quarterly, 2004, http://www.meforum.org/646/the-qaradawi-fatwas.

“Muslim jurists have held differing opinions concerning the punishment for this abominable practice. Should it be the same as the punishment for fornication, or should both the active and passive participants be put to death? While such punishments may seem cruel, they have been suggested to maintain the purity of the Islamic society and to keep it clean of perverted elements.”“The Qaradawi Fatwas,” Middle East Quarterly, 2004, http://www.meforum.org/646/the-qaradawi-fatwas.

In Their Own Words:

If you remove any nonwhite group from American history, the country still exists. It would probably be better. If America continues its present course and whites become a minority, ‘America’ becomes a name on a map.
