"We Don't Have Gays In Iran" - Ahmadinejad

From the New York Times:
In response to a question about homosexuality, Mr. Ahmadinejad was
initially evasive, instead talking about the death penalty, which, he pointed
out, exists in the United States: “People who violate the laws by using guns,
creating insecurity selling guns, distributing guns at a high level are
sentenced to execution in Iran. Very few of these punishments are carried out in
the public eye.”
Pressed by Dean Coatsworth on the original question about
homosexuality, Mr. Ahmadinejad said: “In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in
your country. We don’t have that in our country.”
The audience booed and
hissed loudly.
“In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon,” Mr. Ahmadinejad
continued, undeterred. “I do not know who has told you that we have it.

Nice guest. When they find Iranian gays they execute them, so of course, they don't have this phenomenon in Iran.
