Iran: Morocco 'gay association' irks hardliners

Tehran, 31 July (AKI) – An Iranian news agency linked to the country's hardline Islamist establishment has assailed Morocco for what it says is the North African state's "promotion of homosexuality and paedophilia".

In an editorial, Taghrib criticised what it said was the Moroccan government's failure to prevent a group of homosexuals from forming an association.

"In Morocco, an Islami country, homsexuality has become an accepted reality to such an extent that it risks becoming a secular state without faith like Western nations".

"Morocco risks becoming a new Sodom”, the Taghrib editorial said.

According to the Bible and the Koran, Sodom, was along with another city, Gomorrah, destroyed by God because of the immoral behaviour of its inhabitants.
