Iran: AIDS rate doubles in the holy city of Qom
Adnkronos International ^ | January 11, 2008 | AKI

Tehran, 11 Jan. (AKI) - In the past year, the incidence of AIDS has doubled in the holy Shia city of Qom, second only to the Iraqi city of Najaf in religious significance.

"The great share of the newly infected have contracted the HIV virus, not through using infected syringes, but through unprotected sexual relations," said Amir, Akbari, director of the city's health centre.

In the past year the number of those affected by AIDS in Qom has risen from 177 to 324.

Forty per cent of those infected are students from the theological colleges in Qom. In Iran, according to official estimates, there are more than 16,000 infected with AIDS in the country, while non-government organisations put the total number above 100,000.

On the one hand, history indicates that Muslims have always been intolerant of homosexuals, or more accurately, those on the receiving end.

On the other hand, history indicates that there has always been a lot of homosexual activity in Muslim countries.

What’s a young theology student to do, when richer, older, more powerful men are hogging all the women?

Is there a rule concerning just how many holy cities one religion can have?

The Ayatollah Khomeini Holy City Mosque and Massage Parlor is apparently thriving.

A theological student in Qom,
Wanted to make a madrassa his home,
The cleric said “O.K., but you’ll have to be gay, for I need to someone to polish my dome.”

Many porn sites on the net are apparently accessed from Qom too! *

I'm not surprised, it is a religion that is obsessed with "huris" i.e. "virgins" in this life and after life! Many of the clerics and their socalled students are sexually frustrated and are perverts. Heard of Seegheh?

Interesting link, odds.

The Muslim clerics in Iran since Arab-Islam invasion of Iran starting in the 7th century have always been extremely influential and actively tried to enforce and embed the Islamic 7th century laws in Iran, hence, indoctrinated the mass population over the ensuing centuries in Iran. When the late Shah and his father “Reza Shah” tried to diminish the cleric influence in Iran, the clerics resented the intervention. To this date, most, if not all, the ruling clerics despise the Pahlavi Dynasty, mainly because the Pahlavis tried to reduce the power of the clerics. With the rise of Mullahs to power in 1979, many if not all backward and 7th century Islamic laws have been imposed in Iran again and in full force. The idea or practice of polygamy or “Seegheh” does not exist in traditional Iranian/Persian culture. It is an Islam-Arab practice.
