For those of you who can’t watch videos, Piers asks, “Wouldn’t it be great for the President of Iran to say, you know something, everyone is entitled to be the sexuality they were born to be?” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:
I’m sorry. Let me ask you this. Do you believe that anyone is giving birth through homosexuality? Homosexuality ceases procreation. Who has said that if you like or believe in doing something ugly, and others do not accept your behavior, that they’re denying your freedom?
And this is what he says he would do if one of his kids turned out to be gay:
Proper education must be given … the education system must be revamped. The political system must be revamped. And these must be also reformed, revamped along the way. But if you, if a group recognizes an ugly behavior or ugly deed as legitimate, you must not expect other countries or other groups to give it the same recognition.
