Antony Hegarty Responds to Violence Against Homosexuals in Iraq
Published Sep 14, 2009Taking a break from brief blog posts about Whitney Houston and potential new tracks, Antony Hegarty of Antony and the Johnsons has taken some time to reflect on a messy situation in Iraq. According to this highly disturbing report from the Guardian, Iraqi gangs have been tracking down homosexuals and submitting them to torture and murder.
Hagerty took to the Internet to express his disgust with the events. After quoting the worst news in the article (seriously, read with caution), Hegarty says the following:
ALLAH TREASURES HIS GAY AND TRANSGENDERED CHILDREN, HIS PRECIOUS HOMOSEXUAL CHILDREN.
JESUS ADORES HIS GAY CHILDREN AND RESERVES A SACRED PLACE FOR THEM IN THE FOLDS OF HIS CLOTHES.
IT IS A SIN TO HURT A GAY OR TRANSGENDERED PERSON. YOU HURT ALLAH WHEN YOU HURT ONE OF THESE MEN OR WOMEN, BOYS OR GIRLS.
Make a tshirt. Tell your friends.
love from Antony, crying.
