Imam offers advice on how to avoid having gay children

This Imam, who once referred to homosexuality as "a disease that worries the world community," has come up with a way to stop it.

Rahmatulloh Saifutdinov, the chief imam of Mirzo Yusuf Mosque in Tashkent, says homosexuality will end once couples stop fantasizing about other people during sex.

RFE/RL reports that he shared this during a sermon on marriage and family values delivered on March 2, 2018.

How to stop homosexuality

After Friday prayers, Saifutdinov suggested that having this kind of thoughts during sex could lead to the birth of a homosexual child.

He explained, “For example, women are fantasizing about handsome Turkish soap opera actors. There are many such posts on social media by some married women. It’s like having three people taking part in the [sexual] intercourse.”

According to the cleric, this kind of sexual activity could result in the lady potentially becoming pregnant with a homosexual baby boy.

To the men, the Imam warned, “Men, too, are not allowed to imagine another beautiful woman when they are having sexual intercourse with their wives, because this may lead to the birth of a lesbian child.”

On controversial Imam

The Imam’s comments come as no surprise as he is known for making controversial statements that align with the predominantly Muslim country’s anti-gay and LGBTI views.

In 2017, he warned men not to study and practice obstetrics because “being Muslim is not compatible with being a male obstetrician.”

“It’s an embarrassment [to allow male obstetricians]. We should stop it,” the imam said.

When reached for comments on the latest teaching on homosexuality, the imam’s assistant had “no further comments.”
