Iraqi police 'killed 14-year-old boy for being homosexual'

Independent reported Human rights groups have condemned the "barbaric" murder of a 14-year-old boy, who, according to witnesses, was shot on his doorstep by Iraqi police for the apparent crime of being gay....

I don't support this, of course, but don't the same liberals who are upset at this, always telling us we are supposed to be tolerant of other cultures?
Grand Ayatollah Sistani recently issued a fatwa on his website calling for the execution of gays in the "worst, most severe way".
Is a gunshot not the "worst, most severe way"?
The powerful Badr militia acts as the military wing of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), which counts Ayatollah Sistani as its spiritual leader. Another fatwa from the late and much revered Ayatollah Abul Qassim Khoei allows followers to kill gays "with a sword, or burn him alive, or tie his hands and feet and hurl him down from a high place".
But that does not include gunshot.
