An Iranian regime cleric in the holy city of Qom on Tuesday issued a homophobic rant against people vaccinated for COVID-19, claiming that they become gay after receiving the vaccine. Ayatollah Abbas Tabrizian wrote on his Telegram social media platform: “Don’t go near those who have had the COVID vaccine. They have become homosexuals.” The radical Islamist has nearly 210,000 followers on his Telegram account. Tabrizian has a history of anti-Western medicine views. Last year, a video showed him burning Harrison’s Manual of Medicine, in which he argued that “Islamic medicine” has made such books “irrelevant,” according to an article on the US government Radio Farda website. Sheina Vojoudi, an Iranian dissident who fled the Islamic Republic of Iran due to repression, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that, “like other clerics in the regime, also Tabrizian relates all the shortages to sexuality. The clerics in Iran are suffering from lack of knowledge and humanity.
