Iranian Cleric Abbas Tabrizian: Covid Vaccine Makes You Gay

There’s anti-vaxxers, and then there’s Iranian cleric Ayatollah Abbas Tabrizian.

Abbas TabrizianAn 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.

I guess this means he wants to hang every Iranian who had the vaccine.

Abbas TabrizianThis is the same guy who became the, ehh, butt of jokes in Iran for prescribing as a cure for coronavirus ““Before sleeping, put a cotton ball dipped in violet oil to the anus.”

That closet he’s likely in seems mighty claustrophobic.

Meanwhile, I’ve had my two shots of the vaccine and I feel fabulous!

Update: We are not immune from this stupidity either.
