Dr Mahathir says no to gay marriages in Malaysia

Dr Mahathir Mohamad, while speaking at the Cambridge Union on June 16 (Sunday), reiterated his stance on marriage and noted that Malaysia would not recognise same-sex marriage.

The Malaysian prime minister touched on gay marriage during his speech at the debating society of Cambridge University and described the idea to be “a regressive way of thinking.”

He repeated that Malaysia would not recognise same-sex marriages.

It was in October of last year, during a public lecture in Bangkok, when Dr Mahathir expressed his views on the LGBT (lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders) community. He noted that LGBT is a “Western value” that will not be accepted in Malaysia.

“At this moment, we do not accept LGBT but if they (the West) want to accept, that is their business. Don’t force it on us,” said the prime minister.


It was also at this event he showed not only he is a homophobe, but an anti-Semite. When someone hates one group, there are usually other groups which are their targets as well! Keep it classy, Cambridge!
