NY1 'The Call' Viewer Calls For Gays To Be Beheaded

A Staten Island resident stunned the host of New York 1 program "The Call" by suggesting that gays should be beheaded in accordance with Sharia law.

Identifying himself as Chris from Willowbrook, N.Y., the caller noted, "I'm Muslim and I believe 110 percent in Sharia law. Sharia law needs to be implemented in the United States because that's the only way this deviant lifestyle will be corrected."

The discussion got increasingly heated after Chris added, "You know what happens in Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries to the gay people, correct? They are beheaded, and I'm going to fight as hard as I can with all of my brothers and sisters to make Sharia law in the United States. This is a sin!"

The news coincides with reports that the American Freedom Defense Initiative is hoping to install anti-Muslim posters, this time at Metro-North commuter railway stations.

The new campaign will reportedly feature the tagline "This is Islamic apartheid" above disturbing images, including one with two blindfolded men about to be hanged with nooses.
