Imam Who Preached in Orlando Two Months Ago Advocates Death For Gays

The terror attack in Orlando early Sunday morning at LGBT night club Pulse was no coincidence or random target. 

Two months ago, Imam Farrokh Sekaleshfar preached at a local central Florida mosque. Prior to his arrival during another event, Sekaleshfar advocated death for gays, saying it is the "sentence" they deserve for their lifestyle and that it's nothing to be embarrassed about.

"Look, death is the sentence. We know. There's nothing to be embarrassed about this. Death is the sentence," Sekaleshfar said. "Out of compassion, lets get rid of them now." 

An ICM poll from April shows nearly half of British Muslims believe homosexuality should be illegal.
