Sistani fuels Iraqi homophobe murderers?

What a chilling story. Iraqi police murder a 14 year old boy in cold blood for being gay? Apparently this is not an isolated event. And this part of the story really sends a chill up my spine:

Campaign groups have warned of a surge in homophobic killings by state security services and religious militias following an anti-gay and anti-lesbian fatwa issued by Iraq's most prominent Shia leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani.
No wonder Salam Pax's blog has gone silent, and he appears to be touring the west.

What have we done to Iraq?
