Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday compared countries that accept homosexual behavior to countries that “wish to legitimize stealing.”

Appearing on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," Ahmadinejad was asked by host Piers Morgan whether he might willing to acknowledge that “everyone is entitled to be whatever sexuality they are born to be.”

Speaking through a translator, Ahmadinejad responded by asking Morgan, “Do you really believe that someone is born homosexual?” When Morgan answered that he “absolutely” believes that some people are born gay, Ahmadinejad pressed him further.

"I'm sorry. Let me ask you this. Do you believe that anyone is giving birth through homosexuality? Homosexuality ceases procreation,” countered the Iranian leader. “Who has said that if you like or believe in doing something ugly, and others do not accept your behavior, that they're denying your freedom? Who says that? Perhaps in a country they wish to legitimize stealing."

Ahmadinejad, who is expected to address the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, also was asked how he would react if one of his two sons or daughter turned out to be gay.

"Proper education must be given,” he said in the interview that was taped over the weekend. “The education system must be revamped. The political system must be revamped. And these must be also reformed and revamped along the way. But if you — if a group recognizes an ugly behavior or ugly deed as legitimate — you must not expect other countries or other groups to give it the same recognition."
