Can cultural relativists explain if we should embrace the part of Pakistani culture that executes Gay people?

At a Toronto District School Board conference last year, Uzma Shakir, the Sharia Law-loving City of Toronto "Diversity" Manager, gave a sanctimonious speech about how paternalistic and condescending Canadians are towards people like her by assuming they come from inferior cultures.

She went on to blather about how Pakistani culture is every bit as advanced and cosmopolitan as ours and how we should be embracing it more here.

Leaving aside the obvious, unanswered question about why, if Pakistan is so great, was she and her husband so willing to abandon it, was she also referring to the "superior" Pakistani practice of executing Gay people for being Gay?

Just askin'...
