    express your views on the scenario of Islam & homosexuals

    Why they are killed ? or hanged ? or stoned ?

    What is such a sin ..that a man loving a man is killed ?


    I know the past of Christianity & Homosexuality ...(But there have been no death for Christians in any legal law..or any stoning or such in any judicial Law of any country)

    & when i am saying bible i just mean the Gospels as its the only book book of a true christian ...Book of romans ,etc are excluded these-days ...as they are more of hatred & not the work or word of christ.
    Old testament is dissolved these-days for its hate speeches .including homophobia..

    Christ in Matthew has told people to let them(LGBTE) be for some are born this way & they have their share in the kingdom of heaven !

    Im not preaching anything but just trying to understand what a Gay Muslim feels from inside ...

    [& i'm not against any community(Islam)]

    Christians all over the world have opposed to the old testament laws & Protestant reformation has accepted the LGBTE very normally ..Not talking of the Orthodox or Catholic church in any sense

    All the major Pride parades are from Christian dominated countries(US ,UK ,SPAIN,GERMANY,MEXICO ,Brazil,etc)

    Many Christians have opposed us but thats a normal thing now...almost everyone absorbs us even in the churches with compassion & love & yes, respect ..
    Its normal to have homosexual priests & preachers now & in Asia there are transsexual preachers too

    AND almost all Christian countries have taken off the bans on gays they put past
    Whereas Turkey is the only Muslim country to allow it
    there have been oppositions but its the walk of life,ups & downs ..but its clearing up ...why isn't any Muslim at large not standing for the rights of humanity to love someone in the Arab world ?

    Just the other day, I was discussing Oman with someone, who, like me, had been there while serving. It is well known the Sultan of Oman is gay. Yet, it never appears to have affected his ability to lead or his popularity. Homosexuality is still illegal in Oman, though cases only get to court if "public scandal" is involved (whatever that means). There is certainly a lot of political hypocrisy in the Islamic world regarding homosexuality. It seems that deeply closeted homosexuality is just about tolerated (It's rather like the Republican Party in that respect).

    My straight 27 yr old workout partner is Muslim, and originally from Ivory Coast.

    Through him I've met quite a few other Muslims here in Atlanta and so far I've encountered no overt homophobia. Granted, most of the hetero Muslims I know are in the music industry so perhaps they could be more progressive.

    When my workout partner's mother was visiting from Ivory Coast, she wanted to meet me. I had some reservations about the encounter....as she knew I was gay and that her son and I are very close friends.

    Within a few minutes of meeting and as her son brought up my gayness(because he's a natural instigator), she told me her view:

    "Love is universal. None of us have the right to judge what is good for another." she told us.

    Was that in accord with her Muslim faith? I don't know....but it was her individual understanding of 'Truth'.

    OTOH, I once had a very good Iranian friend who dropped our friendship immediately when he found out I was gay. But was Islam the source of his homophobia-------or was it just straight boy insecurities?

    The ugly Sultans there are ugly ---- right from their face to their heart..that's my opinion
    What can he do if his inner-self is hating gays ,"BEING A GAY HIMSELF" ?
