    article: openly LGBTI people will be welcome at the mosque – while stopping short of condoning same-sex activity. ‘I do not endorse homosexual living, but I do not condemn them as people,’ Dr Hargey said, according to the Cape Times.

    Perhaps gay-friendly should mean more than that they've decided not to stone us.

    How about if we simply call them gay-somewhat-tolerant instead.
