In behalf of the horrific events of Saturday night, I just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that Islam is a religion of peace. It doesn’t matter that the Quran explicitly says that homosexuals should be stoned to death (7:84) - it’s still a religion of peace. And it doesn’t matter that the scriptures say that all gay men should be killed (Sunan 1:152) - Islam doesn’t in anyway condone violence.
It doesn’t matter that every mainstream Imam calls homosexuality a sin "worse the adultery" - it’s not a religion of bigotry.
It doesn’t matter that 61% of Muslims in the UK think gay acts should be made illegal - Islam has nothing against the gay community.
It doesn’t matter that countries with Sharia Law actively persecute the LGBT community - Islam is all about peace and love. Nothing to see here. Everybody move along.
Don’t mind that in Dubai it’s a ten year prison sentence for being gay because of religious laws. Or that simply being gay in Kuwait, Uzbekistan, Algeria, Maldives, Malaysia, Qatar, Somalia and Syria is still illegal.
And whatever you do, don't bring up that because of Islam the LGBT community gets the DEATH PENALTY in countries like Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan, Brunei, Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Sudan, and Yemen - just remember, Islam is still all about tolerance.
Etc. etc. ect . . . just listen to this Islamic scholar speaking in Orlando FL about how killing gays is "the compassionate thing to do." He sounds so polite when he says it - so it can't really be all that bad can it?
