The Religion Of Peace And Homosexuality

Islam is very specific about punishment of homosexuals. Imams also lend a particular flavor to Islamic practices regarding homosexuality.

Here are a few verses from the Quran:

Kill Them With Stones
Quran (7:80-84) - "...For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.... And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)" - An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the "rain of stones" on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people's destruction. (Inexplicably, the story is also repeated in suras 15:74, 27:58 and 29:40).
Special Destruction For Homosexuals
Quran (7:81) - "Will ye commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you?" This verse is part of the previous text and it establishes that homosexuality as different from (and much worse than) adultery or other sexual sin. According to the Arabic grammar, homosexuality is called the worst sin, while references elsewhere describe other forms of non-marital sex as being "among great sins."
Allah Forgives Homosexuals If They Repent
Quran (4:16) - "If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone" This is the Yusuf Ali translation. The original Arabic does not use the word "men" and simply says "two from among you." Yusuf Ali may have added the word "men" because the verse seems to refer to a different set than referred to in the prior verse (explicitly denoted as "your women"). In other words, since 4:15 refers to "your women", 4:16 is presumably written to and refers to men.

Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli of Iran said, in April of 2012, that homosexuals are inferior to dogs and pigs, since these animals (presumably) do not engage in such acts.

In November of 2012, a cleric on British television stated, "What should be done to those who practice homosexuality? Torture them; punish them; beat them and give them mental torture."


My take on all this is fairly simple. Homosexuality is a sin, much like other sins, except that it is a sexual sin. Sins of the flesh (adultery, fornication, homosexuality) are dealt with more severely in scripture as these sins involve the body, which is made in the image of God. Under the New Testament, which is a covenant of Grace, there is only one sin that God will not forgive, that is blaspheming the Holy Spirit (attributing the works of God to the devil). No where in the New testament will you find admonitions to kill, maim or hurt homosexuals.

Fuck the moslems. ;-)

PS - Meanwhile, since it is against their religion to have sex with someone other than their wife, they resort to raping young boys and think that's better. Can a person be more fucked up? You can look this up easily.

Kid - actually their practice is to get an imam to issue a fatwa legalizing rape for a "special event" - like an invasion. Some Saudi imam did this allowing the rape of Syrian woman. Added benefit... this does wonders for recruitment.

Yeah, there's a real disconnect with the left's admiration for Muslims, their fear of saying Jihad, and their support for homosexuals. Chalk that all up to just another aspect of the disease of progressivism.
