Gay Muslims

Are gay Muslims fabulous?

Please check out the comments in this blog entry of mine, this web site, Proud To Be Queer & Muslim by Daddy or chips? and Rasheed's blog.

I won't claim to know the answer, but I will claim to having very little knowledge on the subject and wanting to know the answer. I will say, though, that's it's fabulous to be proud of who you are.

Hmmm, interesting stuff there. I think your final sentence though is where the opinion seems to differ.

Like you, I can't profess to have much detailed knowledge on the matter, but I can see parallels with Catholicism. Hardcore types would have us punished (hello Polish MP Wojciech Wierzejski, who called for gays to be clubbed, nice); while moderates aren't terribly bothered about it, but can be uncomfortable with public displays.

There is a feeling of inevitability about it all as secular society continues to moves towards inclusion and equality. The major religions, too, belong to society and will, in time, move on to more pressing concerns than gays' desire to waltz down the high street.
