  • Faithful Muslims must disagree with homosexuality, and the word homophobia is just another shaming word.

    Homophobia: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals

    What's the word for someone who simply disagrees with the homosexual point of view? I disagree with the atheist point of view, am I a 'atheistophobic?' I don't feel any of those things in the definition towards homosexuals.

    As a faithful Christian, I know homosexuality is one of many sins, because the Bible says so. I also know Islam is structured quite differently from Christianity. They are required to recite the Quran and agree with what the messenger said to the prophet. There is no questioning anything written in the Quran.

    In other words, Islam is a lot more stricter than Christianity. So, Muslims who are faithful enough to go to mosque, to prayer, to fast at Ramadan and so on, will certainly not agree with homosexuality. The Quran also teaches that the messenger was sent to give Islam as the religion of truth to manifest over all religion.

    The hypocrisy of political correctness combined with the blind openness and inclusion of pluralism are weakening Western civilization fast. The people in most mainstream media and most of our political leaders in North America and Europe are hooked line and sinker for these stand-in for a belief system. Western peoples may have abandoned Christianity, but the need to believe in something is still part of the people. Something will always have to fill that very real human need.

    Unfortunately, political correctness simply seeks to make certain favored groups look good, while making other groups not favored look bad. Muslims are a group favored by political correctness and mainstream media plays up any kind of positive news about Muslims, including spinning and making up news stories.

    Any negative news that makes Muslims look bad is buried as best they can. Any news organizations that dears to say anything bad about Muslims, no matter how true, are usually condemned by the rest of mainstream media. The public is shamed into thinking we are racist if we even dear to look at the situation logically and speak up about it.

    Neighbors of the San Bernadino shooters didn't say anything about suspicious behavior because they didn't want to be seen as racial profiling. People in Western Countries need to educate themselves on what Islam all about. People have to pay attention to the Muslim world view. Because the world view of people in the West is not the same as the Islamic world view. Islam is not tolerant or inclusive religion. And Western people are not going to change the minds of Muslims with hundreds of years of traditions and culture simply by showing them how open and loving we are.

  • I am amazed how so many outside of Islam are trying to speak for Islam and obviously know nothing about their beliefs.

    Islam is homophobic. You are killed for being homosexual in their countries. Don't try and whitewash the truth. If homophobic does not mean killing homosexuals then the term is completely meaningless. Many of the responses are not even answering the question or trying to sidestep it, perhaps "kitman" is being used here. The question is not, "are others as homophobic as Muslims" but "are Muslims homophobic"? Spefically, the teachings of Islam, are they homophobic. Since a Muslim may not be homophobic, but the teachings are clear. Surely, not all are but their described guidepost for life is clearly homophobic and in the worst way.

    Sharia law teaches that homosexuality is one of the worst fornications and is to punished by death. 80% of muslims want Sharia law. The Quran is explicitly against homosexuality. You would be hard pressed to find an imam that was not against homosexuality.

    Yes, Muslims are homophobic people because the Quran is homophobic.

    Yes, Muslims are homophobic people because the Quran is homophobic.

  • Publicly yes, privately we can only guess.

    If your religion is appose to same sex relationships, as Islam most certainly is, and you do not stand up in the numbers it would take to marginalise this idea then you are part of the problem, you are aiding and abetting homophobia and the institutionalisation of homophobia. This is not a minority mind set the figures can easily be googled.

  • Generally Muslims are homophobic

    It is very important to make a distinction between moderate Muslims, devout Muslims, and Muslim extremists. An average Muslim you would see in the United States is a moderate who does not embark on other peoples rights and prefers to live in peace with everyone, even though they are open to indoctrination. This however is a minority of Muslims. Majority of devout Muslims engulfing Europe and residing in the Middle East follow Sharia Law that strongly punishes Gays, as well as women. Muslim extremists have been known to perform public gay executions. So in general the idea of Islam and the Quran are hostile toward the gay community as they consider their existence a sin, similar to many Christian fundamentalists. But as of the current events in the Middle East Muslims are not as afraid to act out on those hateful notions.

  • Homophobia Isn't religious

    While theists tend to be less open minded when it comes to decidedly modern ideals, stating that "Muslims are homophobic" is like stating that "Christians are a!!Holes"- sure, it may be true for the extremists, but associating all followers of a religion with a negative trait is the reason we're having this conversation in the first place.

    I know some will argue that the Quran says something against people who are gay, but over time the strictness of which one follows a book written hundreds years ago lessens considerably, such as Christians with divorce, children out of wedlock, etc, etc.

  • Islam is not homophobic

    Based on what I know, in the quran, same-sex relationships are extremely frowned upon and is in fact, a major sin in Islam. This sin and the people of the past who used to do it were explicitly mentioned and their destruction by some earthquake or something like that served as a warning for Muslims never to engage in these actions.

    I am no expert, but in Islam, there is a logic to this. Islam serves to protect the happiness and livelihood of the individual and the community. It is the stance of Islam that a family can only function properly when the parents are from opposite genders. And this is clearly a sentiment that other people besides Muslims agree with as well.

    With that being said, in Islam, whatever a person chooses to do privately is between him and God, including sexual acts. It is not for the community even a Sharia-based community to judge them. The problem, however becomes when said individuals choose to go public. I think in Islam, this now becomes a crime and the individuals have to be prosecuted accordingly. However, in many Muslim countries, there seems to be a wrong interpretation of punishment. Punishing gays seems to have become a means to vent anger. I am pretty sure that in Islam, there is no such thing as killing or beheading gays. But I do think there is a law that they have to be jailed for some time.

    I have done some reading and in countries where Sharia law is not applied like in US and UK, Muslims have to obey the laws there. As such, it is perfectly ok for them to mix and socialise with homosexuals. So, I would say that Islam does not teach muslims to be homophobic, even practising Muslims. When they are the minority, it is not for them to choose who to like or who to hate.

    But if you are talking about MAJORITY of Muslims, then yes I would say that they are sadly homophobic because of the cultural stigma which has been attached to it. Not because of the teachings of Islam itself. For Muslims who have been living in Western countries, they are tolerant and open because they are used to it. It is a cultural issue, not an issue with the religion of Islam.

    And I am pretty sure that in some cultures involving Christianity or some other religions, this is also the case.

  • Muslims are no more homophobic than other people.

    There are many religions and cultures that are not very open to non-traditional relationships. Muslims as a group are no more homophobic than other groups. Within the Muslim religion, similar to the Catholics, each person decides for themselves how accepting they are of non-traditional relationships. Muslims cannot be lumped as a whole into the homophobic beliefs of a few.

  • I do not believe ALL Muslims are homophobic people.

    I don't believe it's fair to make sweeping generalizations about a group of people, Muslim, Christian, black, white, etc. It would be akin to saying that all white, Christians are members of the KKK, and are therefore, racist. When one group of people are "pigeon-holed" into a segment, it demeans the rest of the group entirely.

  • They are not homophobic.

    Yes, homosexuality is against the religion of Islam. However, this does give them permission to hate against gay people and treat them as second-class. True Muslims do not hate other people because of their lifestyle choices. They can still be friends and interact with gay people even if they do not agree with homosexuality.

  • Muslims are not homophobic people

    Most people categorise muslims as the 'bad' people of the community, when they are following a peaceful religion, for a better ending. Muslims are not necessarily homophobes, they do respect others' choices and decisions, it wont harm them, they can have homosexual friends, but they wouldn't be one, because its against the religion. They can't really do anything about someone else's choice in life, it kind of doesn't have an impact on a regular muslim's life. Also, Islam is not the only religion that prevents same sex relationships, but how come it's the most religion that is bashed.

  • Most of you going to start war with musilin
