    QUESTION: Is Sharia Law bigoted toward gays and lesbians?
    I don't know about bigoted... but I'm fairly sure in some areas of the middle east it's downright life ending.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Missed that.

    In that case, the answer is yes.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    Re: *** Is Sharia Law (as practiced in Saudi Arabia) bigoted toward gays and lesbians

    Lets take the most volatile: sex.

    As a homosexual, is my lifestyle outlawed in Saudi Arabia ... or accepted.

    The answer is outlawed. Saudi Arabia *EXECUTES* homosexuals. I've seen the videos. They are graphic. Extremely graphic.

    And $25,000,000 of the money for the GZ Mosque is coming from Saudi Arabia.

    Sharia Law defines homosexuality as a deep rooted perversion.

    If that is true (and it is), how does a liberal progressive support the errection of a mosque that will be teaching blatant homophobism?

    That be the truth. Sharia Law is not kind to anyone not agreeing with Sharia Law. Don't like atheists either. Those jerks! Though none of this really matters to any of us seeing as we're not likely to live in a country which adheres to Sharia Law. Way to go democratic republic style of government!

    As a homosexual, do you live in Saudi Arabia. If so, sucks to be you. If not, quit yer bitchin'.

    Sharia law is anti-gay full stop. Saudi or not.

    Actually the version of Sharia Law most popular in Indonesia doesn't even ban gay marriage. It's more open to homosexuality then American laws.

    Your search - "an essence of tolerance and wealth, beauty and relativity." (CNN, Aug 9, 2009, interview ... - did not match any documents.

    Hey, Gay Libertarian, you gonna provide a link or are you just lying?

    EDIT: Here's Obama's official schedule for that date: http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2009...sched_112.html

    Nope, no interview with anyone, much less CNN.

    As does the Catholic Church, though the term they use is "morally disordered". Hell, how many religions are there, really, that are not biased against homosexuality?

    Same way they support the rights of other religious groups they have disagreements with. As a Libertarian, one would expect you to have a better grasp of this principle.
