    1. Nobody is going to be executed in the mosque.

    2. First amendment rights.

    How does a conservative justify doing away with constitutional protections of civil liberties?

    QUESTION: Is Sharia Law bigoted toward gays and lesbians?

    You do know that Christianity, Catholicism, Mormonism, Judaism and probably a bunch of other religions consider homosexuality as sin too, not just Islam? The only way you are going to see a gay wedding or even a gay pride day in a church, synagogue or mosque is if its run by phonies. Sure Christians, Catholics, Mormons and Jews(real/religious Jews, not Jews in name only) or any other religions that views homosexuality as a sin are not out there chopping off the heads of gays or stoning them. But as others pointed out muslims in parts of the word outside the middle east are not chopping the heads off gays or stoning them.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    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?
    If you enjoy reading the Koran, not only you should have a look at the Bible, but you should also read books such as the "penitence book" by Burchard of Worms (1010) :p

    "Did you mate with a women "doggy-style"? If yes: 10 days of penitence, with a water & bread diet"
    "Did you fornicate like the sodomites, introducing your stick inside the behind of a male? If it you are married, 10 years of penitence; if it is with your brother, 15 years"
    "Did you commit sodomy on cows, sheeps, or any other animal? If you don't have a spouse to appease your lust, you will fast during 40 days; if you have a spouse, you will fast 10 years"
    "Did you drink the sperm of your husband, so that he likes you more thanks to your evil behavior? If yes, 7 years of penitence"
    "Did you introduce a living fish inside of your genitals, until he died, then cooked it for your husband so that he likes you more? If yes, you will fast 2 years"


    I also love the "Saxon Laws" decided by Charlemagne in 785:

    "Whoever burnt a church, will be put to death"
    "Whoever refused to feast during the Lent, will be put to death"
    "Whoever, according to a pagan rite, burnt a dead, will be put to death"
    "Any Saxon who has hidden and refused the Christian baptism, will be put to death"


    Now I'm not saying that the Shariah is OK, I think it should be forgotten, just like what the bible says. You can find horrors in every old text, so I find it a bit stupid to try and apply them in 2010, as if society had not totally changed.
