Typical fluff June 28, 2006Posted by Rasheed Eldin in Media, Queer Muslims.
For their week of misplaced pride, the Toronto Star included a focus on “gay Muslims”, done in a way that is typical of so many articles out there on the subject, popping up in the press from time to time.
Farzana, a lesbian social worker, stated:
“Certainly, among more traditional and fundamental Muslims, we are being sinful just by existing.”
No, dear, it is not your existence that is sinful. It is your [plural – oh, English is weak sometimes] insistence on doing things your Lord has prohibited, and your choice to live according to the dictates of your desires rather than submit to awe of Him and humility before him.
