Homosexuals should be punished....

Excerpts from an interview with Dr. Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi from Al-Jazeera TV on June 5, 2006.
Interviewer: How should a homosexual or a lesbian be punished? We mentioned the story of the people of Sodom and how Allah punished them, but how should someone who commits this abomination be punished today?

Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: The same punishment as any sexual pervert - the same as the fornicator.

[...]

The schools of thought disagree about the punishment. Some say they should be punished like fornicators, and then we distinguish between married and unmarried men, and between married and unmarried women. Some say both should be punished the same way. Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them, and so on. There is disagreement.
This is a huge philosophical problem for Islam - do you drop homosexuals from a high place, or do you burn them?

the same as the fornicator.

I guess after they blow themselves up, they don't care that the "martyrs" will be fornicating with all them virgins.

i don't know what motivates your conservatism or your hatred for muslims. however, you should spend some time reading what many other blogging tories and their readers write about homosexuals. as a gay man in canada, you've got bigger problems than muslim intolerance of homosexuality in the middle east.

Davidson’s comment typifies a huge chunk of lefty responses to criticism of Islam. I note first his question about what “motivates” your, assumedly pathological, conservatism and hatred of Muslims. Motivation is where liberals live, in the murky world of feeling and of intention. Theirs are good and caring and kind and open and and….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…oh, sorry. So if you’re a conservative or if, as a homo, you’re just a bit uneasy about the world’s most homophobic religion, bar none, then they start to be concerned about your mental health. So right away, you know that, rather than being engaged, you’re being diagnosed…without a license or patient consent.

As for “hating Muslims”, which is separable but not separate from hating Islam, does Davidson not know the Islamic doctrine on queers? And does s/he not know that Islam is essentially, essentially, a theocracy? Not opportunistically, like Christianity, but essentially. Which means the political dominance of Islam is intrinsic to the revelation.

And with the recent arrest of the 17 young men from “a broad stratum of society”, (which is Canadian-speak for “Muslim”), does s/he (wouldn't wanna presume) not get a sense that the influence of Muslims in Canada, either political or violent, is growing, and that their attitude toward him/her and other sexual deviants makes whatever other worries s/he thinks Fred should have fade away into the land of icing on the cake?

I have shown on my blog that the MEMRI translation is faulty and misleading. You are invited to take a look, even if that is unlikely to change your malignant attitude towards Islam.
