Two Muslim views – gays ok, sex slavery ok

Muslim views differ. One says “Don’t harm gays”. The other says it’s ok to have a sex slave”. Both are Muslim.

At one end of the spectrum, Grand Mufti Shawki Allam, a leading religious leader in Egypt, has spoken up against violence against gay people.

According to a report in Mamba Online:

“Each person is equally inviolable,”  Allam said. “Even if we view homosexuality as a religious sin, that does not give anyone the freedom to injure another person in any way.”

“Yes, it is religiously not allowed and not accepted practice in Islam. But that does not give anyone the right to hurt homosexuals or to take the law into their own hands,” Allam said in an interview with the German publication Süddeutsche Zeitung.

He continued: “…even if we view homosexuality as a religious sin, that does not give anyone the freedom to injure another person in any way. Each person is equally inviolable. What happened in Orlando is totally unacceptable.”

Allam’s tolerance is not universal.

At a completely different end of the spectrum Ali Hammuda, a “radical” Muslim cleric in Wales, reportedly tells his followers that it’s ok to have sex slaves.

Hammuda is an Imam at the Al-Manar mosque in Cardiff. He has been at this post since Nasser Muthana and Reyyad Khan, then 20, and teenager Aseel Muthana left for Syria in 2014.

Now the preacher has been secretly filmed telling a group of young Muslims it is acceptable to keep sex slaves and that the “end of days” is near.
