the Christian Conservative's favorite verse

Lev 18:22-23 "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination." Lev 20:13 "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death."

seems the Christian Bible agrees with Muslim writings.

Re: CORBIN -- remember Leviticus?

did you forget the "shall be put to death" part?

Corbin, what are you talking about?

When I have or my son ever said we support Islamic extremists?

And pointing out that most Muslims are NOT Islamic extremists, is not supporting Islamic extremists.

Right now there are many politicians on the right with direct connection to Islamic extremists, including many who are business partners with them and help them to build up fortunes and put them in positions of power.  

Defending religious freedom and fighting against intolerance is not the same as supporting dangerous extremists of any faith. I, unlike you am not siding with a group that openly support extremists all over the world.  The GOP has lots of money going into extremists groups. Most of them openly Christian, some of them Muslim even.

Then why do you support Islamic extremists?   They do more that donate money....they kills gays?

Islamic Shari'ah law is extracted from both the Qur'an and hadiths. Islamic jurisprudence are expansion of the laws contained within them by Islamic jurists. Therefore, they are seen as the laws of Allah. You need only look to the rulings under Shari'ah to see the accepted mainstream interpretation of Islam and its commandments to its followers. Homosexuality under this law, is not only a sin, but a punishable crime against God.

In the case of homosexuality, how it is dealt with differs between the four mainline schools of Sunni jurisprudence today, but what they all agree upon is that homosexuality is worthy of a severe penalty.

In the Hanafi school of thought, the homosexual is first punished through harsh beating, and if he/she repeats the act, the death penalty is to be applied.

As for the Shafi`i school of thought, the homosexual receives the same punishment as adultery (if he/she is married) or fornication (if not married). This means, that if the homosexual is married, he/she is stoned to death, while if single, he/she is whipped 100 times. Hence, the Shafi`i compares the punishment applied in the case of homosexuality with that of adultery and fornication.

The Hanafi differentiates between the two acts because in homosexuality, anal sex [something that is prohibited, regardless of orientation] may also be involved, while in adultery [and fornication], the penis/vagina (which are reproductive parts) are involved.

Some scholars, based on the Qur'an and various ahadith, hold the opinion that the homosexual should be thrown from a high building or stoned to death[1] as a punishment for their 'crime', but other scholars maintain that they should be imprisoned until death. [2]

Another view is that between two males, the active partner is to be lashed a hundred times if he is unmarried, and killed if he is married; whereas the passive partner is to be killed regardless of his marital status.[3]

I have never in my life been to a Chick-fil-A.  I see no reason to begin at this late date in my life.
