Liberalism, Islam & Homosexuality – Are They Compatible?

Untitled Project

When looking at the main stream media, one would think that Liberalism, Islam and Homosexuality are very compatible.  Liberalism promotes and backs both of these belief systems.  This seemed very interesting to me, so I decided to to take a look at some things.

I began by looking up what Sharia Law says about the practice of homosexuality.  Ultimately, Islam teaches that Muslims are to take over the entire world and implement Sharia Law as the law of the land.  Sharia Law is based on the teachings found in the  religion of Islam.  Here is what Sharia Law says about sex and homosexuality:

The penalty for zina   [illicit sex]

Sharia law states that if either an unmarried man or an unmarried woman has pre-marital sex, the punishment should be 100 lashes.  Quran 24:2  http://www.usc.edu/org/cmje/religious-texts/quran/verses/024-qmt.php#024.002  There are some requirements that need to be met before this punishment can happen. For example, the punishment cannot happen unless the person confesses, or unless four eyewitnesses each saw, at the same time, the man and the woman in the action of illicit sex. Those who accuse someone of illicit sex but fail to produce four eyewitnesses are guilty of false accusation and their punishment is 80 lashes.  Maliki school of sharia considers pregnancy in an unmarried woman as sufficient evidence that she committed the hudud crime of zina. The Hadiths consider homosexuality as zina:

Book 38, Number 4447:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.

[Lot’s people were the people of the infamous cities of Sodom & Gomorra. They were known for their sin of homosexuality.]

Book 38, Number 4448:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.

Seeing the media bringing these belief systems together and making them seem compatible, is very confusing and deceptive.  God tells us that He is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), but that it is satan who is the father of lies and a deceiver (John 8:44).  Satan’s ultimate goal is to deceive us into living in sin and keep us separated from the one true God who loves us.  (John 10:7-10).  It does not make sense for someone to say that they are for both of these belief systems when one teaches to kill the other.

God wants us to know the truth and salvation through His Son Jesus Christ!  No matter what sin and rebellion against God we have in our lives, if we confess Jesus as, not only Savior, but Lord and Savior, we can have forgiveness of sins and be cleansed!  (Romans 10:9)  God desires that we know the truth and be set free from the bondage of sin in our lives and to live the life he intended for each one of us!  (John 8:31-32)  God loves us and has a great plan and purpose for us when we allow Him to be the Lord of our lives!  Praise be to God!
