Homosexuality Punishable by Death?
Aftenposten ^ | August 4, 2008

Posted on 08/04/2008 6:20:57 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Last November the Norwegian Islamic Council asked the European fatwa council what attitude it should have to homosexuals.

The fatwa council, which debates questions of Muslim faith and doctrine, had its annual meeting in Paris three weeks ago, but did not discuss the subject, according to daily newspaper Dagsavisen.

"It's wrong of the Islamic Council to wait for the "verdict" from the fatwa council in such an important case. By not saying 'no' to death penalties for gays, it shows attitudes that conflict with both democratic and humanitarian values," says Sara Azmeh Rasmussen. She is the only openly lesbian Muslim in Norway.

The head of the Norwegian Islamic Council, Senaid Kobilica, is not worried that the fatwa council will decide in favour of the death penalty. "I'm 100 percent certain that the fatwa council will not come out in favour something which conflicts with European law. The council wasn't able to deal with the question of homosexuality this time, but it thinks that subject is quite relevant and wants to look at the matter more," says Kobilica.

The Islamic Council, which represents 60,000 Muslims in Norway, is still not willing to say whether it is for or against the death penalty for homosexuals, until the fatwa council has spoken.

"It's very important to have the European fatwa council with us in difficult matters like this. I am not in favour of the death penalty, but there are Islamic texts that various people understand differently. This is why we need to know the attitude of the authority before we make a decision," says Kobilica.

I think God has made a decision about death and Homosexuality that did not involve any input from anyone....

It is absolutely the Divine will of God that heathen Muslims would be fearful of gays, they would all be gay in a free society because they are impotent without the ability to overpower their women with burkas, veils and threats of murder. What punks...if they were Christians, they would not be threatened by gays, they would be forgiving...Muslims do not understand or accept the concept of forgiving!

From looking at the pictures would it not cool to collect a bunch of non musies and slander islam in front the thugs and see if they attack and when they do self defense cut their heads off and if they don't carry out their threats call them a bunch of wussies who wear panties for hats.

That should get them going!!!!

Second thought hold a good English pork sausage up in front of them and tell them tour going to shove it down their pie holes as you cut their throats....

Norwegian gays should be more tolerant of Islamic belief. If they don’t accept a death sentence for being gay, it might hurt the Muslims’ feelings.

You have posted in support of homosexuals in the military so I figured you might be concerned about the safety and welfare of homosexuals in Europe's newest Muslim dominated nations.

While I disagree with military members practicing homosexual behavior I do not believe people should be murdered for homosexuality (other than pedophiles, of course).

Are you concerned about homosexuals being under a "Fatwa" by Islam, or are you just concerned how those mean old American Christians treat homosexuals?

Perhaps.

SCOTUS likes to rely on foreign law for direction. This might be a good start.

Sara Azmeh Rasmussen. She is the only openly lesbian Muslim in Norway.

David Yeagley once wrote, that the surest sign of your enemy's defeat is when their women join you.

I weep for the downfall of our culture.

Considering what the radicals think about women and gays, I’m always amazed when liberals take a position about them being better than us . . .

“State Dept. friends of mine talked for years about gay orgy’s Arafat would attend and debauch himself. He eventually died of AIDS. “

I assume when I ask you if you have ANY sort of proof to back up that accusation, you’re gonna have real proof, right?

I mean you wouldn’t come in here with an accusation like that, with nothing but some limp “well my close friend, who I can’t identify, who used to work at the State Department told me all about it...” Would you?

I support all of our military. Do you only support the ones who are heterosexual?

Yeah homosexuals under the fatwa is one of my top 3 favorite topics. I have google alerts for that topic and I pay a reference and clipping service to send me all of the articles. Would you like to be on the circulation list?

This is what happens when you make assumptions.
