Olbermann on Prop 8

I'll repeat what I've said time and again.

I'm a muslim. My faith teaches me that, to some degree, homosexuality is a sin.

I'm an American. My country teaches me that we're all created equal. That we're all entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

For good or bad, I often put democracy and my country ahead of my faith. It is a struggle every time. Tie goes to democracy, though. Wish more people felt that way.


  1. Serious question:

    Are there any sects of your faith that do condone Homosexuality? Kind of like the Protestants have some churches that embrace the gay lifestyle? Just curious...


  2. Not that I'm aware of, Tim...but it is quite possible that there are enough homosexual muslims and tolerant muslims out there that there could be several gay-friendly mosques or masjids in the US or other western nations.


It is preferred that you sign some sort of name to your posts, rather than remain completely anonymous. Even if it is just an internet nickname/alias, it makes it easier to get to know the people that post here. I hope you all will give it some consideration. Thank you.
