Afiq M Noor, the former ASSistant Manager for Sisters In Islam (SIS) and a lawyer who once represented convicted sodomist Anwar Ibrahim claims that nowhere does Islam condemn LGBT.
He said in those days there was no consensual sodomy but only acts of aggression and rape.
He said that in Surah Al-A’raf verse 80 God specifically mentioned sodomists and not homosexuals.
I now know that straight people bugger male bungholes just to express anger and to humiliate the person because he can.
Of course he knows Arabic better than any of the scholars that have gone through the Quran for 1500 years.
This is what I call “selective quoting” of the Quran. By selecting only Verse 80 of Al-A’raf he deduced that Islam allows LGBT.
Of course if he was not being selective, he would have seen the next verse which is 81 where Allah said:
“Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.”
Desire doesn’t sound like rape or aggression with the intention to humiliate at all. It just says that the person loves to be in deep shit (pun intended).
Let us take another example from Ash-Shura verses 165 and 166:
“Do you approach males among the worlds” (165).
“And leave what your Lord has created for you as mates? But you are a people transgressing.”(166)
So these males who rape other males rape only males? But they do so with desire? And leave women folks? Does that not sound gay to you?
And in An-Naml verse 55, Allah said:
“Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women? Rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly.”
So Allah talked about men who desire other men instead of women. And these are rapists who are out to shame other men? If they so desire, why don’t they desire to sodomise women instead?
Perhaps he is trying to find a way for people to go up his Hershey Highway, or was borne through one.
