Half of British Muslims want gay sex to be made illegal, according to a new poll.
The survey for Channel 4 found there was a “chasm” between views among the British Muslim community and mainstream opinion in this country.
It found 52 per cent of Muslims said homosexuality should not be legal in Britain.
Of more than 1,000 British Muslims polled by ICM, 39 per cent agreed “wives should always obey their husbands”, and 31 per cent said it was acceptable for a man to have more than one wife.
I’m pretty sure that all flavours of Islam believe the following three things:
1) Homosexuality should be illegal.
2) Wives should obey their husbands.
3) A man may have more than one wife.
The finding is thus that people who believe in a religion believe in a religion.
As to what we do about it we ignore them. Just as we do the Jews about not mixing meat and dairy, the Jehovah’s Witnesses about not having a blood transfusion and so on.
