Surprise! Scotland's imams oppose gay marriage
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-sc...s-17753462

Quote:Muslim leaders from Scotland's biggest city have voiced their opposition to gay marriage.The Scottish government has been consulting on whether to bring in a law which would allow churches to hold same-sex wedding ceremonies.
The Council of Glasgow Imams said such a legal move would be an "attack" on their faith and fundamental beliefs.

I've got this picture in my mind of a red-bearded guy in sunglasses, a turban and a kilt...

I'm just gob-smacked. Never saw that coming. Cool

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Surprise! Scotland's imams oppose gay marriage
I know modern immigration allows anyone to go anywhere, but why would a muslim from the hot and dry middle-east go to cold and wet Scotland? Is it because it's the one other country where men wear girl's clothing too?

Just imagine what would happen if imams formed an unholy alliance with Xtian pastors against gay marriage...!


Thank God they are mortal enemies! Big Grin

You mix up Allah with the Xtian God of the New Testament, mate.
Mess with other guy's dicks and you're toast.
Allah is a vengeful god. Much like the Xtian Old Testament god.

Of course raping 9 year old girls is OK for Allah.

RE: Surprise! Scotland's imams oppose gay marriage
Being a scottish atheist I dont care what my local imam thinks. What they dont realize is that over here, just like in the USA, marriage is a state sanctioned union. Not a religious one.
Holding your ceremony at a church is just an (expensive) option

The secret to a happy life is lowering your expectations to the point where they are already met

These imams are in Glasgow anyway. Who cares what goes on down there? Tongue
