Last month, my wife and I joined a small group of Muslims and thousands of Christians at the annual March for Life in Washington to call for an end to what we believe is the unjust murder of unborn children in America. My wife’s hijab attracted interest, but we didn’t feel out of place among marchers, many of whom were white evangelicals.

  1. I consider that those who reject the right of minority gay lesbian— same sex merriage are the extremist intolerant and against human Right.

    For me, homosexual is not a criminal act, but the sinful act like other sin.
    Progressive Muslim support the minority right, we supported Obama policy regarding gay lesbian right.

    I do not know where is the position of Ahmadiyyah on this issue? We need to know it.

    • I cannot speak about ‘the position of Ahmadiyyah on this issue’. Just my personal view: Every sexual activity is a personal and private thing. What you do in private is between you (and your partner I suppose) and Allah. What is the need to publicize your activity? I am sure many so-called ‘gays’ are attending all kinds of mosques, including Ahmadiyya Mosques, but they do not publicly claim that ‘this needs to be a ‘gay’ friendly mosque’.
