Homophobia and Religion

One of my friends recently pointed me to this article in Time Out London that discussed a mosque putting a ban on homophobic rhetoric and speakers. This is a great victory for the LBGT Muslim community, one that should be celebrated. It is particularly important to note since an unfortunate number of hate crimes has been recently committed against LBGT Muslims, and this is one way to discourage the kind of hatred and fear that Islam works against.
