Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

 


QURAN AND HOMOSEXUALITY

In the West, LGBT ideology helped by a stupid media, seeks to lie that Islam and Christianity can allow you to be a practicing LGBT person.  History should matter.  The right to know what Muhammad/Jesus and Islam/Christianity are should be paramount and true support for LGBT rights means admitting what the faiths teach and helping followers to repudiate that teaching and maybe discard Muhammad or Jesus.  Nobody should need the permission of a god or prophet or holy book to love who they love.

The Quran which is the dictated word of God to Muslims borrows evil doctrines from the Bible.  Christians are to blame for they are the people who sell the Bible and even give it away.  They advertise.  Their faiths are based around the Bible.  The Quran teaches that no unrepentant gay Muslim is to go unpenalised.  Like the Bible, the sex act rather than the person is the problem.  Neither religion condemns anybody for having feelings.

Quran 4: 15 Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women - bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.

4:16 And the two [men] who commit it among you, dishonor them both. But if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone. Indeed, Allah is ever Accepting of repentance and Merciful.

Quran 7 is inspired by the Bible teaching that God murdered the people of Sodom and Gomorrah for gay sex.  Some in desperation try to make out the Bible only condemns them for male rape or inhospitality but not homosexuality.  Fr John McNeill was a liar in that regard.  Sodom and Gomorrah are never claimed to be dangerous inhospitable cities and they may have wanted intimacies with male angels one time but that would have been a once-off.  After all non-gays such as Lot lived there in peace.

The account says nothing about anybody wanting to rape the angels.  But there is no denying what Allah says is the sin and why is there not the same attempt to make the Quran teach what it does not teach?

Quran 7 goes,

[This is] a Book revealed to you, [O Muhammad] - so let there not be in your breast distress therefrom - that you may warn thereby and as a reminder to the believers.
 
I convey to you the messages of my Lord, and I am to you a trustworthy adviser.
 
Then do you wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you, that he may warn you? And remember when He made you successors after the people of Noah and increased you in stature extensively. So remember the favors of Allah that you might succeed.
 
They said, "Have you come to us that we should worship Allah alone and leave what our fathers have worshipped? Then bring us what you promise us, if you should be of the truthful."
 
[Hud] said, "Already have defilement and anger fallen upon you from your Lord. Do you dispute with me concerning [mere] names you have named them, you and your fathers, for which Allah has not sent down any authority? Then wait; indeed, I am with you among those who wait."
 
So We saved him and those with him by mercy from Us. And We eliminated those who denied Our signs, and they were not [at all] believers.
 
And to the Thamud [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, "O my people, worship Allah ; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she-camel of Allah [sent] to you as a sign. So leave her to eat within Allah 's land and do not touch her with harm, lest there seize you a painful punishment.
 
And remember when He made you successors after the 'Aad and settled you in the land, [and] you take for yourselves palaces from its plains and carve from the mountains, homes. Then remember the favors of Allah and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption."
 
Said the eminent ones who were arrogant among his people to those who were oppressed - to those who believed among them, "Do you [actually] know that Salih is sent from his Lord?" They said, "Indeed we, in that with which he was sent, are believers."
 
Said those who were arrogant, "Indeed we, in that which you have believed, are disbelievers."

So they hamstrung the she-camel and were insolent toward the command of their Lord and said, "O Salih, bring us what you promise us, if you should be of the messengers."
 
So the earthquake seized them, and they became within their home [corpses] fallen prone.
 
And he turned away from them and said, "O my people, I had certainly conveyed to you the message of my Lord and advised you, but you do not like advisors."
 
And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, "Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds?
 
Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people."
 
But the answer of his people was only that they said, "Evict them from your city! Indeed, they are men who keep themselves pure."

So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; she was of those who remained [with the evildoers].

And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.
