Gay-friendly mosque to open its doors in Paris


http://now.msn.com/gay-friendly-mosque-to-open-its-doors-in-paris





Paris is about to become Europe’s first city with a gay-friendly mosque, a mosque that refuses to discriminate based on gender. It will allow gay, transgender people and women who don’t want to cover their heads or sit in the back to worship with male and female prayer leaders. Founder Ludovic Mohammed Zahed wants the mosque (its address is currently not publicized) to function both as a place of worship and a refuge for oppressed Muslims. “Current Islamic ethics may condemn this sexual orientation,” Zahed, an openly gay expert on the Koran said to press, “but in fact nothing in Islam or the Koran forbids homosexuality.” The mosque will also perform same-sex marriages and funeral rites for those who have been denied them by traditional mosques.
