News Tribune reported on Saturday about LGBT Americans protesting President Trump’s immigration order restricting travelers from 7 specific nations (majority Muslim) from entering the United States.
From News Tribune:
NEW YORK – Thousands of LGBT Americans raged against President Donald Trump outside the Greenwich Village bar where the gay rights movement was born. They demand that the president suspend his immigrant ban.
The activists gathered by the Stonewall Inn on a chilly Saturday afternoon, chanting “Resist, resist!”
Activist Cathy Renna says LGBT Americans have been deeply affected by what she calls “the horrible things Trump has been doing” because their community includes gay Muslim men, immigrants and women hurt by rollbacks on reproductive rights.
It begs the question; why the hell would anyone that is a homosexual or transgender person protest this ban?
This restriction would affect primarily Muslims by a wide margin simply because of the nations that were selected. A vast majority of Muslims are vehemently against homosexuality because the Qur’an condemns homosexual acts.
“We also sent Lut : He said to his people : “Do ye commit lewdness such as no people in creation (ever) committed before you? For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds.” Qur’an 7:80-81
“What! Of all creatures do ye come unto the males, and leave the wives your Lord created for you? Nay, but ye are forward folk.” Qur’an 26:165
If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone; for Allah is Oft-returning, Most Merciful. Qur’an 4:16
But Jews and Christians have quotes in their Holy books that read the same! True, but Christians do not follow the old testament prescriptions and Jews likewise ignore theirs in terms of punishments. Most Christians who disagree with homosexual behavior simply mind their own business. Some may want a family to seek counseling or therapy.

The vast majority of Muslims from these 7 nations (and others) have severe penalties for being a homosexual. The vast majority of Muslims subscribe to the 4 schools of Islamic Jurisprudence (Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki, Shafi’i).
While they may disagree with each other on the method, these schools are all in agreement that the penalty for homosexuality is death.
From MEMRI TV:
Citing a hadith according to which both parties to a homosexual act should be executed, Sheikh Rebaï said that the only disagreement among Sunni scholars was over the method of execution, with the Hanafi school advocating throwing them down from a high place and then stoning them to death.
