SpoonfulOSugar posted a topic in Mormons - MormonismThe Mormon church is doubling down on its position on gay marriage, declaring that gay couples are apostates AND finding that children of same sex couples cannot be blessed or baptized (blessings are normally done for infants and baptism around age eight). WaPo story on the subject (See Huntsman's daughter's comments)
Here's a document written about apostasy in Islam. On pages 7 and 8, it clearly spells out that the penalty for apostasy (heresy) is death, and even goes to some lengths to argue that apostasy is treason and the person should be killed during this lifetime, and not just punished by Allah in the hereafter. http://www.docstoc.com/docs/97278293/Apostasy-in-Islam On page 20, there's also a claim that Baha'is aren't really being persecuted by the Iranian government - despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecutio ... %27%C3%ADs He's also written some lovely stuff about how the West is morally bankrupt for starting to accept homosexuals instead of giving them lashes or stoning them to death as required by Islam. He even throws in some junk science references to AIDS www.al-islam.org/marriage-and-morals-is ... osexuality Of course, women can avoid the lure of lesbianism simply by following his advice to marry early. Very, very early, since puberty is said to start at age 9 in girls. www.al-islam.org/marriage-and-morals-is ... lugh-rushd Here's more information about the author: jaffari.org/IslamInFocus/SayyidMuhammadRizvi.php These pamphlets is clearly listed as his publications, and he is clearly the Iman of the Jaffari Islamic Centre - which is a few minutes drive from my house, on my route to work.
