‘A Sinner in Mecca’ documents gay Muslim pilgrimage

NEW YORK (AFP) — The confession of a Pakistani murderer. Overzealous religious police. An Arab angered his pregnant wife was molested in the holiest site known to Islam.

A new film made by a gay Muslim pilgrim offers a English-speaking Western audience a warts-and-all view of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in a documentary that has attracted death threats and an online hate campaign.

    Even this (muslim) filmmaker said the window of time in which Islam could be reformed was closing. I wonder whether it will be possible to make a film such as this, even in America, in say 10, 20 years. To borrow a book title from K.R. Jamison: Night Falls Fast.

      Imagine the smell: in that heat and bundled up like that they must all be sweating like nuts. Eww! I also wonder how many outhouses they have to put up for the “pilgrims” ….

Word gets round fast in third world islamic nations with too many first world technological gadgets like iPhones etc.
