Orlando shooting: It’s different now, but Muslims have a long history of accepting homosexuality

Muslim societies have ignored their own history of accepting homosexuality, latching on to a twisted colonial legacy instead.

“…Muslim societies once openly spoke of same-sex love, even celebrating it at times. Mahmud of Ghazni, a towering sultan of his time (971-1030), was actually held up as an ideal for, among other things, deeply loving another man, Malik Ayaz.

Mughal Emperor Babur wrote of his attraction to a boy in the camp bazaar in his 16th-century autobiography – a celebrated work of literature in the medieval Muslim world.

In the 18th century, Dargah Quli Khan, a nobleman from the Deccan travelling to Delhi, wrote a fascinating account of the city called the Muraqqa-e-Dehli (The Delhi Album), which described just how mundane homosexuality was in Indo-Islamic society. At the public bazaars, male prostitutes solicited openly and Khan spoke admiringly of how “young good-looking men danced everywhere and created great excitement”.

One more thing that Islam invented – Gay Pride…

  • Dana Garcia

    William S. Burroughs and other Beat poets found Morocco to be gay friendly in the 1950s.


    • Damn right they did.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Gay has always been just beneath the surface in most predominantly Muslim countries.

  • Alain

    So in other words all this killing of homosexuals by Muslims is due to “twisted colonial legacy”. I guess it is also solely due to the same legacy that they carry out honour killings, behead infidels, stone female rape victims and all those other things.

    It is clear that they have no problem with men having sex with men as long as they are not the one getting it in the rear, but I don’t see that equating with “same-sex love”.

    • Islam is a cult of victimhood. It’s always someone else’s fault.

    • Brian Jones

      And lest anyone point out that Muslims were killing gays prior to the “twisted colonial legacy,” one should note that Mohammed looked in his trusty crystal ball, saw the colonial future, and that’s what influenced him and his buddies and early successors started killing gays, stoning women, etc.

  • Martin B

    “…there are five Muslim countries where being gay isn’t a crime. All that the five – Mali, Jordan, Indonesia, Turkey and Albania – have in common is that they were never colonized by the British”

    You knew this was coming, didn’t you? Blame British Colonialism!

    And presenting those five Muzz nations as some sort of rainbow paradise is ludicrous. Yes it’s true that none of them have laws on the books criminalizing male homosexuality. But none of them legally recognize same-sex marriage or any sort of same-sex unions, none of them promote gay equality like Western countries and gay activists do, and three of them – Mali, Jordan and Indonesia – signed a 2008 declaration at the UN opposing LGBT rights:


    • Yup, they can’t help themselves.

    • canminuteman

      Except they’re wrong, because Jordan was a British protectorate.

      • Alain

        Yes, as Jordan was carved out of Palestine and given to the Arabs or should I say “Palestinians”.

    • If it was “British Colonialism” then they would have laws like India — the largest Democracy in the world (Indian Democracy is far from ideal but it’s a start).

      And we better pray that Muslims do not return to the era of homosexual acceptance. Because if they do, Gay rights combined with Islamic fascism will simply be another Islamic instrument of sexual tyranny. It’ll be kinda like Gay rights in the West, where homosexuals and trannys are used as political instruments to repress the rights of others. Gay Muslims? — a double-barreled shotgun in the hands of the fascist Left, and more so in the hands of Islamists.

      Sorry for the pessimism folks (and I do support the right of Gays everywhere to be Gay) but the outcome is as predictable as the law of gravity. If “Islamic reform” means Gay rights Western style, then you can bet your sweet bippy that Islamist Gays in the Middle East will lynch Christians and other minorities instead.

    I can’t tell you how fed up I am with all this rainbow flag shit and homosexual propaganda.

  • The left and Islamists are as gay as tangerines?

    We’re through the looking glass here.

    May I recommend a WH Auden poem ? He’s gay…..it’s got buggery in it….it’s got an Arab as the star turn….it’s got pain and shame and a gay kind of redemption…a voyeuristic element…..

    So if homosexuality is so accepted in muslim culture, what’s with all the killing of gays today? Talk about being screwed up backwards. I don’t think the pederasty, common in so many muslim countries is quite the same as queer culture or being gay today in Western countries where there are laws against having sex with minors (at least for now). Thighing of little girls and child marriages also add to the child abuse.
    Islam also has a long history of necrophilia being acceptable because their prophet one day decided to have “goodbye sex” with a dead woman to ease her time in the grave (there’s a hadith that describes this) or some nonsense. Egypt passed a law not so long ago to make this legal. Rather depraved and soulless. Raymond Ibrahim writes at his site about this issue.

    • It would be a homosexual pedophile paradise. NAMBLA would set up worldwide headquarters there.

      • Linda1000

        That might be a good thing.

  • DMB

    This is the only type of homosexuality allowed in the Islamic world today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZUjD0eUzpc&index=6&list=WL
