Gay Muslims vow to ‘boldly’ challenge Islam on LGBT persecution

GAY ex-Muslims have vowed to challenge Islam and any other faiths that persecute the LGBT community, following their attendance at a Pride parade.

Members of the Council of ex-Muslims of Britain took to the streets of the capital with a series of controversial banners, in a public display of unity.

Among their least controversial signs were: “We’re here. We’re kaffir [unbelievers]. Get used to it”, “Celebrating apostasy,” and “Make LGBT rights universal”.

They also displayed a list of Muslim states that punish homosexuality with the death penalty – including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen and Pakistan.
