• Homophobia rate among British Muslims: 100%

    Well, this is disturbing.

    Muslims in Britain have zero tolerance towards homosexual acts compared to their counterparts in France and Germany, according to a survey published today.

    The most dramatic contrast was found in attitudes towards homosexuality. None of the 500 British Muslims interviewed  believed that homosexual acts were morally acceptable.

    By comparison, 35% of French Muslims found homosexual acts to be acceptable. A question on pornography also elicited different reactions, with French and German Muslims more likely than British Muslims to believe that watching or reading pornography was morally acceptable.

    And not much better for other manifestations of sexuality failing the Sharia test.

    On the issue of sexual relations between unmarried men and women, general populations surveyed express similar views, with the majority believing it was acceptable. But the Muslim populations polled again reflected greater diversity on the matter. French Muslims ranked highest again, with 48% believing it was acceptable, followed by 27% of German Muslims responding favourably. British Muslims came last, with only 3% of those questioned personally believing that sex between unmarried men and women was moral. There was a similar outcome when asked for their views on extra-marital affairs.

    And on overall statistics for Islam in the UK:

    Results from the United Kingdom Census 2011 suggesting that by 2011 the total Muslim population had reached 2.7 million, 4.8% of the total population.[2] The vast majority of Muslims in the United Kingdom live in England and Wales: of 1,591,000 Muslims recorded at the 2001 Census,[3] 1,536,015 were living in England and Wales,[4] where they formed 3% of the population in 2001; 42,557 were living in Scotland, forming 0.84% of the population;[5] and 1,943 were living in Northern Ireland.[6] In 2011, it was reported that United Kingdom has around 100,000 converts to Islam (gaining 40,000 since 2001) with 66% of them being women. The number of conversions seems to be increasing, in 2011 alone there were 5,200 converts for that year.

    Well who knows, in not too distant a future stories of Sharia enforcement in London or sexual segragation at University College London may no longer be isolated cases.

    I was raised in the Islamic world. By accident of history, the plague that is entanglement of religion and government affects most Muslim majority nations a lot worse the many Christian majority (or post-Christian majority) nations. Hence, I am quite familiar with this plague. I started doubting the faith I was raised in during my teen years. After becoming familiar with the works of enlightenment philosophers, I identified myself as a deist. But it was not until a long time later, after I learned about evolutionary science, that I came to identify myself as an atheist. And only then, I came to know the religious right in the US. No need to say, that made me much more passionate about what I believe in and what I stand for. Read more...
