    After the whole 1 in 5 british muslims support ISIS debacle by the Sun, I'm taking every poll published in any paper with a massive grain of salt. If they could show the actual question asked in the survey, then I might take these articles more seriously again

    Gay marriage will likely be repealed in a couple of decades.

    It will not be long until Muslim Brotherhood party / parties appear and start to gain MP's.
    I doubt it. It got passed by a Conservative government, and we're not likely to see a majority radical-religion government any time soon. UKIP is one of the most controversial parties around at the moment, and they only got less than 13% of all the votes.

    It also looks like, of the few people actually voting, not many of them are Muslim.

    I highly doubt it. Even if these extreme parties appear (which I doubt too), they won't be able to convince the masses, which currently seem to support LGBT.

    Could agree with this more!!! 100% true, stupid surveys like just alienate Muslims more and make them more susceptible and attracted to messages like the one Isis preaches.
    You can't just call a scientifically conducted survey 'stupid' because it reveals some harsh truths.

    And how exactly do they alienate Muslims? Surely they alienate the LGBT community who are hopefully becoming aware that a growing community within the UK holds them in such contempt.

    You could check the ICM website for that information, surprised no one has commented on that as of yet in this thread.

    As I said earlier, this will be part of a documentary airing on channel 4 on Tuesday night, I think it's Tuesday, if you are interested about it.

    There was a lot more in the stats, such as, one third thought Sharia should be brought in.
    I want to watch it. Remember what it's called?

    EDIT: Found it. "What British Muslims really think" on Wednesday.

    No sorry, I never knew the name, my sister was talking about it.

    I checked the article, it's Wednesday night documentary, hosted by Trevor Philips. If you look at any TV guide/listing or even channel 4's website it should be fairly self evident which program it is.

    I'm about to go to bed so goodluck finding it, between 5 and 9 pm would be the obvious time to look. Again should take 5 mins if you're lucky. I'm just really tired and I cannot brain anymore lol.

    Not really, the nation does not have an indigenous population. Although a large amount of people are African or part African, nothing specifies that someone from Seychelles is ethnically African.

    They don't need it as long as the Labour continues to work for them. Then when the idiots that run this party realise that they have been duped, it will be too late.The Muslim Brotherhood will get MPs and entire cities.

    They have support in the form of the Labour party. The vast majority of Muslim voters vote for the Labour party, this will certainly change.

    What you have to consider, is what people would actually vote for, gay marriage is not a vote decider for the majority of non-gay people, whilst they may slightly agree, disagree or be neutral on the issue, they will not vote for a party just to defend it. Additionally, the Muslim population (like most immigrant groups) is not spread out throughout the country, but in pockets, pockets that do have their own MP's (just look at how George Galloway got elected, by aiming for the Muslim vote).

    When these parties spring up, they will grow rapidly, then they can begin to lobby against gay marriage and other issues where they will find some extent of support from the general population.

    Again, you need to consider demographics, in 20 years or so, these regions will only grow and with postal voting (another Labour party issue), they can ensure victory, as the head of the household can demand the votes go to his favourite party.

    We are concerned that Muslims hate gays. It is our fu**ing business.

    And homosexuality is not a lifestyle. It's decided in utero.
    And how is it your business ? Elaborate please

    Well, if all Muslims did hate gay people, it would definitely be gay people's business.

    Do you even need to personally know an LGBT individual for it to be "your business" and attempt to uphold equal rights for him as for others? Or are we going with the regressive view that anything that happens outside your own, secluded sphere of existence is somehow of no importance to you?

    Because such a widespread hate can only have terrible consequences for them. Passively watching this angst rising is like being an accomplice to the catastrophe that will follow.

    It's like in the 1930s when we passively watched a death cult growing in another country - you know how it ended.

    As a queer person myself I honestly would say I wouldn't say that it was a massive problem, at the moment. The sample was of 1,802 muslims, which, while is a big number, is in no way a big enough size to state that over half muslims hate gays/want gay marriage banned, and also there is potential that there has been a sampling error or something of that kind, and I would hardly count the Daily Mail as a reliable source, although the Times is a better one. As someone else said further up in the up the post, Muslims make up only 5% of the British population, and half of those are supportive according to this pole which means only 2.5% of the population disagrees with gay marriage.
    And anyway I seem to remember the people who were most against gay marriage being Christians, not pointing fingers or anything but I've received more discrimination from them than I have Muslims ever.
