    This is pretty old news. What prompted you to post it today?

    My view is that these men should not have been prosecuted. A lot of the problems we are encountering today is that there is insufficient space for people to voice their opinion - even hateful opinion - and that includes insufficient space for people to harshly criticise Islam as it deserves

    "The men distributed a leaflet that said Islam called for anyone caught committing homosexuality to be executed."

    When I see 'people' like this, somehow I forget my actual views and start supporting the death penalty.

    Notice they are trying to play victim by claiming the UK is trying to make parts of Islam illegal (rather than simply abhorrent)

    I can't see how these guys would appeal what they've done. The two guys who justified it at the end did so unashamedly. Ignorance. Where is the humanity? This clearly is not Islam.

    I think they are going to play the 'we don't say this OUR FAITH says this so should be exempt as it is our faith' card.

    Given islam's homophobia (as this example shows) aren't you islamophobic for disliking this aspect of Islam?

    What if someone is Islamophobic because of the sexist and homophobia inherent within Islam?

    There is a difference in disagreeing RESPECTFULLY with someones lifestyle and spreading hate and ignorance.
    For example, an atheist disagrees with the lifestyle of a religous person, however he is not gonna express hate, Right?

    Similarly, Muslims should not say hateful things against homosexuals. Saying things like " You will go to hell " or "you are filthy " is pretty disrespectful and hateful
    They should simply say we disagree without making any negative or rude remarks,

    Thats it

    Death penalty for holding views and distributing leaflets communicating those views?

    The views may be disgusting as is trying to spread them, but is the death penalty really a proportionate response ?

    But it's what their faith says are you saying to muslims your faith is wrong? If so you are an Islamophobia

    As I said given Islams inherent homophobia and you don't like homophobia you don't like parts of islam so you are a Islamophobia so you must hate yourself.

    and how do you tell someone part of their faith is abhorrent in a respectful manner?

    Being gay is not a lifestyle. There is no respectful way of 'disagreeing' with homosexuality, just like there is no respectful way of disagreeing with being black or disabled or ginger or left handed.

    It's simple. You don't tell them in a respectful manner.

    The 'tolerate the intolerant' brigade is exhausting. Go away.
