I don't know, but Old Testament or other Jewish scriptures also oppose LGB+

I wish more Muslims could see that and be more vocal/open supporters of LGBT rights.
That is going to be tricky when most don't accept it.

You can make it that way. My argument, as a Muslim myself, is that ony Allah can judge- that job has not been given to us. So I love and accept everyone as long as they are good people with good intentions. I won't judge, hate OR EVER attack someone, that's none of my business. You can't fight hate with hate anyway so just love.

The LGBT community has a lot of problems with biphobia, transphobia, and sexism but they don't want to seem to acknowledge that, preferring to champion other groups' cause.
I heard of transphobia and racism within the LGBT community but bisphobia ?This is the first time I have heard of it.Where did you hear of this ?
Are you watching the programme Queer Britain on BBC Iplayer ?Its very interesting ,discusses many issues within the LGBT community such as religion,homeless,body issues,racism ,porn etc.
I think you would enjoy it .

Biphobia is very common unfortunately. I've been told by other gay men and women that I can't be bi and can only like men or women. Bisexuals are not taken seriously by some gay people. In fact, there are some gay people want bisexuals and transgenders to be excluded from the LGBT community so that it will just be the Lesbian and Gay community.

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll have a look at it.

Not every muslim person thinks lgbt people should be punished or killed or that our identities should be illegal. Why? Because, like with christianity, you can interpret and follow your holy book as you please. Hell, when I came out in college, the only people to accept me were three muslim girls, who told me that they feel it is an outdated mindset to have anything against lgbt people. Even before that, I knew not to make a collective assumption of people who can follow a religion and yet still have differing - sometimes vastly - beliefs. It makes perfect sense because it's called exercising common sense. You should try getting some.
As a Muslim, I have three besties with two being gay and the other bi x Before I met them, I judged and was a bit mean about the LGBT community but it just goes to show how actually meeting and befriending these various humans can change your perspective.

"Do not plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard; if you do, not only the crops you plant but also the fruit of the vineyard will be defiled. Do not plow with an ox and a donkey yoked together. Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together." (Deuteronomy 22:9–11)

While in the Bible it does say that being a homosexual is wrong. The vast majority of current Christians and Jews do not want to criminalise being LGBT. Most of them believe that being gay is fine.

However, the vast majority of Muslims still believe that being gay is wrong and would want to make it illegal if they could.

There are far more extremists in the religion of Islam.
Have you looked at Westboro, or the LRA? There are plenty of christian organisations that kill, or would if given the option, kill gay people, let alone outlaw them. There are plenty of hardline Christians out there. The ones that aren't are "culturally Christian" as @theoneandonlybob says. There are also people who are culturally Muslim. That's all fine, but it makes comparing Christians, Jews and Muslims confusing if you're comparing hardliners to people who are only vaguely religious.

You can't single out particular religions when they all do the same thing when they stick to the books. Abrahamic faiths as a whole are against LGBT people. You can't hide from that; they don't believe it is fine. Why do you think it has taken so long for gay marriage to be a thing? Or for same sex couples to adopt? Why do you think these things are repeatedly being repealed in parts of incredibly Christian America?

Thanks for choosing groups that represent such a small minority of Christians. While a survey done by channel 4 and the ICM in April 2016, shows that 52% of Muslims in Britain believe that homosexuality should be made illegal. While 23% want sharia law, which the punishment for homosexuality would be death. These statistics would be a lot worse if they were taken in Muslim majority countries.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...ity-sharia-law
The statistics don't lie. Muslims are a lot less tolerant than practically any other type of religious people. Christians and Jews are a lot more tolerant when it comes to homosexuality.
You do bring up the point of why it took so long to legalize gay marriage. This is because Christianity and its followers went through a stage where they became more modern and up to date with current perceptions of homosexuality. Eventually resulting in the legalization of gay marriage. But the point is that it's legal for gay people to get married in America (Christian majority country). Go to Saudi Arabia looking for gay marriage, you will be executed. Want to be gay in Iran? You will be killed. It is illegal to be gay in many of the Muslim majority countries, and in some cases it will result in death.
Obviously not all Christians and Jews are tolerant. Obviously not all Muslims are homophobes, but a large percentage of them are. Let’s not lie to ourselves here. So yes I am singling out Islam, and for a damn good reason.
