To support the transgender movement, Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan yesterday had a Ramadan dinner with Turkey’s best-known transgender celebrity Bülent Ersoy “The Diva” (get this) hours after Istanbul riot police broke up an LGBT rally. Erdogan and his wife, Emine Erdoğan, shared the iftar (eating after sundown) at the end of the Muslim fasting day on Sunday at the presidential residence in the Istanbul.
So while a gay rally is being busted, here is Erdogan having supper with a transvestite. Sounds confusing? No, not if one understands the author of Islam, the devil, who controls Erdogan is himself the author of confusion.
Erdogan has repeatedly angered liberals with his comments on sex and family planning, but has generally supported transgender and homosexuality has never been illegal in the Turkish Republic — it was legalised by the Ottoman Empire in 1858.
The issue of homosexuality and Islam is as confused as the confused individuals who are confused about their gender. Western media is also confused since Islam does not prohibit all forms of homosexuality. Shoebat.com maintained that Islam permits the transgender type.
The Independent for example is beginning to get it when it wrote “Radical Islamists convinced Omar Mateen that being gay is never compatible with being a Muslim – but that’s not necessarily true”.
The Independent has a point. Actually half a point. In Islam Mukhannathun (مخنثون “effeminate ones”, “men who resemble women”, singular mukhannath) is allowed for people who would now be called transgender women (reality they are men).
Scholars in Shiite Iran and Sunni Egypt in fact issued fatwas supporting the right for those who fit the description of mukhannathun to have sex reassignment surgery. In Pakistan, the transgender community there live as hijras, and are officially recognized as a third-gender being neither male nor female.
A lawyer specializing in Islamic law in Pakistan filed a private case in the country’s Supreme Court, asking to recognize hijras as a third gender. At the end of 2009 the chief justice of Pakistan ordered the National Database and Registration Authority to issue national identity cards with a “third gender” category.
The courts discussed from Islamic Sharia that the Mukhannathun have rights. Erdogan’s support for these confused individuals appeals to western liberals and at the same time agrees with Muslim jurisprudence.
In other words, the bottom line is that Islam prohibits and permits homosexuality. Islam’s author of confusion is notorious for using play on words. In Islam a homosexual (Liwati) is banned but if he is effeminate (Mukhannath) he is not. Adultery is forbidden in Islam, of course, but not with concubines, alcohol is forbidden, but not in heaven, prostitution Bagha’ is forbidden but not when its Misyar (marriages where one can contract with a rental overnight wife). Patricide and matricide are forbidden until the parents oppose the son to go on Jihad … you name the sin and Islam becomes the religion of loopholes.
So Islam prohibits masculine gender cross-dressers unless they are effeminate. The rally in Istanbul had both homosexual dominant and submissive. In Islam it is prohibited for masculine men to cross-dress:
the curse is specifically directed only at “males” and “women,” and does not cover non-males who might be female-impersonators (or non-women who might be male-impersonators, if indeed there was a recognition of “non-women”). It’s okay to be a drag queen as long as you are not a straight man posing to gain access to unsuspecting women, or to the wives of unsuspecting husbands.
Islam is a confusing religion. Many are even duped to believe that Islam respects the Virgin Mary while they ignore weird Muslim beliefs. The Ahmadiyyah, the most peaceful sect of Islam, for example believes that Virgin Mary, the Mother of Christ was a hermaphrodite while the other sunni violent sects disagree with them.
But again, we are dealing with a religion where even the word ‘peace’ is also confused to mean “Muslim justice”.
How one knows good from evil is simple. Evil always simplifies the complex and complicates the simple. Jesus even simplified how you know good from evil; “you shall know them by their fruit”.
Normal sex under marriage produces great fruit; children who are made in the image of God. Islam complicates and perverts the truth and reverses everything to even deny we are made in the image of God. Evil is easily recognized:
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
Sweet and bitter is not in the eye of the beholder and a kid can tell the difference.
Keep it kiss. A kiss is when husband and wife touch lips. Two men lips touching should only be allowed when it is necessary to have mouth to mouth resuscitation.
