HuffPo and Puff as You May, Homosexuality is Still a Sin

Huffington Post attempts to normalize homosexuality through a false narrative on the history of Islam.
The writer’s objective is all too obvious. HuffPo writer Maggie MacNeely ignorantly or willfully equivocates the status of eunuchs as ‘transgenders’. They were not. [Link to HuffPo story]

Are there Muslims who practice homosexuality? Most certainly. You may be surprised to learn that the Israeli city of Tel Aviv is the most homosexual city in the world. It is to Tel Aviv that Muslim homosexuals flee to avoid prosecution and persecution in their native countries. But, apart from Afganistan, even Islamists believe homosexual behavior is a sin. [Quran references 7:80-84, 26:165-166, 4:16]
Afghanistan, that Muslim nation between Iran and Pakistan, is rife with pederasty (homosexual relations between men and boys). Learn about Bacha Bazi from Wikipedia:
“Bacha bāzī (Persian: بچه بازی‎‎, literally “boy play”; from بچه bacha, “child”, and بازی bāzī, “game”) is a slang term in Afghanistan for a wide variety of activities that involve child sexual abuse and pederasty. The perpetrator is commonly called Bacha Baz (meaning “pedophile” in Persian). It may include to some extent child pornography, sexual slavery, and child prostitution in which prepubescent and adolescent boys are sold to wealthy or powerful men for entertainment and sexual activities. Bacha bazi has existed throughout history, and is currently reported in various parts of Afghanistan.”
Our military forces are under orders to “look the other way” while Afghan officers rape little boys. Here’s an excellent accounting of this hideous situation from the NY Times: “U.S. Soldiers Told to Ignore Sexual Abuse of Boys by Afghan Allies”. [Link to story]
Yes, homosexual behaviors have been with us over 4,000 years as I document in my story titled “Homosexuality and Tyranny: Bedfellows for over 4,000 years” [Link to story]
It’s helpful to point out the fact murder has been ongoing even longer than homosexuality, dating back to when Cain slew his brother Abel.
Should we then deem murder ‘normal’? No, and we should not deem homosexuality ‘normal’ either. Both are harmful to our fellow citizens and both are anathema to God.
Are there sins worse than homosexuality? Indeed, there are, however, all sin is unacceptable to God. [Bible references Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, 1 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1:26-28]
Apart from blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, there is no such thing as unpardonable sin, including the sin of homosexuality. God sent his son Jesus the Christ, the Messiah or Yeshua Ha-Mashiach to Jews, or Isa to Muslims, to pay the penalty for our sins. As it is written in Romans 10:13,
For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.””
