Maryland's first Muslim lawmaker Saqib Ali pens op-ed in support of marriage equality: "Homosexuality is strictly forbidden in Islam. As such I have evinced much grief from my most conservative supporters. But I recognize that I represent people of all faiths and no faith at all. If I tried to enforce religion by law — as in a theocracy — I would be doing a disservice to my both constituents and to my religion."

  1. Re: Maryland's Saqib Ali ... If a practicing Muslim can separate church and state to support laws for the common good, why do so many Christians have a problem doing it?

    Sometimes I wonder how peaceful this world would be if organized religions had never gotten such a crazy foothold on our cultures.

  2. Sorry HRC. You lost your significance at least eight years back.

  3. Re: Maryland's Saqib Ali: I just finished reading Bruce Bawer's new book, "Surrender: Appeasing Islam, Sacrificing Freedom" last night and it's ironic to see this item about S.Ali supporting marriage b/c Bawer's book is 100% about the opposite of this: the increasing threat of sharia-based influence in both law and culture (lifestyle). The penultimate chapter of the book especially zeroes in on this in context of gays/homosexuality.

    Just a few weeks ago this site had a video clip of some man walking getting harrassed by Somali kids and a commenter said, "What difference does it make if they're Somali?" but Bruce Bawer's book examines all sorts of problems such as that (harrassment from unassimilated immigrants).

    Therefore I'm relieved to see this item about Saqib Ali! Refreshing!!

  6. I knew Pepin when he was a "young Pepin". He's a smart guy, and some of his HS teachers essentially used dramatically staged faux-agitprop as a teaching method to examine constitutional law issues. In a way that was innovative beyond what he was probably even experienced in law school. I suspect he did this on purpose and knew he would get detained, to expose the issue of police insensitivity toward the GLBT community. For that we can be glad he went to the trouble - thank you Pepin!
