Progressive Muslim Leader Speaks Up on Marriage Equality

“As somebody who’s living in a society that recognizes the separation between church and state, between mosque and state, sinagogue and state, or any other type of religious manifestation, I read a book by a lesbian lawyer from San Francisco arguing for gay marriage and I found her argument was absolutely solid in terms of secular principles. So I think if America is true to its secular principles, it would be very difficult to argue against that.”

— Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, American convert to Islam and Muslim religious leader

... I don't expect to see a steady, persistent movement coming out of islam for marriage equality but this is refreshing

I'm surprised but people of all faiths and beliefs will come around in time.

Well, ye gods! An imam who cares about secular government. Someone catch me, I may faint!
