The NY Times is reporting on an upcoming (2006) film about Muslim homosexuals. I think it’s a necessary film, because the reality is that they do exist, and how do we as a religious community deal with them, especially when the issue of religion and homosexuality is getting more important internationally as it becomes a wedge issue in the US.
I like his last point, an obvious one, about a vocal minority hijacking the faith.
Unfortunately, it will be this same vocal minority who will scream “Zionist conspiracy,” and “Jews trying to destroy Islam,” because of his work with a Jewish director. I of course see it as bridge-building over common areas of concern.
