Is Homosexual rape some sort of prescribed Islamic punishment?

The religion is seriously twisted.

No wonder the left loves Islam - they approve of homosexual activity!

This is an interesting angle to contemplate. I freely admit that I am quite ignorant about Islam, but it is my understanding that homosexuals are condemned by Muslims and are in danger of being killed. So, if that is true, are the men who are responsible for meting out this punishment on the Christian then subjected to the threat of being beheaded?

Oh, they did it against a non-believer, that makes it OK. Islam says it is OK to lie to non-believers too. Killing non-believers? Sure.

Culture of death on steroids - a leftist’s dream.

Wow. With that kind of thinking, any action would be acceptable and justifiable then.

And not only that, Islam does not have a Pope or magisterium that would prohibit it. There was a time Islam was more united under a Caliph (who was their equivalent of a Pope), and was more regulated. But now it is like protestantism - Islam is split into groups all over the place and one group’s fatwas don’t have any authority over another group.
