President of UN General Assembly makes anti-gay remarks

Muslims should be careful about advocating that one use religion to judge another human being’s worth. Lest a lot of Christians take their advice to heart. (And same goes for Christians, or Mormons, who advocate the same.)

…remarks made by Ali Abdessalam Treki, who is a former foreign minister of Libya. Treki said in a news conference last week that the issue of homosexuality was “very sensitive, very touchy,” but then added that “as a Muslim, I myself am not in favor of that. … It is not accepted in the majority of the world.”

The United Nations voted last year to urge the decriminalization of homosexuality in countries around the world.
