Sydney Muslim cleric says same-sex marriage a non-issue in Islamic community
Sydney, June 26 (ANI): A senior Muslim cleric in Sydney has said same-sex marriage is not an issue in the Islamic community.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Sheik Yahya Safi, the head Imam at the Lakemba Mosque, also said that it is rare to find a gay Muslim.
"In Islam, we believe it's a major sin to have such relations between men and men, a sexual relation," he said, adding, "We don't discuss this because it's obvious."
Sheik Safi's comments come after the Salvation Army apologized for comments by a leading church official that homosexuals deserved to die. (ANI)
