Q:are u queer ?
Nihil humanum a mihi alienum puto.
I believe nothing human to be alien to me.
Q:What are your thoughts on that Scott kugle book? I'm looking forward to reading it. I know he's a professor of Islamic studies and a convert to Islam who also happens to be gay.
I got the book sometime last year and I’ve read it in dribs-and-drabs pretty much cover-to-cover. I have to say, I was really impressed with it!
Kugle’s got a bit of stick (—you only have to go see some of the reviews on Amazon, or YouTube comments on his videos—) for putting a ‘modern’ slant on Islam, but I don’t think anyone who reads his book can seriously accuse him of that; he makes it quite clear that he’s indebted to classical sources and scholars, who he cites throughout for every single argument.
The book is invaluable for anyone interested in the crossection of LGBT+ issues in a religious or cultural context.
Q:I don't like your extreme liberal views Mr.
Forgive me, Bill.
