Does the Koran Sanction Homosexuality?

You be the judge. Here’s what a book about the profligate, degenerated, proud pedophile William Burroughs says: “Homosexuality is forbidden in Islamic law: ‘For the unmarried, one hundred lashes and exile for a year, for the married, one hundred lashes and stoning to death’ (Sura IV:15), but “And there shall wait on them [the Muslim men] young boys of their own, as fair as virgin pearls’ (Sura LII:24), and ‘They shall be attended by boys graced with eternal youth, who will seem like scattered pearls to the beholders’ (Sura LXXVI:19). In any case, the Moroccans always had a more relaxed attitude toward homosexuality than most other Muslim countries (or Christian ones). Long before the arrival of sexual tourism by westerners, as far back as 1632, the Scottish traveler William Lithgow reported that in Fez there were twelve thousand allowed brothels and ‘three thousand common stewes of sodomitical boys. Nay, I have seene at mitday, in the very market places, the Moores buggering these filthy carrions, and without shame or punishment go freely away’” (Call Me Burroughs, 293).

When the infamous cake baking incident hit the fan, and a Christian baker was driven out of business for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a gay marriage, it was little reported that Muslim bakers also refused when asked. It was not at all reported – to my knowledge – that none of them were driven out of business.

Another oddity, curiosity, is this: Why is much made over the 72 black-eyed virgins each Muslim martyr gets in paradise – some by the way think the word is not “virgins” but “white grapes” (Look it up.) – but nowhere, save the above, have I heard mention made of young boys being there?
