Gay-friendly mosque stirs controversy among France's Muslims
by Sarah Elzas
A new mosque in France is raising controversy. The 'Mosquée de l'Unicité' (Inclusive Mosque) is open to people of all genders and sexualities. Gay-friendly, it also has women praying alongside men.
French Imams say that a gay mosque is counter to Islam, as it excludes others.
Not so, says founder Ludovic-Mohamed Zahed. He says this is not a gay mosque, but rather a mosque open to everyone, including homosexuals, who, he says, can feel unwelcome elsewhere.
