An opening mosque gathers no shortage of controversy
The Danish Islamic Council chose one of the most potentially auspicious weeks in its history to confirm an attitude that is prevalent across the Islamic world: homosexuality is wrong and should be considered an illness.
Or at least that is how Jyllands-Posten reported the matter on Tuesday evening, just two days ahead of the opening of Denmark's first ever grand mosque in Nordvest – a place of worship that critics fear will bring a more conservative form of the religion to these shores, particularly given that Qatar donated 150 million kroner to its construction.
Homosexuality is wrong
Mohamed Al Maimouni, a spokesperson for the Danish Islamic Council – who earlier in the week lamented the limited number of politicians attending the opening (see page 2) – made the comments.
