What Sharia says about homosexuality....

From here


P17.1 In more than one place in the Holy Koran, Allah recounts to us the story of Lot's people, and how He destroyed them for their wicked practice. There is consensus among both Muslims and the followers of all other religions that sodomy is an enormity. It is even viler and uglier than adultery.

P17.3 The Prophet (PBUH) said:

(1) "Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him."

(2) "May Allah curse him who does what Lot's people did."

(3) "Lesbianism by women is adultery between them."
Note the reference to "other religions” (p17.1) which believe sodomy is an "enormity". There are similar verses in the Old Testament. But the Bible is many voices; it is a library. So it's been subject to exegesis.  Moreover, the New Testament abrogates the Old and Jesus never told his followers to kill homosexuals.  
The Koran, by contrast, is the inerrant word of Allah.  Exegesis is blasphemy and blasphemy is punishable by death.  It is one book, and where there is abrogation, it is usually more violent for the less violent verses.
In most Islamic countries homosexuality is illegal and in a number it is  punishable by death.  ISIS tosses alleged homosexuals off tall buildings with gay abandon (sorry...).  ISIS is not "perverting the religion of peace", as so many apologists would have it.  They are doing  what's in the Koran and in the direct words of Muhammad, as recorded with authorised Islamic jurisprudence.
It's not islamophobic to point this out.
