In each case, Mateen’s religion of Islam was isolated as the underlying cause of violence.
I have been solicited countless times to “explain” Muslims’ alleged homophobia, before but especially after the Orlando tragedy, and each time I have wondered why this homophobia is taken as a given.
This would have to do, in my argument, with a double standard in our perception of the great monotheistic religions and the degree to which we must literally follow them: We expect that Muslims will obey the literal word of the Koran and especially the ahadith, while Christians and Jews are free to interpret their holy texts figuratively, take it or leave it.
The answer to this question greatly impacts whether this highly variable assembly of beliefs, practices, institutions and texts we call “Islam” actually condemns what we might think it not appear anywhere in the Koran, and indeed it couldn’t, because the word is an invention of the late 19th century, when medical societies in Europe tried to place groups of people who took part in similar sex acts under a common category, which they then labeled “homosexuality.”Later on, the community of people pathologized by this term rallied together under the term of their persecution and began to demand recognition, equality and, finally, rights.Muslims do believe, however, that it is their duty to seek out marriage and have children, which is not the same thing as sticking to a sexual orientation, though some have interpreted it as such. “Are these ‘straight’ men really ‘gays’ who are overdue for liberation?In contemporary times, Western travelers to Islamic countries have marveled in bafflement at the ability of local men (and women) to engage in same-sex acts while remaining committed to child-bearing marriages.“Is this hypocritical? Or are humans by nature bisexual, with Arab and Muslim men better tuned into reality than Westerners?Some Muslims, aligned in the Quranist school, prefer to reject all ahadith because they would violate the completeness and perfection of the Koran, because the Holy Book would be incomplete if the ahadith were allowed to exist as a competing authority.Interestingly for this topic, the clearest and most explicit condemnations and punishments of homosexuality exist in these ahadith, and it is thus no wonder that many Muslims who identify as LGBT take the Quranist position and reject them.
”It is this instability of desire that confounds the binary categories of sexual identification that are common currency in North America and Western Europe, as critic Joseph Massad has insisted in his book Up till this point, I have only broached a set of problems related to the distinction between acts and identities.
