A Muslim Maryland state legislator voiced his support of same-sex marriage in a local newspaper.
My stance on this issue isn't politically expedient. I am the first Muslim in the legislature. Homosexuality is strictly forbidden in Islam. As such I have evinced much grief from my most conservative supporters.
But I recognize that I represent people of all faiths and no faith at all. If I tried to enforce religion by law -- as in a theocracy -- I would be doing a disservice to my both constituents and to my religion.
My own Congressman, Andre Carson (D-IN), is also Muslim. He is a co-sponsor of ENDA and also supports marriage equality. Kinda sets some of those prejudices a lot of people have about Muslims back a notch, doesn't it?
Anyone know any Mormon politicians who supports our marriage rights?
