Islamic Law and Muslim Same-Sex Unions
Amongst the Abrahamic faiths, many United Churches and both the Reform and Conservative Synagogue affirm same-sex unions, but we do not see the same for mosques in Edmonton. Indeed, institutional religious stakeholders are the most resistant to change and are often the last one to reflect change. Any conversation on the issue is met with freezing silence. One strategy is to create alternate spaces and as such much of my work is towards building a religiously plural, gender equal and LGBTQ affirming theology through blogs and articles. My magnum opus is called "Islamic Law and Muslim Same-Sex Unions."
