East London Mosque Bans Homophobic Imams

Ban homophobic clerics from mosques, gay rights campaigners urge from The Guardian

The East London mosque is now distancing itself from a Muslim man who put up “Gay-Free Zone” stickers in and around the borough where the mosque is located.

In addition, the mosque claims that they will no longer welcome imams and speakers who have made homophobic remarks. Free speech concerns aside, I don’t think we can expect many conservative imams to support gay rights but they can do their part by not encouraging an environment of hateful speech, which leads to a climate where gays are attacked.
