Clearly Islam is not now and maybe not ever going to give on this issue (or
the Baptists either).  Even among the nonreligious in Asia, for one, some
sins are considered unnatural rather than sins.  "Be fruitful and multiply"
is not only a religious statement - it's an evolutionary statement that is
built into all of us.  So it would seem to most that homosexuals are a
detriment to being fruitful.  But evolutionary theory has shown that
homosexuality can actually​
​ be an asset to the community, and maybe if that is taught in schools (no
time soon, I'll bet) some good will come of it.​
