One of the grilling hot seats of controversies that breed not only human and public discrimination but fierce judgment is the issue of homosexuality. The grilling questions are: Are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people corruptions of human nature and dignity? Or are they the design of creation that expresses uniqueness and evolution? These essential questions are crucial in order to address the root issue. And this book was created for that purpose. This book serves as an open letter to both the LGBT and Islamic communities. We´ll address:The right approach we should carefully consider when we deal with both parties The essential ideological heart cry of LGBT as an identity, individuals, and community Why the terms corruption and creation are a valid argument in their own contextual views but invalid when compromised to other´s views Why LGBT is in fact a great economic resource for progress The context of Islam for giving a severe punishment against LGBT Why Islam´s opposition against LGBT is a sacred devotion The author´s burden of seeing no hope of reconciliation for both parties The common ground we can build in order to control the clashing storm of opposition coming from each party 1.
