Homosexual union celebrated in French mosque
CWN - April 11, 2012
An Islamic leader in France has given his blessing to the union of a homosexual couple.
Although same-sex marriages are not legally recognized in France, the imam of the mosque in Sevran performed the usual marriage ritual for a homosexual couple: an Algerian-born French man and his South African lover. The ceremony—which took place in February, but has only now come to light—is likely to provoke a severe reaction from other Islamic groups.
