This made me curious, and I decided I'd see how many gay friendly Christian churches there are in the US, just as a comparison..
There are nine..........in my home city alone.
459 in NYS.
Here's analagous stuff in the US
In this brisk Monday night in late October, members of Muslims for Progressive Values, a nascent American reformist organization, had gathered
from around the country to celebrate a milestone: In four years, the group had grown from a few friends to a thousand members and spawned a string of
small mosques and spiritual groups that stretched from Atlanta to Los Angeles.
Today, as America's Muslim leaders debate controversial topics like political radicalism inside mosques and states' attempts to ban Shariah law,
this growing network of alternative mosques and Islamic groups is quietly forging a new spiritual movement.
They're taking bold steps, reinterpreting Islamic norms and re-examining taboos. While far from accepted by mainstream clerics, these worshippers
feel that the future of the religion lies not solely with tradition but with them. Women are leading congregations in prayer, gay imams are performing
Islamic marriages, and men and women are praying side by
US is a bit ahead in terms of Progressive Islam it seems. Maybe because of the racism resulting from 9/11 creating a need to prove themselves as
different than extremists?
There are 155,000 Muslims in Paris,link
Many say there is something like 10% of people are gay, this is a myth, it's more like 2%.
Still stands to reason that there should be some 3,000 gay Muslims in Paris.
They deserve a welcoming place
