Being gay is not a lifestyle choice
Amer Aziz rightly points out in his recent Another Voice that the cowardly actions of the Orlando shooter are antithetical to Islam and the Muslim community. Aziz had my wholehearted support for his statements, until I reached the end of his column.
Being gay is not a lifestyle choice. Gay people don’t choose to be gay anymore than they choose their eye color. I would say we all need to educate ourselves about each other.
