"Meet Daayiee Abdullah, America's Gay Imam"

The imam, a "revert" born Sidney Thompson in Detroit, insists that when it comes to male homosexuality, there's wiggle room in Islam's holy writ:
"Those who say there's something in the Qur'an that says it's against homosexuality are using their own interpretation of what they think the Qur'an says," Abdullah said. According to his interpretation, the book supports "sexual diversity." 
Being gay is not socially acceptable in Islam, but that view can't legitimately be based on the Qur'an, he said. 
He acknowledges the way he interprets that Qur'an is an "alternative view."
An "alternate view," eh? You can say that again, imam.
