RE: Allah Loves Everyone! – Europe’s First Gay Imam

Homosexuality is considered a major sin in Islam. Throughout the Muslim world gays, lesbians and transsexuals are persecuted and killed in the name of religion. Nevertheless the French Imam Ludovic Mohamed Zahed is openly gay and moreover preaches a tolerant version of Islam in Europe. But how can he bring together something that the vast majority of Muslims view as totally incompatible? Arte Re: takes a look at a man who is breaking the biggest taboo of Islam.
