For the love of my Country, I disagree with Obama


Originally Published in The Philadelphia Inquirer

As an Ahmadi Muslim, I oppose the president’s position on gay marriage.

Islam teaches us to be kind to other human beings. Therefore, discriminating against a gay person would be a violation of my faith. However, the Quran also reminds us of the people of prophet Lot, who practiced homosexuality. After countless warnings, Lot’s people were destroyed by God because they refused to change.

As a Muslim who loves and prays for the United States, I worry that the same could happen to this great country.
