Taught this past morning, went to a meeting. Left campus in time to go to džuma. During the khutba, the imam made mention of "LGBT" and "gej" for the first time since I had been there. I could only understand fragments of what he said, but let's just say I don't think he was announcing a new LGBT ministry for the youth of the mosque. ;-) I do recall, however, that he said something along the lines of, "To nije normalno. (That's not normal.)"

I wondered what might have triggered his addressing this topic. Afterward it occurred to me that a video and news story had circulated a couple of weeks ago about a Bosnian and Serbian man who had emigrated to the U.S. and who had gotten married in St. Louis. Perhaps this stirred up feelings of looming social disorder or whatever within the Bosnian-American community.

I have definitely endured worse mentions of GLBT issues at mosques, such as after the time that an LGBT Muslim contingent marched in San Francisco Pride for the first time in the summer of 2001. ("That's worse than murder: haraam, haraam, haraam!")

After džuma I exchanged greetings with a man that I had met at the Bosnian-American conference this past September. His greeting was, "How are you, buddy?" I found that amusing.


Peace,

KH
