I read a couple of articles recently in gay publications, attitude and GT, questioning whether the gay community as a whole was racist or not. Neither article were able to find a definate answer.
It is understandable that members of the gay community, myself included, are weary of Muslims especially due to their extreme religious views. However, most people I know wouldn't tar every Muslim with the same brush, just nervous and weary until we get to know someone and look past their religion/skin colour.
Does this make us racist, or just cautious. Is the gay community racist or justified in its apprehension of the Muslim Community?

No, on the basis that muslims are not a race. By you definition, that would make christians a race, which they are not so your question is flawed.

Islam is not a race, it is a relgion. It is not hard to see why many among, if not most of, the LGBT community have major problems with organinsed religions.

Yes, of course there is racism among the LGBT community, as there is among wider society. But that doesn not make the LGBT community as a whole racist.

That really doesnt answer the question. I'll rephrase it. Is the gay community Islamiphobic?

Some are Some arnt.
You cant make a huge generalisation on a whole community based on the opinions of a few.

Questions like
Is the gay community racist or justified in its apprehension of the Muslim Community?

are unfair, there can hardly be a yes or no answer.
Racists and bigots show their ignorance by grouping everyone together like that.

That really doesnt answer the question. I'll rephrase it. Is the gay community Islamiphobic?

If you want a yes or no answer then your never going to get one.

Is Islam homophobic?

I guess it's all about values.

The Gay Community as a whole promotes inclusion, diversity, compassion.

The Institution that is Islam promotes one idealogy above all which is incompatable with the Gay community.

I remember last year in Dublin seeing a handsome looking guy wearing a t shirt which said :
" Don't panic, I'm Islamic "

It is possible to argue that yes, Islam is homophobic. Having said that it doesnt mean that all Muslims are homophobic, in the same way that the Catholic Church is homophobic but not all Catholics are. As was pointed out in one of the articles, Muslims who use te Koran as the justification of homophobic attacks don't mind paying hookers for blowjobs, even though the Koran isnt too hot on that either.

It is entirely possible that people in general are homophobic and happen to use their religion as a justification, although the question must be asked, 'Is hatred against the gay community being taught in the Mosques?'

Islamic guy walks into a gay community centre and says "I'm gay". Immediately he would be congratulated for his courage in coming to terms with it, and then would be included by the community.

Gay guy walks into a mosque and says "I'm a muslim". Immediately he would be ostracised by the Immam and by proxy, the rest of the congregation. Although one or two may accept him and seceretly admire his courage, none will speak out for fear of guilt by association.

A Polar Pope doesn't shit in the woods.

No the LBGT community is not more or less racist or creedist then the wider community. We oppose the views of those that oppose us, that is all. Would a minority in England be racist or creedist for hating the views of the BNP.
