Muzammil H. Siddiqi, PhD Biography

Religious Director, Islamic Society of Orange County
Con to the question "Is Sexual Orientation Determined at Birth?"

“Those who insist on this lifestyle, consider it legitimate and feel ‘gay pride,’ we should not associate with them and should not take them as friends. We should certainly avoid those people. If we see a person who has committed this sin and wants to repent then we should help that person as much as we can to get out of this evil. We should not leave him/her to the temptations of Devil.”
