First Muslim lesbian couple married in the UK. Now they fear for their lives.

Few things confuse me more than gay people that still consider themselves Christian or Muslim.  Why would you pledge allegiance to a god and a people who so clearly despise you?

Anyway, a lesbian Muslim couple recently became the first such couple to wed in the UK.

Rehana Kausar, 34, and Sobia Kamar, 29, from Pakistan, tied the knot at a registration office in front of their solicitors and two Pakistani friends earlier this month.

The couple then immediately applied for political asylum in the UK claiming that their lives would be in danger if they were to return to their native Pakistan.

This marriage affects nobody else.  It literally has zero relevance to the lives of pretty much everybody in Pakistan.  And yet, predictably, many of them are so concerned with how these two women find happiness that they’d be willing to kill them.  How many more agree that these two women should be killed, even if they’re unwilling to make the threats or pull the trigger themselves?

And wh0, in their right mind, could possibly believe these women would be in so much danger had humankind never dreamed up Allah?
