Review of Jihad For Love

Two major points are made in this documentary.  First, homosexual Muslims have a difficult time reconciling their sexuality with their deeply held faith.  Second, in many Muslim countries, the government places extreme hardship upon practicing homosexuals.

These are interesting, although completely unsurprising, facts that are told over and over by the often blurred subjects of this film.  There are no moments of particular insight and no visible solutions that are presented during this approximately ninety minutes of celluloid.

These men and women face many of the same problems that are faced in many Christian communities today and in many Christian dominated nations of the very recent past (U.S. and Britain, for example).  To the extent that one views a religion as an immutable truth incapable of adjusting to minorities or to societal progress, a gay adherent of that religion will face internal conflicts.  To the extent that there is no clear line between the laws of man and the tenants of the religion, good people needlessly suffer.

I begin to lose patience with those who inflict pain upon themselves by accepting tenets that every experience of their being shows to be false.
