It's interesting to note, with reference to workmx' cited article on Moral Contents of Anti---- prejudice or however it is termed, that anti-gay prejudice is mostly rooted in the notion of lack of sancitity or degradation associated with gayness.

Is that the case amongst Islamic attitudes towards homosexuality there?

Anti-gayness is also based on ignorance about biology. The biological facts are that human and non-human animals possess a spectrum of morphological and behavioural traits associated with sex, albeit often seen as bi-modally distributed. [ie most individuals are male or female in many species, in others there is serial or simultaneous hermaphroditism, and so on. This is entirely predicted by evolutionary theory, and abundant evidence. So "gayness" is not an abomination [as some religious leaders want us to believe], but entirely natural.

It's real. The bastards did it.

In the yard of a mosque.

Quote:
Two men in Indonesia's Aceh province were publicly caned dozens of times Tuesday for consensual gay sex, a punishment that intensifies an anti-gay backlash in the world's most populous Muslim country and which rights advocates denounced as "medieval torture."

More than a thousand people packed the courtyard of a mosque to witness the caning, which was the first time that Aceh, the only province in Indonesia to practice Shariah law, has caned people for homosexuality.

The crowd shouted insults and cheered as the men, aged 20 and 23, were whipped across the back and winced with pain.

Many in the crush of spectators filmed the caning with cellphones as a team of five robed and hooded enforcers took turns to inflict the punishment, relieving one another after every 20 strokes for one of the men and 40 for the other.
Religion. Mob entertainment. Torture.

I can't help but wonder how many "good Christians" here in the U.S. would be just fine and dandy with gay folks (i.e. abominations) being publicly tortured...and clamoring to memorialize the events by recording them for future pleasure. I can hear them now..."They may be worshiping the wrong gawwwd, but at least them Indonesians know how to handle their queerfolks! Yee-Hawww!!!"

I wonder if homophobia is a "pre-emptive strike" based on the fear of male-on-male rape and the association of sexual submissiveness with femininity (by some).

They look like medieval executioners. They could at least pretend they aren't pining for a return to a time when they could kill sinners
