Why do Homosexuality and Pederasty have always been accepted by the Muslim civilization more then the Cristian one?
S'gjen ndonji zok qi kendon,
Te gjithe jane e po qajne.
I mjeri ashik sa fort po duron,
Prej dyllberit po e dajne.
Dilli, qi len ne mengjes
Si ti, o djal, kur me zallandise
Kur me kthen syt' e zes'
Shpirt ment prej kres' mi gremise. You'll find no bird that sings,
They all just sit and cry.
The poor lover, how strongly he endures,
[For] they separate him from his beloved. The sun, when it rises in the morning,
Is like you, boy, when you are near me.
When your dark eye turns upon me,
It drives my reason from my head.
— Neçín of Përmet, son of Ali Pasha Frakulli, mid 19th century; translation by Nicholas Zymarishttp://www.axios.org/doku.php?id=on_...x_gay_may_1997But I am not merely relying on books. There are parishes both here and abroad which have never stopped doing adelphopoeia, and know exactly what it is for, particularly in Albania. Now, John Boswell knew many languages, but not Albanian, but even he found some references in translation to what went on there. I know Albanian, and interviewed Albanian Orthodox in 1991, when the churches were just reopening after decades of communist oppression. In the same year, there were rites of vellameria (the Albanian name for the rite) performed in the Orthodox church in Elbasan. All Albanians I spoke to (not Albanian Americans, I might add, who do not seem to generally be familiar with vellameria) knew about the rite, but only the ones from Elbasan had witnessed one. I talked with an individual from the late dictator Hoxha’s birthplace, Gjirokaster (also known as Argyrokastro, Greek for “silver castle”) who gave a simple but moving account of how Hoxha’s attempts at promoting both atheism and homophobia miserably failed; in his hometown people now practiced their religion, and as far as the anti-gay violence and sentiments found elsewhere, “that is unknown where I come from; everyone eats at the same table and those differences don’t matter”. As far as vellameria and the fact that some researchers in the U.S. think it is a gay marriage, he simply said, “Yes, that’s what it is for”. No shock, no need to explain it away or make elaborate theories to obscure the fact. Other Albanians had no difficulty, despite their heterosexuality, with going over my translations, word for word, of a number of Albanian gay love songs and giving their insights on the terms. Not one of over 20 Albanians I spoke to about this was uncomfortable with this, unlike most Albanian Americans who seem to have acquired American homophobia in many cases.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albanian_pederastyAlbanian pederasty was a custom reported by Western travelers in the 19th century." Among these are counted Edvard Westermarck John Hobhouse, 1st Baron Broughton, who in his travel journal reports that pederasty was "openly practiced," and Johann Georg von Hahn, also known as "the father of Albanian studies. According to these reports it was common and socially accepted for young men between sixteen and twenty-four to court boys from about twelve to seventeen. 
In the literature, the older lover is called ashik (after the Arabic ishq, "passionate love") and the beloved, or dyllber (after the Turkish dilber, "beautiful"). A Geg married at the age of 24 or 25, and then he usually, but not always, gave up boy-love.
The practice was curtailed by the advent of communism in 1944.
http://calledoutbeliever.web.officel...s/Marriage.docIn the Balkans, same-sex marriage survived until modern days, in the form of the Albanian rite of vellameria, "brother bond."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacch%C3%A1 A-stan, P-stan, Persia etc.In the Ottoman empire, same-sex relations between men and youths were often of a mercantile nature. The sex workers involved were either entertainers such as the köçeks or masseurs in the hammams known as tellak. The sexual doings of the Turks came under frequent criticism by their Christian neighbors. There were exceptions as well. Osman Agha of Temeşvar who fell captive to the Austrians in 1688 wrote in his memoirs that one night an Austrian boy approached him for sex, telling him "for I know all Turks are pederasts". The European conception of "all Turks are pederasts" possibly rooted in the often military nature of contacts with Ottoman Turks. Although zamparas (men drawn to women) outnumbered kulamparas (men drawn to boys) in society, Turkish military culture (especially Janissary culture) had pederasty as a principal aspect. Young Christian soldiers who were imprisoned by Turks were often raped and Janissary regiments (named orta) would frequently engage in skirmishes for rights over a young and beautiful novice (civelek). In 1770s, Âşık Sadık the poet wrote, in an address to the Sultan: Lût kavmi döğüşür, put kavmi bozar. Askerin lûtîdir, bil Padişahım ("The people of Lot fight, the people of idolatry spoil. Know, my Sultan, that your soldiers are sodomites"). Studies of Ottoman criminal law, which is based on the Sharia, reveal that persistent sodomy with non-consenting boys was a serious offense and those convicted faced capital punishment.
