There is no question that Ataturk was a homosexual. He had a lifelong friend which he dumped for a younger model later on. I don't know about Islam, but our culture looks down om homosexuals. It is an abomination. Islam has a admonition "do not spill your seed on the ground" or close to that. That does not mean " Park it in your cousins bum.

I don't believe any of our founding fathers were homosexual. And that is telling too.
