(p.103) Chapter 4 Understanding Views in Muslim Countries
Cross-National Public Opinion about Homosexuality

Amy Adamczyk

University of California Press

This chapter tells the story of public opinion about homosexuality in Turkey, Malaysia, and Indonesia, each of which has a substantial proportion of Muslims and highly religious residents. Similar to the selection of Protestant nations, these three countries vary in their level of democracy, economic development, and attitudes about homosexuality. This chapter also uses information from over four hundred newspaper articles from these nations. The findings reveal that Turkey is more likely to frame homosexuality as a rights and civil liberties issue. Conversely, Malaysia is less likely to mention not only rights but also morality and religion. The various frames used to discuss homosexuality are tied to some of the unique factors manifested in the historical, political, and cultural contexts of these nations, as well as anticipated patterns related to economic development, democracy, and the religious context.

Keywords:   Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia, Muslim, newspaper articles, rights, morality
