I have to shake my head in bewilderment when I hear gay folks defending Islam.
Gays-rights groups have long rabble-roused against anti-gay Christian fundamentalist groups (and, it must be said, often with good cause). But when it comes to Islam, it’s, “Oh…religion of peace…nothing to worry about there.”
Well, believe it or not, a gay person would probably be safer in a Christian fundamentalist church (or ANY Christian church) rather than in a Mosque.
Islam is not a “gay-friendly” ideology. In fact, there are NO gay rights at all under the stranglehold that is Islam.
Homosexuality is condemned by the Qur’an (the main text of Islam as revealed to Muhammed by Allah) and the Hadith (sayings attributed to Muhammed).
The punishment for homosexuality according to Islamic Sharia Law is death. Men accused of being gay under the laws of Islam are punished by being stoned to death, hung from a gallows or burned alive.
The key word is DEATH. Homosexuality is NOT tolerated by Islamists and very few individuals get out alive who get caught. The Gay is considered to be the “most abomnable sin in Islam.”
Homosexuality is a CRIME or is not tolerated in most Muslim-dominated countries. This would include Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Mauritania, Yemen, Nigeria, Somalia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bahrain, Qatar, the Maldives, Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Malaysia and Uzbekistan.
(Israel is the only country in the Middle East where gays are free to be….)
Some American gays argue that Islam is basically a “religion of peace” and that there ARE “moderate Muslims,” so what’s the Big Deal?
For one thing, Islam is not technically a “religion.” Islam is a totalitarian ideology that governs its followers’ entire lives. This includes not only sexuality, but what they can and cannot eat, their finances, what they wear (think of women with bags over their heads), as well as how many times a day to pray.
Muslims are not even allowed to have DOGS.
Secondly, Islam is not a “religion of peace.” “Islam” translates not as “peace” but literally as “submission” and “obedience.” That would be obedience to Sharia Law, by the way. The so-called “peace” comes when everyone in the whole world submits to Sharia Law and Islam.
Thirdly, there is basically no such thing as a “Moderate Muslim.” If a Muslim does not follow the Qur’an or the commands of Allah, then he or she is not a Muslim…he or she is an Infidel.
All Muslims are taught that homosexuality is an abominable sin just as they are all taught that Jews are akin to “apes and pigs” and that women are barely deserving of rights or life.
All Muslims are taught that conversion to another religion is forbidden (and oftentimes punishable by death). Christians are being persecuted and murdered in Muslim-dominated countries…even in Egypt.
“Well,” a gay American might ask, “that can’t happen here in the United States, can it?”
There are currently 2.6 million Muslims in the US. That number is expected to more than double to 6.2 million by 2030. Muslims will be ONE-QUARTER of the entire Earth’s population by 2030.
There are currently 1200+ Mosques in the United States and more are being built each day. Because of “political correctness” and the ridiculous appeasement of all Muslim requests to be “protected” against harassment, there is no way of knowing which Mosques are teaching radical Islam and/or training terrorists.
And consider this…. In the United Kingdom, where Muslims have immigrated in droves, a recent Gallup poll determined tht NOT ONE of the 500 British Muslims questioned believed that homosexuality is “morally acceptable.”
And think about this…. Do Muslims have a group marching in your local Gay Pride event? Do “gay Muslims” speak up in solidarity for their gay counterparts in the Middle East who are being put to death?
Complacency and political correctness ïn the United States is basically akin to a person, gay or straight, slitting his or her own throat with regard to tolerance for Islam.
As the Muslim population in the US continues to grow, more Muslims will become elected officials in our government. And when the balance begins to tip, gays in America, unless they WAKE-UP, are going to be thinking that the pre-Stonewall era was a darn good time.
