As is commonly known, homosexuality is a death sentence under Shariah law, but it seems that, at least according to the MSM and American liberals, that Chik-fil-a is a far greater threat. So, let’s take a look at this, and see where the facts take us.
First up, The Progressive Puppy takes a look at how homosexuals are treated in Islamic countries…
These days, gays and lesbians live in terror under Islam. Spiegel International: In most Islamic countries, gay men and women are ostracized, persecuted and in some cases even murdered. Repressive regimes are often fanning the flames of hatred in a bid to outdo Islamists when it comes to spreading “moral panic.” …More than 30 Islamic countries have laws on the books that prohibit homosexuality and make it a criminal offense. In most cases punishment ranges from floggings to life imprisonment. In Mauritania, Bangladesh, Yemen, parts of Nigeria and Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Iran convicted homosexuals can also be sentenced to death. In those Muslim countries where homosexuality is not against the law gay men and women are nonetheless persecuted, arrested, and in some cases murdered. Although long known for its open gay scene, Egypt has recently started to clamp down hard. The lives of homosexuals are monitored by a kind of vice squad who tap telephones and recruit informants. As soon as the police have accumulated the kind of evidence they need they charge their victims with “debauchery.”
Then, there is more, people are devoted to tracking down, and then killing homosexuals in these countries…
One of the worst offenders is Iraq, where over 4,000 U.S. troops sacrificed their lives bringing “freedom” to the Iraqi people and where the murder of gays by roaming Sharia death squads is standard procedure. From Guardian UK: Sitting on the floor, wearing traditional Islamic clothes and holding an old notebook, Abu Hamizi, 22, spends at least six hours a day searching internet chatrooms linked to gay websites. He is not looking for new friends, but for victims. “It is the easiest way to find those people who are destroying Islam and who want to dirty the reputation we took centuries to build up,” he said. When he finds them, Hamizi arranges for them to be attacked and sometimes killed. Hamizi, a computer science graduate, is at the cutting edge of a new wave of violence against gay men in Iraq. Made up of hardline extremists, Hamizi’s group and others like it are believed to be responsible for the deaths of more than 130 gay Iraqi men since the beginning of the year alone. (Many of them were tortured.)
The author goes on to point out that even though many lives were sacrificed to bring about “democracy” in Iraq, we saw through that war, as well as the
“Arab Spring” Tyrant Exchange Program, that extermists now rule-literally, if not formally. Frankly, The Progressive Puppy makes a good point. Then again, that is what democracy does-it’s the 51% abusing the living (you know what) out of other 49.
Alright then, we see that even the progressives are noting that homosexuals are being KILLED in these countries, yet there isn’t much of an outcry. Then, what of Chik-fil-a, whose CEO happens to espouse Christian beliefs?
The other day, we covered that several cities, including Boston, are telling Chik-fil-a, “nyet comrade,” when it comes to opening restaurants in their cities. However, Boston’s Mayor, Tom Menino seems to go out of his way to help some Muslims, who just so happen to advocate the DEATH OF HOMOSEXUALS! The Boston Globe has more…
Given his stance on Chick-fil-A, would Mayor Tom Menino grant permits to a group that has counted among its leaders a man who has repeatedly called homosexuality a “crime that must be punished” by death?
Actually, he has done that??.?.?.?and more! Menino effectively gave away city land valued at $1.8 million to the organization, and he gave a speech at its ribbon-cutting ceremony.
It’s the Islamic Society of Boston’s mosque, and when it comes to anti-gay sentiment, one of its early supporters makes Chick-fil-A look like the Provincetown Men’s Chorus
…reporters discovered that the Islamic Society of Boston counted imam Yusef al-Qaradawi as one of its spiritual guides. As the Weekly Standard reported at the time:
“The ISB does not dispute the fact that they have repeatedly used al-Qaradawi as a tool to raise funds for the Boston mosque, printing a brochure that highlighted al-Qaradawi’s enthusiastic support of the mosque and playing a videotaped message of support from him at a 2002 gathering.”
Also in attendance at the gathering, listening to al-Qaradawi’s message: Mayor Tom Menino.
Outside Boston, al-Qaradawi is better known as a vocal supporter of terrorism who teaches a hard-core version of Islam. His claim to fame as a “progressive” is that he was the first prominent imam to urge women to become suicide bombers, too.
Well, at least they’re not Christians, or anything truly dangerous like that, right?
And what does this al-Qaradawi say about homosexuality?
“[A homosexual should be given] the same punishment as any sexual pervert??.?.?. Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them.”
According to the Anti-Defamation League, “In 2003 Qaradawi stated on IslamOnline that the punishment of homosexuality is the death penalty.”
OK then, Christians are bad, very, very bad; but a radical Imam that calls for the death of homosexuals is just fine?
Of course, Chicago is another city that has told Chik-fil-a to take a hike, but once again, Islamic groups seem to be perfectly welcome, like the Nation of Islam. Here is what their Leader says…
In Its Own Words
“[T]he Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man. He wasn’t a great man for me as a black person, but he was a great German. Now, I’m not proud of Hitler’s evils against Jewish people, but that’s a matter of record. He raised Germany up from nothing. Well, in a sense you could say there’s a similarity in that we are raising our people up from nothing.”
— Louis Farrakhan, radio interview, March 11, 1984
“Jews have been conclusively linked to the greatest criminal endeavor ever undertaken against an entire race of people … the black African Holocaust. … The effects of this unspeakable tragedy are still being felt among the peoples of the world at this very hour.”
— The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews (NOI book), 1991
“Who are the slumlords in the Black community? The so-called Jews. … Who is it sucking our blood in the Black community? A white imposter Arab and a white imposter Jew.”
— Speech by NOI national official Khalid Muhammad, Nov. 29, 1993
“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!”
— Louis Farrakhan, Saviours’ Day speech, Feb. 26, 2006
So, you would think that Chicago would be rather dim on that organization? Not so, as a restaurant owned by that organization was welcomed with open arms.
OK, what are we to take from this? Here are some thoughts…
1. Organizations that espouse Christian beliefs are bad, and should be banned, because they don’t support gay marriage.
2. Organizations that openly espouse Muslim beliefs, like KILLING homosexuals, are OK, and entitled to public support.
3. Jews are evil, and should be killed off.
4. Picking on Christians is easy, because the vast majority of them are non-violent, and pose no real threat. Muslims, on the other hands, have centuries of violence and oppression, including to the present time, and would kill people and blow things up if they don’t get their own way.
Or, these are just typical hypocritical regressives?
Or (and my personal opinion) is this…
Matthew 10:22-23 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name‘s sake
Sometimes, it’s that simple.
