* Author’s note. I wrote this last year but after what happened in Orlando last night … it deserves to be ‘re-cycled.’
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why gays rail against Christians while saying jack-squat against Islam.
Look, I get why Obama skips slamming Islam. He grew up a Muslim. He’s got quite the Muslim name. And … despite all of his Jesus talk and twenty-years of being under the tutelage of Reverend “Goddam America” Jeremiah Wright’s discipleship, everything he says and does screams he’s way chummier with Mohammed than Jesus.
So … I get Obama’s reticence to rebuke the Religion Of Perpetual Rage — but what about the gay constituency?
Why so silent?
Why are you terrified of taking on the real “religious” threat to your liberty and prefer to appear to be hardcore by beating on a non-threatening soft target like an evangelical?
I mean, c’mon folks. Even the dullest among you have to concede that Christians represent zero material threat to your life/freedoms and thus your focus on them is about as ill-fitting as a small, A-cup bustier on Oprah.
Christianity doesn’t promote violent jihad. Christianity doesn’t auger for Neil Patrick Harris’ death. Christianity doesn’t cheerlead for the slaughter of Jews. Christians don’t regard the unbaptized in their midst as unenlightened mongrels that must bow to the Golden Rule or be killed. And Christians don’t cheer en masse when cartoonists are slaughtered for drawing cheeky cartoons about Jesus.
But Islam does.
For your information, here’s the worst thing a Church Lady wishes on you: If Church Lady had it her way, you’d be a repentant nice boy, wearing a Christian t-shirt, sitting on the front pew every Sunday singing Oh, The Blood Of Jesus, and listening To Joyce Meyers on iTunes; and if not, well, so be it, they’ll still love you anyway.
Islam … eh … not so much.
No, if Achmed had it his way, because of your penchants, beliefs or lack thereof, you’d be subjugated or slaughtered. If you don’t believe me, watch international news every now and then and/or read the Koran. It’s quite different than Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Like in way different.
Another reason, I suppose, that the gay community hasn’t gotten too pissy with Islam is that the full force of its fascism hasn’t hit our shores …yet. But it has Western Europe’s and it might do you some good, from an ongoing freedom standpoint, to look across the pond and see what multi-cultural yumminess has yielded up for our dull euro-bros – and do the opposite. In Europe, you can actually go to jail for mocking Islam or burning a Koran, but you can talk crap about Christ and BBQ a Bible all day long over there.
In addition, it’s just a matter of time, with Europe’s diminishing birthrate and thinning of skin, before they’re Islam’s prison bitch, mop head wig and all girlfriend.
Therefore, if you truly love yourself and love your liberty, you need to fight Islam tooth, fang and claw because if Islam ever solidly takes root here in the USA, we all can kiss our freedoms goodbye.
