Another example of the ‘Religion of Peace’. And it’s justified for THIS reason.
Here’s what happens when ‘protected groups’ clash… one is more justified than the other.
Move over, LGBT, it looks like the Islam is the new cause célèbre.
In the Netherlands, a taxpayer funded complaint hotline said that it was ok for Muslims to issue death threats to gays because it’s their ‘religious belief’.
Dutch Politicians are calling for an immediate inquiry and public funding to be cut from the organization.
The disgraceful stance came to light when a member of the public complained about death threats posted to an online forum which called for homosexuals to be “burned, decapitated and slaughtered”…
…According to Dutch media advisors from the anti-discrimination bureau MiND said that, while homophobic abuse was usually a crime, it was justifiable if you were Muslim due to laws on freedom of religious expression.
They argued that the Koran says it is acceptable to kill people for being homosexual, and so death threats towards gay people from Muslims could not be discriminatory.
In a jaw-dropping email explaining why they could not take up the complaint, they wrote: “The remarks must be seen in the context of religious beliefs in Islam, which juridically takes away the insulting character.”
They concluded that the remarks were made in “the context of a public debate about how to interpret the Quran” and added that “some Muslims understand from the Quran that gays should be killed”.
And they went on: “In the context of religious expression that exists in the Netherlands there is a large degree of freedom of expression. In addition, the expressions are used in the context of the public debate (how to interpret the Koran), which also removes the offending character.”
The death threats had been made in the comments section for an article about a Dutch-Moroccan gay society, which had been posted to an online platform for Holland’s large Moroccan community.
The revelation that they were so easily brushed aside by the anti-discrimination hotline will fuel an intense debate in the Netherlands over freedom of expression.

Well, now we know who the left loves the most.
It used to be:
But now, not so much.
Somewhere there was a switch to this:
Yes, Islam is the new black as evidenced here:
Where are all the Progressives?
We’re talking about the Netherlands, a country the leftists go on about for their ‘progressive’ policies.
Is this one of them?
The same hotline would probably come down hard on a Christian bakery refusing to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple.
Geert Wilders, the controversial Dutch politician who is currently on trial for hate speech because he said that there are too many Morroccans in Holland.
Watch what he has to say here:
That guy makes sense!
What do you think?
Has the left gone so far to promote the narrative that Islam is a ‘Religion of Peace’ that they don’t even recognize violent speech when it is coming from Muslims?
