On Orlando.Okay, social justice warriors. Here's where we currently stand.
A man can walk into a nightclub, shout "Allah ackbar" and shoot the place up and all you're worried about is where to place the blame so that it doesn't fall on jihadi shoulders.
Fifty people die and you want to blame guns, or christians, or right wing nut jobs rather than a jihadi demonstrating his allegiance to Allah and the umma as personified by the Islamic State.
His father says that it was nothing to do with religion, but his son did actually see two men kissing and that upset him. You're probably okay with this victim blaming. After all, how often to you stop to consider those gays that are thrown off buildings in Syria just for being.... gay? That's right, you don't. You're too busy waving your "Queers For Palestine" banner around. You've got to keep your Hierarchy of Oppression in order.
You want to turn the discussion straight away to gun laws, never mind the bodies cooling on the floor of the club. Never mind that the shooter was a registered security worker and had access to guns. He was on the FBI watch list. Heck, even in Australia young men can get their hands on guns to use on innocent bystanders. But no, let's talk about guns.
The bottom line is that thanks to the endless scolding by SJWs and mealy-mouthed wowsers, political correctness has muzzled far too many and occluded the vision of many more.
Nobody really wants to look at the root causes, because they might have to admit that maybe those bigoted islamophobes are correct. Maybe there is something about islam that leads those who follow it to look at things just a bit differently to the rest of us.
Something like, you know, considering homosexuality as being like alcoholism. Forbidden in islam, but you still have to have compassion for them.
MOHAMAD ABDALLA: Precisely. What we have to understand is that homosexuality is seen as a sin. It does not take a person out of the fold. So it doesn’t become out of the fold of Islam. It is like in Islamic tradition it is very much like alcoholism, if you like. And so people like this should not be seen as outside of the fold. Compassion should be showed toward them. But the culture we have - many Muslims have grown up in cultures that does not tolerate that behaviour. And so we have to have a compassionate approach. We have to approach them...
Note the silence that greets his pronouncement in the video and ponder wisely. "People like this should not be seen outside of the fold." He is talking of gay muslims. He's already waffled about how the islamic teaching is applicable to muslims only (it's not, it's for the whole of the world), and doesn't expand upon what islamic teaching says should be done about homosexuals.
Here, let the Reliance of the Traveller help you:
o12.0 THE PENALTY FOR FORNICATION OR SODOMY
O12.1 The legal penalty is obligatorily imposed upon anyone who fornicates or commits sodomy (A: provided it is legally established) when they:
(a) have reached puberty;
(b) are sane;
(c) and commit the act voluntarily;
no matter whether the person is a Muslim, non-Muslim subject of the Islamic state, or someone who has left Islam.
And what is the penalty (also from the Reliance)?
p17.0 Sodomy and Lesbian persuasion
p17.1 In more than one place in the Holy Koran, Allah tells the tale of the people of Lot, and how he destroyed them because of their perverted practices. There is agreement amongst both Muslims and the followers of other religions that the practice of sodomy is an abomination. It is even more abominable than adultery.
p17.2 Allah, He who is Most High, says :
“"Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males,
"And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing [all limits]!"
p17.3 The Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and Peace be upon Him) has said:
(1) “Kill the sodomites and those who consent to submit.”
(2) “May Allah damn to perdition those who do what Lot’s people did”
(3) “Lesbian practice by women is adultery amongst them.”
Remind me again why Queers for Palestine is a thing, and take the blinkers off your own eyes. Sure you won't like what you see - especially in the mirror - but at least it will be honest for a change.
Ah, no, but that won't happen. It's too easy to point at soft targets like Christians and Jews and sheeple who won't fight back, who do turn the other cheek.
Not like the muslims. We all know that when they threaten to behead someone there's a very real possibility that they'll attempt to do so.
Deep down, where nobody can see you, you know that those mean, bigoted islamophobes are right but you can't admit it to yourself.
So screw you, social justice warriors.
