I am in London at the moment and until today the biggest thing on the news here besides football (soccer) was the violence on the part of the Russian fans. Sadly, something else has taken our attention.Stupidity reaches over the pond. First, a little background.
Quran (7:80-84) – “…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” – An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the “rain of stones” on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people’s destruction. (The story is also repeated in suras 27 and29).
Quran (7:81) – “Will ye commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you?” This verse is part of the previous text and it establishes that homosexuality as different from (and much worse than) adultery or other sexual sin. According to the Arabic grammar, homosexuality is called the worst sin, while references elsewhere describe other forms of non-marital sex as being “among great sins.”
Quran (26:165-166) – “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”
Quran (4:16) – “If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone” This is the Yusuf Ali translation. The original Arabic does not use the word “men” and simply says “two from among you.” Yusuf Ali may have added the word “men” because the verse seems to refer to a different set than referred to in the prior verse (explicitly denoted as “your women”). In other words, since 4:15 refers to “your women”, 4:16 is presumably written to and refers to men.
Interestingly, the same rules don’t seem to apply in paradise, where martyrs for the cause of Allah enjoy an orgy of virgins and “perpetual youth” Quran (56:17) (otherwise known as “boys”Quran (52:24)). Quran (76:19) bluntly states, “And immortal boys will circulate among them, when you see them you will count them as scattered pearls.” Technically, the mere presence of boys doesn’t necessarily mean sex, however it is strongly implied from the particular emphasis on the effeminacy, handsomeness and “freshness” of the boys. The female virgins of paradise are also compared to pearls (56:23).
Islam is intolerant of homosexuality. Period.
obama and the left have conveniently papered that axiom over. Over and over and over. obama pals around with an Islamic preacher who asserts that homosexuality is “a despised act, it is haram, it is forbidden in Islam, completely, absolutely.”
And he still is in denial. That denial imperils us all. This is a story of one eff-up after another. Now one politician after another, along with obama, seeks to prove what an effing idiot he is.
The shooter’s father said seeing men kissing inflamed him.
Gary Johnson wants us to do everything humanly possible not to properly identify the evil.
Three times the FBI chose not to take this guy seriously.
Over at Mediaite, Tommy Christopher think it’s a good time to be amusing.
obama? He blames us.
So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.
That’s just disgusting. There’s no other word for it.
I agree with Glenn Reynolds, who says “WHAT’S THIS “WE” SHIT, KEMOSABE?”
obama’s newest BFF’s, the Iranians, persecute gays– as does most of the Muslim world. As Milo Yiannopoulos notes, the left has chosen Islam over gays. It’s dark irony that left wingers say they support gays while they coddle a religion which is utterly intolerant of gays.
It’s called cognitive dissonance.
It’s also called idiocy.
We cannot treat cancer if we cannot call it osteosarcoma or non-Hodgkins lymphoma. They demand different treatment protocols. We cannot combat Islamic terrorism if we cannot identify it properly.
