In an earlier piece I noted the frightening similarities between the Islamic war on faith, family and freedom, and the homosexual war on faith, family and freedom. The attempt to push Islamic sharia law throughout the West is destroying democracy and liberty, but so too is the attempt to force everyone to embrace and promote the militant homosexual agenda.
Thus it is now not even worth bothering to differentiate between the two, since both are totalitarian movements designed to crush all opposition and silence all critics. So here I will simply offer more examples of Islamic sharia in action and homosexual sharia in action.
Let me start with the ugly Big Brother activism of the homosexual lobby. They and their buddies in the courts and the media are doing a great job of smashing freedom and destroying genuine debate. Let me begin with a Christian bakery forced to close down because homosexual militants sued them in court for not making them a cake.
Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer sued Aaron and Melissa Klein of Sweet Cakes Bakery, forcing it to close its doors and won damages which will bankrupt the family. The Bowman-Cryers claimed they felt “mentally raped” in a list of 88 symptoms of emotional distress at being refused a cake. Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer were awarded $135,000 for damages.
A similar case occurred in Iowa where another Christian business was forced to close down by the hate-brigade:
The owners of a Christian family run business is being forced to shut their doors after being charged with discrimination against a homosexual couple. Betty Odgaard and her husband, Richard, have been the owners of Görtz Haus Gallery since 2002, when they purchased a 77-year-old stone church and transformed it into a bistro, flower shop, art gallery and wedding venue. On August 3, 2013, a homosexual couple from Des Moines asked to rent Görtz Haus for their wedding, and because of their Mennonite faith, the Odgaards told the couple they couldn’t host their wedding.
The couple immediately filed a discrimination complaint through the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, and knowing their business was going to be in trouble, the Odgaards ended their wedding business in order to avoid the probability of another complaint and the associated fines and penalties. After leaving the wedding business, Görtz Haus struggled to survive, but the Odgaards felt they had no choice. The risks were simply too great.
And consider this appalling case of homofascism from Boston:
On March 30, a major Harvard-affiliated hospital in Boston, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), expelled a well-respected urologist from its medical staff because he voiced concerns about the unhealthy nature of homosexual behavior and objected to the hospital’s aggressive promotion of “gay pride” activities.
Dr. Paul Church has been a urologist on the BIDMC staff in Boston for nearly 30 years. He is a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty. He has done research on diagnosing prostate and bladder cancer, and has been a frequent volunteer for medical mission projects in Mexico and Africa. He has also spoken before educational and civic groups on the subject of high-risk sexual behaviors.
So telling the truth about the health risks of homosexuality will now get you fired. So much for tolerance, acceptance, inclusion and diversity. So much for medical and scientific truth. Now the only thing that matters is if you don’t hurt the feelings of a homosexual. Truth can be damned as the militants and their agenda get preferential treatment.
Just yesterday I reported on a similar situation in Adelaide where a pamphlet quoting medical journals and AIDS Councils about the health risks of homosexuality was labelled “hate speech” as well: billmuehlenberg.com/2015/06/21/the-homosexual-ruling-elites-complex/
It gets even worse: in this video clip you have a mentally-confused and morally short-changed councillor calling it “social terrorism”! I kid you not: au.news.yahoo.com/sa/video/watch/28519549/marion-council-to-vote-on-gay-pride-flag-s-future/#page1
As to ongoing attempts at ramming Islamic sharia down our throats, consider these two recent cases. The first comes from Washington, D.C.:
A complaint that says crosses at Catholic school are “offensive”, and prevent Muslim prayers, has been filed against Catholic University in Washington, D.C. It is only the latest in an endless series of demands for Sharia Law adherence by Muslims in America.
The complaint to the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights, filed by a leftist professor from rival George Washington University, says there are “too many crosses in every room of Catholic University” which is a “human rights violation that prevents Muslim students from praying there.”
And get a load of this craziness from Northern Ireland. This sort of headline is now getting to be a broken record: “Christian pastor to be charged with HATE CRIME after calling Islam ‘Satanic’.”
The story begins:
A Christian preacher who described Islam as “satanic” and “heathen” is to be prosecuted. Pastor James McConnell triggered controversy when he said he did not trust Muslims during a firebrand sermon at his north Belfast church last year.
State prosecutors have deemed the comments to be “grossly offensive” in law, and have launched a legal action against him. The pastor has since apologised for causing any offence after meeting delegates at the city’s Islamic Centre. The prosecution seems to be based on the fact the pastor’s sermon was streamed online.
Well there you have it folks: five more shocking cases of sharia in action: three from the homosexual tyrants and two from the Muslim activists. There is no end in sight from either camp. Both have vowed to destroy freedom and democracy as they attempt to remake all of society into their image.
This is an all-out war, and it is up to us whether we simply lose all our freedoms, or whether we stand and fight. I know what I am going to do.
