Juicy Ecumenism, the blog of the Institute on Religion & Democracy, published, “‘Homophobia’ and ‘Islamophobia’: Totalitarian Threats Foreign and Domestic,” this past week and adds to what SCI and FDI (along with others) have already identified as a global threat.
Abroad, however, individuals have also faced legal repercussions for opposition to LGBT behavior. Canada, for example, has witnessed a host of legal actions against opposition, sometimes merely spoken, to SSM since this became law in 2005. Letters against homosexuality in the United Kingdom, meanwhile, have brought police visits and hate speech law warnings. Swedish Pastor Åke Green also endured a 2004 hate speech conviction due to his pulpit denouncement of homosexuality before the Swedish Supreme Court overturned his sentence in 2005. . . .
That LGBT and militant Muslims, two mutually opposed groups given orthodox Islam’s lethal condemnation of homosexuality, evince sociopolitical parallels is ironic, yet not without precedent. Communists and Nazis pursued similar yet opposed political paths while first destroying the mutually hated democracy of Weimar Germany and then dividing up Europe in the 1939 Hitler-Stalin pact. Like the Communists and Nazis, LGBT and militant Muslims are not without their areas of mutual benefit. The redefinition of marriage to accommodate homosexuals, for example, can pave the way for Islamic polygamy.”And then The Los Angeles Times covered the publication of the memoir of former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. It included this passage which cited an excerpt of Gates’s book:
Gates writes that, unlike Bush, Obama lacked “passion, especially when it came to the two wars.”
“I worked for Obama longer than Bush and I never saw his eyes well up,” Gates writes. “The only military matter, apart from leaks, about which I ever sensed deep passion on his part was ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ the law prohibiting gays from serving openly in the military that Obama successfully pushed to repeal.”The excerpted quote aligns with other official Executive branch statements and policies.
For example, the Department of Defense has officially stated that sodomy and other so-called diversity initiatives are a priority (if not the top priority) through press releases such as, “Wright: Diversity Contributes to DOD’s Success.”
Expect sodomy to continue driving global conflict and dominating the future.
