Liberals, Susan Fleetwood writes,
. . . seem to have an overwhelming tendency to downplay Islamic abuses towards women (as well as towards gays) under the guise of multiculturalism. Don’t believe me? Well, then I suggest that you read the column by liberal Boston Globecolumnist Susan Jacoby where she asks the question, “Why are liberals excusing religious abuses on grounds of cultural relativism?”
Fleetwood goes on to compare how one conservative blogger and another left-of-center blogger bold certain passages in a section from Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s writings in her New York Times column about the Egyptian revolution. The liberal “found Ms. Ali’s supposed ‘intolerance’ to be the most bothersome part of that passage, whereas the rest of us find the whole stoning of women and beating of gays to the most troublesome part.”
Read the whole thing.
Once again, we see that conservatives seem more aware of and concerned about the abuses gay people suffer in oppressive, Islamacist regimes.
