President Obama made a much-publicized visit to a mosque yesterday in which he praised Islam with such gushing fervor you would have thought Mohammedans invented single-payer health care and the capital gains tax.
What was less publicized is that the leadership of this mosque Obama honored with his presence have a record on gay tolerance that has much more in common with the Westboro Baptist Theater Troupe than the faculty at Wellesley.
Being a homosexual “is an immoral act, it is a shameful act, it is despised act, it is haram, it is forbidden in Islam, completely, absolutely, from the Koran, the Hadith [recorded statements from Islam’s reputed founder, the leader Muhammad) and by consensus of the scholars from the beginning of Islam,” says Imam Yaseen Shaikh, who was hired in to serve as the head of Islamic teaching or Islamic “scholar” for the Islamic Society of Baltimore and its nearby Al-Rahmah school.
Will this matter to the Progressive Gay Left. Of course not. Mohammedans are part of the great Social Democrat Coalition and therefore get a pass on that.
Also, kind of par for the course for people who think the solution to Mohammedan rape gangs is hashtags and YouTube videos. (But college males accused of rape by mentally unstable girls should have their lives destroyed.)
