A group of assailants stormed the home of Xulhaz Mannan, a staffer for the U.S. Agency for International Development, stabbing him and a friend to death, police told The Daily Star. Mannan was a senior editor of Roopbaan, the first gay rights magazine in the country.
The government of Bangladesh condemned Monday’s slayings, as well as other killings of secular bloggers in recent months, and blamed it on incitement by the country’s Islamist political opposition.
However, this particular murder is not politically useful to the left because there is no way for it to be used as a cudgel to bully American Christians into submission. So, it’s going to be a big, “So what? It didn’t happen in my country. Who the f–k cares?” to all the people on the left who go into fits of outrage when an American Christian declines to participate in a gay wedding by serving cake or giving up their house. Or, for that matter, when a tranny has to use the bathroom that corresponds to their chromosomes.
