A left-wing professor at Wake Forest University is under siege from left-wing students because he wrote an opinion piece stating the truth that Mohammedanism is profoundly, deeply, and fundamentally anti-gay.
Shannon Gilreath, a professor of law and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies wrote the op-ed, “Europe’s Islam problem and U.S. immigration Policy”, for The Washington Blade on January 19, arguing in it that Islam fundamentally clashes with gay rights. “I come from the American Left. I am a feminist. I am a gay rights activist,” he begins. “Consequently, the argument I am about to make for tighter U.S. controls on immigration of Muslims may surprise some readers. It shouldn’t.” Gilreath goes on to claim that “Islam is endemically antithetical to the well-being of gay people,” contending that “If anything approaching this kind of destruction had been unleashed under the banner of any political organization, the Nazis or Klan for examples, the Left would be quick to condemn and short on tolerance for adherents who ask us to believe that they only subscribe to the ideology’s nonlethal tenets,” but that “because this mayhem is perpetrated in the name of religion…the gloves stay on.” “American liberals don’t want to hear this argument,” he explains, “because they share, ironically, with American conservatives a rather unreflective commitment to the defense of religion at all costs.” The article spawned a demonstration on campus by students who claimed that his article was “offensive and overgeneralizing,”
The little bubble these snowflakes live in don’t handle the truth very well. But the professor is wrong about the left’s “defense of religion at all costs.” The left only defends religions other than Christianity. The left wants the Christian faith disparaged in public education and media, its expression banned from the public square, and its practitioners banned from holding public office. The Mohammedans agree with all of this.
