Why is it that the LGBT community never challenges Islam, but actually defends it, even after Sunday’s massacre? While Islam’s condemnation of LGBT people is in the strongest of terms — no mosque will allow a gay marriage on its premises, no imam will ever officiate a gay marriage — the reaction of the LGBT community is often a collective yawn. The penalty for engaging in homosexuality in Islam is not condemnation, or a refusal to bake a cake, but rather death in the most painful way possible. This is what true Islam looks like — and it’s not pretty.
It’s time for a wake-up call to Mr. Lemon and others of his ilk. Omar Mateen was a Muslim. He followed the directives of Sharia to the letter. Not only did he kill homosexuals, but he did it in the manner Mohammed required: long, arduously, torturously. And while there are a number of different strains of Islam, many which publicly eschew violence, there is only one Sharia. These ancient laws that draw upon Islamic scripture have not changed. Nor has the violence contained within.
Mateen was not observing ISIS or al Qaeda directives when he murdered 49 people. He was exercising his duties as a Sharia-compliant Muslim. One can speculate about his reasoning in committing this horrific act, and my suspicion is that he was seeking absolution from a life that would be viewed by Islamic adherents as sinful. His only path to redemption was in carnage. That is the true nature of Islam — the true nature which our president refuses to acknowledge. We continue, instead, on a course of political correctness, quite literally bowing in humility for even thinking that perhaps the problem lies within Islam itself.
Americans have bought the lie that we somehow must bow at the feet of those who wish to kill us. President George Bush did it a mere six days after this country was brought to its knees on 9/11. He prostrated himself at the local mosque and participated in a prayer service of a faith and an ideology which wants nothing less than our complete and utter destruction.
Now Lemon, the U.S. press, and gay rights groups throughout the country are bowing as well to the god of Islam. The “facts” as they see them have no basis in reality. The press, law enforcement, and the FBI continue the narrative that Mateen could not have perpetrated such an act without holding membership in ISIS, al Qaeda, or another militant group. They roll out imams, CAIR representatives, and the president himself to say that this was merely an act of hate that happened in a vacuum; that perhaps he was mentally ill; perhaps he was having a bad day; perhaps if he hadn’t been allowed to purchase guns … The nonsense goes on and on.
Mohammed said to kill homosexuals with no exceptions. “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.” How is this unclear?
It isn’t. It’s clear as day, clear as glass, clear as a bell. In fact, it’s so obvious only a liberal-fascist supergenius could possibly be so stupid as to fail to see it. And I strongly suspect that with a good many of them, it’s not so much that they can’t see it, as that they refuse to, because it’s too inconvenient to all the other silly shibboleths to which they’re so strongly attached.
