These are the very same maroons who champion the importation of highly intolerant islamic settlers into their country.
‘Bigotry is not dead in Sweden – we still need to talk’
Published: 24 May 2016 06:59 GMT+02:00
Let me ask you a few questions. Is the Earth round? Is slavery immoral? Should women have the vote?
Easy, you say – that’s a “yes” to each.
But the answers were not so simple in previous decades and centuries. Indeed, there are still those who would answer “no” now, in the 21st century.
Bruno Edgarsson, who is head of Växjö diocese’s administrative board, as well as a member of Sweden’s Centre Party, is similarly backward in his thinking.
Last week he described homosexuality as “just a trend,” in response to other priests’ participation in a Gay Pride parade.
“I am definitely against Pride. I think it should be a man and a woman and I can’t reconcile myself with LBGT,” he told local paper Smålänningen.
“I don’t know why they choose to become homosexuals, but I believe it has become a trend among young people, and then it isn’t easy to remove yourself from it.”
It was a shocking thing to say. Not just because Edgarsson is demonstrably wrong. But also because it was said here, in Sweden, one of the most socially progressive countries on the planet.
NOTE: There’s a major difference between someone who rejects a certain lifestyle, but maintains a ”live and let live” attitude, with those who would toss the offender off a high building if the law of land allowed it. Notice that not once did the article mention Islam and Muslims. One day they will be forced to.
