The sign could very well read:

They throw people like him off of cliffs.
I wonder if the insurance company covering the building housing this multi-faith experiment, has drastically increased it premiums for the Buddhist clients that own it?
A gay liberal Frenchman exploring his open mindedness and non-bigotry converts to Islam, without any real clue as to what he’s stepping into. Remember the Australian convert that was beaten up by his fellow coreligionists for his drinking? (he didn’t know anything about the ”new restrictions” on his life style).
Well just think what the shabaab will do to this guy if they ever get wind about what he is, and up to, and where.

Muslims reject the Western enlightenment and any other enlightenment others try to persuade them to take up. They know where it leads, and will reject it.
POPPING THE MARKS
Not a week of my life goes by without me receiving a message from either a gay Muslim seeking reconciliation between faith, heart, and body, or a gay non-Muslim who is considering converting to Islam, but wonders whether Islam can ever allow a place for him or her. There are a few approaches that one could take to answer these questions, and I’m not really qualified to employ any of them, but here we go.
First, a basic historical argument: Islam is what Muslims do. If we look at Islam as a human tradition with its history and contexts anchored to this planet, rather than something that floats above humanity as an untouched, unchanging essence, then the answer is yes: Islam can have a place for queer Muslims, because queer Muslims have always existed. We have significant traditions of poetry and mysticism in which homoerotic desire is fused with Islamic spirituality. These traditions might not satisfy anyone who cares about Islamic legal tradition, but a historical approach also undermines assumptions about the absoluteness of Islamic law, showing the law to be an ongoing process of human interpretation. Anyway, founding fathers of Islamic law as we have it today acknowledged that same-sex desire was natural, while maintaining that the associated actions were illegal. Abu Hanifa, eponym of the Hanafi school, would deliberately have a handsome male student sit in such a way that he could not look at the student directly, lest his eyes betray him.
We could name-drop Sufi saints and poets from various times and places who violated norms of gender and sexuality on one level or another, and this might do some good towards a useable queer-positive Islamic history, but proving a diversity of beliefs and practices isn’t going to answer the Muslims who need God’s words to settle all disputes with clear verdicts. If you want the Qur’an to really say something, I don’t know what to tell you; I can’t pick apart verses of the Qur’an to reveal the hidden intentions of a transcendent Author. People on both sides of the issue try to do that, but they often see what they want to see.
But check out the comment to the article which lays to rest the silly notion of ”reform” and “Islam is what you want to make it.” Read it under the fold.
This poor kid has been brainwashed by his lesbo moms, he never had a chance since the day he may have said one thing or an other that didn’t fit in a masculine context. This is where we have headed. In the screwed up world we now live in, if this were a case of a normal straight couple taking their son to see a shrink over his sexuality, they would be prosecuted for child abuse. Since this is a highly protected status, gay parenting, their actions are ‘celebrated’. really really sicko. KGS
NOTE: Hey, if they had the foresight, they could have had the mohel remove more than just the foreskin at the brit milah!
The lesbian parents of an 11-year-old boy who is undergoing the process of becoming a girl last night defended the decision, claiming it was better for a child to have a sex change when young.
Thomas Lobel, who now calls himself Tammy, is undergoing controversial hormone blocking treatment in Berkeley, California to stop him going through puberty as a boy.
But Pauline Moreno and Debra Lobel warn children with gender identity disorder forced to postpone transitioning could face a higher risk of suicide.
Israel protects its minorities as do other Western democracies, it’s only within the Muslim world homosexuals are prosecuted and murdered for practicing their lifestyle. So why is the Gay Community sponsoring a faux ‘aid flotilla’ to the Gaza Strip that’s not experiencing a humanitarian crisis, and is seeking weapons to use in killing more Jews?
Apparently ideology trumps fact, that these same homosexuals helping the Hamas to break the legal weapons blockade imposed upon Gaza, would be murdered on sight if they strolled through Gaza City while walking hand in hand. Just saying. KGS

The LGBT communities of the world are now confronted with a strange fusion of homophobic radical Islamists and extreme left-wing groups.
In recent weeks, the anti-Israeli groups Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QAIA) and Siegebusters have taken shots at the one Middle Eastern country that respects the rights of its LGBT community. As 100,000 people took part in the annual Gay Pride Parade in Tel Aviv, QAIA stoked hatred of the Jewish state at similar parades in Brooklyn and Queens. They are slated to march in the jumbo Pride Parade in Manhattan on June 26.
Meanwhile, Siegebusters — whose membership appears to overlap with QAIA’s –– are raising funds to sponsor a flotilla to violate Israel’s legal naval blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
The alliance between Hamas and Siege Busters/ QAIA is unsettling. Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahar has said, “You in the West do not live like human beings. You do not even live like animals. You accept homosexuality. And now you criticize us?”
Both the European Union and the United States have designated Hamas a terrorist organization because it showers Israel’s southern cities with rockets and calls for the obliteration of the Jewish state. The purpose of the naval blockade is to prevent weapons and rocket smuggling into Gaza.
NOTE: Thanks to Vlad for the heads up on this one.
In this context I hope the title makes sense. Blazing Cat Fur was kind enough to send me a link to their site of an article about how at the last moment, ‘Queers Against Israeli Apartheid’ is going to be allowed to march in this years ‘Gay Pride’ festival.
