Gun sales to gays are going through the roof. Maybe they will get the message. Maybe they will back down off of their aggressive agenda before it’s too late. Or will they push it until they have no friends left?
Now, I ask my gay friends, do you really think it’s all about the guns? Are you going to persist in shoving your lifestyle in Christian and non-secular faces, as you have been aggressively doing for the last 20 years?
“The mandate that homosexuals be killed is not from ISIS or al-Qaeda. It is from sharia — which draws on Muslim scripture,” Andy McCarthy reminds us in the excellent article at the link below.
Former Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York Andrew C McCarthy continues, “an English version of the classic sharia manual Reliance of the Traveller has been endorsed by scholars of al-Azhar University, the seat of Sunni Islamic learning since the tenth century; by the International Institute of Islamic Thought, a Muslim Brotherhood think tank that is influential in Washington; and by other influential Islamic governments and commentators. Here is its teaching on homosexuality, found in the chapter on “Enormities” — the most grave offenses:
Sec. p17.0: SODOMY AND LESBIANISM
Sec. p17.1: In more than one place in the Holy Koran, Allah recounts to us the story of Lot’s people, and how He destroyed them for their wicked practice. There is consensus among both Muslims and the followers of all other religions that sodomy is an enormity. It is even viler and uglier than adultery [AM: which is punished brutally, including by death].
Sec. p17.2: Allah Most High says: “Do you approach the males of humanity, leaving the wives Allah has created for you? But you are a people who transgress” (Koran 26:165-66).
Sec. p17.3: The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:
1. “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”
2. “May Allah curse him who does what Lot’s people did.”
3. “Lesbianism by women is adultery between them.”
As I noted many times, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi may be Sunni Islam’s most influential living sharia jurist. Here, as reported by the Middle East Forum, is Qaradawi’s teaching on homosexuality:
We must be aware that in regulating the sexual drive Islam has prohibited not only illicit sexual relations and all what leads to them, but also the sexual deviation known as homosexuality. This perverted act is a reversal of the natural order, a corruption of man’s sexuality, and a crime against the rights of females. (The same applies equally to the case of lesbianism.)”
“Since the American invasion of Iraq in 2003, there has been no shortage of praise for Ayatollah Ali Sistani, whom the Bush administration frequently lauded as a “moderate” and a supporter of “democracy.” (We critics countered that Sistani is a fundamentalist sharia-supremacist who supported “democracy” — meaning popular vote — in a Muslim-majority society because that was the most direct, efficient way to impose sharia.) Sistani is as influential a Shiite sharia authority as there is. As I have previously recounted, when asked, “What is [Islam’s] judgment on sodomy and lesbianism?” Sistani replied: “Forbidden. Those involved in the act should be punished. In fact, sodomites should be killed in the worst manner possible.””
“Yup, let it sink in: “killed in the worst manner possible.””
“Note, again, that Omar Mateen is the American-born son of immigrants from Afghanistan, where homosexuality may also be punished by death — notwithstanding American nation-building efforts there for the last 15 years.”
Thanks to Andrew McCarthy for all of the quotes.
Today, “a noted gay, libertarian, gun rights advocate Tom G. Palmer, calling for LGBT citizens to arm themselves” writes:
“Let’s get one thing very clear. Gun control advocates disarmed the victims at that night club. Florida law states unequivocally that even a concealed carry permit “does not authorize any person to openly carry a handgun or carry a concealed weapon or firearm into any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, which portion of the establishment is primarily devoted to such purpose.”
Now, I ask my gay friends again, do you really think it’s all about the guns? Are you going to persist in pushing your lifestyle on others?
