Persecution of Gays in Eurabia Worsens

According to Bruce Bawer:

Never mind that Europe, far from oppressing Muslims, offers personal freedoms and welfare-state benefits far beyond those available in any Muslim country. Never mind that few if any Europeans – certainly not gay people – are doing any Muslim-bashing. Never mind that Hindu and Buddhist immigrants, or immigrants from South America or China, feel no compulsion to react violently against their “oppression.” No, assaults by Muslims always have to be construed as defensive – as expressions not of power but of weakness, not of aggression but of helplessness. To suggest that the culprits, far from being fragile, sensitive flowers who’ve been pushed over the line by something we did, are in fact bullies driven by an overweening sense of superiority and a deep-seated malice – both of which they’ve been carefully taught at home, at school, and, yes, in the mosque – is verboten.

Being gay – and European – himself, Bawer should know.

I’m not sure if the cultural elites of Europe have always been naive or it’s a recent development. However given that Pym Fortuyn’s murderer only got 18 years it’s only a matter of time before Europe, like Iran, has no homosexuals.

    Well—- I definitely agree with you that such multiculturalism is not a danger to freedom.

    I believe that people have and should have a right to their religious beliefs—but that right should not extend to a right to break the law in the name of religion. The law must still be the law.

    The moment the government takes up a doctrine that allows otherwise-illegal actions to be legal when done in the name of religion – the doors to such oppression are opened. And the only way to close those doors is to close them, seal them, and shut them.

    Oops—there is a typo here.

    When I typed “is not a danger” I meant “is a danger”.

    Two groups I view as “canaries in a coalmine” that test for a healthy society: Gays & Jews.
    The persecution of the latter has been on the rise over the past decade; now we’re beginning to see the persecution of the former.

    As Glenn Reynolds put it in his post “First, they came for the gays.” “They” need to be stopped – but the Europeans themselves have to do this. America shouldn’t save them from this growing threat. They must do this for their own health and well-being.
