The plot continues to thicken.
While liberals deflecting the true cause of the Orlanda attack were quick to blame it on homophobia, they failed to consider the source of those tendencies. They should know that the Quran has quite a few harsh punishments for homosexuality.
The Orlando massacre was only un-Islamic in the sense that the Quran prescribes being tossed from a building and stoning as the punishments for homosexuality.
To no surprise, the shooter had attended a mosque which made this very clear.
On March 29, 2016, Farrokh Sekaleshfar — a British-born medical doctor and Shi’a Muslim scholar — was invited to speak at the Husseini Islamic Center just outside Orlando, Florida.
His sermon, “How to deal with the phenomenon of homosexuality,” at the Sanford-based center, happened behind closed doors, but it alarmed local gay and lesbian leaders. Only three years before, in another U.S. speaking engagement, the scholar and sheikh had described in characteristically sotto voce what it meant to do the compassionate thing for gay people:
“Death is the sentence. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about this. Death is the sentence.”
He continued: “We have to have that compassion for people. With homosexuals, it’s the same. Out of compassion, let’s get rid of them now.”
Now that his wish has been fulfilled – and his comments have received even more public attention, he’s backtracking.
Oh – so it’s only wrong because he didn’t carry out this horrific tragedy in a Muslim country.
I guess it’s totally OK then.
