In 2015 America a remnant of faithful Christian pastors, not imams, are being targeted by gay-activists. No Christian pastor I know has ever proclaimed or financially supported the beheading of anyone, let alone gays.
The “Gay Mafia,” as Bill Maher calls them, are like fools flouting their own folly. They impose standards (that they don’t follow) solely on Christians through discriminatory legal measures— but completely ignore imams who advocate their death.
No gays are protesting, subpoenaing, or demanding that Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) be arrested, tried, or deported. He asserts:
“Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption… No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.
“There are many reasons why it is forbidden in Islam. Homosexuality is dangerous for the health of the individuals and for the society. It is a main cause of one of the most harmful and fatal diseases … It is the most un-natural way of life. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of family life.”
Gay activists aren’t protesting ISNA, an organization directly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, and recently lauded by former president Jimmy Carter.
Muslims who follow the Qur’an understand its words as literal, from Allah. The Qur’an states that those who act on same-sex attraction and behavior make a “god (ilah) of there own lusts,” reject Allah’s will, and practice “wickedness” (Qur’an 26.165-166; 27.055; 29.028-29).
There is no such thing as a gay Muslim. Nor is there any public acceptance for the gay lifestyle in any Muslim majority country—or in any Muslim neighborhood or no-go zone in a Muslim minority country.
According to Shar’ia law, the sodomizer and the sodomized both deserve death. Likewise, the rules and punishment for zina (adultery) are applied to lesbians—death for married, lashes for unmarried.
It is common knowledge throughout the Muslim world that no one can be gay and follow Allah. It is also widely acknowledged that the “people of the book,” Jews and Christians—whose laws actually seek to safeguard human rights—must be killed.
Yet, no gays are protesting, subpoenaing, or asserting the arrest, for example of Imam Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi of Memphis, Tenn. who publicly asserts: “Jews and Christians are filthy, their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims.”
Anyone who believes they are immune from the outworking of Islamic ideology does not understand it. Qadhi asserts, according to the Qur’an, everyone—not only in America—but worldwide, “must bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah” and because of this “principle of monotheism … the prophet has been commanded to do jihad.”
Likewise, Brooklyn N.Y. Imam Tareq Yousef Al-Masri recently declared at the Oulel-Albab mosque, “We, the Muslims … the Muslims of the religious sector are time bombs.”
These imams are not alone.
According to the Mapping Sharia Project, 51 percent of mosques in America had “texts that either advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Shari’a-based political order or advocated violent jihad; another 30 percent had texts that were moderately supportive of violence.” Distribution of anti-Western literature, videos, and textbooks is documented, as are the Islamic centers that operate as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Imams advocacy for extermination of non-Muslims has existed in America for decades, yet these imams have not been deported, let alone investigated by the IRS or any other government organization for their alleged constitutional violations.
In 1999, Naqshbandi Sufi Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani testified to the State Department that eighty percent of mosques in America had “extremist leaders.” In 2006, Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom exposed widespread dissemination of hate ideology in literature and sermons by mosques nationwide. And in 2007, during the Holy Land Foundation trial, perhaps one of the most important documents discovered—the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto—revealed its “General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” to destroy it from within.
Gays’ civil rights, human rights, or even lives for that matter, are irrelevant to imams. If gays want to live, they should consider redirecting their vitriol toward imams who preach their death, and toward a silent—yet active—political and legal system perpetuating and enabling treasonous hate speech to their detriment.
