The left was already up in arms over the Hobby Lobby ruling and now the potential of Christians being able to follow their religion has proved a surprising reaction from the LGBT community:
Several major gay rights groups withdrew support Tuesday for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would bolster gay and transgender rights in the workplace, saying they fear that broad religious exemptions included in the current bill might compel private companies to begin citing objections similar to those that prevailed in a U.S. Supreme Court case last week.
They have been vocal about denouncing religious objections to co-operation with Gay Marriage. Strangely enough, Pam Geller notes that this vocal outrage doesn’t extend to other actions done in the name of religion:
Ali Muhammad Brown was charged with executing two gay men in Seattle. Brown was previously prosecuted federally following an FBI probe into an Islamic group suspected of supporting jihadists overseas.
Mind you there have been some news coverage for this Seattle PI
Police contend Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young met Brown outside a Capitol Hill club after Said contacted Brown through an online search for sex partners. Brown is alleged to have left with both men and killed them minutes later using his girlfriend’s handgun.
the Seattle times:
Police say Brown, Said and Anderson-Young drove to Anderson-Young’s house, where Brown pulled a gun and killed the two men then drove off in Said’s car. It was later found abandoned in South Seattle.
Police said they linked Brown to the slayings after finding his fingerprints and three spent 9mm shell casings inside Said’s car. The mother of Brown’s children told police that her 9mm semiautomatic handgun was missing; she said Brown had access to the gun, charges said.
Oddly none of those stories talk about why were these men targeted:
sources tell Q13 FOX News that Brown underwent jihadist training in California in April and they believe the two men were attacked simply because their sexual orientation offended what police say are Brown’s radical Muslim beliefs.
If you are hearing about this for the first time it’s likely because national gay groups don’t seem to think that radical Muslim beliefs that provoke murder are as dangerous as Christian belief that forbids us to bake a cake for a gay marriage.
Pam Geller notes this isn’t the first time that anti-gay murder has come up there:
Seattle has a problem. They won’t run our ads highlighting Muslim oppression of gays, despite this savage reality. If you recall, a devout Muslim set fire to a packed Seattle gay bar during a New Year’s celebration shortly after midnight on January 1. Seattle’s largest and longest-running gay nightclub was doused in gasoline and set aflame by Musab Masmari. He was arrested on his way to the airport.
Apparently not, if the religious extremist is named Musab Musmari, who police say “poured gasoline on a carpeted stairway and set it ablaze” inside Seattle’s “popular gay nightclub” Neighbours on New Year’s Eve, when 750 people were inside the club.
And now Pam does the same
Where are the left-wing, the gay and LGBT organizations denouncing the Islamic texts that inspire such mayhem and murder of gays? Where is that fierce gay leadership condemning Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia? The silence is deafening.
They were loud and proud against our ads. They were holding press conferences condemning me. Gay organizations in America say nothing, but loudly condemned my ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the sharia. Why haven’t we heard from this City Council, or this Human Rights Commission, SFHRC head Theresa Sparks, but most especially the enemedia that scrubs their coverage of motive? They called our ads hate and issued a resolution condemning our AFDI ad campaign (the first of its kind) against our organization for merely quoting Muslim political leaders, spiritual leaders and cultural voices in the Muslim community who call for the torture and death of gay people.
The answer is simple, the incentive system isn’t there. Black Masses at harvard produce Eucharistic Processions, Obamacare mandates against religious groups produce lawsuits, bans against Pam’s ads produce TV clips and lawsuits.
I’ll give Glenn Reynolds the last word with the warning he has given often:
May our political class take joy in the incentive system they are creating.
