Which prominent Jewish politicians are passing laws that discriminate against homosexuals? Which prominent Muslim politician is calling for killing homosexuals? In THIS country?

Perhaps they are keeping their views to themselves but I'm not hearing it.

I believe conversion therapy is bunk, but they are doing it out of the belief they are helping gay people.
The Stonewall Riots and start of the movement to end outright persecution of them was not that long ago and continues to be a struggle.

cover for islam by liberals.


Liberals require God out of the way to install their socialist society. socialists want to make you believe all rights come from the government not nature/God. governments change all the time, God is a stable reference void of politics and rights cannot be removed by man.


attacks on Christianity in an attempt to equalize both. a religion which beheads and crucifies people today vs one that conducted a crusade in the dark ages.


but only a small fraction of islam are fundamentalists!!!!!


A tiny fraction of such a large number is enough to somehow wiped out the majority of ME Christians along with other non believers. Why? "because the Quoran told me so."

Refer to my earlier post.
To this day I still see comments from Christians who reference the Old Testament and want to kill homosexuals.

“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”

Judaism is very supportive of homosexuals. Islam has had virtually no impact on our culture/laws.
Worthy of a repeat.

Furthermore, that is a significant part of the agenda that drives the Republican Party which in itself is pretty much a fundamentalist Christian party these days.
Give an example of one proposed law by a GOP lawmaker that had any significant support.

Not yet anyway. But you people on the left Embrace Islamic people who would like nothing better than to cut your throat because you are not one of them. Islam is the most intolerant of religions in the world but yet you attack Christianity Christianity is not throwing people off a roof because they are homosexual Christianity is not forcing women to cover up the entire heads except the rise of their women like Islam does but yet you people Embrace Islam. Judaism is about the first testament in the Bible and there's many anti-homosexual references in there as well

Liberals see everything as a dichotomy of a power context of exploited/exploiter. In their view, Muslims are exploited or lack power, whereas Christians have power, so they must side with Muslims. Similarly, in their view, straight people have power while gay people do not. However, there is a hierarchy with Muslims being near the top - just below illegal immigrants.

So, if I can show you a comment from a couple of liberals online somewhere supporting pedophilia, I guess that's proof liberalism wants to legalize child rape.

Why would you be part of the liberal movement if I could find a couple of posts, which seems to be your standard, that liberalism supports pedophilia?

"“While their influence might not be immediate, there is no doubt that within the next 15 years, evangelicals of color will become a more powerful force in the evangelical community as a whole,” says Janelle Wong, American Studies professor at the University of Maryland.

Evangelicals — Christians who focus heavily on salvation through Jesus Christ and the global acceptance of the gospel — are predominantly white and Republican.

About 34 percent of self-identified evangelicals are black, Asian or Latino — and the latter groups are quickly growing, Wong says. She attributes the growth not only to the rising numbers of people of color in the U.S. population overall but also to the “demographic decline” among white evangelicals and the departure of young people from their ranks."
