Terrorists versus homosexuality - who wins?


I was, however, taken by one image in which a demonstrator, concealing his identity with an Arab headdress, is brandishing a placard declaring that “Europe you will pay, your 9/11 is on its way.” Walking beside him is a policeman, turning a conspicuous blind eye to this glorification of, and incitement to, terrorism. The police, it seems, have more important things to do than offend “community relations” with Britain’s burgeoning Muslim population by arresting “peaceful” demonstrators. For instance, they have to keep Britain safe from an outspoken mother of six who dared criticize Britain’s new civil-partnerships act, which gave homosexuals the “right” to adopt children. Lynette Burrows, a devout Christian and a campaigner for family rights, dared to suggest, during a live radio interview, that allowing homosexual “couples” to adopt children would leave the children at increased risk of sexual abuse. As a result of this exercise of her free speech, and her expression of obvious plain common sense, she was visited the following day by a police officer, cautioning her officially for alleged “homophobia.” A spokesman for Scotland Yard explained that racist and homophobic incidents were considered “priority crimes.” “It is all about reassuring the community,” he explained.

So here we see that in the UK it's not ok to say that homosexual adoption is bad, but it is ok to threaten the nation with bloody destruction.

Of course, Mr. Pearce points out what this means:

There is a darkly comic dimension to this whole sad, sorry state of affairs. If, as the “peaceful” Muslims proclaim, Islam is destined to “dominate the world” (or England at any rate), the “freedom” to practice homosexuality will “go to hell,” as will so many of the other freedoms cherished by liberal secularists.

It's so refreshing to get First Things more than once a month.
