During a conference led by leftist darling Linda Sarsour in Chicago, a pro-LGBT group excitedly arrived to hear the anti-Trump speaker spew her lies. However, as soon as they arrived at the convention, they were greeted by a brutal dose of reality.
Despite the left claiming to champion civil rights for fringe social groups, all of the minority interests are quickly sacrificed to Islam’s political push for the Islamization of the West. Now that the tiny Muslim minority is growing in strength and number, these groups are discovering that the liberal love is merely a photo op for the real agenda — creeping Sharia law.
When 2017’s Islamic Society of North America convention was scheduled to take place in Chicago with Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour headlining as speaker, pro-LGBTQ group Muslims for Progressive Values donned their flamboyant hijabs, flexed their gay pride, and headed to the Democratic paradise. However, as soon as they arrived to hear self-proclaimed LGBT ally Sarsour give her address, they were removed from the event because their homosexual stance is vehemently rejected and brutally punished in Islam.
The American Spectator reports that the group, which includes Muslim queers and feminists along with their liberal supporters, was barred from conference seating after event coordinators discovered their pamphlets advocating LGBT and women’s equality in Islam. The group was then forced to close up their information booth and members were escorted out by ISNA staff.
“We’re really sick and tired of the hypocrisy of them (ISNA) claiming to be LGBT allies,” said Ani Zonneveld, founder and president of Muslims for Progressive Values, a faith-based human rights organization founded in 2007. “They’re only an ally when the camera is on.”
Frank Parmir, a Muslim convert and organizer with MPV’s Columbus chapter, and Michael Toumayan, the Human Rights Campaign’s religion and faith program manager, confirmed that a Muslim administrator dressed in “Salafi garb” preached to them that homosexuality is considered a serious sin in Islam. The man explained that “to be a ‘real Muslim,’ one must assert that homosexuality is a sin,” Parmir quoted.
Parmir said that all MPV members were forced out by “a group of men in suits,” including ISNA Conventions, Conferences, and Special Projets Director Basharat Saleem, who told them that their values weren’t compatible with Islam.
“He wasn’t sure that they could allow us to stay because of some of the literature and some of the positions we were advocating,” Parmir said. “They would have to think about it and get back to us…They were okay with HRC’s advocacy for gay rights. They were not okay with MPV’s advocacy that gays should find unrepentant inclusion with the Muslim community and that women should be given equality.”
Soon after their expulsion from the event, MPV published a statement condemning ISNA for their “hypocrisy.”
“This incident not only puts the spotlight on ISNA and its member mosques’ true policy toward LGBTQ Muslims but also their discriminatory and intolerant version of Islam as a whole,” the statement concluded.
Neither Sarsour nor ISNA responded to inquiries regarding the group’s removal from the convention.
Of course, ignorant liberals who still believe their values are compatible with Islam are shamelessly defending both Sharia law and the LGBTQ lifestyle. Ironically shilling for the same ideology that seeks to destroy him, Independent columnist and liberal Muslim queer Amrou Al-Kadhi alleges that the negative mentality of homosexuality in Islam is merely caused by a “cultural association” instead of “anything to do with Islamic scripture,” although he conveniently neglects any context. Unfortunately, it may come as quite a shock when he reads the Quran and hadith, as Muhammad himself explicitly condemned homosexuals to death.
Quran (4:16) – Allah prescribes punishment for homosexuals
Quran (7:80-84) – Allah punished homosexuals with fire and brimstone
Quran (7:81) – homosexuality is an abomination
Quran (26:165-166) – homosexuals are sinners
Abu Dawud (4462) – execute homosexuals
Abu Dawud (4448) – the penalty for homosexuality is stoning
Sahih Bukhari (72:774) – the prophet Muhammad hated transgenders and cross-dressers
It’s no secret that Islam is incompatible with liberalism, especially the LGBT community. The prophet and his successors proved this by slaughtering such individuals for their “sins.” No matter how much the left propagates that Islam is peaceful and accepting of their values, in the end, they will find that their Muslim allies were only temporarily using them for their own nefarious jihad.
