The mentality of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen is a stark reminder of how religion often perverts sexual morality. Mateen apparently believed that homosexuality between consenting adults is morally wrong and that taking thousands of women as sex slaves as ISIS does is not morally wrong. He had it exactly backwards. Homosexuality is not morally wrong. Slavery and rape are morally wrong. If this anti-gay jihadist terrorism “has nothing to do with religion” as Omar Mateen’s father dishonestly claims, then it follows that KKK lynchings against African Americans “had nothing to do with racism”. ISIS is a far-right religious extremist … Continue reading Thoughts on the anti-gay jihadist attack against Pulse nightclub in Orlando
I innocently wandered over to the Rational Wiki FB page thinking I would find like-minded people and if there were disagreements it would result in rational debate. Olivia Guest had posted an article by Mona Eltahaway in which she argues that Islam is not the source of misogyny in the Arab world. I made a comment that I thought this was dishonest. From then on I was bombarded by bizarre threats to be sent to “a gulag”. I was called a racist and Islamophobic. I was assumed to be a libertarian and anti-feminist when I am neither.

“The USA would have worked with Bin Laden had he been willing, but Bin Laden would never have worked with the USA. He hated the USA and was even then plotting to go to war with the USA. He didn’t need “funding” as he was rich and was in Afghanistan and Pakistan in order to give his own money away to jihadists who supported his takfiri salafist ideology. He didn’t need training as he was already experienced in the construction business and in finance, had a degree in engineering, and had the backing of many trained fighters, mostly Egyptian radicals who were also extremely anti-USA. The “CIA trained and funded Bin Laden” meme is a complete and utter myth.” Continue reading Osama Bin Laden was not “funded and trained by the CIA”
Video: Brutal execution of two Shiite Muslim men in Pakistan by the Al Qaeda affiliated Sunni Islamist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Don’t watch this if you can’t handle violence. It is horrifying. This is extreme and this is what the Islamists that fake “liberals”, fake “leftists”, fake “libertarians”, fake “paleoconservatives”, fake “feminists”, fake “humanists”, and fake “anti-war activists” in the West apologize for do on a regular basis. If you truly care about the rights of Muslims and non-Muslims in the so-called “Islamic world” you will quit promoting the lie that Islamists are fighting against “imperialism” when the truth is that they … Continue reading Video: Brutal execution of two Shiite Muslim men in Pakistan by the Al Qaeda affiliated Sunni Islamist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi
