A multimedia art show in the Netherlands is angering Muslims because it includes pictures of several gay (and I don’t mean ‘happy’) Iranian men posing with masks of Mohamed and his son-in-law Ali. As reported by the new site IslamistWatch:
Also included is a video production titled “Allah ho gaybar,” which goes so far as to depict Mohammed as a homosexual. (The film, since posted to the web, was censored by YouTube.)
But what’s really interesting is not that these pictures offend Islamopaths (no surprise there), but that it reveals (1) the prevalence of homosexuality within the repressive Islamic society, and (2) the failure of multiculturalism in Holland.
1. Homosexuality in Muslim countries
I have long suspected, but not had time to research, this hypothesis – in countries and religious communities (Islam, the Catholic priesthood, some fundamentalist churches) that suppress normal human sexuality, aberrant sexuality like rape, homosexuality and pedophilia increase.
Note, by suppress, I don’t mean asking congregants to use self-control, and abstain from promiscuous sex – I mean communities that frown upon even healthy, hetero, married sex, practice a myopic focus on ‘holiness,’ or forbid sex altogether for church leaders (like the unbiblical celibacy rule for Catholic priests).
I have suspected that Imams and other powerful Muslims, while outwardly condemning sexual immorality, are secretly engaged in such things as homosexuality and man/boy sex because they lack a healthy sexual relationship with and perspective towards women, and that such alternate outlets for sexual desire are probably ignored knowingly throughout the culture. The artist whose work is being vilified seems to confirm my suspicions about Islamic countries (and we already know what happens when you force Catholic priests to be celibate):
34-year-old Sooreh Hera (warning: website includes some graphic content) was born in Teheran, and seeks, through her art, and in her own words, to denounce “hypocrisy with regard to sexuality in the Muslim world.”
She claims that male homosexual relations are common, if ignored, in the Muslim world – in Iran and Saudi Arabia, especially.
2. The failure of undiscerning tolerance
Sooreh came to Holland seven years ago, one imagines to pursue her art and passion freely, and to exploit the nation’s famous tolerance. She describes her disappointment in words that echo Pim Fortuyn’s claim that the Dutch had invited a “Trojan horse of intolerance” into their society in the name of multiculturalism:
“I thought I would find freedom of expression in the Netherlands,” she complains. “But this is not a free state. It’s become an Islamist dictatorship.” She says, finally: “Allah is great in the Netherlands, and it’s fear that reigns.”
This is why we, conservative Americans (and surprisingly, gay advocates, what strange ‘bedfellows’) must be vigilant in resisting Islamification of the US. We may truly be the last hope of the west, which in Europe has succumbed to the deceptions of Islam via pathologic ‘tolerance.’
I for one am glad that, even though I find homosexuality unsavory and unhealthy, gay art is offending Islamofascists. Not because I like such offenses, but because freedom of speech should not be cowed into submission by threats, even if we don’t like what is being said.
As long as confused liberals and gay advocates confuse the Christian opposition to homosexuality with the Islamic type, they will be letting Islamic violence slip into our culture. Christianity may not ‘tolerate’ the gay agenda, but we value human rights, and do not bow to lethal threats in any sense, and you would be hard-pressed to find such threats among even fringe Christians. Islam makes no such promises. It rules by fear, intimidation, and murder.
“Abraham is our father,” they answered.
“If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do the things Abraham did. As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the things your own father does.”
Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your
father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!
Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.“
