The Gay Patriot points out a most profound truth:

the greatest enemies of gay people are not social conservatives in the West who may question (what they call) our lifestyle and oppose legislation benefiting us, but Islamic theocrats who execute gay people in jurisdictions where they predominate and seek to destroy the nations with political systems which allow us to live freely.

I have several conversations with my lefty friend, dave bones across the pond, about similar thoughts. Although dave is not gay, he does live an alternative lifestyle. I tell him that I am amazed that he doesn't see the threat that the radical Muslims pose to his very life, and how it is only conservatives who seem to understand this. The one thing I do know that dave bones understands is that we in America would be the first to defend him and his life if necessary, as we would for gays. I have posted several times about executions on gay youths in Iran for example. How many leftwing blogs have you read that report on this?

Conservatives may disagree with gay lifestyles, but we would stand and defend their right to live as they wish. We fight the ones who hang them from cranes. We understand the danger.

The Gay Patriot goes on to report on violent acts upon gays in Europe. Read the whole thing.

Update: BigDog reminded me of this piece by Bruce Bawer, a gay American who thought he might find more tolerance in Europe.

He was wrong:

Once an oasis of tolerance, Europe is slowly but surely succumbing to Islamization. "Sharia law may still be an alien concept to some Westerners," writes Bruce Bawer. "But it's staring gay Europeans right in the face -- and pointing toward a chilling future for all free people."


The reason for the rise in gay bashings in Europe is clear - and it’s the same reason for the rise in rape. As the number of Muslims in Europe grows, and as the proportion of those Muslims who were born and bred in Europe also grows, many Muslim men are more inclined to see Europe as a part of the umma (or Muslim world), to believe that they have the right and duty to enforce sharia law in the cities where they live, and to recognize that any aggression on their part will likely go unpunished. Such men need not be actively religious in order to feel that they have carte blanche to assault openly gay men and non-submissive women, whose freedom to live their lives as they wish is among the most conspicuous symbols of the West’s defiance of holy law.

Multiculturalists can’t face all this. So it is that even when there are brutal gay-bashings, few journalists write about them; of those who do, few mention that the perpetrators are Muslims; and those who do mention it take the line that these perpetrators are lashing out in desperate response to their own oppression.

The number of reported gay-bashings in Amsterdam now climbs steadily year by year. Nearly half Muslim, the city is a front in the struggle between democracy and sharia, under which, lest it be forgotten, homosexuality can be a capital offense
