Rosie O'Donnell...Listen up.

I try to avoid blogging when I am angry. Which is why I didn't blog on Rosie O' Donnell's stupid and ridiculous rant on "The View" regarding Radical Islamists and Fundamentalist Christians the other day. I am calm now, but still upset.

Here is what Rosie said, "Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam.."

Michelle and MaryKatherine over at Hot Air have a great video explaining their "view," but I want to go a bit deeper on the subject.

First of all, make no mistake about it, when Rosie refers to "radical Christians" she is referring to people like me. Don't think for a moment that she was referring to the likes of Fred Phelps. She was referring to Christians like myself who don't want to see gay marriage, who are against abortion, and live our lives according to our faith.

Let me get straight to the bottom line here. FACT: If Rosie lived under radical Islam they would seek to torture and kill her. FACT: There is not a true Christian organization that would seek or condone any harm to anyone who is gay in this country, including Pat Robertson, Dr. James Dobson, and the Catholic Church.

Not only would we not harm anyone who is gay, we would stand at the gate and fight to death anyone who tried to harm, torture, or kill an innocent person who happened to be gay.

And therein lies the sad irony that Rosie lives with in her delusional leftwing world.

Let's imagine a worst case scenerio. Let's imagine a world decades from now where radical Islamics got a hold of nuclear bomb and attacked us and won. Let's imagine what the United States would look like under radical Islamic rule.

Wait a second. We don't have to imagine what it would look like, we just can take a look at modern Iran.

From Independent Gay Forum:

"Protesting the hanging of two gay teens in Iran, OutRage, a british gay group led a world wide protest on July 19th of this year. The message? “Iran: Stop Killing Gays! Stop Killing Kids!”

"During the planning of the protests, OutRage proposed five demands, which were endorsed by PGLO and IDAHO. They included ending all executions in Iran; stopping the arrest and torture of LGBT Iranians; halting the deportation to Iran of LGBT and other asylum seekers."

This message was sent by a gay young man from Iran:

"In a July 6 interview in Gay City News, Doug Ireland quotes Mani (not his real name), a 24-year-old PGLO activist living in Iran: “You who live serenely and comfortably on the other side of Iran’s frontiers, be aware that those who think and feel and love like you do in Iran are executed for the crime of homosexuality, are assassinated, kidnapped, and barred from working in offices…. Be fair and tell us what difference there is between us and you. Isn’t it time that all homosexuals around the world rise up and come to our defense?”

But that's Iran, right? And Rosie acknowledges that Iran is a danger. But what she fails to understand is that radical Islam has no border, no country. Does she imagine that those Al Qaeda that we fight and kill in Iraq are not of the same mind toward homosexuality?? Of course they are. Rosie says Afghanistan and Iraq didn't attack us. No, Al Qaeda did. And they are spread all over the region of the Middle East. Read what Bin Laden said in one of his first letters to the American people after 9-11. Remember this was before the invasion. He mentions the regions where he feels America wronged his people:

This letter to Americans from Bin Laden in 2002: (emphasis mine)

(b) The American people are the ones who pay the taxes which fund the planes that bomb us in Afghanistan, the tanks that strike and destroy our homes in Palestine, the armies which occupy our lands in the Arabian Gulf, and the fleets which ensure the blockade of Iraq. These tax dollars are given to Israel for it to continue to attack us and penetrate our lands. So the American people are the ones who fund the attacks against us, and they are the ones who oversee the expenditure of these monies in the way they wish, through their elected candidates."

In that letter he also mentions how Americans killed Iraqis by our sanctions. But here is the part Rosie might be interested in:

"We call you to be a people of manners, principles, honour, and purity; to reject the immoral acts of fornication, homosexuality, intoxicants, gambling's, and trading with interest."

Just to wrap this up for Rosie, here is the teaching on homosexuality by radical Islam:

"Homosexuality is unlawful in Islam. It is neither accepted by the state nor by the Islamic Society.

Quran clearly states that it is unjust, un-natural, transgression, ignorant,criminal and corrupt.
The people living in the time of prophet LOT (Nephew Of Abraham) near the Dead Sea were involved in this Act and Allah punished them severely and the whole nation was destroyed.
Muslim Jurists agree that, if proven of guilt, both of them should be killed. However jurists differ on the methadology of capital Punishment."

Rosie fears the wrong enemy. She doesn't even know who her enemy really is if she thinks Christians would like to see her harmed (or killed) like the radical Islamics do. We may disagree with you Rosie, but we would fight for your right to live free and not be tortured for who you are.

Don't continue to confuse disagreement with hatred.
