The mosque O’Bumski will visit today is both a front for terrorists and a leader against homosexuality. Here’s the mosque’s resident scholar, opining on homosexuals and what should be done about them.
A 2013 Youtube video shows Shaikh, who previously served as imam at a mosque in Plano, Tex., speaking out forcefully against homosexuality in Islam.
During an hour long diatribe, Shaikh called homosexuality a psychological disorder that has no place in Islam or society. He also lamented that gay rights groups have “hijacked” political discourse.
“This whole subject of homosexuality in the public sphere…is no longer a religious issue, unfortunately, as much as we want to use the religious card and try to defeat this, now it’s become a politicized issue,” Shaikh says in the video.
“Politicians are highly influenced by people who back them, and we find that these politicians who are calling for gay rights and marriage and supporting gay rights are lobbied and campaigned by gay activists, by gay groups. And they are throwing money at it left and right to gain some acceptance in society, to be considered normal people, to be treated normally.”
Obama is one such politician who has supported gay rights.
“We have to counter the efforts that are taking place elsewhere,” Sheikh says in the video, advising that “if our children are taught that [homosexuality is] okay, we have to teach them it’s not okay.”
“The president’s visit is proof of his active support of multiculturalism and acceptance, with love, of Muslim beliefs,” White House spokesman Robert Byrd told FWIW. “While the Jews are torturing our Palestinian brothers, Islam restricts its hatred to homos, queers and of course, Shitties or Sunnys, depending on which camp they’re in. That’s moderation, and that’s something all progressive thinkers should, and do, support.”
