Not all homophobias are equal
"There's good homophobia and bad homophobia. Muslim homophobias are good homophobias. They can't help it. It's part of their religion. And if the phobic one is from a poor group and is a registered Democrat to boot, we must totally forgive him. And for the sake of his family, we must limit all publicity as far as possible"
Does that sound like a sane response to the Orlando massacre? I wrote it as a prediction of what Leftists will say about the matter. I read a lot of Leftist stuff so know the sort of thing they say. So we will see. The fact that the victims were mostly minorities might slow them down a bit, though.
UPDATE: I wasn't cynical enough above. Below is an actual and quite deranged Leftist response:
Christian conservatives are responsible for the mass shooting at a gay bar in Orlando because they "created this anti-queer climate," according to American Civil Liberties Union attorneys.
"You know what is gross — your thoughts and prayers and Islamophobia after you created this anti-queer climate," ACLU staff attorney Chase Strangio tweeted on Sunday morning.
But Strangio — who "spend[s his] life fighting Christian homophobia while being loved & supported by [his] Muslim family" — and his colleagues connected the shooting back to Christians and Republican politicians who oppose gay marriage. "The Christian Right has introduced 200 anti-LGBT bills in the last six months and people blaming Islam for this," Strangio tweeted. "No."
One wonders how he explains Muslims in the Middle East throwing gays off buildings
