Well if nothing else this is certainly a new argument, by right-winger Tamara Wilhite, on why gay marriage is a “bad thing.” It pisses off the terrorists.
What does this have to do with terrorism? Quite a bit. These Muhajadeen – mad Muslim Men – hate us. Their real reason is that we refuse to roll over and cry Mullah. Their stated reasons are our evil vice and our support for Israel. How does the failure of the Federal Marriage Amendment play into their hands? Not only do we allow our women to go unveiled. Not only do we allow our daughters to have sex outside of marriage. Not only do we allow abortion. Not only do we allow women equal rights. We dare to allow homosexuality to exist.
In Muslim countries, the punishment for homosexuality ranges from death to a long prison sentence. Mohammed’s word was for homosexuals to be executed. Not only do we allow homosexuals to exist. Not only don’t we allow them to live, we tolerate them living in the open. They can be seen in public office and public broadcasting. Now, worst of all, we are granting them equal parity in the law with heterosexual couples. If that is not giving the green light to sin, then neither is Madonna dancing around in the near nude provocative.
The full article over at Bush Country is short and borderline incoherent, but the gist that I take away from it is that Tamara seems to be arguing that we should outlaw gay marriage because that’s what the terrorists want us to do and we shouldn’t piss them off any more than we already have. She seems to be trying to imply that Islamic terrorists regard homosexuality to be the worst of all possible sins making all the other transgressions we’ve allowed pale in comparison such that the bad guys would be even more motivated to strike out at us in “protest for this evil,” as she puts it. Come to think of it, she seems to agree with the terrorists about what should be considered evil which leaves you to wonder how she’s any different from the bad guys she’s trying to save us from…
