Let us all stand in solidarity with LGBT people now subject to an official policy of murder by the depraved government of Brunei and in the other countries of the world where such barbarism is practiced in the name of a so-called holy book or, indeed, on any other pretext.

Depraved is the word. These tinpot outfits should be shown the door by every government and business concern. The other writers here are correct, it could happen here. Nothing is guaranteed without constant vigilence. To any of our brothers and sisters in this unhappy country - we are with you.

This is what happens when the religious or other zealots are allowed to corrupt government and/or the media. Mythology should have no influence on public policy.

We should always bear in mind that religion was invented by man - usually as a means to control and dominate. Hence the evils that have resulted from many religions. This completely different from spirituality.

And yet organized religion always claims that IT is under attack when that is nothing more than a lie to help them gain legislation that favors their religious beliefs.

Playing the victim just shows the poverty of their arguments. I would love to be around when these people do meet their Maker and receive their reward - a HOT one !

Brunei is only the latest. Checkout all the other countries with draconian anti gay legislation - many in the Commonwealth. Don't forget Saudi Arabia, beloved by the British royal family. Brunei could be the start of a domino effect.

Islam’s view on homosexuality is clear. Islam is a real danger. Islam is incompatible with western liberal democracy. Quite why the self appointed ” leaders “ of the gay community ignore this is troubling. Virtue signalling liberals can’t be honest about Islam and happy to throw gays under the bus. Why ?

And the world is economically and politically conflicted. Try ethical investing and see how quickly red lines are broken. How many of us have pension funds that indirectly prop up this horrific culture.

All we can do is rescue each other.

Borets, I’m calling bullshit on this. The bible’s view of homosexuality is clear too, which is why the gay community in the west has been quite active and vocal in calling out Christian denominations on their discriminatory policies and selective reading of scripture — because we live in traditionally Christian societies with laws that impact us directly. Western gays aren’t giving Islamic countries a pass on the atrocities committed on Muslim gays because of some perceived p.c. liberal taboo on criticizing Islam. We just have a geographic and cultural distance from the countries where this is taking place. There are boycotts organized and both social media and alternative news outlets have cast quite a critical light on Brunei in the past week. So what the fuck are you talking about, saying we’ve thrown gays under the bus?

Translate

borets (83) 12 days ago

I don’t understand what “ geographic or cultural distance “ means. The reactionary attitudes of Muslims in UK are clear on this and many other topics e.g 1/2 think homosexuality should be illegal, 1/2 think gays should not be teachers. Geography has nothing to do with it. Source - https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/apr/11/british-muslims-strong-sense-of-belonging-poll-homosexuality-sharia-law

Geography has everything to do with the specific topic of Brunei, a small country that most people have never heard of. Yet even here, the western gay community and its allies have stepped up with forceful criticism and sanctions. So what‘s your beef? It‘s pointless to simply condemn Islam, which you seem to be wanting gay leaders to do. Christian doctrine contains the same proscriptions regarding homosexuality, but our gains in the Christian west only came by working with the adherents among us — families, colleagues — and changing minds and laws. We live and vote in the west and can only do so much for gays in the Muslim world. If your argument is about the UK specifically I‘ll leave you to it, but even with this poll you cite I‘m betting the numbers are skewed to reflect the attitudes of the older generation.

In the meantime our focus must surely be on helping these poor people.

I suggest people write to their political representatives asking them to add pressure to the Brunei government. I also suggest that people write to their pension and investment providers asking them to avoid investing in projects and assets that benefit Brunei.

Some companies have already banned their executives from staying at The Dorchester.
Their is a demonstration outside the Dorchester today which is a POSITIVE step and also outside his home in London, more positive steps.
