Dispatch from the Eurabian Front: Poles vs Gays vs Muslims
From the desk of Paul Belien on Tue, 2006-01-17 15:51
The European Parliament has called for tough action against European Union member states, such as Poland and the Baltic states, that do not uphold rights of homosexuals. Franco Frattini, the European commissioner for justice, freedom and security, told the European Parliament yesterday that the EU has powers under Article 13 of the Treaty to combat all forms of discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of sexuality.
MEPs from all the main political groups demanded sanctions against countries such as Poland, Latvia and Lithuania. Polish prime minister Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz said last year that homosexuality is unnatural. Latvia has included an amendment in its constitution restricting marriage to a man and a woman, while Estonia has proposed legislation banning same-sex marriages. Poland and Lithuania have also banned “gay pride” parades. Marchers were arrested for attending “illegal demonstrations.”
Polish MEPs reacted defiantly to the criticism. Polish MEP Jan Masiel said that the adoption of children by gays is “repulsive” and “shocking” while compatriot Barbara Kurdycka argued that the European Parliament had no business telling people what to think about homosexuality. Most MEPs, however, demanded an EU clampdown on “homophobia.” They demanded that commissioner Frattini explain what sanctions will be taken against countries that persistently breach the principle of respect for gay rights. Franco Frattini was appointed Commissioner for justice in November 2004 after his compatriot Rocco Buttiglione was forced out of the post by MEPs because, being a Catholic, he considered homosexuality to be a sin.
Some MEPs have called for Poland to have its EU voting rights suspended for its lack of tolerance of homosexuality. Others want to go even further. “Where EU countries breach the human rights of gay and lesbian people, the council of ministers must consider action to suspend member states’ membership of the EU,” said Michael Cashman, a British Labour MEP. Cashman is the president of the Parliament’s “intergroup” on gay and lesbian matters. He is also vice-president of the British organisation Gay & Lesbian Humanists (GALHA). On its website the latter organisation declares that it “fight[s] against Catholic-inspired homophobia [...] which still exists in some European states – notably ultra-Catholic Lithuania and Poland.”
GALHA not only fights “ultra-Catholicism.” It is currently involved in a row over the Autumn issue of its magazine, in which Islam is described as a “barmy doctrine,” which is growing “like a cancer” through “unrestrained and irresponsible breeding.” The magazine described Muslim immigrants as “ill educated and culturally estranged Third Worlders” and published an article endorsing the assassinated right-wing homosexual Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn, who was very critical of Islam. Fortuyn, however, though a homosexual, was proud to be a... Roman-Catholic.
The London-based Race Hate Crime Forum announced that it will “vigorously pursue” a prosecution of the editor or writers who wrote the “racist and degrading” comments. George Broadhead, GALHA’s secretary, says that the organisation has retracted the comments about immigrants and immigration, but that its stands by the remarks about Muslims and Islam. Mr Broadhead wrote in the magazine: “What is wrong with being fearful of Islam? [...] What does a moderate Muslim do, other than excuse the real nutters by adhering to this barmy doctrine?” He explained to The Guardian: “There may be people who think of themselves as moderate but we’ve yet to see them coming out and condemning their fundamentalist counterparts. If they want to follow a belief that we think is execrable it’s up to them – it’s a question of religion per se and the damage it can do in extremist form in theocracies where gays are not just put in jail but whipped and tortured.” At least the latter does not occur in Poland.
The case is indicative of the culture war that is currently raging in Europe between three groups: secularists, Christians and Muslims. On some issues Christians and secularists team up against Muslims, on others issues secularists fight Christians and Muslims alike.

"The case is indicative of the culture war that is currently raging in Europe between three groups: secularists, Christians and Muslims. On some issues Christians and secularists team up against Muslims, on others issues secularists fight Christians and Muslims alike."
You might want to add that, often enough, secularists team up with the Muslims against the Christians. This phenomenon is on the increase, especially in countries like the Netherlands or Germany.
Homosexuality is a public

Homosexuality is a public health disaster.
Over-population is an even worse public health disaster.
The idea that God is offended by sodomy, yet pleased with the sight of a Filipino child scavenging in a landfill site is truly sick and insane, what devil from heaven would be pleased by it?
Also Islam is not homophobic, in fact Islam and Arabs are probably the most homosocial in the world, there is strict gender apartheid, so men socialize and form friendships with other men only. Arab men warmly embrace and kiss each other on the cheeks. During the ritual circumcision of preteen boys, Arab men will gather round the boy and masturbate to the sight of what is effectively a partial castration, albeit one that does not inhibit reproduction. A sodomy conviction in Islam requires four witnesses, so as long as the lovers are careful they will not be prosecuted. As Muslims do not marry for love, but marry their first or second cousins to keep the bloodline pure and keep wealth concentrated in the family, the true love of a Muslim man is not his wife and more likely to be a boyfriend, the Pashtuns and Afghans are known for taking boys as lovers, trading caravans left the women at home and took boys dressed as dancing girls along instead.
'Perfumed Garden' by Abu Nuwas:
O the joy of sodomy!
So now be sodomites, you Arabs. Turn not away from it-- therein is
Take some coy lad with kiss-curls twisting on his temple and ride as he
stands like some gazelle standing to her mate.
A lad whom all can see girt with sword and belt not like your whore who
has to go veiled.
Make for smooth-faced boys and do your very best to mount them, for
women are the mounts of the devils

accompanied by one pro-gay advertisement from google and one ambivalent ad through google from a company that supports gays and grants them benefits the same as married couples...
Bill O'Reilly style "equal time"?
"(Cashman) is also vice-president of the British organisation Gay & Lesbian Humanists (GALHA). On its website the latter organisation declares that it “fight[s] against Catholic-inspired homophobia [...] which still exists in some European states – notably ultra-Catholic Lithuania and Poland.”"
They must not be familiar with the homosexual priests who abuse children the world over the Vatican has known about and not only done nothing for centuries, but supported. The Vatican would appear to be a sodomite's best friend. Only recently have they even come close to distancing themselves from the other sodomites and that only because of legal liability, not any high brow 'principles' and certianly not because of sound doctrine.
The Vatican "homophobic"? Besides there being no such thing as "homophobic" any more than there are 'adultry-phobics', the Vatican is the last thing from an anti-sodomite. Remember, it is the mating call of the lone sodomite in the wilderness to say: "God is Love" as he calls to his potential encounter of whatever age or experience.

In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen

from Mark Steyn's "mailbox"
As Jeff of Beautiful atrocities advised his fellow gays, “Under Shariah, you'll really be giving head, & not in a good way” – a line so fantastic he should get a Pulitzer for it.
