    Liberal Logic – Rahm Emanuel Edition 

    Rahm Emanuel, Chicago’s mayor, has put his liberal logic on full display for all the world to see. You see, the mayor decided to weigh in on the Chik Fil A non-controversy by announcing Chik Fil A doesn’t share “Chicago Values”. Really? It wasn’t all that long ago that the mayor admitted that some in his city have the wrong values.

    Now this same man has decided that the city needs the help of The Nation of Islam to patrol the streets to help cut down on the unending violence in the city now being dubbed “MurderTown”.

    So this idiot liberal would like to keep Chik Fil A from expanding in the City of Chicago, which of course violates our laws, because they believe in traditional marriage. This belief, held by millions around the country, is simply that marriage is between one woman and one man. It in no way wants to see discrimination against homosexuals. Gay people can do what ever they want to do with that one exception. That is it. We don’t call for violence against people, we don’t call for the death of anyone. We are simply stating that the institution of marriage is something that is held sacred and by redefining marriage we are being asked to accept beliefs that violate our religious views and conscience.

    Islam, however, is a very different story:

    The Sunan Abu Dawud, named after its editor, is another reliable collection of hadith. Ibn Abbas reports the following about early Islam and Muhammad’s punishment of homosexuals: . . . “If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done” (vol. 3, p. 145, no. 4447).

    The next one from the same collection says that an unmarried man who commits sodomy should be stoned to death: “Ibn Abbas said: if a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death” (vol. 3, p. 1245, no. 4448).

    Thus, these two passages in Sunan Abu Dawud go further than merely rejecting and banishing homosexuals or sexual sinners, as we saw in Bukhari’s collection. Rather, Ibn Abbas says that Muhammad and the early Muslim community commanded their execution.

    The hadith editor Timidhi repeats Ibn Abbas’ narration: “Ikrima reported on the authority of Ibn Abbas that God’s messenger [Muhammad] said: ‘If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it and the one to whom it is done.’” (Recorded in Mishkat al-Masabih, trans. James Robson, vol. 2, p. 763, Prescribed Punishments). In the same hadith collection, the Mishkhat al-Masabih, a compendium that brings together other hadith collections, are found the punishments of being burned to death and having heavy objects thrown on the guilty homosexuals:

    The Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan also have such a good record when it comes to your faith, Mr. Mayor:

    “[T]he Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man. He wasn’t a great man for me as a black person, but he was a great German. Now, I’m not proud of Hitler’s evils against Jewish people, but that’s a matter of record. He raised Germany up from nothing. Well, in a sense you could say there’s a similarity in that we are raising our people up from nothing.” — Louis Farrakhan, radio interview, March 11, 1984

    “Jews have been conclusively linked to the greatest criminal endeavor ever undertaken against an entire race of people … the black African Holocaust. … The effects of this unspeakable tragedy are still being felt among the peoples of the world at this very hour.” — The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews (NOI book), 1991

    “Who are the slumlords in the Black community? The so-called Jews. … Who is it sucking our blood in the Black community? A white imposter Arab and a white imposter Jew.” — Speech by NOI national official Khalid Muhammad, Nov. 29, 1993

    “These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews, the false Jews, that are promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s the wicked Jews, false Jews, that make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you homophobic!” — Louis Farrakhan, Saviours’ Day speech, Feb. 26, 2006

    So these are Chicago Values. Good to know. With values like these, it is no wonder the murder rate is so high.

      A curious thing, this islam; on the one hand, homosexuals are to be executed, but as reported a couple weeks ago, a muslim had agreed to be voluntarily sodomized by 5 or more guys so that his rectum would be stretched large enough for the insertion of explosives. He wanted to become a human bomb. Would whittling down a length of closet rod deprive his buddies of some deviant sexual pleasure ? It`s permitted to have sex with goats, ya know !

      We know that it is OK in islam for the muslims to lie to infidels in the furtherance of the islamic cause, is it also OK to be sodomizer and sodomizee in the cause of islamic jihad ??

      Sorry ladies, I realize this is not standard dinner table fare, but the glaring hypocrisy of the ROP and what some, too many, on the left want to support or at least give appeasement to is just a bit disturbing to me ! And NO, I don`t normally spend a lot of time thinking on such subjects ! This one kinda “mooned me” as it were !

      But it’s such a “peaceful” cult, er uh, I mean religion.

      • SignPainterGuy 12:29 PM on 07/28/2012 Permalink | Reply

        “Peaceful”; they keep using that word. I do not think it means what they think it means !

    I’ll Eat Where I Want to Eat – Video 

    Gay marriage is a losing issue with the black community.  While it may be more accepting of it, they are still largely against it.  I don’t understand why the democrats are bringing this so much to the forefront this close to the election.  It isn’t going to help Obama.

    As long as Chik Fil A is not refusing to serve or hire people based upon their sexual orientation, they are doing nothing wrong.  The owner has the right to his opinion.  For now anyway.

      That is an example of tolerance. Great video!

      ” I don’t understand why the democrats are bringing this so much to the forefront this close to the election. It isn’t going to help Obama.”

      Because sometimes people support issues because those issues matter to them, not because they will help any one politician.

        The issue that the owner of Chik Fil A doesn’t have the right to his opinion? How American.

        • NotAScientist 3:24 PM on 07/26/2012 Permalink | Reply

          No. The issue that homosexuals should be allowed to marry people they love and get the same federal benefits that heterosexuals do.

          The owner of any business, provided they do not do anything illegal, can say whatever they want and hold any opinion.

          And we are completely free to express our disagreement or distaste for their opinion. It’s a two-way street.

            No, actually the issue has become that two mayors are trying to ban them in their cities. A completely illegal act.

            You will find that their business will increase by doing this. It is comical. You are actually giving them more money.

              The comment I referred to in your post was about gay marriage. Not about denying businesses access to cities.

              “Gay marriage is a losing issue with the black community. … I don’t understand why the democrats are bringing this so much to the forefront this close to the election. It isn’t going to help Obama.”

              That is the comment I responded to.

              If that is not what you meant, then you may want to edit your original post.

                Part of bringing it to the forefront is trying to deny access in two cities. An illegal and stupid act. In this climate of unemployment the last thing urban mayors should be seen doing is denying jobs because they don’t like the franchise owner’s opinion on gay marriage.

                These two mayors aren’t standing on principle, they are playing to the base of the party. Using this issue this close to the election is a mistake. Gay Marriage has lost every time it has reached the ballot. People are still largely against it.

                  “Part of bringing it to the forefront is trying to deny access in two cities. ”

                  No it’s not.

                  It’s an overreaction from people who don’t understand how the law works.

                  “Gay Marriage has lost every time it has reached the ballot. People are still largely against it.”

                  Don’t care. it’s still the morally correct position.

                    Moral to you. But to other people it is immoral. You don’t get decide some one else’s morality, that comes from within.

                    • NotAScientist 3:56 PM on 07/26/2012 Permalink | Reply

                      You’re right, I don’t.

                      However, when dealing with what is legal, we adhere to a morality that is defined based on harm and benefit. No harm is caused by gay marriage, and there are plenty of benefits. Thus, it is both moral and should be legal.

                      Give it a few more years, and it will be legal everywhere.

                      • just a conservative girl 4:02 PM on 07/26/2012 Permalink

                        Possibly, but that won’t change how people view it. Abortion has been legal for decades and the country is trending more pro life every year. Nor does something being legal, make it right.

                        And you find plenty of people that will be willing to debate on harm to society from gay marriage. Again, that is your opinion and your view of morality. Not fact.

      @NotAScientist

      So because slavery was legal in the United States it was moral? The problem with @NotAScientist’s statements is there is not much evidence as to whether gay “marriage” negatively affects society – children – so for some reason people think there needs to be an experiment to find that out. But also as a society when two people get married society recognizes that as legitimate or moral, so when progressives want to change the meaning of marriage they are indeed forcing people who oppose gay “marriage” on moral grounds to violate their consciences. But if homosexuals wanted to truly keep this a private issue, as they declared in the beginning of their crusade, that would be fine because I really don’t care what people do in the bedroom. As far as benefits go that is fine. I am fine with gay couples having civil unions and having the same benefits as everyone else in our society. That can be done without perverting the meaning of marriage. But then I think that the applicability of benefits should be expanded, not based on sexual orientation, so any two people such as two sisters living together are able to have the same benefits as others.
