Motes and beams

Professional Islamophobes like Pamela Geller are forever banging on about the dreadful treatment of gays under Islam, and so are the paid but distinctly amateurish ones like Bonni the Hitler Fan, but if they really gave a damn about the persecution of gays they'd start closer to home. Read this post by Ed Brayton.

Consider also: treatment of gays in Christian Russia.

Treatment of gays in Christian Uganda (ably assisted by American evangelical Christians).

Treatment of gays in (mostly) Christian Ethiopia (again encouraged by American evangelicals).

And let us remember that when Israel invaded Jordan and stole the West Bank in 1967, a country which had legalised homosexuality in 1951 was being invaded by one where it would remain criminal until 1988. Gee, I bet all the poor oppressed gays in the West Bank were happy to be "liberated" into Israeli jails.

But the Christians do it because God commands them to.
