Guess who's coming to Iftar?

  1. Thanks for another great article.
    I hope many of your readers are considering voting for ALA-Australian Liberty Alliance as they are concerned about stopping the islamization of Australia- certainly Turnbull doesn't seem to have a clue about the true nature of Islam

  2. Mark, a question. As I read it, Sheikh Shady's views are that homosexuality is sinful, but he does not say that Australia ought to criminalise it or provide the death penalty for it. As you are no doubt aware, mainstream Christianity says that homosexuality is sinful. Does this view then mean that no Bible believing Christian can be invited to dinner with the PM? In other words, should we not uphold the Sheikh's rights to views on a moral issue, so long as it does not extend to applying shariah law in undiluted form in Australian society?

  3. Neil - you raise a good point. First, I uphold the sheikh's right to express his views, including the view that sharia law should apply to Australia. Second, it may well come to pass that an Australian Prime Minister will refuse to sit down to dinner with a Christian pastor who does calls homosexuality a sin. Anyway, what the sheikh said was that sexual activity, especially same-sex activity, spreads diseases. It was the idea that homosexuals spread diseases that got him into trouble in the first place. This was then joined with his comments on adultery, when he said that in an Islamic state adultery would be punished by the death penalty. He is pretty careful in what he says, but it is clear that his view is not just that same-sex activity is sinful.

  4. There's no way that the sheikh can attempt to deflect criticism of his statements by claiming that he was quoted out of context, or is there?

  5. So much has happened since the Turnbull appeasement dinner, I think it is time for another post from you, Mark.
