One of the most ridiculous arguments we hear constantly from the Christian right is this idea that gays and liberals are in cahoots with Muslims to destroy Christianity. Unhinged bigot Linda Harvey praises Muslim cab drivers who refused to drive cabs with ads for the Gay Games in Cleveland while still claiming there’s a Gay-Muslim axis working together against Christianity.
“I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s going to be a big gathering of homosexuals in the city of Cleveland in August for what is called the Gay Games,” Harvey said. “Yes I know, it seems that these folks can’t stop proclaiming in public the sinful behavior they’ve told us for years they wanted to keep private.”
“About twenty-five cab drivers who are Muslims are refusing to drive cabs that display the Gay Games promotional signs. And you know what, I totally agree with them, good for them for having the courage to stand up and do this.”…
Moments after saluting this anti-gay move by a group of Muslim taxi drivers, she then alleged that Muslims and gays are working together to bring down Christianity.
“But there’s something else. Could it be that the two groups have a common denominator that transcends the homosexuality issue, and that is they both essentially despise Christians?” she explained. “Sadly, I believe that gets to the heart of what is going on, whether these folks admit it or not.”
Let’s see, we have the Christian and Muslim fundamentalists who agree on virtually everything, especially their hatred of gay people and desire to discriminate against them and punish them. They both rail against atheists and against the downfall of America into rampant immorality. And yet it’s the gay people who are working with the Muslims, right? Seriously, this kind of stupid should be painful.
