Strange bedfellows: Al Qaeda and America’s Religious Right both oppose gay marriage

Guilt-by-association has never been my cup of tea. That kind of thing is most commonly practiced by those on the political right.

Still, I can’t resist the temptation to pass along THIS EVIDENCE that the homophobes in certain American religious circles have an infamous ally on at least one issue:

In the latest issue of Inspire, the Al Qaeda-produced English-language magazine that teaches readers how to cause traffic accidents, torch parked cars, and “make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom, the terrorist group goes after President Barack Obama for “evolving” on marriage equality.

    Dumb article. Its just as ridiculous as those who think that the Roman empire crumbled in part because of acceptance of homosexual activity.

    Correlation is not causation.

  2. Neftali: You say: “Correlation is not causation.”

    What does that have to do with this post? Who said anything here about causation? I didn’t. The piece to which I linked didn’t either.

    The point of this post is simply to make a snarky comparison of homophobia among two different kinds of religious extremists.

  3. Yes, two groups of religious extremists and 2 groups with irrational bigotry.

    Lets be honest, the Christian Churches of the world ran entire continents much like fundamentaist/terrorist regimes do in Islamic countries today. If the enlightenment didn’t make them give up so much ground, they still would.

    Democrats and the majority of high school dropouts voted for Obama. More relevant than PC’s usual nonsense.

    Science has been no friend of homosexuality either until the 70s.
