What’s wrong with this message from the Democrat Party?
“We want same-sex marriage! We want Sharia law, too!”
While the Democrat platform committee, meeting in the festering disaster area that once was the city of Detroit, officially endorsed homosexual pseudo-marriage, prominent Dems in southern California were endorsing Sharia law. For those who don’t know, Shari is Islamic law, like they have in Saudi Arabia and Iran.
Among the featured speakers extolling Sharia were Congresswomen Maxine Waters and Loretta Sanchez, along with the Los Angeles County sheriff and the deputy chief of the LAPD. Waters and Sanchez, flaming leftists, are among Congress’ most consistent supporters of any measure that enthrones sin as virtue.
The world would be a better place if Maxine Waters were to bundle herself up in a burqa. But Sharia doesn’t work that way. Under Sharia all women, not just harridans in Congress, are required to wrap themselves from head to toe, leaving only a wee slit for the eyes. The penalty for not covering up is… well, death. Either your father and brothers will beat you to death at home, or some zealot on the street will throw acid in your face, or the mullahs will sentence you to death by stoning.
But according to Democrats, Sharia doesn’t conflict in the slightest with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It is difficult to imagine any excuse for saying this.
Never mind—hand in hand, same-sex “marriage” and Sharia law will lead America’s parade into the future, however truncated that future may turn out to be, if Democrats have their way. Country running out of money? Cities falling into ruin? People getting desperate? Who cares! We want gay marriage and Sharia!
Now it might be just a little tricky to keep Sharia and gay rights on the same page. But they do have a lot in common.
Both are totalitarian movements, unable to tolerate even the most minimal dissent. Both demand instant obedience from everyone, or else. The Sharia types prefer to kill their critics. Organized Sodomy, so far, seems content to deal with refuseniks by destroying their livelihoods and making them the objects of universal scorn and hatred—like they tried to do to Chick-fil-A.
Both hate the Christian religion and would like to see it erased someday.
Both will do absolutely anything it takes to get what they want. Both believe they’re not bound by the rules of common decency when confronting any kind of opposition. You can readily see why both have found a home in the Democrat Party.
But it’ll still be tricky. In countries that actually have Sharia law, homosexuality is a capital offense. Anyone who thinks it isn’t should go off to Teheran and stage a “pride” parade. Go on, Human Rights Campaign—I dare you. Those guys in the turbans will give you a reception that you won’t forget: not that you’ll live very long to remember it.
There will be other bumps in the road. That Democrat business with free abortions and free contraceptives—Sharia doesn’t allow that. Sharia does allow free speech, as long as you never, ever say anything bad about Islam, Allah, Mohammed, the Koran, the mullahs running the show, any Muslim leaders past or present, anything said or done by any Muslim throughout history… If you do, they kill you. That’s a bit more final than being accused of homophobia.
We wonder how the Sharia crowd will take to be harangued by Democrat women like Waters and Sanchez, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Elizabeth Warren, and Sheila Jackson Lee; and that’s not even to mention Barney Frank. Then again, how will homosexual activists feel about supporting a law system that would allow any of them to be condemned to death on the uncorroborated testimony of a single policeman?

Gee, that sounds like something the folks at Homeland Security could really get into! And if you think the TSA screeners are bad news now, wait’ll you see how they operate according to Sharia. “Now we check under your burqa for naughty items. Well, we did not find any. But you have exposed yourself to a man, you shameless woman! So we have to kill you.”
It all sounds like a satire. It can’t be true. No political party could be so schizophrenic.
But it is true, and it is the Democrats, and they have embraced the darkness of this world and serve their master, Satan. Only he could think of hitching sodomy and Sharia to the same chariot.
Woe to those who ride that chariot.
