How is it possible that supposedly intelligent people make sweeping generalizations about Islam, and then refuse to believe the opposite when presented with overwhelming evidence? The intellectual emptiness of our dear leaders, pundits, apologists and Kool-aid drinkers are overwhelming the sane and rational voices, overwhelming even the words of the enemy so as to render moot any questioning of motive or objective. How the gay community can continue to support Islamic doctrine which condemns them to death is beyond rational, almost a Stockholm Syndrome on steroids mindset is beyond my thinking, and that irrationality will, in the end subject them to unimaginable horrors. The city of San Francisco, its leaders and all free thinking people should be standing together, denouncing Islamic dogma that demands death for homosexuality, instead of carrying politically correct water for their executioners. They are demonizing the messenger when their anger needs to be directed at the message, but to do that would just bring charges of Islamophobia.
Welcome to another trip down the rabbit hole...

HEAD OF SF HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION TRANSGENDER THERESA SPARKS ON AFDI GAY ADS, IT'S "EASIER TO GET INSURANCE FOR SEXUAL TRANSITION PROCEDURES IN IRAN THAN IN AMERICA"
The disconnect is breathtaking. The head of the San Francisco Human Rights Commission, transgender Theresa Sparks, continues to support the sharia and denounce our ad campaign designed to raise awareness of the plight of gays under Islamic law. Our new campaign uses the actual quotes of President Ahmadinejad, global Muslim spiritual leader Qaradawi and popular radio host in the UK, Sister Ruby Ramadan (political, religious and cultural).
Sparks, something of the spark for our new AFDI campaign, went so far to say, "it’s actually easier to get insurancefor sexual transition procedures in Iran than in America." Hmmm, is that why the President of Iran insists there are no homosexuals in that country?
Such delusion is without peer. Sparks ought to spend a little time in that hellhole and see if she escapes with her life. For someone so clear about being true to herself and being who she is, she is either blind or cowardly. The persecution, subjugation and oppression of gays is religious -- it's the sharia. Not every Muslim subscribes to it, of course. But the ideology behind it is very much the problem. Sparks claims it's cultural -- what culture is that? Islamic culture. Sparks is sharpening the blade of her executioners.
Sparks is intellectually dishonest when she claims that our ads "suggest that all Muslims hate gays." That's a red herring. The ads suggest no such thing. The oppression and persecution of gays is epidemic in the Muslim world and Sparks is sanitizing this horror. And many in the gay community suffer here in the United States.
Where was Theresa Sparks when a Muslim gang was targeting gays in San Francisco in a series of attacks, shooting them in the face with a BB gun and video-taping the attacks? A Muslim gang targeted nearly a dozen victims one evening,recording the shootings on a video camera confiscated by police along with a “rifle-style” BB gun.There was a concerted effort within the San Francisco police department to bury this story, and it is only because one officer leaked the report to the media that anything was ever reported. Where was Sparks then?
The Muslims chose their victims "because they appeared to be gay."
