Are you REALLY surprised that the left is reacting this way?
It seems that leftists don’t ever take Muslims to task even though they sometimes share the same view as Christians that are called ‘bigots’ and all the ‘-ists’ and ‘-phobes’ that the left can concoct.
For example, Leftists have made a big hullaballoo with Christian bakers not baking cakes for gay weddings, but have they ever questioned whether a Muslim baker would do that?
Australia is holding a ‘Postal Vote’ campaign to legalize gay marriage. It’s a simple Yes or No question that was mailed out to Australians in August. All ballots must be received by November 7, and the final results will be released to the public on November 15.
There is a lot of information out there on this ‘Postal Survey’ and Alice Workman of Buzzfeed asked perhaps the most ridiculous of all questions, ‘If I draw a d*ck on my ballot will it still count?‘
(That’s some kinda reporting right there from the Trump Dossier folks.
Gee, I wonder why the President keeps calling them ‘Fake News’?)
But the outrage occurred when a leader of a religious organization dared to give his opinion that is in line with his faith.
Someone from a different faith had said almost the same thing more than a week earlier, but the Media (D) was ‘meh’ about it.
Contrast the two statements.
That love is like the love of friends… It is love and it is valuable but it’s not and it can’t be the kind of love that we call marriage… Parents can’t marry their children, children can’t marry their parents… Sibling marrying sibling has always been ruled out. People underage have been disqualified from marrying but so too people of the same sex.
We might love our mum and dad intensively but you don’t denigrate that love with sexual behaviour,… We should all love each other but that type of love ends in denigrating people; there is nothing to stop you from having the utmost love for your friends who might be the same gender but it doesn’t mean you strip naked together and start doing things.

Let’s be real for a second — there is exactly one religion that is demanding the death penalty for homosexuality.
Even the staunchest Christian sect calls homosexuality a sin — one that can be atoned.
The most radical sects of Islam, on the other hand. would rather toss gays off of buildings. (And I’m not saying that Trad is advocating that, he clearly isn’t in this statement.)
So why side with the actual homophobes and oppressors and not allow Christians to express their views of what marriage is from a religious perspective?
The state didn’t define marriage — God did.
And there is this thing in the West called ‘Religious freedom’.
I know it’s not popular these days, but it is one of those things that sets the West apart from other countries.
Perhaps we need a reminder of that now and again.
