In the long running saga to reform sex education in British schools, the UK government tabled a last minute ammendment to the Children, Schools and Families Bill which will allow sex education to be taught in England in a way that reflects a school’s “religious character”. Secularists have described the ammendment as an ‘opt out’ for faith schools, a charge denied by schools minister Jim Knight. “There’s no other subject that schools would be allowed to teach with their own version of the truth,” claims atheist Mark Steel, who mocks the ammendment as absurd and unworkable. The Head of a Muslim faith school interviewed on Radio 4 was asked how a gay pupil would feel being taught that his sexuality was wrong. “He’d have to think very deeply.” He said. The Bill will come into effect in September 2011. In a letter to The Guardian, Ed Balls, Secretary of state for children, schools and families, has stated all schools must have “a zero-tolerance approach to bullying” and “specific guidance on tackling homophobic bullying” will be issued in due course.
Islam Online has a new section called “Unveiling the homosexuality.”
Here’s an excerpt from an interview with Dr. Awsam Hanna, an Egyptian psychiatrist who has experience in ‘reparative therapy’ where he is describing the ‘homosexual personality.’
It is also a part of the whole “homosexual personality,” characterized by low self-esteem, lack of social skills, disconnection from body, and emotional isolation from society with varying degrees in different individuals. The isolation is not just because of the hatred and homophobia of society, it is an element in the psychopathology (disease process) of the disorder itself. Of course the homophobia of the society adds to it, but it is not entirely caused by it.
I guess that means there is no such thing as a socially or economically successful gay person.

There has been a huge media furore surrounding the appearance of the British National Party’s Nick Griffin on BBC Question Time this Thursday just gone. For those interested in this debacle, I’ve posted a handful of links to recent BNP-related news stories on The Daily Terror.
French football team made up of Muslims refuses to play a football made up of gays:
The Creteil Bebel Muslim team pulled out of its planned tie with Paris Foot Gay (PFG) at the weekend, saying it went against their religious beliefs to play against homosexuals.
The PFG said they would sue Creteil Bebel for homophobia.
Creteil Bebel defended their pullout, saying their religious convictions were much more important than any sporting event.
“As a Muslim, I have the right not to play against homosexuals because I don’t share their ideas,” Zahir Belgarbi, one of the team directors, told France Bleu radio.
They seem a little selective in which ideas they don’t seek to share a football pitch with. Do they oppose teams made up of people who have sex outside of marriage, drink alcohol, eat pork, and wear those embarrassingly tight 1970s football shorts?
More importantly, surely they must have been aware as to who their potential opponents might be when they entered this amateur tournament? If this was a league-style tournament, then they must have known. Even if it was a knockout, they would only have been hedging their bets (haram!) and hope Paris Foot Gay would be knocked out (or they themselves were eliminated from the tournament).
Recently, I posted a link to a blog post by Richard Silverstein that explained how Zionist hasbara-heads were promoting the first-ever all-Israeli, all-Jewish gay porn film for the purpose of placing Israel on a pedestal and showing how ‘tolerant’ and ‘freedom-loving’ it is – which, as the theory went, would also throw into stark relief the morbid homophobia of the Arabs/Palestinians.
Israeli police say a gunman entered a youth club for gay teens in central Tel Aviv on Saturday night and sprayed the interior with automatic rifle fire, killing three people and injuring 11.
“This was a hate crime, a premeditated attack,” witness Yaniv Weisman told Channel 10 TV. He said Cafe Noir, the basement club, was popular with youth.
“Those hurt were very young,” he said.
Openly gay Knesset lawmaker Nitzan Horowitz said it was “without a doubt the biggest ever attack on the Israeli gay community, we are all in shock.”
Witnesses told Israeli media that the gunman was dressed all in black, and described the scene as a “bloodbath.”
The gunman fled the scene and has not been caught. May Allah give the victims peace and justice.
Gay bloggers and gay newspapers have been aggressively questioning the use of donated funds by an activist group called Iraqi lgbt, an unregistered charity that works to protect Iraqi gays from homophobic violence. One blogger claims Iraqi lgbt has been stonewalling him, and the SF Bay Times picked up the story:
Reading Petrelis’s hectoring email string, posted on his blog, one first feels some sympathy for the beleaguered activist at the receiving end of Michael’s incessant demands for details. In the end, however, one starts to wonder why the hell [Chairman] Hili can’t get it together to send even a minimal report…
Iraqi lgbt has now produced an account of its spending here. The group’s statement says its financing of efforts to bring refugees to safety are very sensitive, involve stealth to avoid authorities, and sometimes bribery when authorities can’t be avoided. Recent efforts at outside oversight backfired, putting gay refugees at risk.
* In October 2008, in the wake of news that an effigy of Sarah Palin was being hung outside an affluent Hollywood home as an offensive Halloween decoration, Shay replied, returning to the “LOL” style that she employed after the “coons” comment: “What no ‘Obama in a noose? Come on now, its just freedome [sic] of speech, no one in Atlanta would take that wrong! Lol.”
She picked up the thread again the next morning with a clarification and a new insight. “Apparently I could not spell last night. I am wondering if the guys with the Palin noose would care if we had a bunch of homosexuals in a noose.”

Militias in Iraq are brutally torturing and murdering suspected homosexuals:
“After the buttocks have been glued together, the victim is given a laxative,” Mohamed added. Because they are not able to defecate, the diarrhea eventually leads to death.
Homosexuals in Senegal are facing increasing hostilities as well:
“Gay men will never be free in Senegal. They expose us all to danger,” said Imam Mbaye Niang, a prominent religious leader and member of parliament. “The judges should understand that Senegalese people need to protect their children, their families from homosexuality.”
