WHILE Gwent council may have thought it fit to squander taxpayers’ money in an attempt, no doubt, to whitewash Islam – which is a bit like putting lipstick on a pig (see earlier post by Andy Armitage below) – the British gay magazine AXM has had no qualms this month in presenting this jack-ass religion in a much more realistic light.
The magazine carries an interview with Michael Lucas, in which the Russian-born Jewish porn star and gay rights activist says:
I hate Islam with all my heart. The fundamentalist Muslim community chooses to follow every ugly requirement of their bible – polygamy, the imposition of burquas on women, the decapitation of adulterous wives, the mutilation of thieves, wife beatings, arranged marriages, female circumcisions, and, of course, the killing of gays.
Asked how the world should deal with the homophobia of Islam, Lucas said:
We should publicise it, expose it and criticise it. Multicultural liberals keep Islam’s homophobia a secret. I despise the Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, for this. I have a huge respect for Arabs, it’s their religion I don’t like.
In the same issue of AXM, veteran human rights activist Peter Tatchell reveals that he gets death threat almost every day.
Right now, I have Islamic fundamentalists, allegedly from the Iranian government, after me because I embarrassed the country when I exposed the execution of two young gay boys in 2005. They ring me up at night and shout “you’ll be chopped up and destroyed” and “the punishment for sodomy is death.”
