LGBT Liberals Get Brutal Dose Of Reality When They Show Up At Chicago Muslim Convention
During a conference led by leftist darling Linda Sarsour in Chicago, a pro-LGBT group excitedly arrived to hear the anti-Trump speaker spew her lies. However, as soon as they arrived at the convention, they were greeted by a brutal dose of reality.
Despite the left claiming to champion civil rights for fringe social groups, all of the minority interests are quickly sacrificed to Islam’s political push for the Islamization of the West. Now that the tiny Muslim minority is growing in strength and number, these groups are discovering that the liberal love is merely a photo op for the real agenda — creeping Sharia law.
When 2017’s Islamic Society of North America convention was scheduled to take place in Chicago with Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour headlining as speaker, pro-LGBTQ group Muslims for Progressive Values donned their flamboyant hijabs, flexed their gay pride, and headed to the Democratic paradise. However, as soon as they arrived to hear self-proclaimed LGBT ally Sarsour give her address, they were removed from the event because their homosexual stance is vehemently rejected and brutally punished in Islam.
The American Spectator reports that the group, which includes Muslim queers and feminists along with their liberal supporters, was barred from conference seating after event coordinators discovered their pamphlets advocating LGBT and women’s equality in Islam. The group was then forced to close up their information booth and members were escorted out by ISNA staff.
“We’re really sick and tired of the hypocrisy of them (ISNA) claiming to be LGBT allies,” said Ani Zonneveld, founder and president of Muslims for Progressive Values, a faith-based human rights organization founded in 2007. “They’re only an ally when the camera is on.”
Frank Parmir, a Muslim convert and organizer with MPV’s Columbus chapter, and Michael Toumayan, the Human Rights Campaign’s religion and faith program manager, confirmed that a Muslim administrator dressed in “Salafi garb” preached to them that homosexuality is considered a serious sin in Islam. The man explained that “to be a ‘real Muslim,’ one must assert that homosexuality is a sin,” Parmir quoted.
Parmir said that all MPV members were forced out by “a group of men in suits,” including ISNA Conventions, Conferences, and Special Projects Director Basharat Saleem, who told them that their values weren’t compatible with Islam.
“He wasn’t sure that they could allow us to stay because of some of the literature and some of the positions we were advocating,” Parmir said. “They would have to think about it and get back to us…They were okay with HRC’s advocacy for gay rights. They were not okay with MPV’s advocacy that gays should find unrepentant inclusion with the Muslim community and that women should be given equality.”
Soon after their expulsion from the event, MPV published a statement condemning ISNA for their “hypocrisy.”
