Oh, I got that wrong. Here it is:
A disagreement over religious views at the Khadeeja Islamic Center in West Valley City Friday afternoon escalated into a 100-person melee, police said. The fight started about 2:30 p.m. after the midday prayer, which routinely draws large crowds to the mosque, located at 1019 W. Parkway Ave., said West Valley City Police Lt. Bill Merritt. Two different groups whose "religious views vary a little bit" attend the mosque, Merritt said, and sometimes get into verbal spats. As the crowded parking lot emptied Friday, one such disagreement between a 26-year-old man and a juvenile turned violent when the man pulled out...
Whoops. My mistake. This is it:
"Do you practise homosexuality with men? Take that homosexual man and throw him off the mountain."
"If I were to call homosexuals perverted, dirty, filthy dogs that should be murdered, that's my freedom of speech isn't it? They'll say: "No", I'm not tolerant. But they feel that it's okay to say something about the Prophet."
"Homosexuality is an abomination against Allah, and all mankind, and I will never condone it. Even though this is the case, I do not believe in disobeying the law when it comes to the way people."
Well, as you can see, Muslims go pretty far criticizing homosexuals, so it was just a matter of time till Leftists finally got sick of it and trashed a huge mosque:
Mount Arafat... is a ... mosque whose members provide free 24 hour counseling, prayer lines, catastrophic care for families dealing with medical emergencies, support groups for men, women and children dealing with a wide variety of life's troubles, crisis intervention, marriage ministries, regular, organized volunteer work in and around the city, missions in dozens of countries across the globe, a construction department that has built over 100 mosques, madrassas, orphanages and other projects all over the world and an in-depth prison da'wa that reaches out, touches and helps the men and women the rest of society fears the most. They also teach respect for all human life and the Koranic sanctity of marriage as an institution between one man and one woman.
This is what Michigan liberals label a "radical Muslim establishment," and over 30 of them showed up in force yesterday. Wearing secret-service style ear pieces and microphones they received the "go" from their ringleader and off they went.
Prayer had just finished when men and women stood up in pockets across the congregation, on the main floor and in the balcony.
"Mohammed was gay," they shouted, among other profanities and blasphemies, as they rushed the stage. Some forced their way through rows of women and kids to try to hang a profane banner from the balcony while others began tossing fliers into the air. Two women made their way to the pulpit and began to kiss.
Their other props? I'll let them tell you in their own words... from another of their liberal blogs:
"(A) video camera, a megaphone, noise makers, condoms, glitter by the bucket load, confetti, pink fabric...yeh."
The video camera they put to good use as they attempted to provoke a violent reaction. The image of the pink-clad folks above is one of theirs, stating in a picture worth more than a thousand words the goals of the Michigan left.
The "open minded" and "tolerant" liberals ran down the aisles and across the pews, hoping against hope to catch a "moderate" on tape daring to push back (none did). And just in case their camera missed the target, they had a reporter in tow. According to a source inside the mosque yesterday there was a "journalist" from the Lansing City Pulse along for the ride, tipped off about the action and more interested in getting a story than in preventing the vandalism, the violence and anti-Muslim hatred being spewed by the lefties.
It's not surprising that gay rights activists would attack a mosque, though I am surprised:
The Iranian government is executing gay and bisexual men under the cover of rape and kidnapping charges, according to a major new investigation by Simon Forbes of the UK-based gay and lesbian human rights group OutRage!
Mr Forbes's nine-month investigation, published this week by OutRage!, is based on information gathered from sources inside Iran.It's no wonder Leftists are finally fed-up with Islam and have taken to trashing a mosque to show support for gays and lesbians. They could have gotten away with that kind of crap had they attacked a church, everyone knowing Christians would likely put up with it. But attacking a mosque shows some real daring. I have to admit I am surprised.
