The Quiet Americans,
HOW AMERICA’S GAY RIGHTS ESTABLISHMENT IS FAILING GAY IRANIANS
The strategic rationales are not especially compelling, but it is the moral argument that is particularly troubling, because it suggests that some gay and lesbian leaders feel more allegiance to the relativism of the contemporary left than they do to the universality of their own cause. Activists are more than willing to condemn the homophobic leaders of the Christian right for campaigning against gay marriage; but they are weary of condemning Islamist regimes that execute citizens for being gay. Something has gone terribly awry.
Gay Patriot says,
The problem for the American gay community is that our “establishment” no longer recognizes right from wrong. Only Red from Blue. And we know where their allegiance, money and time goes. It is not on behalf of moral absolutism, but political hackery.
Also at Gay Patriot, details on a Protest Outside Iranian Embassy In London Over Gay Torture (please note there’s a graphic photo at that post). As Roger L. Simon points out,
What’s no longer surprising is the absence of traditional, now increasingly reactionary, human rights organizations like Amnesty International. No Koran “flushings” – no money for them. Meanwhile real people die, real rights are abused beyond comprehension.
