Bigotry In Numbers

Muslims have been protesting outside Parkfield Primary School in Birmingham since the end of last month. They are angry that the school is insisting that the children are taught about equality, including LGBT equality.

One of the parents, Fatima Shah says she has taken her ten-year-old daughter out of the school over the lessons.

She told BirminghamLive: ‘It’s inappropriate, totally wrong. Children are being told it’s OK to be gay yet 98 per cent of children at this school are Muslim. It’s a Muslim community.’

This is the main reason I fear Islam or, to be exact, fear the numerical growth of its adherents in England. The larger the “Muslim community” becomes, the more influential it will become as the UK is a democracy. There will come a time, in fact, it may already have arrived, when politicians will offer Muslim voters concessions to their unenlightened and downright bigoted cultural beliefs in order to gain their support at the polls. At that point, human rights in the U.K., especially those concerning equality of women and LGBT people, will start to be eroded rather than strengthened.

Of course, there are LGBT Muslims and progressive Muslims and some do courageously speak out, but the truth is they are lost in the crowd. Nearly all Muslims in the UK are homophobic and they feel no shame in proclaiming their condemnation and hatred of LGBT people loudly and publicly.
