In an almost incomprehensible move and a complete and utter act of dangerous stupidity, the State department is hosting a gay pride party in Baghdad. In insulting Islam, they are putting American soldiers in harm's way.
The Washington Post reports: (hat tip Carl)
Change has certainly come to Baghdad. And it appears that includes the U.S. Embassy, where they are holding what the invitation says is the first-ever U.S. Embassy Gay Pride Theme Party next Friday at Baghdaddy's, which is the embassy employee association's pub.
The invitation says, "Prizes will be awarded for two contests: Best Dressed Gay Icon and Best Lip Synch Performance." Unclear what the prizes are, but don't forget to "order costume supplies now in time for May 29th," we're told. "For more info and costume ideas, check out the next edition of The Tigris Times."
The State Department turns itself inside out "not to insult Islam." They would happily hand over the Jews, American sovereignty and defense of the free world to satisfy the insatiable global jihad. Ahmadinejad, at Columbia University (at the invitation of the dhimmi leftist CU President Lee Bollinger), denied that homosexuality exists in his country -- when asked to explain the execution of homosexuals in Islam.
"In Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country," 'In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I don't know who's told you that we have this."
Of course they don't. They hang them all.
Obama is hellbent on "respecting Islam" even when "we don't agree". So how could his administration be so insensitive to Islam's repulsion and rejection of homosexuality? (That's why I always found "Queers for Palestine" to be an incredibly insane group. But I guess their Jew hatred trumps their necks.)
Clearly, this will mar Obama's outreach and "personal commitment" to the Muslim world - strange, particularly for an administration bent on promoting tolerance and "respect". If the Muslim world will not tolerate an unveiled woman ..... it is difficult to fathom their visceral reaction to this.
This puts US soldiers serving in Iraq in the cross hairs of retribution.
Bear in mind, all this plays out against a U.S. military that is burning hundreds of Bibles so as not to insult Islam.
