While marching in gay pride parades and declaring himself a staunch ally of LGBT Canadians, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government turns a blind eye to perhaps the greatest threat against that community: radical Islam.
A new video compiled by the American Center for Democracy, a free speech advocacy group, features dozens of top Canadian Muslim organizations, leaders, and written texts openly calling for the death of gays, advocating Muslim conversion therapy, and comparing homosexuals and transgenders to child molesters, serial killers, and demons.
Trudeau’s government has enacted ‘hate speech’ laws in Canada that opponents say came at the behest of Muslims seeking to curtail public criticism of Islam. While those hate speech laws have threatened to target individuals who misgender people, they appear to openly allow direct threats of violence against transgenders and gays if those threats are coming from prominent Muslims.
In the ACD video, Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, a Canadian Muslim scholar, says:
It becomes a problem. Delaying marriage… Once we delay it [marriage] brings in [moral] corruption. Worse than that, you end up with lesbianism, homosexuality gets born out of those circumstances.
Abdullah Hakim Quick, Vice President of the Canadian Council of Imams, says:
What is the position of Islam on homosexuality? They ask me. So the newspaper, right? So I said: put my name in the paper. The position is death. And we cannot change Islam.
In another lecture, Shabir Ally, the President of the Islamic Information & Dawah Centre International in Toronto, says:
So some say, no but we cannot help it. How do you mean you cannot help it? This is the continual call of the Satan.
Satan tells the child molester you cannot help yourself you have to molest children. You see the show Criminal Minds? It is shown here the criminal mind.
