Yes, white “rationalists,” tell me more about your Enlightenment values:

In a recent BBC report on homosexual Muslims in the UK, one interviewee described an experience she had at a gay pride rally. She says, “There was an occasion at gay pride once where one of the marchers turned round and quite crudely said, ‘We didn’t know pride was allowing suicide bombers on the march’ — it was really shocking to hear that from a fellow gay marcher.” The intersection of an affirmative declaration of gay and Muslim identifications runs into ascriptive identification of Muslims as terrorists.

—Hussein Rashid, in the Muslim LGBT Inclusion Project final report. (via) The intersection of an affirmative declaration of gay and Muslim identifications runs into the inherent bigotry of pasty-white British liberalism.
