According to FoxNews, 25 Muslim drivers dispatched to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are refusing to drive cabs adorned with advertising for the Gay Games, which will be held on Aug. 9-16 in the region.
The drivers said that their decision was based on their religious convictions.
Ann Gynn, a spokeswoman for the Gay Games, said the protest is an “isolated” case, meaning that drivers of other religions (especially Christianity, considering that this religion is still dominant in the U.S.) did not complain about making involuntary propaganda for the “gay” event. “This was a decision by those individual cab drivers. It was a personal decision,” she said.
Can you imagine 25 Christian drivers refusing to participate in “gay” propaganda with no media, government and “gay” harassment? I can imagine taxicab companies firing 25 Christian drivers for “hate” and “discrimination”!
America has a dominant cultural status and role in the world. In recent years, she has signaled that it is OK to impose the “gay” agenda on other nations. And she has given her own personal example, with Christians being punished at mere whims of gay activists and their government and media allies.
American Christians have been punished as if America were 97% homosexuals and less than 3% Christians.
American Christians have been punished just for standing up for traditional marriage. The recent case of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich losing his job because years ago he donated for traditional marriage shows that the cultural dictatorship prevalent in America today will allow no dissent — that is, Christian dissent.
A couple of gay activists want to “marry” and they chose a Christian shop to take pictures of their immoral ceremony? In America, you are not free to refuse — not if you are a Christian.
This is the (wicked) example America has set for the world see and follow.
Yet, in the case of the Muslim cab drivers, there is other example set. If you are a Muslim, there is an exception. There are “personal” and “religious” freedoms that should be respected — only in the Muslim case. In fact, I have seen no “gay”publication and website protesting the Muslim decision. No “gay” activist talked about lawsuits and the U.S. media, habitually hysterical and fiercely opposed to Christians rejecting “gay” impositions, have remained silent. No criticism at Muslims and their “personal” and “religious” decisions.
In today’s America, I cannot see a Muslim Brendan Eich losing his job because Muslim convictions reject homosexuality. I cannot see any other Muslims losing their jobs, because, in their case, there is no systematic bullying from “gay” activists and their powerful allies.
My point is this: What is America trying to teach the world? That Christians are out of luck and Muslims are entitled to exceptions?
As a Brazilian I have these worries because the socialist establishment in Brazil, usually trained in U.S. universities, and Brazilian “gay” activists, also trained in the U.S., just love to mimic American socialist trends, whereas Muslims are entitled to “personal” and “religious” decisions and Christians are worthy of unemployment and other Western cultural, social and legal maladies because of their ethical and moral convictions.
What will they — and many others around the world — learn from the American example? Convert to homosexuality or Islam to be protected from insane Western cultural, social and legal harassment?
