Meme Concept: Homophobia = Crypto-Islamic Fundamentalism

A random idea I came up with: Accuse homophobes of being Crypto-Islamic fundamentalists wanting to impose Sharia law on the free world.

It's not true, but it's plausible enough for a joke:

Islamic fundamentalist theocracies commonly have anti-homosexual laws on a religious basis, and our "crypto" friends also want anti-homosexual laws on a religious basis.

Islamic theocracies also commonly require women by law to wear highly concealing clothing on the premise that all men are sexual predators with no willpower to resist a revealed ankle. In my experience, homophobes have heavy, heavy overlap with people who issue apologia for man-on-woman rape by claiming the woman was dressing provocatively, thus, in effect, claiming that men should not be expected to have the willpower to control themselves.

I think this meme has shock value since it draws attention to the worst similarities between the allegedly "good" Christian fundamentalists and the obviously evil Islamic fundamentalists.

Of course, I expect that a typical response will be a temporary alliance of convenience with radical Islam to fight the evil of our consistent morality. In such a case, it'd be interesting to see what happens if one of us were to quote the "crypto" in a separate thread where he denounces Islam.

There is an article here about The Quranist's Role in Combatting Islamic Fundamentalism which I think you might find relevant and interesting.

Wow, the stupid is strong, there.

Why don't you try NOT being cute with silly videos and just say what you want to say? Are you so ashamed of your opinion that you have to hide behind random images?

Asfora: How is that relevant to what Bronze Dog talks about in the post? I don't follow.

Peace. Valhar2000 I thought the link was relevant because it seems like Islamic Fundamentalism is something that needs to be combatted and the link I gave shows that Quranism has a role to play. Hope that helps. By the way: Just to let you know about the new re-vamped Quranists Welcome Pack thanks :)
