Gay Rights March to Mecca

H/T GatewayPundit

I think this is a great idea... it's great that those who don't support our efforts to transform the middle east and bring them out of the dark ages are finally recognizing the true danger that Islamofascism represents to our way of life - and particularly their way of life.

The March to Mecca

HELLO EVERYONE. I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I've been very busy working on my book and television and web projects. However, after receiving this press release from the Huffington Post, I had no choice but to return. This is an absolutely fantastic idea, and I urge everyone to participate.

PRESS RELEASE
EMBARGO DATE: December 15, 2006, 4 PM.

IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM AND TOLERANCE, AND IN HARMONY WITH OUR GAY MUSLIM BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WE PROUDLY ANNOUNCE THE FIRST MARCH TO MECCA, FEBRUARY 14, 2007

Human Rights Watch, Moveon.org, ACT-UP, the Huffington Post and David Geffen are proud to present the March to Mecca, a celebration of peace that calls all gay brothers, sisters and people undergoing sex-reassignment to march to the holiest of holy cities, Mecca, the capital city of Saudi Arabia's Makkah province on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2007.

The march, a brainchild of activists and celebrities who acknowledge that more gays are dying from Islamic fundamentalism than from the policies of George W. Bush, will begin 12 noon sharp in Jeddah, the stunning night-life friendly Saudi Arabian city located on the coast of the Red Sea.

"Not marching in these countries, in this era of terror, seems cowardly," says event co-organizer
Sharon Stone. "I'm embarrassed to say at social gatherings I even blamed the United States for
everything. But I realized it's the radical Muslims - not the US - who want gays dead, and for that I am truly sorry."

Paris' gay Socialist Mayor Bertrand Delanoe, who was stabbed by an immigrant Muslim, is organizing the European contingency which features Limahl, Johnny Hallyday and Ciccolina. Whoopie Goldberg, along with Robin Williams will be hosting the kick off party at the Sheraton Riyadh. There will be refreshments and karaoke, hosted by David Hyde Pierce.

Beth Ditto, lead singer of the Gossip, who will perform with the newly reformed Yaz, thinks the march is overdue. "Forget right wing Christians. They don't hang gays for being gay. Islamofascists do. That's why were asking moderate, non-violent Muslims across the Western Province to join hands and embrace gay people everywhere."

"Almost half of all Muslim countries outlaw gay relations," says Huffington Post contributor Gene Stone, "and more than 70 countries ban all homosexuality, sometimes making it punishable by death. And here I am, blogging about how bad Renew America is. LOL."

"Think about the two teenagers convicted of homosexuality who were hanged in Iran last year," says Harry Shearer, "It makes all the hay we made over Mark Foley at the Huffington Post seem stupid. I, for one, am tired of being part of the problem."

The March to Mecca will snake through the sandy, sunny valley of Abraham, and it is urged that you pack sunblock and plenty of bottled water. "Don't forget to blog!" adds co-sponsor Arianna Huffington. After the march, Rep Barney Frank of the U.S. House of Representatives will host a special VIP rave on the Queen Boat, a floating disco on the Nile. Hugh Jackman will perform hits from "The Boy From Oz."

However... do they really think that a march is going to be effective? I mean, after a few hours, it's highly likely that everyone will be rounded up and thrown in jail by "our friends," the Saudis. And I hope that the marches aren't serious if they think they're going to get anywhere close to Mecca... If they really want to make a statement, they should try to go to the Holy Mosque... and perhaps carry some Bibles with them or something.

Because non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the city:
Non-Muslims are not permitted to enter Mecca.[1] Road blocks are stationed along roads leading to the city.

And you can be thrown in jail or simply beheaded if you bring a Bible into the country.

We'll have to send in Delta Force to rescue everyone after they pull a Khaleed Centanni and convert to Wahhabism, but at least it'll put things into perspective for them.

Let me put it this way... a "Gay Rights March to Mecca" is about as simple-minded and effective as a "Jewish Rights March to Berlin" in 1944.

Just don't see this guy making it very close to Mecca... And not just because he doesn't appear to keep to his training regime.



Or wait, perhaps this article from The Onion???
