The Western Journalism report’s title says it all: “Here’s A Contender For ‘Dumbest Tweet Of The Year’ When A CNN Lib Says THIS About Sharia Law“. The title referenced a tweet by CNN’s Sally Kohn that defended Sharia law.
Homosexuals are beheaded, hanged and stoned in modern Saudi Arabia and Iran….Five other Muslim countries also have the death penalty on their books for homosexual behavior. In the past, gays were burned.
As one cleric recently put it, the only point of theological debate is not whether the homosexual should be killed, but how it should be done.
In 2016, an educated imam in Tunisia explained that while it may seem harsh, there is not ambiguity about this in Islam:
God is very straightforward about this — not we Muslims, not subjective, the Sharia is very clear about it, the punishment for homosexuality, bestiality or anything like that is death. We don’t make any excuses about that, it’s not our law — it’s the Quran.”
An imam also preached openly in an Orlando mainstream mosque about the duty to murder gays as an act of love and compassion.
She would never defend Christianity like this.
If any conservative on the American political scene came close to suggesting anything good about religion-based foreign law that treats women like animals and gays even worse, he would be disowned by every American political movement from the Democratic National Committee to the Westboro Baptist Church.
But let a liberal loose on Twitter — with an outrageous dislike for conservatives and an utter contempt for the truth — and you get CNN’s Sally Kohn, along with her ludicrous social media posting Tuesday that was drawing even more contempt than Kohn usually elicits from the saner side of the political aisle.
As a lesbian who wears her gay activism on her sleeve, Kohn often jumps to the defense of those she feels are persecuted minorities. The CNN political commentator — and a lawyer, by trade — has now explicitly sided with allegedly “progressive” Muslims who somehow share values with Western liberals, while still embracing the bloodthirsty, medieval and utterly barbarous civil code known as Sharia law that governs too many of the world’s people.
Hey @realDonaldTrump, many *progressive Muslims* — the ones we should support in ideological fight against extremism — believe in Sharia!!

(Note the double exclamation point. That means she’s dead serious.)
The people we should support in the ideological fight against extremism believe in Sharia? That’s like saying the people we should have supported during the Cold War believed in communism!…..
