LETS JUST TALK?


Pacifists and Liberals in general are an interesting group to follow. They make grand pronouncements of ideology, promoting dialog as the solution to everything. The "if we all could just get along and sit down and talk" mantra is heard often, particularly when wars go longer than expected, as the war with Iraq. But it is Iran that intrigues me today, as I have read and heard many a liberal bring out the lets talk card, concerning Iran. A view that discounts the reality that is the Islamic strategy of lying to its enemies to further their agenda of worldwide conquest. I am wondering today if that is still the goal of the left, given the recent discovery of Iran's position on homosexuality, one of causes of the left. From the wires;

"Homosexuals deserve to be executed or tortured and possibly both, an Iranian leader told British MPs during a private meeting at a peace conference, The Times has learned.
Mohsen Yahyavi is the highest-ranked politician to admit that Iran believes in the death penalty for homosexuality after a spate of reports that gay youths were being hanged.
Sharia’s Victims

2005

— Homosexuals Farbod Mostaar and Ahmad Chooka sentenced to death. Iran said Chooka had kidnapped, knifed and raped a student

Two men executed in public after being found guilty of a homosexual relationship. A newspaper said they were convicted of sodomy, rape and kidnapping"

I could go on and on with examples, but the reality is that this is how homosexuals are treated in Iran. I wonder if the left still believes it should simply sit down and talk with these who do such things to people because of their struggle with sin? Will the left, now that one of their fundamental causes is being handled this way, still take the road of dialog? I am sure they would, if the issue were only nuclear weapons that could terrorize a region and even the world, but now that homosexuality is on the table, now this could be a serious problem.

And again we are given a clear difference between followers of Christ and followers of Mohamed. Mohammed's disciples kill homosexuals, while followers of Jesus Christ share the gospel and pray for them!
