University leader in Oklahoma linked LGBT people to ISIS


The comments come from Everett Piper, the president of the ultra-conservative evangelical Oklahoma Wesleyan University. Writing for a right-wing newspaper the man lashed out at LGBT people saying they were the same as extremists. “For example, if there is no moral compass other than ‘conversation’ to give us direction concerning the morality of same-sex intercourse then why not have a ‘conversation’ about consensual pederasty? Why not discuss the merits of adultery? Why not have dialogue about how those who identify as incestuous need ‘safe spaces’ where they can be affirmed, and loved for who they are?” he asks. First of all, child abuse (that is what he probably meant by pederasty) cannot be consensual because even when children say that they agree upon it (because they are afraid and easy to manipulate by cruel adults) it does not mean that they understand WHAT they agree upon. As for incest, it is bad, just bad for both heterosexual and homosexual relationships, it leads to terrible consequences (and we probably need to devote a separated article to it, but not now). To make people agree with his opinion, he advised to replace the acronym LGBT with ISIS referring to articles in press. “In doing this, something will quickly become quite obvious. Sentences will emerge such as these: ‘Love is love and ISIS has the right to love who they want to love’. ‘The ISIS community simply wants to be accepted and affirmed.’ ‘What right does anyone have to refuse to bake a cake for an ISIS wedding?’ As such absurdities jump off the page, hopefully, it becomes clear how absolutely ridiculous our culture’s game of sexual politics has become.” What has become clear that if ISIS wanted just to love each other and to be a part of our society as LGBT people do, we would avoid a lot of tragedies.
