    Richard Dawkins Slams Authorities for Pulling 'Allah Is Gay' Sign at London Satisfaction Parade, Yet Not 'Jesus Is Gay'

    On July 23, the renowned atheist and also evolutionary biologist tweeted, \"London gay Pride march. Police pleased with 'Jesus is Gay' banners. But outlawed @theCEMB's 'Allah is Gay' banner. @KPFA- quality hypocrisy!\".

    The CEMB resembled Dawkins' observation on its website, explaining that the Satisfaction Parade was \"filled with placards saying 'God is Gay,' 'Jesus had 2 papas,' as well as those mocking the church as well as clergymans as well as pope.\" Yet, when CEMB members held signs saying\" Allah is Gay\", the cops assembled \"to attempt to eliminate them for causing 'infraction.'\"

    \" The only reasons our indicators are seen to be 'provocative' are because criticism of Islam is deemed to be impermissible, because there is the continuous danger of physical violence by Islamists versus ex-Muslims yet also dissenting Muslims and also others in order to silence as well as censor, and also due to the fact that criticism of Islam as well as Islamism is incorrectly merged with an attack on Muslims,\" the CEMB stated.

    \" Doubters say our presence in Satisfaction is a justification in the weeks following the strike at Finsbury Park. Yet why must our objection be connected to an attack on a mosque? Did any individual tell those holding 'Jesus had two papas' signs that it was a justification considered that a clergyman was killed in Normandy and Christians eliminated in Egypt? There is no link, except obviously it seems when it pertains to Islam.\"

    In action to the group's indicators, the East London Mosque filed a protest versus Britain's Council of Ex-Muslims, declaring that the group was \"inciting hatred towards Muslims.\"

    Salman Farsi, a spokesman for the East London Mosque, told Britain's Night Criterion his mosque's choice to file a complaint against CEMB was based on the idea the indicator constituted a threat:

    \" We have actually increased a problem with the co-chairs of the event [London Satisfaction] that the group [CEMB] was inciting hatred versus Muslims, as well as in particular to our reputation, based on absolutely groundless reasons.

    \" Our religion doesn't advertise disgust or homophobia. Yes, there might be theological subjects taking care of homosexuality in Islam, yet that's clearly really separate from advertising hatred and also homophobia.\"

    At The Same Time, Berkley, The golden state, radio station KPFA terminated an appearance by the Dawkins, arranged for August 9, after the \"God Deception\" author utilized \"violent speech versus Islam\" that \"offended and also pain ... many people\".

    \" We had actually scheduled this occasion based entirely on his superb brand-new book on science when we really did not know he had angered and also hurt - in his tweets and other comments on Islam, many individuals.\"

    \" KPFA does not support upsetting speech. While KPFA absolutely supports significant free speech, we do not support abusive speech. We excuse not having had broader knowledge of Dawkins sights a lot earlier.\"

    In turn, Dawkins claimed that he had actually \"never made use of abusive speech against Islam\", including that while he has actually called Islamism \"disgusting\", Islamism is not the same as Islam.

    \" I have criticized the appalling misogyny and homophobia of Islam, I have actually slammed the killing of apostates for no crime besides their disbelief. Much from attacking Muslims, I comprehend - as perhaps you do not - that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the overbearing cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim females,\" created the author in his reaction. \"I am referred to as a constant critic of Christianity as well as have never been de-platformed for that. Why do you provide Islam a free pass? Why is it great to slam Christianity yet not Islam?\"
