Gays or Muslims...
Same-Sex Books Removed From Schools After Moslem Anger
Bristol City Council said the two schools had been using the books to ensure they complied with gay rights laws which came into force last April.
They were intended to help prevent homophobic bullying, it said.
But the council has since removed the books from Easton Primary School and Bannerman Road Community School, both in Bristol.
Around 40 are said to have gathered at Easton to speak to staff and another 50 at Bannerman Road.
Members of the Bristol Muslim Cultural Society said parents were upset at the lack of consultation over the use of the materials.
He added: "In Islam homosexual relationships are not acceptable, as they are not in Christianity and many other religions but the main issue is that they didn't bother to consult with parents.
For years Liberals have counted on the vast majority of the gay and Muslim vote. The Liberals gave up on the Jews several years ago and many prominent (and not so prominent) Jews have been welcomed into the conservative fold. Now that Muslims (of course it is only the extremists) are demanding the removal of same-sex material from schools and liberals are obliging you have to wonder how much longer before gays start to feel more at home with conservatives.
Gc, you keep using that word, moderate. I do not think it means what you think it means. The views we consider moderate are not the majority position in the Muslim world. The radicals, like Hirsi Ali are the people we need to support. The radicals are the ones being killed by the majority.
The majority views in the Muslim world should scare you, if you knew about it. Ever hear of a gay pride parade in Mecca or Medina? Lastly Sharia, nuff said.

Those were not extremists demanding the removal of same-sex books from the libraries. They were ordinary muslims living in the community.
The views we consider moderate are not the majority position in the Muslim world.
Craig, you are the one who suggested that the majority of Muslims vote Liberal. If Muslims are still voting for the Liberals even after they legalized same sex marriage, then I would say they are moderate on that issue...more moderate than many Christians.
As for the extremists, if I were a Liberal I wouldn't want their vote.
Same sex marriage pretty much ensures that polygamy will eventually be legitimized in this country. We are not dealing with country bumpkins here, we are dealing with highly intelligent people who are systematically using the freedoms we grant to citizens to undermine our way of life. They write letters to the editors, they complain, they launch law suits. Lo and behold, they somehow manage to accomplish more than the much feared Christian right ever did. Who could have predicted this?
