I warned you about FIFA, the international soccer body’s choice of anti-Semitic, apartheid Islamic monarchical theocracy Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup. (See also, here.) And, now, my fears and warnings have already come to fruition, with FIFA chief, Sepp Blatter, telling gays how to behave in Qatar.
Dhimmi Sepp Blatter (w/Qatar’s Sheikh Hamad) to Gays: No Soup–or Sex–For You in Qatar
It’s interesting. The religious right–and conservatives like me–only want to maintain legal marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman. And the gay world goes nuts. But Muslims–and their dhimmi Sepp Blatter–tell gays that in more than a decade from now they still can’t have sex in Islamo-fascist Qatar and . . . crickets chirping except for a handful of gay activists from a little known gay organization. Sepp claims he was joking, but you be the judge:
FIFA boss Sepp Blatter has joked that gay people “should refrain from sexual activities” at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
The president of football’s international governing body was speaking at a news conference in South Africa, arranged to discuss the legacy of this year’s tournament.
He was asked what he would say to gay football fans who want to go to Qatar for the 2022 competition, given that homosexuality is banned in the Middle East country.
Grinning, he said: ‘I would say they should refrain from any sexual activities.’
Mr Blatter went on to insist that he believed discrimination would not be an issue in Qatar by 2022, saying ‘we are living in a world of freedom’.
Whatta moron. It’s a safe predication that homosexuality will still remain outlawed and punishable by death in Qatar in 2022, just as it is in 2010. The country has only gotten more extreme in the last decade. No reason it will go the other way in the next one.
American gay rights activist and former basketball star John Amaechi says the treatment of homosexuals in Qatar is not a laughing matter.
He has called on Mr Blatter to make an apology.
“It is the most childish response I could ever imagine, the fact that he would joke about something that is a serious issue,” he said.
“It’s not about people having sex in public and being sanctioned for it. It’s the fact that Qatar was one of 79 countries to sanction executing gays at the UN.”
Mr Blatter has said FIFA will not tolerate any form of discrimination and that he was sure everyone would be able to attend and enjoy the World Cup in Qatar.
PUH-LEEZE. If FIFA truly didn’t tolerate discrmination, it would never have even considered anti-Semitic, travel-apartheid Qatar for the World Cup.
Unlike Muslims, I think that what you do in your own bedroom is your business. I just don’t want it in my face (just as I don’t want straight people making out in my face, either) or legally sanctioned as marriage (or given special legal protections, unlike everybody else). Muslims, on the other hand, put gays to death. And an international soccer chief from liberal Europe gives his stamp of approval to this Islamic intolerance.
And no one cares. Or notices.
