Head of Christian College: When You See LGBTQ, “Replace Those Letters With ISIS”

Mar 21, 2018

By Hemant Mehta

Everett Piper is the President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and one of the original signers of the Nashville Statement, a document that set in stone all the different flavors of Christian bigotry against LGBTQ people.

But in a recent op-ed piece for the conservative Washington Times, Piper went way beyond Bible-based hate. In an effort to show everyone why we shouldn’t even have a conversation about LGBTQ rights — since his God says homosexuality is wrong, period — he offers this thought experiment:

If you’re still not feeling a bit unstable on this slippery slope, I recommend this simple exercise: Go to any article in any magazine or website that argues for “conversations” about sexual morality and simply replace the acronym of the day with another set of letters.

For example, every time you see LGBTQ in an article, simply replace those letters with ISIS. Change nothing else. Do this throughout the entire column in question.

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.

No…

What that shows is how simple-minded bigots are.

  • @OP- Go to any article in any magazine or website that argues for “conversations” about sexual morality and simply replace the acronym of the day with another set of letters.

    For example, every time you see LGBTQ in an article, simply replace those letters with ISIS.

    Go to any god-deluded bigot who replaces designations of scientific and medical evidence, with acronyms of murderous religio-political ideology,

    In doing this, something will quickly become quite obvious.

    . . . .. and realise the Dunning-Kruger self-confident ignorance which is on display, – is falsely equating different challenges to his god-delusion’s dogmatism, – and marvel that such an ignoramus, with no self-education or research capabilities, . . . . . . .

    (Everett Piper is the President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University)

    . . . .. . could actually be appointed to a senior position in a supposed university institution which claims to be “educational” – teaching the skills of competently researching and presenting honest information!

    Let’s just apply his bigoted methodology to himself!

    Everett Piper is the President of the ISIS University training camp.. . . In an effort to show everyone why we shouldn’t even have a conversation about Wesleyan rights — since Allah says Wesleyan Christianity is wrong, period.

    The mental disabilities of faith-thinking from bigotry, are only too obvious!

    The rantings of this sexually and biologically uneducated, closed-minded, deluded idiot, show parallels with the Trump administration’s pathetic attempts at senior government science department appointments!

  • There are patterns among the faith-thinker-bigots, with their strongly held, but irrational views!

    In this OP instance, a biology illiterate ignoramus, is pontificating as an apparent “expert head of a university”, on medical conditions in LGBTQ minorities, with self-important airs of pseudo-morality and pseudo-authority!

    There are similar superstitious assertive posturings from the bigoted medically illiterate, so-called “pro-life”, anti-abortion fanatics with their unlicensed, fake, pregnancy advisory clinics!!

    or on this link below – the murderous sacred cow worshippers!

    A court in the northern Indian state of Jharkhand has sentenced 11 men to life in prison for lynching a Muslim meat trader last year.

    Alimuddin Ansari, 55, was beaten to death by the men for transporting beef.

    This is the first time India has convicted anyone for “cow vigilantism”, despite a spate of attacks on Muslim meat traders in the last few years.

    Hindus consider cows sacred and killing them is illegal in several states, including Jharkhand.

    Incidents of cow vigilantism have become increasingly common in India, but police investigations have often led to acquittals of those accused.

    Once theocrats achieve power the abuses proliferate, as bigots feel more empowered as authorities turn a blind eye, or frustrate law enforcement!

    Ever since the rise to power of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party in the summer of 2014, vigilante cow protection groups have been emboldened, leading to numerous attacks on Muslims and Dalits (formerly untouchables), for whom beef is a staple.

    One of the most high-profile incidents occurred in Rajasthan last year, when a dairy farmer, Pehlu Khan, was beaten to death by cow vigilantes affiliated with ring-wing Hindu groups.

    The chief minister of BJP-ruled Rajasthan offered condolences over his “demise” without mentioning the fact that he had been murdered.
    And a BJP lawmaker said he had “no regret” over the killing because Mr Khan was a “cow-smuggler”.

    Police registered a murder case and made a number of arrests, but no one has yet been convicted.

    About a dozen people have been killed in such attacks so far. Targets are often picked based on unsubstantiated rumours and Muslims have been attacked for even transporting cows for milk.

    Human Rights Watch said here had been at least 38 such attacks last year, and 10 people killed.

    Perhaps some training from the more enlightened Pakistanis could educate him!

    Pakistan Hires World’s First Transgender Anchor, Twitterati Applauds The Move

    A journalist linked to BBC tweeted a picture of a Maavia Malik and wrote: “Pakistan’s first transgender newscaster on screen now.”

    The report of a transgender person appearing on TV as a newscaster received a positive response on Twitter and congratulatory messages poured in for Maavia.

    Maavia Malik has also walked the ramp for the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week.

    Pakistan’s Senate, the upper house of country’s parliament, recently approved a bill for the protection of transgender persons, empowering them to determine their own gender identity
