Where the Democrat Enthusiasm for Islamic Refugees May Take Us

CAIRO — A crackdown on gay people in Egypt intensified in recent days as security forces raided cafes in downtown Cairo and courts delivered harsh prison sentences, further driving the nation’s LGBT community underground.
More than 60 people have been arrested, human rights activists said, since a concert last month by a rock group where some members of the audience waved a rainbow flag — photos of which went viral on social media and caused public outrage.
Security forces have also detained people at their homes in the middle of the night, and have used apps and online chat rooms to entrap those believed to be gay. Some cafes frequented by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community have been shut down.
Regular readers know that I think America's embrace (including by most Republicans) of the LGBT movement was a serious mistake.  But 1950s American disapproval of homosexuality was fairly liberal compared to Islam's view.  Best of all, the articles suggests Christians are part of this.
