Happy Hour News Briefs
Our old pal Rev. Fishsticks has been kicked off Twitter for hate speech:
We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for:
- Violating our rules against hateful conduct.
- You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.
(I’m not including Fishsticks’ tweet here because it was hateful against Muslims and the ‘mos.)
…and then he doubles down on it:
…Muslims have repeatedly thrown homosexuals off the top of tall buildings to their deaths, any number of which have been caught on tape. Homosexual conduct is a capital offense in Islam. (Here is a CNN report on the practice, lest you think I’m making this up: ISIS throws gay men off buildings.)
Meanwhile, Christians have started too numerous-to-count ministries and outreaches designed to help homosexuals escape the bondage and addiction of non-normative sexuality. LGBT activist bullies seek incessantly to shut these groups down, in large part because everyone who leaves the gay life is a living rebuke to the LGBT dogma that people are “born that way.”
Make no mistake about it, if theocrats like Fishsticks could get away with it, they would throw everyone who was not white, xristian, straight and cisgendered male off the tops of buildings, too. For Jeebus.
Good on Twitter, and I hope they keep that bigot off of their platform.
