  1. In the interests of fair & accurate journalism, this reader would like to state that Mark Ames did apologise for his comments on Thursday, July 1st.

    “I would like to make an unreserved apology to all Muslims whom I offended by my post on my Facebook wall,” he told in a statement.

  2. Mr Ames is entirely entitled to his opinion – but come on – when was journalism ever Fair or Accurate….

    oh God NO , lets leave religion out of this , it is what got us into this mess in the first place, 2000 years of oppression is enough .

  4. Sorry Mark, but in my opinion, that’s a blatant cop-out.
    I think you’ve been got at, and the lefty gay mafia have frightened you into backing down. Muslims are a serious threat to gay people, and until they get their own house in order, I see no reason why you can’t boycott them.

    The socialists love to cherry-pick their fights. They will attack a few people that go fox-hunting because it is all about class, and damn all about animal cruelty. However, when it comes to complaining about the treatment of hundreds of thousands of animals that are hung alive by their back legs and have their throats slit, as practiced by Halal and Kosher butchers, nobody says squat, for fear of upsetting our wonderful “multicultural society”. These lefty whingers are just full of sh!t.

  5. “A small majority of Christians are homophobic but most aren’t” What the hell’s that supposed to mean? It’s gibberish! Did this woman ever study basic grammar at school or was she too busy reading her tracts of received ‘wisdom’? Bollocks.

    Typical idiocy. These people are our allies and put their support behind us despite the consequences they’ll face in their own communities. And what do they get for their trouble? They get jeered by idiotic bigots for being “guilty by association”. No, doesn’t even matter if they aid the LGBT community, doesn’t matter how much good they do as individuals – they were brought up muslim, so they all get tarred with the same brush.

    We could do with less of this stupidity. Homophobic imams are as much the fault of the average muslim as China’s human rights abuses are the fault of us atheists.

  7. Actually I think it’s nice to hear from our gay muslim bros and sisters. I honestly didn’t realise they would be so vocal and stand up for themselves. Good for you guys, maybe Mr Ames was more referring to the types of muslim extremists who are killing our troops and Afghan people alike, and his hot-headed words didn’t take into account gay muslims. But at least it proves they are out there and hav a voice.
