Yesterday I found this mysterious button on the street in Oakland:


“Allah Is Good. Allah Is Gay,” it says.

Hmmmmm. Who made this button, and for what purpose? And who would dare wear it in public? Are there out-of-the-closet gay Muslim activists in Oakland?

    In Bill Maher’s mostly abysmal movie “Religulous” there is a short clip on an openly gay bar in Amsterdam. . .and its two owners/patrons.

    The start of a clever limerick?

    Allah is good
    Allah is gay,
    Say something bad about Islam
    Islamofacists will take your life away!

    The End.

    Wow. Anyone wearing that has a death wish. Somebody should send that to good ole’ Mahmoud Amadinejad.

    Has to be something along the lines that “Allah is happiness” that got lost in the translation.

      

  7. 7Anonymous on Jan 9, 2009 at 10:34 pm:

    The bottom part of the button says (in a script that reminds me of the 60s): Gay Islam. Anybody else notice that?

      

  8. 8Stone k on Jan 10, 2009 at 6:18 am:

    Where did you find that?

    Good lord, don’t these people read the news?

    I am sure if they actualy paid attention they would see Homosexuality is a crime in most islamic states and even punishable by death in a few.

    Memories must be short in the east bay, because i still remember the “there are no gays in Iran” comment.

    Zombie, I’m sure you realize that there may be massive riots by The Religion Of Peace over this, possibly even by disaffected youths.

      

  11. 11DangerousNate on Jan 10, 2009 at 1:56 pm:

    Well, that’s one propagandists way to convert people to islam.

    I googled “gay muslims” and got 36,000 hits. It’s not exactly earth-shattering news that there are some gay Muslims out there. They even have a blog: gaymuslims.wordpress.com (though it hasn’t been updated in a while).

    And there are gay bars in Amsterdam and Paris, and presumably elsewhere, that have a mainly Arab/Muslim clientele.

      

  16. 16Steve on Jan 12, 2009 at 12:50 pm:

    Your comment on National Anarchy was pretty funny. So when you go that far left you end up on the far right. Does this mean political ideology is curved enough to fold back on its self? I think that might be the answer. But is it a sphere or a cylinder? So much to think about is political space time round in the 3d sense or 2d or maybe there are nth dimentions involved? Someone find a string theorists they might know.

      

  17. 17Anonymous on Jan 12, 2009 at 3:14 pm:

    What is so confusing about the button? Is it so hard to believe that there are gay Muslims out there??

      

  18. 18Anonymous on Jan 12, 2009 at 9:26 pm:

    Wrong Allah. The button is referring to Allah at Hot Air.

      

  19. 19Umar Gayallah on Jan 13, 2009 at 10:53 pm:

    Allah is gay and Allah is good. Islam is gay and makes jihad on non-homosexuals!

    Muhammad (Fagallah be please with him) said, “Make war upon the breeders and strive homosexually in the way of Allah!”

      

  20. 20Anonymous on Jan 14, 2009 at 5:30 pm:

    i think it say ‘Bay Allah’ not ‘Gay Allah’

      

  21. 21Mike on Jan 15, 2009 at 2:45 pm:

    Oakland, CA or Oakland, MI?

      

  22. 22beth elliott on Jan 16, 2009 at 4:10 pm:

    Oakland, California – right, Zombie? And gay Western converts to Islam, not those raised Muslim who have come out gay. Jack Fertig, f/k/a Sister Boom-Boom, is one of those converts.

    Go figure.

    Of course, when you think can pick a flavor of the month from the spiritual cafeteria, you think the orthodox adherents of the religion you pick will or should be as thrilled that you’re taking that approach as you are, and you think the flavors that aren’t very American are the only ones an enlightened progressive would pick … well, I don’t want to experience collateral damage from the inevitable fallout.

    The 2007 San Francisco Gay Freedom Day official program had a feature article on the entrapment and execution of young gay men in Iran, but there are none so blind as those who will not see.

    this is the trend and dont forget this you know this is true – most of us fear the muslims because we know that really kill if we offend them – a very stupid feeling

    this is the trend and dont forget this, you know this is true – most of us fear the muslims because we know that they really kill if we offend them – a very stupid feeling but its true, I have a feeling that some of them are tracking people who are expressing negative feelings about islam and someday.. they will kill.. yes they do.. that is why we are afraid!

      

  28. 28Anonymous on Feb 11, 2009 at 1:30 am:

    Yes, the legislators, officials, individual police officers, the media in Europe are afraid of the muslims because they know that the muslims will kill them, their kids and relatives. You know what, they won’t admit it publicly but they know it in their hearts that they are afraid. To be afraid of one’s or family member’s life loss is natural and logical. The stupid thing is.. we let is happen. We the majority.. the supposedly more powerful let it happen. Why? Accept it or not.. it is our Christian background – even if you claim that you are now Atheist. I am proud to be a Christian – a Baptist from the Philippines.

The first 6 tracks have all made it on to the top 100 Billboard. “Go Go Muhammed Rangers” was voted #1 on MTV’s TRL last week!!! Sooo goood!!!!111!!!!! 100% alight!

    Shame on you all who believe that Allah is different than the God who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between. Allah is God who created Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed (pbum). He also created every human, every animal, every atom, every breath that you take. Shame on you all whom you criticize and call Him names. Fear of Him is to fear for your eternal life. Love of Him is His love for you in your eternal life.
    Shame on you all who have no respect for your creator. How could you call your creator any word other than merciful.

    I’m afraid Mohammed is not a prophet, though he was a religious leader. Also war monger and pedophile, which are characteristics that don’t apply to Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses. Interesting you left out Jesus. Even Muslims acknowledge He was a prophet. But not you. So, if you don’t think Jesus is the equal of the other prophets you must be neither Muslim nor Christian.Just what are you:

    AI: Shame on you all who believe that Allah is different than the God who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between.Allah is God who created Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed (pbum).
