Cognitive dissonance

I am trying to imagine the coming American "utopia", where everyone will be compelled to publicly accept the moral neutrality of homosexual acts, traditional Christian teachings on the subject will be excluded from the the marketplace of ideas, but an enormous cultural carve-out will be made for Muslim sensibilities. If Islamist radicals shoot up a gay pride parade, will the incident simply be considered a moral wash, or will gays actually be expected to apologize for provoking their assailants?

Halp me Garrie Trudoe I'm stuk hear in america and cant figyour out all this morul relativizm!

You know it's coming. A jihadi attack on a gay parade, or some other gathering of gays.

The liberal heads popping will sound like someone walking on bubble wrap.

One thing though. Don't underestimate the animal-like cunning of some who grew up in tribal Middle East. They seem to always play one group off against another over there to create new alliances, and may just be smart enough not to show their true face till it's too late for liberals being used, to change. That's what worries me.

I think I would put money on this : the journolisters won't mention any particular religion and blame the "conservative" shooters while gays will be victims of hate/overheated rhetoric and muslims will be said to fear that perpetually mentioned backlash.
