CNN’s Sally Kohn has been attempting to school Donald Trump as of late on what exactly Sharia Law is. Not only in her well publicized CNN op/ed piece, but on social media as well.
Or as Kohn cites in her editorial;
“Every practicing Muslim — whether traditional or conservative or progressive — in some way follows Sharia,” says Wajahat Ali, a Virginia-based writer and creative director of Affinis Labs. “There’s no book called Sharia. You can’t rent it. It’s subject to human interpretation and is malleable, thus explaining how Muslims have existed for 1,400 years in nearly every society.”
Assumably, Kohn’s belief that “progressive Muslims” also adhere to Sharia. But keep in mind, it’s a kindler, gentler Sharia Law.
Perhaps in a move to force Kohn to figuratively put her money where her mouth is, the enigmatic Jon Lo has taken to Change.org in search of 15,000 signatures for his online petition.
As of press time, the petition officially tagged Spend one week in a country where Sharia is the law for LGBTQ-rights (without bodyguards), has garnered 11,403 in less than a week, and without much publicity.
Presumably twice dipped in the batter of sarcasm prior to deep frying Kohn’s hypocrisy, Lo’s petition states;
A lot of right-wing nazi bigots are saying Sally Kohn is an idiot for showing support for Sharia Law, especially considering that she is a gay woman. As progressives, we know both Sharia Law and Muslims are tolerant and very LGBTQ friendly.
In order to show how LGBTQ friendly the Sharia, and it’s practitioners, are, Sally Kohn should spend a week’s holiday proudly displaying her homosexuality in Raqqa/Riyadh or any other place where Sharia is the law of the land, without guards of course, to show how safe, and how pro LGBTQ these practitioners of Sharia Law are.
If Kohn really wants to stick by her principles, perhaps she’d consider spending in any of these 10 nations. By the way, Sally, all 10 are Sharia-compliant Muslim nations.
Oh, and they execute homosexuals.
