I wonder if the whole hyper-arrogant-God's-gift-to-America spiel is just to make an on air persona anyway. Maybe the megalomania is just a ratings booster. Maybe he's really an inclusive, peace-loving guy. Maybe if you came to his house early in the morning he'd answer the door with tousled hair in an over-sized John Lennon T-shirt? It could be.
In any case, recently he pointed out the dilemma faced by those who so ardently promote gay "rights," and at the same time strain themselves to keep from offending Muslims, whom they view as a marginalized minority. The conundrum comes in realizing that homosexuality is considered an abomination in all forms of Islam (as has always been the case for Jews and Christians as well--at least for the first 1990 years of the history of Christianity). But now they can't compliment Peter without offending Paul.
Please understand, I don’t mean to be insensitive. Both of these groups are genuinely pseudo-minorities who suffer from an authentic pseudo-marginilazation. But, nonetheless, the simultaneous pursuit of liberation for both puts progressives in a progressively deepening bog.
With this in mind, Limbaugh suggested to any Christian or Jewish business owners—say, a wedding cake shop—that if a gay couple requests services for their wedding, the owners shouldn’t tell them supporting such a wedding would violate their consciences, but rather that they must decline the offer out of their respect for Islam.
I think there are a lot of activists who would feel in this situation like they’ve been told to find the corner in a silo.
