These students clearly have the wrong religion in mind. In ‘moderate’ Indonesia, authorities recently arrested 58 men at a gay sauna, and they face up to 10 years in prison. For more of Islam’s ‘tolerance’ towards homosexuality, visit The Circumvent’s other articles.
Christianity’s influence on many marginalised communities has been damaging in its methods of conversion….
Methods of conversion? Like Islam’s three-pronged decision either to convert, die, or live as a persecuted dhimmi? Christian cannot compare.
Also, Oxford? Isn’t that one of the universities — ah, yes it is! — that invited radical Islamic speakers like “Moazzam Begg, director of Cage, an organisation which once described Jihadi John as a ‘beautiful young man'” to their campus?

The decision was revealed in a leaked email chain that has sparked fury across the college.
Vice president Frederick Potts told Christian union representatives: ‘Christianity’s influence on many marginalised communities has been damaging in its methods of conversion and rules of practice.
‘It is still used in many places as an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism.’
Organisers also claimed that the popular fair was a ‘secular space’ and that they ‘didn’t want to monopolise the presence of any individual faith’, reports the Cherwell student newspaper.
But last night furious students passed a motion condemning the ban as a ‘violation of free speech and religious freedom’.
It stated: ‘The Balliol JCR (student union) should not make judgements regarding the legitimacy of faith groups or religious expression.’
The motion prohibits officials from barring any official religious societies from taking part in the fresher’s fair in future.
Eventually organisers agreed to allow a shared multi-faith stall with leaflets but no representatives of religious groups were allowed to attend the event.
Student union president Hubert Au claimed the decision had been reached through discussions with the Christan society.
But that comment was described as ‘misleading’ by a representative for the group, which refused to provide literature for the event….
