The iconic Beverly Hills Hotel has been the location for a lavish A-list Night Before Oscar party since 2003. Those days are over now that Hollywood has taken a rare and righteous stand against the horrors of Sharia Law.
The Beverly Hills Hotel is owned by the Dorchester Collection, which is owned by the Sultan of Brunei. Brunei is a smallish Islamic country in Southeast Asia that, according to the Hollywood Reporter, recently enacted laws “that call for violent punishment, including amputation and death by stoning, against those engaging in same-sex activity and extramarital sexual relations and those committing adultery.”
While Hollywood has been stridently gutless for years when it comes to singling out and attacking Christians for their perfectly reasonable defense of traditional marriage, there has been little to no outcry from the industry when it comes to the very real persecution of gays (and other groups) at the hand of Islamic militants.
If nothing else, by constantly kowtowing to a phony Islamic civil rights group like the Hamas-backed CAIR, Hollywood has been seen by many as soft on actual human and gay rights. When you ignore the terrible reality of Sharia Law while beating up on Christians, you don’t look like you’re pro-gay rights; you look like a coward, hypocrite, and Christian-hater.
Hopefully, rather than using gay rights as a weak and hypocritical excuse to single out and beat up on conservative Christians, this is the first step of a Hollywood that will use its awesome power to call attention to the very real and tragic horrors homosexuals face in Islamic countries.
