Cracks in the Leftist-Islamic Alliance: Hamas-linked CAIR Lobbies Hard Against LGBTQ Rights Bill

The Leftist-Islamic alliance, which has been rolling along without a hitch for many years now, has hit a pothole in the form of the Left’s mad quest to sexualize children and push trans fantasies upon them. Catholics and other Christians have been grateful for the help and excited about strengthening their new alliances with Muslim groups. They should be aware, however, that an alliance against a common foe will not override Islam’s teachings regarding Christianity.

Muslim group warns LGBTQ rights bill could encroach on religious liberty: ‘Cramming this legislation through’

by Joshua Q. Nelson, Fox News, March 2, 2023:

A Muslim advocacy group told Fox News Digital that an LGBTQ rights bill in Michigan is likely “unconstitutional” due to its encroachment on religious freedom.

The Counsel [sic] of American Islamic Relations [CAIR] launched a petition urging lawmakers to add religious protections to proposed amendments to the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (ELCRA), which seeks to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

The ELCRA has provided protections for Michiganders based on religion, race, sex and other demographics since 1976. LGBTQ advocates have been pushing to be included in the bill for years to ensure they don’t face discrimination.

However, while expanding the rights for LGBTQ members, the bill could remove protections for faith-based organizations that believe marriage is between one man and one woman, or biological differences between men and women.

“CAIR Michigan believes along with some other religious groups that have done the policy and the legal research that there are provisions of this bill that could be struck down as unconstitutional including that provision that requires that covenant,” CAIR-MI Staff Attorney Amy Doukoure told Fox News Digital.

The proposed amendment to ELCRA was introduced last month and received support from Democrats and Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

Doukoure said that officials are “cramming this legislation through” and “have not yet agreed to meet with their religious constituents that have religious concerns over this bill.”

Catholic and Protestant groups and Republicans also challenged the bill alongside Muslims. These groups are concerned that the bill could lead to discrimination against religious and conservative people, as well as expose them to potential lawsuits if they believe in the traditional marriage of one man and a woman and their views on biological differences between men and women.

Doukoure said that CAIR partnered with the Michigan Catholic Conference, which is the main lobbying and advocacy wing of the Catholic Church in Michigan, in calling for religious protections in the bill.

“They have a lot of lobbying power. They testified in front of the Senate about the Senate version of this bill,” she said.

“We work with them on a regular basis in matters where our interests align in the preservation of religious freedoms,” Doukoure said.

CAIR’s petition received more than triple the signatures than their goal of 500. The petition is intended to urge lawmakers to add reasonable language to any expansion of the ELCRA to provide religious protections in order to prevent “expensive and lengthy” litigation over First Amendment rights….

Fox News Digital has reached out to the sponsor of the bill, Jeremy Moses, for comment on Doukoure’s claims. Moses said that CAIR never reached out to his office. However, he said that he did have a meeting with the Michigan Catholic Conference and they “could not come to an agreement on amendment language.”…
