David Morrision comments on an article that asks "Why Don’t Gay Activists Picket Mosques?" A commenter to the original article thought that it might be because of possible violence from Muslims in reaction to it. I think it goes a lot further than just that. When the Church issued via the CDF Considerations regarding proposals to give legal recognition to unions between homosexual persons there was a massive outcry in the media about homophobia. Yet when the Dalai Lama called homosexual activity "sexual misconduct" and also condemned oral and anal sex there was zero outcry. There is also no demand that the next Dalai Lama should be a women or outcries that Buddhist monks should be allowed to be married. There is I believe a back-handed compliment paid when Christianity, especially the Catholic Church, is attacked.
