Rightwingers Heads Explode Over Lesbian Muslim Anti-extremist

This is just kind of sad. Irshad Manji, a Muslim, is a major critic of extremist Islam and a lesbian.

 So how do rightwingers deal with this opponent of Islamic extremism. Call her an apostate among other things. See these quotes:

She just doesn't seem to understand that, when you reject the teachings of a religion, you've rejected the religion, period.

Something like the "Catholics" who want to ordain woman priests in defiance of the Pope.

Nobody likes to call himself an apostate, but if the shoe fits ...

It's a man, baby! ;o)

I'd call her a Chapstick Lesbian.

United States President George W. Bush is Osama's worst nightmare. It's not this lipstick dyke that has Osama on the run.

The problem with the US rightwing and Bin Laden is that they have too much in common.  Each wants to have the monopoly on hate and intolerance and can't stand sharing the glory.
