A Distinctly Unicultural Multicultural Event
Muslims in Calgary host The Power of Unity: Islam in a MultiCultural Canada. Just don't bother showing up if you're gay, Jewish, Christian, atheist, a woman who believes in equality of the sexes, or a sect of Islam that the hosts don't consider halal. You probably won't feel too welcome.
The ironically named conference - The Power of Unity: Islam in a MultiCultural Canada - is headlining Bilal Philips, who goes far beyond saying what many religious leaders believe about homosexuality being a sin. Philips, who has been barred from travelling to Germany, is on the record as saying all male homosexuals should face the "punishment for deviant behaviour . . . which is death."
