For John, BLUF: We are accidentally betraying our liberal values. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Near the end of the article the author writes:
Indeed. The point, wrote Hurd, is clear: according to contemporary progressive ideology, Muslims are higher on the victim scale than gays. Period. Actual events don't enter into this calculus. Gay rights only matter when the offenders against those rights are people even lower on the totem pole than gays – for example, the aforementioned Christian bakers. When gays are butchered by Muslims, the only proper progressive response is silence.Human and civil rights pecking order.
