George Michael Was ‘Addicted to Drugs With Homosexual Tendencies,’ Says Arabic Huffington Post


I'm really not looking for trouble. But when Christians and Republicans say shit like this we have a baby. When Muslims do it, it feels like we bend over backwards to look the other way. 

The article went further into Michael’s sexual “tendencies” and mentioned his previous struggles with drugs, recounting instances he was seen under the influence of drugs. The piece also pointed out Michael’s opposition to the war in Iraq in 2003. Only in the last paragraph did it finally mention Michael’s success as a musician. It’s unclear why the site decided to focus on the artist’s sexuality, drug problems and politics—particularly after the singer’s longtime manager Michael Lippman told the media that the cause of death was believed to be heart failure.
Why aren't more liberals -- besides Bill Maher and me -- outraged about the way the Islam treats the LGBT community? (Did any of you see "Out of Iraq"?) 

Happy to see that at least some readers objected on social media. I've reached out to the editorial director of Huffington Post Voices to see if he had any comment, or whether the U.S. has any say in the Arabic outpost. His answer? No on both fronts.

P.S. Not sure if that translation is off, but can drugs have homosexual tendencies, besides tina? 

UPDATE: 


More double standards. Israel banned a public service announcement that supported marriage equality and it is being called out on it -- as it should. Read HERE.

UPDATE 2:


Apparently some Christians have tried to criticize George's life choices and guess what? People are PUSHING BACK at these morons. What do you make of that?
