Mussulmen who can’t spell

Inspired by some absurdly illiterate recent hate posters, Frit’s latest book is entitled “Mussulmen who can’t spell”. Sadly, this is now being withdrawn from the shops throughout Europe because Frit learns that, if all goes as planned, the 27 member states of the European Union will soon have a common hate crime legislation that will turn disapproval of Islamic practices or homosexual lifestyles into crimes. The directive's definition of discriminatory harassment is so broad that every objection to Islamic or homosexual practices will be considered unlawful!

Frit opposes the introduction of this legislation on the grounds that those in society who most object to homosexual lifestyles are Mussulmen. Thus the legislation specifically singles out Mussulmen, especially homosexual Mussulmen who by definition must either disapprove of their own lifestyles and are thus committing a crime, or must disapprove of the Islamic practice of disapproving of their lifestyles and are thus committing a different crime. This law is discriminatory and wrong. It is also bad for book sales.
