British police commissioner bans gay sauna because it was “too close to a Mosque” and caused “widespread offense”

Imagine if Christians took an issue with a gay sauna being too close to their church. They'd be called bigots and homophobes. But when Muslims do it, the police commissioner takes their side.

Greenhouse Health Club in Luton has withdrawn their application for an entertainment license which would have allowed them to sell sex toys and screen adult films after the Muslim community complained.

Police and Crime Commissioner Kathryn Holloway, a former TV host, lead the charge with the Muslim community against the sauna.

According to Breitbart, in a letter of objection sent to Luton Borough Council, she claimed the application has caused “widespread offence and very deep concern” and warned that if the application was allowed, “a number of potential policing issues may arise” because it was five minutes away from the mosque.

“Luton Borough Council is usually particularly aware of matters of cultural sensitivity,” she added. “I trust therefore that you will fully understand that, given the large and devout Muslim population in this area of the borough, there is naturally a high level of religious and cultural opposition to such a business among these residents which needs to be respected, in my view.”

Luton Borough Council told local paper Luton Herald & Post that it received 103 letters of objection to the application citing concerns of 'cultural sensitivity'.

In addition, a petition signed by 430 local residents included homophobic comments with some calling homosexuality a “brain disease”.

Holloway claims she knew nothing about the homophobic signatures on the petition and believed that this was actually a 'win' for the gay community. “This establishment is not representative of them as a whole,” she said.

Political Correctness and “Progressiveness” at its “best”.

PC and Progressives will be the lynchpin in the destruction of Western society.

In Montreal a few years ago a women’s fitness club set up next door to a Jewish boy’s school. The school offered to pay for curtains and blinds for the windows that can be seen from the school. The fitness club agreed. The “Social Justice Warriors” (aka bigots) were outraged that the club would accommodate the Jewish school.

How dare they make such a request! Move if they don’t like skimpy clad women standing in front of windows where young boys could watch!

Meanwhile, at a school in the West Island of Montreal, when Muslim girls take swim class the school sends its maintenance staff to cover the windows so that if someone 12’ tall could look in, they won’t be able to see anything.

The Koran states that all non-Muslims must give deference to Muslims. And so it is law…

Actually it is not unusual in Canada for neighbourhoods to ask not to have strip clubs or certain types or bars or joints located in them or near them. It is not only Muslims who might take offence at a gay sauna being located next door.

Give them more cultural latitude and they’ll start throwing gays off of buildings. In Luton, with the demographics, it’s only a matter of time before the gay stoning and beheadings begin, maybe even in the bath house itself, with a healthy crowd of “moderate” Muslim observers, cheering from the sidelines. Of course the gays outside the building will still be walking around with “Welcome Migrants” placards.

Dr Genius on the PC ladder Muslim is the new gay, the gays better get used to it.

Wait until the Mosques are told they have to have a bathroom for the whatcha-calls it’s.

By the way, RAMADAN begins tomorrow (Tuesday).
Wait until the these little sheet heads starve themselves for a few days and see how utterly likeable they’ll be then!
Keep an eye on your six and beware of Muslims carrying backpacks!

Hey, we can say “Happy RAMADAN!” but not Merry Christmas in this country!

I wonder when Trudeau will be banning Gay-Pride parades to avoid offending Muslim sensibilities. SJWs place Muslims hinger in the kowtowing hierarchy than Homosexuals for some incomprehensible reason.

I’d put money on homosexuality being older than their daft book club.

There was a gay tanning salon in Montreal owned by a guy named Gaetan. The language police were offended that it was called “Gay Tans” rather than “Bronzage Homosexuelle”……lefties are a strange bunch.

Why does no one say – “I am offended that you are offended – this is my society and you are the newbies – now eff off?”

Maybe next he’ll nix the pervy washrooms in city hall?

Good for him – I wouldn’t want it close to a church or school either. I bet this gay sauna has a lot of labor MPs and upper house peerage in the uh “membership” – so 2 birds with one stone.

Maybe next he’ll nix the

Another apologist who is afraid to take a stand against the religion of evil!
