Canadian Syrian Refugee Plan.

Canadian Syrian Refugee Plan.
http://m.thestar.com/#/article/news/cana...n-cbc.html

They're are oddly singling out straight men. I actually like the idea that they only take families, but the fact they are taking anyone but straight men is boggling to me, as I actually suspect that many of the most militant Muslims are secretly gay, in a ted haggard way. We also have precedent for women blowing themselves up. I think we should take families only.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Well Canada is quickly becoming the Sweden of the Americas with all the far left people that live over there so maybe that has to do with them not taking in straight males.

Still I don't think that would cause them to do this. It just really doesn't make sense when you think about it.

Fair enough, I actually understand that there simply trying to reach out to a very oppressed group ( gay Syrians) but I worry about the precedent for the future here.

The only thing I can really say is that they're trying to prioritize women and children, and people commonly oppressed like homosexuals. Though I still feel bad for the straight men who might die because of it. Or at the very least be separated from their families.

Most immigrant communities began with straight young me who then brought their families or mail order brides. Actively choosing not to allow straight young men seems to be a decision not to have many immigrants.

In the abstract, I don't have a problem with, as Chad says, "prioritizing" families.

But is the thinking behind it that a single man is the most likely to be a terrorist? Then won't all the single terrorist men get wives? And then they'll block newly married couples, so won't the terrorists recruit dudes who are already married? And have families? And...

Don't worry, my friend.  If this be the end, then so shall it be.

They were painting this a security measure yes. I agree in that regard its shit, because as I stated earlier I suspect there is a disproportionate number of gay men in and among radical Muslims. Not because gays are bad, but because they're more likely to try to make up for their "impurity" by being uber faithful. We seen this with ted haggard.

RE: Canadian Syrian Refugee Plan.
The implication was that men were more expendable. Like what they did on the titanic. Except then why bring gay men too? So my idea may not be accurate. I don't really know.
