50 dead

50 fewer souls

All because one guy was offended at seeing two guys kiss

It probably goes deeper than that.

It probably does

But I suppose that kiss could be the proverbial "straw that broke the camels back"

It has everything to do with religion despite what POS father says. He would not have been offended by seeing two men kissing if it were not for religion. That the shooters Dad seems to think that is an understandable trigger shows that he too is bigoted by his religion.

Born in the US.  Raised in a country where he enjoys religious freedom.  Happens to see two men kissing.  Kills 50 random people in a night club.  This will never make sense.

Evangelicals can be just as upright. This is about hate.

Seeing as it's a gay bar it's sad to think if any victims families are not aware they were there and have to find out this way.

Makes perfect sense

When you are preached to all your life with hate you tend to be a hateful person

I'll go ahead and guess that the gunman purchased his weapons legally.

/I'm sure that it's too soon to talk about firearms though...

Homophobia is not specific to religion. People can be bred to be homophobic by their surrounding culture just as much. It wasn't long ago that you'd hear 'faggot' used as an insult that offended straight people regardless of their beliefs.

Would it kill the shooter nutjobs to start with themselves?

...well, yeah. But... you know...

What religion is that? Seems like quite a few religions have texts written by men who are offended by gay people.

I don't understand that level of hate. It's disgusting, and when I first saw the headline, I instantly assumed the act was carried out by a proponent of Ultra Right Wing 'Murican ideology.

Wasn't far off. Islamic terrorists want a theocracy, too.

But all that bullshiat is beside the point. 100 people were injured or killed. For going out and having a good time.

It's sickening, monstrous act.

Naw, I'm sure he would have posted the same thing if someone had walked into a church and opened fire.

For fair consideration, he did not explicitly mention the shooting in the posting, meaning that he could argue that the image is merely coincidental rather than a response should public outrage for his completely tactless and tasteless act prove politically detrimental to him.

Earlier in all this The White House said Obama would not give a statement today on this. I wonder if that will change.

There should be an outcry, a demand that this piece of shiat resign. Hours after this attack, he celebrates it. Literally celebrates it as something ordained by god.

Everything about this is farked up.

cman: 50 dead

50 fewer souls

All because one guy was offended at seeing two guys kiss


I haven't heard the guy's father first-hand. Does he condemn his son? He's obviously morning the monster, but what has his reaction been besides just saying that?
