(Reuters) — A gunman killed 50 people and injured 53 in a crowded gay nightclub in the tourist hub of Orlando, Florida, early on Sunday before being shot dead by police, authorities said, in what appeared the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

The shooter was identified as Omar S. Mateen, a man that a senior FBI official said might have had leanings toward Islamic State militants. Officials described the attack as a “terrorism incident” though cautioned that the suspected Islamist connection required further investigation.

The death toll given by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and police to reporters made the attack the deadliest single shooting incident in U.S. history, eclipsing the 2007 massacre at Virginia Tech university, which left 32 dead.

“Today we’re dealing with something that we never imagined and is unimaginable,” Dyer said. Recalling earlier estimates that 20 people had been killed, he added, “It is with great sadness I share that we not have 20 but 50 casualties (dead), in addition to the shooter. There are another 53 …hospitalized.”

A police officer working as a security guard inside the Pulse nightclub, which has operated in downtown Orlando since 2004, exchanged fire with the suspect at about 2 a.m. EDT, police officials said.

A hostage situation quickly developed, and three hours later a squad of officers stormed the club and shot dead the gunman. It was unclear when the gunman shot the victims.

“Do we consider this an act of terrorism? Absolutely, we are investigating this from all parties’ perspective as an act of terrorism,” said Danny Banks, special agent in charge of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. “Whether that is domestic terrorist activity or an international one, that is something we will certainly get to the bottom of.”

When asked if the FBI suspected the gunman might have had inclinations toward militant Islam, including a possible sympathy for Islamic State, Ronald Hopper, an assistant FBI agent in charge, told reporters: “We do have suggestions that the individual may have leanings toward that particular ideology. But right now we can’t say definitively.”

The FBI said it was still trying to pin down whether the mass shooting was a hate crime against gays or a terrorist act.

President Barack Obama ordered the federal government to provide any assistance needed to Florida police investigating the shooting, the White House said in a statement.

The attacker was carrying an assault rifle and a handgun, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said. He was also carrying an unidentified “device”, Orlando Police Chief John Mina said earlier.

            They were not innocent? How can you say that? How can you a) judge and b) condemn people you know nothing about other than their sexuality, and even that’s not necessarily accurate since straight people are also known to go to gay clubs?

          • Amos Moses

            Their claim to that sexuality is enough ………. and they were there ……… and it is a well known homosexual hangout ……… thats why the guy went there ……….

            “and even that’s not necessarily accurate since straight people are also known to go to gay clubs?”

            Sure ………….. and that makes them also not innocent …… actually no one is innocent …… not even me ……… not even you …….. does not make what this guy Mateen did right ……….. but seriously …….. if the people who were killed ………. were someplace else and not endorsing this behavior with their presence ………. much less likely anything would have happened to them ….. they would still be here …….. but they were not ……….. behaviors have consequences …………….

            The reason for this tragedy can be summed up in one word:

          • Ronald Carter

            Atheism is not a faith and there are no fundamentals in it. Either you believe in a higher power or you don’t. Nothing prevents me from reasoning.

          • Amos Moses

            “Atheism is not a faith and there are no fundamentals in it.”

            A-theism is a faith ………….. and its god is Darwin …… or Dawkins ……. or science …….. or …… (do you ever watch Game of Thrones) ……… the many face god ……. so basically …… you believe in nothing ……….. and it brings you there everytime ……….. to nothing ………. because there is no reason to believe anything else ………. and it is fundamentally bankrupt …..

            God keeps me from being fooled by the lies of other gods or the lies of men ……….. there really is no difference there ………. men or other gods …………. see, here is the thing ………… if i already have the truth ……… where is there to move …. but away from it …….

            So what you seem to think is reason ………. is just casting about …….. for what i already have ………….. Have fun with that ………..

            Another night of drinking and dancing, until the shots began

            ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Like young people in clubs the world over, Jon Alamo met up with some friends, and then some more friends. He danced in Pulse’s main room, where people swayed to the beat of salsa music. Then Alamo drifted into the club’s two other rooms, which grooved to more of a hip-hop vibe. He remembers hearing Rihanna’s “Work,” one of his favorite songs, and grinding to it on the dance floor.

            It was supposed to be just a night of dancing and drinking, of looking good and gleefully partying into the early morning hours. It was Latin night at Pulse, one of Orlando’s top gay venues, and two drag performers were scheduled to perform, one of them a big draw for appearing on a season of the TV show “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

            “I was in the zone,” Alamo recalled. “I wasn’t even paying attention — just dancing.”

            The 22-year-old clothing store sales clerk had arrived at the club at 10:30 p.m. Saturday, clad all in blue from his button-down shirt adorned with palm trees to his loafers. About three and a half hours later, the gunshots began and the first of at least 50 people began to die.

            Residents of the Delaney Court condos next door to Pulse first heard the shooting about 2:03 a.m. Marlon Massey was watching the movie “Creed” when he heard “pop, pop, pop!” He checked his phone for the time: The shots went on until 2:05 a.m.

            24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
            24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
            24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

            Now, this was posted in the story, “‘Together 2016’ Organizer Meets With ‘Pope Francis’ to Unite Christians, Catholics on National Mall,” in a thread over the statement Catholics and not Christians.

            Strangely, though, I went to look for it at the actual page, and guess what? I could not find it.

            I wonder why?

            Could it be because it had nothing at all to do with the subject of the thread? Or that the comment was worded as a deliberate poke at Christians, with the intent of provoking an angry response?

            Sorry, Ronnie, but you are a liar and a troll. This above post proves it.

No, they are the ones praying. They are the ones that are out there talking with the families of the dead and those that are wounded, helping with food and money and even giving blood.

            Obituraries numbering 6516 from 16 US homosexual journals over 12 years were compared to a large sample of obituaries from regular newspapers. The obituaries from the regular newspapers were similar to US averages for longevity, the median age of death of married men was 75, 80% of them died old, 65 or older. For unmarried or divorced men the median age of death was 57 and 32% of them died old.

            Married women averaged age 79 at death, 85% died old, and unmarried and divorced women averaged age 71, and 60% of them died old.

            However, the median age of death for homosexuals was virtually the same nationwide, and overall, less than 2% survived to old age. If AIDS was the cause of death, the median age was 39 years old. For the 829 homosexuals who died of something else besides AIDS, the median age was 42 years of age, and 9% died old. Of 163 lesbians, the median age was 44 years of age, and 20% died old. 2.8% of homosexuals died violently and they were 116 times more apt to be murdered, 24 times more apt to commit suicide, and had a traffic accident death rate 18 times greater than comparably aged white males. 20% of lesbians died of murder, suicide, or accident, a rate 487 times greater than that of white females aged 25 to 44.

            R S Hogg, S A Strathdee, K J Craib, M V O’Shaughnessy, J S Montaner and M T Schechter

            CONCLUSION: In a major Canadian centre, life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality were to continue, we estimate that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years will not reach their 65th birthday. Under even the most liberal assumptions, gay and bisexual men in this urban centre are now experiencing a life expectancy similar to that experienced by all men in Canada in the year 1871.

    This is what the sodomites have to look forward to in their future if they do not repent and come out of those abominable lifestyles. Satan will unleash his militant muslims to destroy the sodomites once their usefulness to him is over. Those 53 people could have all been saved if they would have come to Christ but they chose to stay in their inquity and died in their sins.

      Omar Matten was the perpetrator in this horrific event; those who died and those who were injured are the tragic victims. Most of them were undoubtedly young with their whole lives in front of them. The survivors’ lives are forever changed.

      What did the nearly 3000 people who died on 9/11 fail to do which condemned them? What did the nine parishioners in Charleston fail to do that condemned them? Blaming the victim never works, and that’s just as true today as it was when other terror acts have left innocent people dead.

            Well, the Holy Roman Empire n Roman Catholic Church used to execute LGBTQs n witches, eg by burning them at the stake. So, most of them hid in the closet.
            …….USA had sodomy n adultery laws until the 1960s n 1970s b4 they were abolished by the liberals of the Blue States when the liberals began to pander for the LGBTQ-vote. Similarly for the death penalty having been abolished in most liberal Blue States n practically unused by the US Federal govt, eg the case of Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber.

            Nevertheless, we hv to bear in mind that Muslim terrorists target all non-Sunni-Muslim Americans, esp the military, LGBTQs, Christians, Jews, etc.

    I’m a Gay Man and Mass Muslim Immigration Terrifies Me by Milo

    I’d hate to be thrown off a roof. I mean, imagine if I landed on this face. But that’s the future Europe and even the US are sleepwalking into if we let wacky progressive hand-wringers keep apologising for radical Islam and calling the rest of us racist for expressing our concern at mass immigration from cultures that care nothing for the rights of women and gays.
    You want to see a “patriarchy”? Fly to Riyadh or Tehran. In the former, women can’t drive. (Alright, fair enough, they might be on to something there.) In the latter, gays are hanged, often from cranes in public places. ISIS is even more brutal, hurling **** (gays) off the roof after ritually humiliating them. In Raqqa you’ll see women and children sold for a few hundred dollars.

    These are the attitudes we’re importing by allowing millions of Muslims to settle in western Europe. Sorry if that sounds intolerant, but remember women and gays aren’t just treated like shit by ISIS, but mainstream Muslim culture, too. I can’t remember how many Muslim countries have the death penalty for homosexuality. What is it, ten? Eleven?

    We probably have a good idea how many Muslims truly feel about the Orlando shooting, but hopefully the sentiment below is not widespread among the fundamentalist Christian community:

    “The good news is that there’s 50 less pedophiles in this world, because, you know, these homosexuals are a bunch of disgusting perverts and pedophiles. That’s who was a victim here, are a bunch of, just, disgusting homosexuals at a gay bar, okay? Obviously, it’s not right for somebody to just, you know, shoot up the place, because that’s not going through the proper channels. But these people all should have been killed, anyway, but they should have been killed through the proper channels, as in they should have been executed by a righteous government that would have tried them, convicted them, and saw them executed. Because, in Leviticus 20:13, God’s perfect law, he put the death penalty on murder, and he also put the death penalty on homosexuality. That’s what the Bible says, plain and simple. So, you know, the good news is that at least 50 of these pedophiles are not gonna be harming children anymore. The bad news is that a lot of the homos in the bar are still alive, so they’re gonna continue to molest children and recruit people into their filthy homosexual lifestyle.” — Pastor Steven Anderson, Faithful Word Baptist Church, Tempe, Arizona

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      If true, and I believe it is, then it is not of Christ, and I condemn that statement as much as I condemn WBC.

      The really big question is this:

      What is wrong with this shooting on atheism? If there is no God, then all things are permissible – there certainly will not be any objective moral justice meted out to the terrorist. Atheists generally agree with me here:

      “In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, or any justice. The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference… DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is. And we dance to its music.” (Richard Dawkins, River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (1995))

      “Let me summarize my views on what modern evolutionary biology tells us loud and clear — and these are basically Darwin’s views. There are no gods, no purposes, and no goal-directed forces of any kind. There is no life after death. When I die, I am absolutely certain that I am going to be dead. That’s the end of me. There is no ultimate foundation for ethics, no ultimate meaning in life, and no free will for humans, either.” A-theist William Provine

      “The position of the modern evolutionist is that humans have an awareness of morality because such an awareness of biological worth. Morality is a biological adaptation no less than are hands and feet and teeth. Considered as a rationally justifiable set of claims about an objective something, ethics is illusory. I appreciate when someone says, ‘Love thy neighbor as thyself,’ they think they are referring above and beyond themselves. Nevertheless, such reference is truly without foundation. Morality is just an aid to survival and reproduction, . . . and any deeper meaning is illusory.” (Michael Ruse, “Evolutionary Theory and Christian Ethics,” in The Darwinian Paradigm (London: Routledge, 1989), pp. 262-269).

      “Is there a God? No.
      What is the nature of reality? What physics says it is.
      What is the purpose of the universe? There is none.
      What is the meaning of life? Ditto.
      Why am I here? Just dumb luck.
      Is there a soul? Are you kidding?
      Is there free will? Not a chance!
      What is the difference between right/wrong, good/bad? There is no moral difference between them… So much for the meaning of history, and everything else we care about… you will have to be comfortable with a certain amount of nihilism . . . . And just in case there’s always Prozac.” — Alex P. Rosenberg

      • Ronald Carter

        First of all, you’re way off base in terms of how you’re understanding all three of those atheist statements. They don’t mean what you think they mean.

        This article is one you need to read, because it puts all the William Lane Craig stuff in the dumpster where it belongs:

        http://goddoesnt.blogspot. ca/2013/02/god-doesnt-give-us-moral-ontology. html

        Here’s a sampling:

        The entire Twitter engagement about moral ontology (which arose after
        being asked for evidence that God exists, recall) arose with “do you
        think objective morality exists?”

        I answered this question the same way I answered it in God Doesn’t; We Do.
        “It depends on how we define the word ‘objective.'” I don’t mean to
        play word games here–indeed, I think it’s an interesting and hard
        question. Let me show you what I mean by showing you two ways we can
        interpret that term:

        (1) The theist way: Objective morals are divine ethical laws that stem
        from a source outside of human minds (the fellow I talked with last
        night specifically said this, adding the words “transcendent” and
        “supernatural” in the mix).
        (2) The science way: Objective morals are ethical guidelines that have
        been empirically determined to optimize values in salient metrics that
        gauge them.
        Incidentally, while the term “supernatural” cannot apply to (2) above,
        the term “transcendent” can, but not in anything but the mundane
        “societies are bigger than individuals” sense.

        So, I’m not being a jerk when I say that the term “objective morals”
        isn’t sufficiently clear for me to answer the question of whether or not
        they exist.

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          Those statements mean exactly what they clearly say.

          The fact that you do not WANT them to mean what they clearly say and mean is no warrant against their clarity. Those are just your feelings talking. 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            There is really no shame in admitting you don’t understand them 🙂

            Let’s look at Dawkins first: What do you think his statement is saying? That atheists should care nothing about killing or harming others wantonly because they don’t believe they’ll answer to a God?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            “There is really no shame in admitting you don’t understand them.”

          • Ronald Carter

            I wouldn’t be ashamed of such a thing, but it’s patently absurd to suggest that we need a God to be moral people. You know this, and that article I liked pretty much gives William Lane Craig the spanking he’s always deserved. Did you read it?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            “we need a God to be moral people”

            You miss the point completely between ontology (existence) and sociology (behavior). Here is a great short video for you to watch that will distinguish between these two concepts and epistemology (how we come to know objective moral values and duties):

            https://www .youtube .com/watch?v=OxiAikEk2vU

          • Ronald Carter

            You’re very fond of saying that to people, but I don’t think you have a clue what it means yourself. Epistemology is how we come to know things, and ontology is what IS. So I know full well the difference. How do you think it relates to the discussion at hand, and what makes you say that I missed the point in what I said?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            “You’re very fond of saying that to people”

            You’re very fond of saying “You’re very fond of saying.” 🙂

            “but I don’t think you have a clue what it means yourself.”

            Projection, after you confused the terms yourself. 🙂

            “Epistemology is how we come to know things, and ontology is what IS.”

            So, you admit that you confused sociology with ontology above when you wrote “it’s patently absurd to suggest that we need a God to be moral people”?

            “So I know full well the difference. ”

            Apparently not. Well, maybe the short video taught you better. That is progress.

            “How do you think it relates to the discussion at hand”

            The atheist quotes are about ontology, the existence of objective moral values and duties, of objective good or evil. Your strawmen were about sociology and pin one case epistemology. Pretty simple actually.

            If seems you have a fight with your fellow atheists. Just take it up with them – publish a paper that contradicts their quotes regarding ontology.

          • Ronald Carter

            Come now, I’ve seen it over and over. You say to people “You are confusing moral epistemology with moral ontology” to try to flummox them with your highfalutin language. Well, I am not intimidated by it, I know what it means, and you know as well as I do that you can’t possibly know moral ontology when it comes to God because God is not knowable. And by assuming you know God you’re not going to win any arguments. Tell me please what I have “confused” here. I know it perfectly.

            “So, you admit that you confused sociology with ontology above when you
            wrote “it’s patently absurd to suggest that we need a God to be moral

            No, because it IS patently absurd. Did you or did you not read the article I linked? It talks at length about the ridiculousness of making the statement that we need God to make moral statements.

            The atheist quotes are no such thing. You are making the Dawkins quote in particular to be about behavior, and it’s NOT about behavior. Dawkins is simply making the statement that DNA doesn’t have a conscience, it just is. How can he be talking about moral ontology when he’s discussing DNA? He isn’t suggesting that we go out and kill people because of it. And that’s how you’re interpreting it, which is wrong. Pretty simple actually.

            I’m on board with everything those atheists said, and guess what? We don’t need God to know good behavior from bad. What a shame you think you do.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            “Tell me please what I have “confused” here.”

            Already did. Not only told you but proved it to you. The fact that your feeewings were hurt is not warrant against the truth.

            “Dawkins is simply making the statement that DNA doesn’t have a conscience”

            False. No one defends that it does. Morality is always discussed inseparably from humans. No one goes around saying “rocks aren’t good or bad.” That’s silly. Dawkins meant what Dawkins said.

            “I’m on board with everything those atheists said”

            I know you are. 🙂

            “We don’t need God to know good behavior from bad. What a shame you think you do.”

            What a shame that you once again confused epistemology (how we know right from wrong) with ontology (the existence of right or wrong). You are the gift that keeps on giving! 🙂

          • Ronald Carter

            No, you have proven nothing. What you did was insist by stamping your little feet that I don’t know the difference between moral ontology and moral epistemology, and I proved to you that I did. Furthermore, my original statement still stands strong: We don’t require a God to be moral people.
            “Dawkins is simply making the statement that DNA doesn’t have a conscience”
            “No one defends that it does. Morality is always discussed inseparably from humans. No one goes around saying “rocks aren’t good or bad.” That’s silly. Dawkins meant what Dawkins said.”

            All right, well, in that case, may I ask you if you know what DNA is? Deoxyribonucleic acid?

            It seems pretty obvious to me that Dawkins was saying that bad stuff happens in the world. The universe doesn’t have a conscience because the universe doesn’t have morals. That’s all Dawkins was saying. Somehow you find that shocking and horrible. Why? It’s true. What did you infer from Dawkins’ statement that had him saying there was nothing stopping us from murdering little old ladies? You sure like to post his quote a lot. It would help if you knew what he meant, I think.

            “What a shame that you once again confused epistemology (how we know right from wrong) with ontology (the existence of right or wrong).”

            I did no such thing. Your arrogance in this matter is your stumbling block. You think you know moral ontology, that you know the existence of right and wrong and that you know God. You don’t. That’s nothing more than faith. You keep making God a foregone conclusion and argue from that standpoint. What you need to do is take a step back from that position and say “IF God exists…” Because that’s the crux of the matter here. We need a level playing ground. And we’re never going to have a level playing ground if you keep assuming God before the debate even starts. Moral ontology, which you keep talking about, isn’t yours to claim.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Tell me about rocks not having morality again. I liked that one. 🙂

            Only atheists defend amoral rocks when no one is proposing rocks with morals. Hahaha! 🙂

            “Tell me about rocks not having morality again. I liked that one. :-)”
            How can I do that? It was you who said it. Attributing it to me would make you a liar, and I know you don’t want to be known as a liar, right?
            “Only atheists defend amoral rocks when no one is proposing rocks with morals. Hahaha! :-)”
            You said rocks. Not me.
            “If you do not understand the difference between ontology, epistemology, and sociology, just admit it, study up on it, and come back and play another day.”
            I do, as I stated from the beginning. Epistemology is how we come to know things. You agreed with me on that. Ontology is what IS. You agreed with me on that, too. What you won’t say is what gives you the right to say why you think you know what God wants.
            “Right now, you are embarrassing yourself.”
            That is demonstrably false, but an attempt to backpedal on your own embarrassing statements.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            From the original quotes I provided:

            “no purpose, no evil and no good,” “no ultimate foundation for ethics, no ultimate meaning in life,” “ethics is illusory”

            At no time are these concepts separable from human activities and choices. Except in your bizarre interpretation of what these men are saying.

            Your argument is with them, not me. They understand atheism far better than you do.

            “Epistemology is how we come to know things. … Ontology is what IS.”

            And sociology is behavior.

            Here are YOUR words showing YOUR confusion:

            “we need a God to be moral people”

            There, you clearly confuse sociology with ontology.

            “We don’t need God to know good behavior from bad.”

            There you clearly confuse epistemology with ontology.

            If you do not even have the intellectual honesty to admit this, then what is the point of further conversation?

    To the haters of ChickFilA and their stance on gay marriage, a friend just shared this with me…..
    “Chick-Fil-A Did WHAT After Gay Club Shooting?

    Chick Fil A has made national news for it’s owners’ stance on gay marriage. Anytime they do something even remotely non-PC, their supposed slip up goes viral. Hash tags pop up all over the place.

    So why is that what they have done in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting hasn’t received a single mention on the mainstream new outlets?

    It’s probably because people like New York City Mayor, Bill DeBlasio might have to eat crow instead of chicken. DeBlasio has said that Chick Fil A spreads a message of hate.

    Not so yesterday. In a shocking move, the Orlando location at University and Rouse Road quietly fired up its grills on Sunday. The chain is notorious for not being open, ever, on the Sabbath. Employees cooked up hundreds of their famous chicken sandwiches. They brewed dozens of gallons of sweet tea.

    Then, instead of making a single dime, and without pomp and circumstance they crated the product of their labor to the One Blood donation center. The food and drinks were handed out, free of charge, to all the people who had lined up to donate blood.

    So far, the only mentions of the incident have been from individuals on Facebook. They have posted photos thanking the restaurant for their thoughtfulness and generosity.

    But, wait, those people were waiting to give blood to victims that were mostly gay people. Doesn’t Chick Fil A hate gays? That’s what we keep being told.

    Turns out, that while the founders definitely don’t approve of that choice of lifestyle, they believe in compassion. Who knew? A bunch of people claiming to be Christians care about others even when they don’t agree with them. This group took time out of their schedules to volunteer to help those who were also trying to do their part.

    On top of that, the franchise’s location on Wells Road in Orange Park is even offering coupons for a free frosted lemonade to anyone who donates blood when the One Blood mobile unit is at there store on June 14th.

    In times like these it’s comforting to share a feel-good story about caring individuals and the company they work for – So much for “Chick Fil hAte” becoming a thing.

    On that note I think I’ll go grab a sweet tea! “

    What a Hate Crime Looks Like

    For the longest time we have been redefining what words mean. We have been watering down and nullifying words that anger, challenge, or irritate us, and we have been twisting others to make them suit our preconceived notions or ideas.

    It’s gotten so bad that if anyone, perchance a baker refused to make a cake depicting two men holding hands while a astride phallic shaped rocket, it was labeled a hate crime; something heretofore unseen and unheard of.

    Unfortunately, less than a day ago we saw the true definition of a hate crime, and it had nothing to do with refusing to validate a certain lifestyle, or insisting that certain practices are sinful in the sight of God.

    Fifty people are dead. They will never see another sunrise, they will never watch another sunset, and every hope and dream they had died along with them. A man of Muslim persuasion walked into a place where these individuals congregated and simply opened fire. It wasn’t a Methodist, it wasn’t a Southern Baptist, it wasn’t even one of those intolerant Pentecostals that did this heinous thing. It was a twenty-nine-year-old Muslim man.

    I need to point this out because once the spinners get to spinning one is apt to believe that he was influenced by Christian intolerance, and if not for Christianity this nice Muslim boy would never have thought of doing such a thing.

    Let’s be honest here. Cards on the table, nothing up our sleeve sort of honest. Christians simply don’t do this, and even the world knows it. The worst you can expect of any Christian, a true Christian regardless of their denomination, is telling someone that their lifestyle is sinful and that they need to repent. I cannot embrace, validate, or champion your lifestyle, but never once have I wished death upon anybody for it. Christians don’t want to see sinners dead. Christians want to see sinners saved. That is one of the marked differences between the Christian faith and Islam.

    “Tolerance” for homosexuals ………… “Tolerance” for Islam ………… the two are diametrically opposed ……….. it is not diversity …….. it is familiarity breeds contempt ……….. you cannot have it both ways ………… matches and gasoline ……….. striking up a “Tolerance” and “friendship” between them ………… gonna blow up in your face ………… (“But we never imagined that would happen”) …… even Ray Charles could have seen it coming ………… and he’s dead already …………

    EXCLUSIVE – Top Gaza Terrorist: Throwing Gays from Rooftops ‘The Law of Allah’

    TEL AVIV – When the Islamic State throws gay men from rooftops, they are simply enacting “the laws of Allah and of his Prophet,” a top Islamic State-tied jihadist in the Gaza Strip exclaimed in an interview.
    Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, a Salafist movement senior official in the Gaza Strip, was asked about the murderous, anti-gay practice and was also petitioned to comment on the selection of the Pulse gay night club as the target in Sunday’s deadly mass terrorist shooting.

    Ansari made the remarks in an interview that aired Sunday night on this reporter’s radio talk show, “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” broadcast on New York’s AM 970 The Answer ad NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia.

    Stated Ansari:

    When the Islamic State throws gays from the roofs, it is not a sanction that they decided upon. This is our Sharia. These are the laws of Allah that were made by Allah and implemented by his Prophet and our brothers in the Islamic State are only implementing these laws and instructions of Allah and of his Prophet.
