Was the gay shooting atrocity really an act of God? As you probably know, the other night there was a deadly hate attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida. A terrorist by the name of Omar Saddiqui Mateen stormed the club, and opened fire on the attendees. Some were held hostage, before law enforcement was finally able to take him down. Dozens are dead, and reports are coming in that some are so badly disfigured from the gun attack, that is proving challenging to identify the bodies.
While information is still coming in, political debates about guns, religion, and sexual orientation have already cropped up. The shooter is alleged to be Muslim, and many Trump supporters are using this attack to vindicate their point. Others are trying to argue that the shooter was a Democrat, and saying that liberals are to blame for this. And other still — and most shockingly — are trivializing the attack because of the sexual orientation of the victims:
These people are an important part of this conversation, because they hold steadfast to these points and ideals. So I ponder, no matter how bad we feel about homosexuality, it is right to wish harm to people who practice this act, many of whom believe that is how they were born and they really believe that they can’t help being how they are. is this a form of gender supremacy? Whatever the case may be, I can’t pretend to believe that when 50 people are murdered, that is ever a good thing. Did these people deserve to die, simply because of their sexual preferences? And does being homosexual really affect anyone in society enough to wish harm to these confused souls?
