A suspected Islamic extremist wielding an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and a handgun opened fire inside a crowded, Orlando homosexual nightclub early Sunday, killing 50 people before dying in a gunfight with SWAT officers, police said. It was the worst mass shooting in American history.
Law enforcement sources have identified the shooter as U.S. citizen Omar Mateen, 29, whose parents are from Afghanistan, a radically Islamic nation.
At least 50 people were killed and 53 others were injured in the shooting inside Pulse, which describes itself as the most prominent gay nightclub in Orlando, early hours of June 12, 2016.
There were about 320 people inside the nightclub at the time of the shootings and about 100 people were taken hostage.
An FBI spokesman said the mass shooting is being investigated as an act of terrorism. The FBI believe the gunman, who was shot dead by officers, may have “leanings to radical Islamic terrorism.”
Twitter accounts which claim to be affiliated to the Islamic State have hailed the shooting.
The attack happened against three significant homosexual symbols. June 2016 is the month that, by presidential decree, Barack Hussein Obama proclaimed as “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.”
The city of the attack, Orlando, is the home of the Disney World, an amusement park famed for advocating the gay ideology.
The most prominent homosexual nightclub in Orlando was attacked. Nightclubs are major meeting points for homosexuals.
Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on a congressional intelligence committee, noted that the shooting took place during the holy Islamic date of Ramadan, and that ISIS leaders have urged Muslims to attack during this time.
“The target was an LGBT nightclub during [the Homosexual] Pride [Month], and — if accurate — that according to local law enforcement the shooter declared his allegiance to ISIS, (that) indicates an ISIS-inspired act of terrorism,” Schiff said in a statement.
If confirmed as an act of terrorism, it would stand as the deadliest such attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001, when al Qaeda-trained, Saudi Muslim hijackers crashed jetliners into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania, killing some 3,000 people.
A Christian Stance
Of course, Christians, who are the main target of Islamic violence and killings around the world, sympathize with the victims of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. But sympathy does not equal with endorsement to the homosexual agenda.
While Islamic nations as Saudi Arabia, which is a U.S. ally, condemn the gay agenda and homosexuals to death, Christians condemn only the gay agenda and help homosexuals get free from its physically, morally and spiritually deadly influence.
The U.S. mainstream media, traditionally controlled by pro-sodomy socialists, do not criticize Saudi Arabia and its violence against Christians. In fact, they talk timidly about Christians (who represent the majority of victims) and homosexuals (who represent the minority of victims) being killed in Islamic nations.
What does the modern “tolerant” United States –which was historically founded by persecuted Protestants — do? It grants asylum to thousands of Muslims. Only this year, the U.S. granted asylum to over 2,000 Muslim Syrians. Only six Christian Syrians were granted asylum.
That is, Muslims traditionally persecute and kill Christians and homosexuals, and the U.S. wants more Muslims, and less, much less, of their Christian victims.
Omar Mateen is direct result of the insane pro-Islam immigration policies of a republic founded by Protestants, who never envisioned a nation to serve the gay and Islamic agenda.
Even though homosexuals are also, with Muslims, in the top priority of the U.S. granting asylum, Christians have been ostracized.
Now that an Islamic terrorist did in a U.S. homosexual nightclub what they do daily with Christians in Muslim nations, what will the U.S. do? Will it label the attack as a general religious fanaticism to demonize Christian efforts to help homosexuals and society get free from the gay agenda’s physically, morally and spiritually deadly influence?
Christians also work to get society free from the Islamic agenda. If their efforts fail, who will hinder other massacres from happening?
Homosexuals and Muslims do not need to die. Jesus has a better plan for them: deliverance from their sins and eternal life.
Christians love sinners, but not their sins, and they feel sorry when they die in their sins.
