While Liberals Were Blaming Christians For the Orlando Shooting, Radical Muslims Were Killing Gay People
Here we are again, folks. Another terrorist attack fueled by radical Islamic extremism. Another slew of innocent civilians dead for no good reason at all. Another round of politically correct press conferences where our president refuses to even mention Muslims or radical Islam or terrorism, despite all evidence pointing to the aforementioned. Another opportunity for the Left to call for tighter gun control and throw blame at the NRA before the victims chalk outlines were even drawn. Sadly, these attacks and subsequent liberal talking points have become all too common and all too familiar for the vast majority of Americans. From September 11th to the Fort Hood massacre to the Boston Marathon Bombing to San Bernardino, we’ve been here over and over.
This time, as you’re undoubtedly aware, a 29-year-old Islamic terrorist named Omar Mateen strolled into a gay nightclub in Orlando on Sunday morning, reportedly wearing a suicide vest, and opened fire on over 300 people. The death toll is staggering and nearly impossible to comprehend — at least 49 people dead and over 50 wounded. It’s being labeled as the worst terror attack on American soil since 9/11 and rightly so. It’s a horrific tragedy and I pray that all of the families and friends of the victims will find the peace and comfort that can only come from God in this time of grief and sadness. After all, that peace and comfort won’t come from any of our political leaders, particularly President Barack Obama, who managed to push his gun control agenda in a short speech Sunday night following the attack. Of course, he never once mentioned radical Islamic terrorism and instead said that the motives of the shooter were not yet known, despite the fact that Omar Mateen called 911 during the attack and pledged allegiance to ISIS. He was even referred to as a “solider of the caliphate” by affiliates on the Islamic State radio and had been on the FBI’s radar for several years because of his pro-ISIS statements.
Anyone who claims that we can’t know the shooter’s motivations when he himself declared his motivations to world while carrying out the attack, is utterly ignorant and delusional. And today, Barack Obama is in that category. His own administration knew about Omar Mateen years ago and did nothing. Is our president really that uninformed? Or is he just a lying coward hellbent on manipulating the narrative so he can continue to cover for Islam and lecture Americans on guns? I don’t know about you, but I’m leaning toward the latter.
Anyway, it hasn’t just been the NRA and law-abiding gun owners on the receiving end of the blame. Within hours of the shooting, countless people took to social media to blast Christians for being the source of anti-LGBT attitudes in the country. We’re the prejudiced and bigoted ones spreading hatred for homosexuals, or so we’re told. So, it’s really our fault when something like this happens. But, it was a Muslim jihadist who walked into a gay nightclub and mowed down a bunch of homosexuals — not unlike all the Muslims over in the Middle East who stone gays to death or throw them from rooftops. Christians disagree with homosexuality by quoting the Bible, preaching sermons or refusing to bake wedding cakes. Radical Muslims disagree byslaughtering mass amounts of innocent people. And yet, modern liberal progressivism has done everything in its power to cast Christianity as the enemy and to welcome Islam with open arms.
I would ask these liberals: When was the last time you flipped on the TV and heard reports about a Baptist whacko blowing up a building or a Methodist lunatic executing people in the street? When was the last time any Christian of a major Protestant religion carried out a horrific act of mass violence in the name of Jesus? The reason we almost never hear about that sort of violence is because it almost never happens. Conversely, whenever a major attack like this one occurs, the first thought in everyone’s mind is: “That was probably a radical Islamic Muslim.” And sadly, that’s usually the case. I don’t have a doctorate in religious studies, but I think this might indicate that Islam has a problem. Granted, there are plenty of peaceful Muslims out there, but if their faith can be interpreted in such a way that requires the murdering of infidels — Christians, Jews, straight, gay, liberals, conservatives, everyone — then they have some serious issues to overcome.
Islamic jihadists murder gay people. Christians invite gay people to church.
Islamic jihadists throw gays off of rooftops. Christians explain the beauty of salvation, the truths of sin, repentance and grace, the wonder of Heaven and how to have an eternal relationship with Jesus.
Islamic Jihadists stone gays to death. Christians know that every life matters, even the people with whom we disagree.
Radical Islamic jihadists hate gay people. Christians love gay people.
But, the liberal progressives can't see that because they're too blinded by their anti-Christian ideological predispositions. They're at war with Christianity while Islamic jihadists are at war with us. And that's a truth that they will have to face one way or another. I just fear that by then, it will be too late.
