Turning Orlando into forced acceptance of homosexuality
Gays, allies turn massacre into campaign

Everyone knows my position on the radical homosexual agenda being forced upon our country. I totally disagree with it.  Marriage is between one man and one woman. Homosexuality is not compatible with Christianity, nor should homosexuals be legally recognized as a protected class.


Having said that, as I predicted and expected, homosexuals have attempted to use the tragedy in Orlando to advance their ultimate political goal—forced acceptance of their lifestyle choices upon all Americans.


The murder of 49 people in Orlando had absolutely nothing to do with homosexuality. I repeat, the murder of 49 people in Orlando, Florida last weekend had absolutely nothing to do with homosexuality.


This was an act of terror, plain and simple!


Murder, by definition, is an act of hate. So it seems kind of ridiculous to argue that this was also a hate crime. Calling the murders in Orlando a hate crime is like saying I am dating my girlfriend. Huh? Exactly.


I have never heard of anyone murdering out of love, but I digress.


As soon as I found out that the Orlando murders took place at a homosexual nightclub, I told everyone you can best believe that the “first gay president” would move heaven and earth to make a personal visit to Orlando.


Not only that, but Obama had the U.S. flag lowered to half-staff.  This declaration meant flags nation-wide and at all U.S. embassies around the world were required to lower their flags.


When will the flags in Chicago be lowered to half-staff?  When will they get a presidential visit?  When will Obama demonstrably show anger about the constant, seemingly daily, loss of life there?


Last September alone in Chicago, you had nine people murdered in one day and not a word from Obama or the rest of America.  


The Black Lives Matter movement all of a sudden got laryngitis, because black lives only matter when a white person is involved in a death of a black person, not when it is black on black crime.


There was no wall-to-wall coverage on TV about the murders in Chicago. There were no U.S. Senate filibusters taking place in D.C. on gun control, and not one flag was lowered to half-staff.


Oh, snap, my bad. These victims were all black and Latino heterosexuals. So they don’t count!  The murders in Chicago are being perpetrated by domestic terrorists: gangs and drug dealers. So this type of murder is to be tolerated.


So, maybe, just maybe, if the family members of the murdered victims in Chicago were to posthumously “self-identify” their loved ones as homosexual, maybe the spotlight would be shined on the epidemic murder rate there.  Maybe.


It seems Obama is incapable of making an emotional connection with anything involving the black community.  He cried like a baby when talking about the Newtown, Conn., murders a couple of years ago, but always seems to be distant when confronting the black community.


Since we know most of the media is liberal, their making the Orlando story about homosexuality should come as no surprise.  I fail to see the relevance of the murders taking place at a homosexual club.


Why is that even relevant to the story?  When tragedy strikes at a heterosexual club, the media never describes it as heterosexual. So why was it necessary for the media to indicate that Pulse was a homosexual club?


Oh, I forgot, mainstream media wanted to create the narrative that the murders happened at Pulse, because the club was popular with homosexuals, but the media got egg on their face when they reluctantly discovered that the murderer himself was indeed homosexual.


So can the murders still be considered a hate crime targeting homosexuals even though the perpetrator himself was a member of the very group the media claimed he hated?


The media should be ashamed of themselves for attempting to create a homosexual narrative to further its liberal political agenda.  This was a terrorist act period.


While some may think it is cool to use the Orlando tragedy as an opportunity to promote the radical liberal homosexual agenda, it is not smart nor is it safe.  Enough with political correctness and let’s focus more on the safety of all Americans, not just homosexual Americans.

Homosexuals are a dirty, degenerate bunch who are happy to commit same-sex sodomy. Is it any wonder that they lie? I'm pretty sure (though thankfully not by experience) that lying is easier than being sodomized.

Oh...my....God. Could this be a more expected opinion out of North Carolina? YAWN. Nobody cares, dude.

Raynard Jackson out to be ashamed of himself for the relentless invective he hurls at the LGBT community. He ought to be ashamed of himself for suggesting it was little more than coincidence that the nightclub that Omar Mateen opened fire in was a Gay club. He ought to be ashamed for assuming that Mr. Mateen was Gay, when in fact he had a child and was one wife #2; if he DID have any attractions to men, his allegiance to ISIS made him a very conflicted and self-loathing man.

Raynard Jackson obviously thinks that Gay Americans are second class citizens who don't deserve the same legal benefits, protections, and opportunities that Straight Americans have always taken for granted. Maybe that's why I detected NO sympathy for the victims in Orlando and the loved ones they left behind.

FBI said he wasn't homosexual plus the attacks were at a gay club. Your rant is the usual homophobic garbage like how you refer to a radical liberal homosexual agenda. Your article is as stupid as you are

Marriage,like reality and morality,have nothing to do with religion.
Using the foolishness of religion to attack people because of the way they are born and whom they love is sick,especially after someone with the same beliefs murders forty-nine innocents because of love.
Do christians have no decency as well as no morality?

Jesus regularly defied Old Testament concepts such as the idea of not working on the Sabbath. His company were the members of society who were excluded because of the teachings of the Priest in the temple. What would Jesus, himself, say about your views on the acceptability of the victims of the Orlando shooting? I think this is a question you should ask yourself, before you use the teachings of Jesus Christ as a divisionary weapon as opposed to as an inclusive shield.

By the way, not only do you sound very homophobic, but you also seem very racist and unbalanced. You're giving all Christians a bad name.

It's been confirmed already that the killer did what he did because his religion dictates that gays be killed or forced to abandon their lifestyle. They were killed because they were gay. Denying that means denying confirmed facts. Even his father and wife said he hated gays. It's sad that you're using this tragedy as an excuse to launch into a tirade against gays just because your outdated religion tells you to hate them. Do you also believe the earth is only 6,000 years old just because the bible says so? Read a science textbook sometime, Cleetus.
