By now we have all heard of the cowardly slaughter of tens of unsuspecting nightclub goers in Orlando. Every television network, along with every semi-news website has continuous coverage of the horrible incident. And every news organization is striving to give us the latest information that could possibly link the said “terrorist” to a specific “terrorist organization”, whether it is ISIS, Al-Qaeda or some other International Terrorist Organization. Or could this simply be home-grown terrorism. The FBI took over the investigation early on. And that is probably a good thing. And let me say that this is indeed a horrible, tragic event, and I genuinely feel terrible for the families involved. Simply Tragic.
Now, my personal belief is that the urge to attach some organization, which must be bastardizing the Muslim Religion, to this event is somewhat mis-guided. In fact, I would say completely political in scope and nature. The fact, according to the news media, is that the gunman was Muslim. Yes, I heard he was American born and raised. But his religious belief system is Muslim. According to the Muslim Faith, homosexuality is a crime against society, legally punishable.
“In many Muslim countries, acting upon homosexual feelings — the behavior itself — is condemned and subject to legal punishment. The specific punishment varies among jurists, ranging from jail time or flogging, to the death penalty. In Islam, capital punishment is only reserved for the most grievous crimes which hurt society as a whole. Some jurists view homosexuality in that light………..”

So, whether or not this gunman was in direct contact with ISIS, Al-Qaeda, or any other “organization” is somewhat irrelevant. I am not a Terrorist Expert, and I do not have years of experience studying tragic events, and I certainly do not have access to all of the inside information / connections to the higher ups, etc. that our news outlets have. But, thank the Lord above; I do have a little common logic rumbling around in my head. And if this gunman has been studying the Islamic Religion for any period of time now, and if he decided to take said religion and the beliefs thereof to heart, it is completely possible that he has acted out in a manner he finds completely acceptable in view of his understanding of the religion he has professed himself to follow. And herein lies the issue with the way our news media has decided to cover this horrible event. Instead of simply saying this guy had an issue with the Gay lifestyle because it goes against his religious beliefs. And his particular religious beliefs tell him Gay Activity is punishable by death. And therefore he decided to act upon this belief. Our news media must figure out a way to attach him to some bastardized version of Islam because to denounce Islam itself, is simply not permissible in today’s politically correct society. And that is ashamed. It is also the most simple, basic, explanation for what took place in a Gay Nightclub last night in Downtown Orlando.
