    And we don't take seriously the rights of Palestinians or innocent people who died in Iraq, because they come from value systems not the same as western neoliberals. Listen to how this guy Thutmose talks about them, it is hate filled towards a race and culture, and would never be permitted if not from the mouth of an affronted gay person. This is how horrible western neoliberalism is. They are a pack of hypocrites.
    As much as I disagree with Thutmose and the plight suffered by Palestinians and Iraqis amongst others, that shouldn't be used to justify or deflect from what was a unprovoked and completely unacceptable attack on innocent lives as a result of hateful ideology.

    How does that make him Muslim?? He could be of any religion.
    More than 90% of Aghans are Muslim. ISIS sympathisers on Twitter seen already praising the attack.

    How can you suddenly jump to conclusion just because of where he was from and what his name is? Seriously, he could of any religion. How do you know he wasn't Christian or any other faith?

    'Gay' is right. 'Gayism' isn't. Nonsensical English rules for you.

    Mass shootings everywhere, especially in America and Muslim lands are carried out by Christian American males more than anyone else.
    Such unsubstantiated assertions.

    And I'd have to think ISIS has a role to play in mass shootings in muslim lands

    Actually I'd say the fact they attacked a gay nightclub very much suggests that gay people were the targets.

    I never said otherwise. The fact is we are all targets to terrosits. Gays were targets before this attack and will continue to be after it. The next target could be a shopping mall, a football match or a restaurant. We are all potential targets.

    Gay venues do seem to be a more vulnerable target from an organisation that enjoys throwing gays off buildings however and if I had to make a list of venues most likely to be hit with a gun attack then gay night spots would be on it.

    The key word being "years ago", and he was a paranoid schizophrenic not linked/connected to any extremist ideological group.

    Which, though vile, did not encourage mass murder or the killing of gays. In this case initial reports suggest that this terrorist had jihadi links, i.e. to a group sharing ideological beliefs promoting terrorism and the killing of gays.

    Well, if you're referring to ISIS it's unlikely they had anything to do with this - the suspect is a US citizen born to Afghan parents, not the profile of an ISIS member at all. LGBT people however are at an additional risk of violence from not only Islamic but also Christian and other homophobic extremeists which needs to be recognised as part of anti-terror strategies.

    Guardian suggesting he emigrated from Afghanistan now and was "trained in the use of weapons".

    The BBC has stated:

    Homophobia within the Muslim community is something that needs to be challenged.

    The fact is that there is room for acceptance of homosexuality within Islam. There is no verse within the Quran which explicitly condemns homosexuality. I think in light of this event (which sources appear to point towards Islamic extremism), more needs to be done within the Muslim community to tackle the issue of homophobia and serious discussions need to take place over Islamic interpretations in regards to sexuality.
    Actually I think in the Qur'an it says 'kill the one that's doing it and kill the one that's being done to' or something like that
