    No,:
    Six in ten respondents (61%) agree that homosexuals should have the same legal rights in all aspects of their lives as heterosexuals, and those who disapprove of sexual relations between two adults of the same sex (29%) are greatly outnumbered by those who do not (46%).

    You need to find a solution rather than just kill them... As A Muslim this is what needs to be done.
    Indeed.
    And the solution is... do nothing. Sexuality is not something that needs "resolving". It only requires acceptance.

    And if you can't find a "solution", is "killing them" ok then?

    Okay sorry man. But I'm trying to be neutral about the situation.
    Why? Are you naturally inclined to a more extreme view?

    Don't blame muslims, religion, or anything except homophobia.
    No one is blaming "Muslims" (apart from the one who carried out this attack, obviously).
    Religion should be blamed if it was religious indoctrination that led, even in part, to this attack.
    The cause of the homophobia is as important as the bigotry itself. If it was religious dogma (which seems plausible), then we do blame the religion.

    Funny that what is really a norm in the US, because of its gun laws is being used as an excuse for killing thousands of people and starting illegal wars
    Funny that I know the meaning of all the words you used, but in the order that you used them, they make absolutely no sense.

    If he did, that needs to be investigated. But the telegraph is the only news source that I have seen reporting that, which I am guessing came from this tweet which literally doesn't prove anything, and it has just been presumed as I haven't read or heard any witness accounts saying that

    Quick question: Would you say your explanations in Islam being able to accept homosexuality is also in agreement with the classical tafseers including Ibn Kathir?

    i mean thats just the one i quoted, i could provide 50 more sources but I dont really want to waste my time doing that.

    And there have been a few witness accounts who have claimed he was praying in arabic during the attack.

    HE WASNT AN ISLAMIC EXTREMIST. He just happened to be muslim.
    Hmm...
    By definition, someone who believes in Islam is Islamic.
    By definition, shooting 50 people is extreme.

    However, it does remain to be seen if Islamic ideology had anything to do with his motivation to carry out this attack. We don't know yet, so to make categorical statements either way is premature.

    I'm not worried. I grieve for their deaths but this changes nothing. We've clipped 30,000 of those f*ckers in airstrikes, and we'll kill another 1000 over the next week as government officials order retaliation for this crime.

    I'm incredibly sad the West has suffered another attack, and as a gay guy of course makes me angry. But it doesn't change the basic calculus; we're going to keep steamrolling over these losers until they've lost all of their territory, then we'll hand them over to the Iraqis to be tortured and killed. No terrorist attack can stop that now.
    Air striking isn't the best method as that kills innocent lives too. Its also important to remember that it's because of the west terrorism has increased in general (rise of Isis).
