The past week has been a roller coaster for Muslim Americans. Muhammad Ali’s passing which was a tragedy brought the country together and for a moment Islam and Muslims were human again. Ali, represented the best of Islam and was a “radical Muslim” in his own right. He reminded America and the world that to be a “radical Muslim” doesn’t need only conjure images of ISIS and Alqaeda fighters. Just a day later, a man named Omar Mateen, attacked an Orlando gay bar massacring 50 and injuring 53 people. It is important here to speak out and condemn homophobia and all that contributes to it. Orlando and those affected by the attacks are in our thoughts.

    Most unfortunate but very true. I would add the destruction of the traditional family, drug culture, and spiritual vacuum has added to an already toxic state of mental health.

    Before I reply to this, can you please answer this question: What is the actual purpose of the Koran? Thanks

    As animals are not sui juris, I don’t approve, and as they are likely to be factually nonconsenting, I expect sooner or later something interesting will present at the emergency room.

    Not unless you are abusive to those who differ from you.

    I have no desire to marry a woman, but if someone down the street wants to marry someone of the same sex, it doesn’t injure me. A nice, quiet, responsible gay couple is a lot pleasanter to live next to than that harridan behind me who had drunken, amplified pool parties all night, every night of the week, with scads of exclusively male guests.

    Jekyll, I put those there just to make the flea circus perform, and they do it. If you want to be one of the fleas, we can paste your hind feet to a little unicycle and put you on a tightrope.

    -Who da fuck calls 911 to tell they are joining ISIS?

    Someone who is clearly working off of a script where ISIS is supposed to be the designated motive for the narrative. Of course, when telling a 911 operator about joining ISIS is more important than telling ISIS itself (nothing has been provided to show that he made contact with them), it strongly implies that the intention was only for people to think that it was ISIS, without it actually being ISIS.

    It is hard to imagine how a state can function like that – where people can join just by saying so and then do whatever they want to do – without any chain of command to authorize anything, even one as disreputable as ISIS. It probably doesn’t matter to ISIS, since all they do is kill and destroy anyway. However, what happens if someone says he is joining ISIS and then does something that ISIS does not want? Does ISIS release a special statement distancing itself from it? Do they define themselves better for people to distinguish what is and is not them? It is all starting to look like a farce at this point.

    Maybe you should lessen one parentheses each in your avi name to listen better.

    No more than anyone else. You can’t have two spouses at once, but you can have as many as you like seriatim.

    Excerpts of the interview, which airs today, was released. The guy stated that Mateen had a threesome with two Latin dudes and he found out one of them had HIV after he had sex with them.

    So much for the homophobia angle. Funny thing is that the FBI is saying that they have no evidence that he had any gay lovers. I guess he just had gay apps on his phone for the hell of it. Right?

    TMZ got surveillance tape from a hotel showing a rendezvous with another man. Given the FBI’s denial that he was gay, they will probably play it off that he went to the hotel to play checkers with the guy.

    This is why I always felt Loonwatch jumped the gun. They should have waited before labeling this attack a homophobia attack. You wait until the facts are in and then draw conclusions. That would have been better.

    Now, those that want gun control, are saying he was “inspired” by ISIS. No he wasn’t. He was just a mentally ill loser who lived the haram life and it lead to a dead end.

    What a surprise…

  • Jekyll

    And? My saying was more of a pun that a gay muslim got away with two wives…

  • (((Reynardine)))

    Jekyll, he didn’t have both wives at once, but I remember, back when being gay was a big secret, a number of them married for cover, and even functioned well enough to have kids. Some of them still do it.

  • Joey Sanders

    In his conversations with the police and crisis negotiators, I tried to find anyplace where Mateen stated anything about gays, lesbians or anything else of that nature. He did not.

    Since, it was Latin Night at the club, I tried to locate anything derogatory about Latinos. I could not find anything. Not a word against them.

    I don’t think this had anything to do with homophobia. It seems that he used to go there, he knew the place, and he knew the people would be unarmed. Guns are not allowed in places bars and clubs.

    Mateen is nothing unique though. He is just a mentally ill person who went on a rampage and murdered people. I hope Allah sent him to hell.

    If his motives were homophobic, how much of that was fed to him by the FBI to radicalize him?

  • Jekyll

    Canada just passed a law decriminalizing ‘non-penetrative sex with animals’… soon er or later someone will get hurt…

    Go kiss your own ass, punk

    Go Read Massad, Islam and Liberalism before you run your motor.

  • Jekyll

    Good point…unlike Owens who walked out of the BBC interview, this so called ‘stamping put of homophobia’ is much a liberal symbol as GWOT or ‘fight against racism’ etc….doesn’t actually do much and incorporates so many different angles into a nice sweet box, that it literally makes no sense.
    Muslims are already now being told to ‘end homophobia’ in mosques’… so if we mention the the people of Lut(p) were specifically destroyed because of their sodomy, we are homophobic? Why can’t it be that this guy did what he did because of his own issues?
    Sorry no apologies for Creed. Sympathies to the loss of innocent life.
