A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    The father of the suspect

    ...said his son got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami a few months ago. He said his son was especially enraged because the kissing took place in front of his own young son.

    To be fair, I was completely disgusted by seeing two guys with porn 'staches kissing.

    I'm not even notably homophobic, but something about that just made my skin crawl.

    I was ready to chalk it up to just REALLY not being attracted to men, but then I saw two lesbians with mustaches kissing and really got horrified.

    So, uh, people with hairy faces, could you keep it down with the PDA until I figure this out? Thanks in advance.

    I promise not to indulge my fetish for enemas in public in return.
