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.

    "However, he took the Last Rites, administered by a priest, just before his execution," it says right after the bit about the letter saying he was agnostic. Odd that you omit that.

      Pascal's Wager is so christian-centric that even mentioning it proves the point.
      It only works if the choice is between no god and the catholic god.
      Add in all the other versions of god and it becomes a game of roulette.

        If you had to choose between throwing your money in a trash can and throwing your money on a roulette table... no matter how you played your money on the roulette table you'd have better odds of a return than putting your money in the trash can.
