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.

    > Islam isn’t just a religion, it is a political ideology.

    Just like christianity, judaism, hinduism, confucianism and practically every major religion.

    And just like every religion it is all subject to interpretation of which there are practically an unlimited number to chose from. That's why you can have these gay imames [] and this mosque welcoming LGBQT people [] and american evangelicals pushing the death penatly for gay sex in uganda. []

      I have mod points, but it's already at 5. I tried to push it to 6, as that is one better, but it seems the limit is 5.
      But why not just make 5 one louder.
      Well, mine goes to 6!
      (yeah, sorry. It's the vodka talking again).
