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, as preached in many mosques, does in fact demand it and is precisely why this happens. Christianity, barring a few disavowed nutjobs, preaches only peace from the pulpit. Equating the two makes you look like a fool.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.

    > Islam, as preached in many mosques, does in fact demand it

    In your wet dreams.
    Compared to the daily evangelical fixation on LGBQT, the topic barely comes up in most mosques.
    I doubt you've ever even been in a mosque.
