We're only a couple days into this.

A lot of shit can change I guess. CNN had originally said he was divorced.

And remarried with a child.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

RE: Mass shooting in Orlando
And then there are assholes like this!

From the Washington Post:

" 'Pastor refuses to mourn Orlando victims: ‘The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die’ "

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts...didnt-die/

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

They revealed that part later on.

RE: Mass shooting in Orlando
I was just listening to a true crime podcast I follow. They played a clip of some preacher, from Arizona I think, ranting about how he wasn't going to feel sad that all those 'pedophiles' are dead. He isn't going to promote violence but basically they got what they deserved. Facepalm

I am sure we will be hearing more of the same.

I wasn't speaking specifically about the reportage of this attack, but in general.

Here's information from Wiki for Fox, the highest-rated cable news outlet in America. And that same article points out the hubbub over the so-called "Ground Zero mosque" was largely fueled by media coverage which misrepresented the intent and even location of the community center.

I agree that the term is bruited about unfairly at times, but the fact is that the majority of Western Muslims don't support terrorism. Yet they are lumped in with the terrorists all the same by too many Americans. In those cases, it is fair to call Islamophobia what it is.

Thanks for the correction.
I don't know about you, but those numbers are very concerning to me. There are an estimated 3.3 million Muslim Americans currently living in the US. Now, according to that poll,

1% of them think that suicide bombings are often justified (33,000)
8% of them think that suicide bombings are sometimes justified (264,000)
5% of them think that suicide bombings are rarely justified (165,000)

That's 462,000 people who don't categorically rule out suicide bombings as wrong. However, it gets worse. The poll goes on to say that

2% of them view Al-Qaeda very favorably (66,000)
3% of them view Al-Qaeda somewhat favorably (99,000)

That's 165,000 American Muslims who have a favorable view of the radical Islamic terrorist organization which is responsible for the 9/11 attacks. There's no question that you're right about them being a minority, but it's a disturbingly large one. Shocking

Do you have a solution?

RE: Mass shooting in Orlando
Not a surprise at all that these religious fucks are saying this shit. One of my first thoughts after this happened was "Great... now that fuckin' zombie parasite Pat Robertson is going to take advantage of another tragedy". Kind of a weird first thought to have, but whatever. Guess I'm cynical that way.

Yeah. You might even say that I have a final solution. Angel

On a more serious note: No, I don't know how to solve this problem. I'm not optimistic enough to believe that Islam will experience a reformation within my lifetime and I also don't believe that the US government is going to adopt a sensible foreign policy for the Middle East anytime soon. The military industrial complex stands to earn too much money for there to ever be peace in that region.
