Last night a shooting took place at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando were 50 people were killed by Omar Mateen. This is now known as the largest mass shooting in America. We already have the gun rights activists ready for more gun control, those ready to defend Islam, gay people on target, and a pervasive aloofness amongst Americans.
Let’s address gun control right off the bat. The AR-15 assault rifle that is known as “America’s Gun” is a fine weapon and over 3.7 million American households own one. In the last several years it has been used in mass attacks. I have not researched, but I believe it to be less than ten. Let’s divide the number of assumed attacks by the number of AR-15 assault rifle gun owners and multiply times 100. 10/3.7 million*100= .00027% or these gun owners have used their assault weapons in mass attacks. That is less than 1%. You are more likely to be killed in-car wrecks, lightning strikes, or shark attacks. I have never known this weapon to cause mass casualties without a human at the trigger. Therefore, humans are the problem not the AR-15.
As the news reports all over they are trying to determine whether Omar Mateen was inspired by Islam, ISIS, previous terrorists, etc. Let’s call it how it is. The ugly truth. He was inspired by the teachings of Islam. Islam calls on the death of homosexuals. (See video link below illustration) It is a religion that has shown intolerance to all religions other than itself. India and Pakistan are separated because Islam does not tolerate Hindu’s. Israel has to wall itself in because Islam does not tolerate Jews and are faced with death chants daily. Buddhists are now under attack by Islam.

At one point in history before all Christians were slaughtered they had to rise up in an event known as the crusades. (See illustration)

Islam may be a religion that works within modern society, but it will have to teach tolerance, condemn their extremists, and assimilate to America culture if it is to exist here. They are literally going to have to refocus how they teach the Quran. Is that even possible? These Islamic extremists are known within their communities, but no one is informing law enforcement. At this point it has been shown throughout six centuries of history that Islam’s main goal is forced acceptance or death. It is not the fastest growing religion because people are signing up willfully. This is not made up or an intolerant statement. As U.S. citizens we need to take a hard look at what we are doing. We may be setting ourselves up. It is based on historical facts. For more daily news and the amount of people killed in the name of Islam see Daily Incidents and other Islamic truths
One thing for certain is the gay community in America today has learned a hard fact about Islam. The religion does not tolerate them. Gay people in the Arab countries often do not live to tell about their homosexuality. Here is a video showing the harsh truths of being gay in an Arabic country.

I do not like the idea of gay marriage along with many other sins, but God tells us to follow the law of the land. Christianity teaches Christians that homosexuality is wrong along with a host of other things. I have countless contacts with gay people. Never have I once wanted them dead, but I will preach to them. Christians do not make it a point to kill homosexuals because we operate under “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” I hope that homosexuals who believe Christians are haters can clearly see the difference. It is HUGE!
We have embraced HATE instead of Jesus Christ in America. We have painted Christ as the hater when indeed it is those who are against his teachings that are haters and very dangerous people. Every evil regime throughout history targeted Christians. Hitler, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Un, Mao Zedong, etc. It was Christians who rose up in the name of God who gave people freedom. Remember that! They are afraid of Jesus Christ and his followers because Jesus gives them power to be free. Free of dictatorship! Galatians 5:1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Today even modern China is afraid of Christ. The Chinese people want the freedom Christ brings and the Chinese government is experiencing the power of Christ and they hate it. Read about what they are doing here.

In summary, guns are not a problem certain humans are, gay people need to understand that Islam teaches death to homosexuals and Christians are not their enemy, Islam is not showing itself to be tolerant, and God in his son Jesus Christ gives us true freedom. May we all draw closer to his teachings so that we may all have the love and peace we are so desperately are searching for in America today.
Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. 1 Peter 3:11
