50 Dead at Gay Nightclub in Orlando…
We never have our fill of bloodshed it seems, but I will say this:
If you support discrimination against GLBT people…if you are somebody like Rod Dreher who complains about “PC police” who won’t let you call us names on the job…if you think we are sick, crazy, “disordered” or perverts looking for little girls in the bathroom…shut up. Shut your mouth. Say nothing. We don’t need to hear from you. We don’t need your patronizing, half hearted sympathy. We don’t need your moralizing or prayers. You own this event just as surely as the fanatic who carried out the attack. You enabled it. You armed him with the guns and the hatred.
Rod Dreher…you own this.
Maggie Gallagher…you own this.
Bryan Fischer…you own this.
Don’t go trying to just stuff it all onto Islam. That young man was born HERE and he absorbed the hatred HERE! He got it from you. 50 dead and over 50 injured…just like so many of you have been fantasizing about in your calls for carrying handguns into the bathroom at Target. But you won’t admit it. You will say it is all just about the Muslims and tomorrow you will go back to talking about shooting transgendered women in the bathroom or beating up gay men, or the “gay thought police” are making you feel bad all before the blood has dried on the floor because that is just what you do.
But don’t pretend we haven’t noticed.
Anyways…Huffpo coverage here…
