    I'm not being politically correct because I don't even know how to do that, but I haven't heard if this is an Islamic ideology or a hate crime toward gays - or both. I'm sure it will be very clear soon enough.

    Man, I'm still shaking.

    Unfortunately with Radical Islam the two go hand in hand.

    I just heard someone on the news saying he was a radical Islamic terrorist.

    Oh my gosh.

    I believe we'll have to wait until everything is confirmed before it can be determined if this is radical islam or a hate crime towards gays.

    On one hand, he's of Afghan decent, MAY BE Muslim and have radical leanings.

    OTOH, his dad did tell a newsman that his son hated to see gay men kissing in public in Miami.

    Who knows. But whatever it is, he was one evil person and has effected HUNDREDS of lives.

    :(

    "The worse Mass Shooting in American History"

    Because of his name and heritage, there were immediate questions about Mateen's possible ties to Islamic fundamentalism — but his father said it may have been a recent incident involving two men showing each other affection that set the gunman off.

    "We were in Downtown Miami, Bayside, people were playing music. And he saw two men kissing each other in front of his wife and kid and he got very angry," Mir Seddique, told NBC News on Sunday. "They were kissing each other and touching each other and he said, 'Look at that. In front of my son they are doing that.' And then we were in the men's bathroom and men were kissing each other."

    "We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident," Seddique said. "We weren't aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country."

    Seddique added, "This had nothing to do with religion."

    A Fox news contributor being interviewed by phone said he's been to that club not too long ago. He said they pat down patrons as they enter. But at closing time, ie 2 a.m., most people are going out of the club. That's when the gunman entered and opened fire.

    fyi

    They pat down all patrons. Looks like that made it impossible for any patrons having a gun to stop the terrorist. I wonder if this may be a reason he choose this location.

    I live in Orlando, and this is terrifying..........local news says he entered the building already shooting, so that is how he got in............

    On the upside, they have been calling for blood donations, and there are literally thousands of people swarming around our local blood bank to donate.......
