Omar Matteen murdered 49 people and wounded 53 more at a gay nightclub in Florida called Pulse. During the attack, Omar called 911 to pledge allegiance to ISIS and express sympathy for the Boston Marathon bombers. His father says he was inspired by seeing two gay men kissing.
Some Regressive Liberals claim that Islamophobia is a bigger problem than anti-gay sentiment in the Muslim world. This article contains citations from Islamic scripture to help you decide.
“The Prophet said: If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.”
Sunan Abi Dawud 4462
“If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.”
Sunan Abi Dawud 4463
“Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people.
But the answer of his people was only that they said, “Evict them from your city! Indeed, they are men who keep themselves pure.” So We saved him and his family, except for his wife; she was of those who remained [with the evildoers]
And We rained upon them a rain [of stones]. Then see how was the end of the criminals.”
“Do you approach males among the worlds. And leave what your Lord has created for you as mates? But you are a people transgressing.” They said, “If you do not desist, O Lot, you will surely be of those evicted.” He said, “Indeed, I am, toward your deed, of those who detest [it]. So We saved him and his family, all, Except an old woman among those who remained behind.
Then We destroyed the others.
And We rained upon them a rain [of stones], and evil was the rain of those who were warned.”
Qur’an 26: 165-173
“The Prophet cursed effeminate men (those men who are in the similitude (assume the manners of women) and those women who assume the manners of men, and he said, “Turn them out of your houses.” The Prophet turned out such-and-such man, and ‘Umar turned out such-and-such woman.”
Sahih Bukhari 72:774
“And the two (men) who commit it (intercourse) among you, dishonor them both. But if they repent and correct themselves, leave them alone.”
Islamic ideology clearly advocates killing homosexuals. This is unacceptable and should be unequivocally denounced by all people, including “moderate” Muslims.
There is no good excuse for following a Prophet (Muhammad) that commands his followers to kill homosexuals. There is no good excuse to defend people (Muslims) who submit to such a Prophet. Moderate Muslims and Regressive Liberals share blame for the Orlando shooting.
If you are a Muslim and you are considering leaving Islam, know that you are not alone. Hundreds of millions of Muslims share your doubt but hide their feelings because they are scared of being abandoned by friends and family, or killed for apostasy. This too is unacceptable.
Fortunately, many brave people have taken the step to free themselves from the ideological slavery that is Islam. They have formed groups to offer support, companionship and protection to fellow ex-Muslims.

If you are a Regressive Liberal trying to silence criticism of Islam following the Orlando shootings, you are a coward.
