The new norm: When tragedy hits, Americans stand divided



Washington Post: “Three of the most contentious questions in American culture and politics — gay rights, gun control and terrorism — collided in a horrific way in an Orlando nightclub early Sunday.

It is not entirely clear what inspired Omar Mateen to commit the worst mass shooting in U.S. history, or what might have been done to stop it.

But it happened in a gay club, just two weeks shy of the first anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage, and on a weekend when cities across the country, including Washington, were holding gay pride festivals.

It was perpetrated during the holy month of Ramadan by an American-born man whose family originally came from Afghanistan.”

Opinion: Notice how that the progressive left Washington Post is not entirely sure what inspired Omar Mateen and that it happened during the holy month of Ramadan highlighting what divides America.

Front Page Mag: “Muhammad makes clear that Muslims should be the executors of the wrath of Allah by killing gays. A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “If you find anyone doing as Lot’s people did, kill the one who does it, and the one to whom it is done.” (Abu Dawud 38:4447) And: “Stone the upper and the lower, stone them both.” (Ibn Majah 3:20:2562)

Combine this with the fact that Islamic State spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani recently called on Muslims to use this Ramadan to “get prepared, be ready … to make it a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers…”

Unlike the aftermath of 911, America is more divided that ever:

  • The President of the United States once again blamed the gun
  • ACLU staff attorney Chase Strangio tweeted that the massacre was the “fault of conservative Christians
  • Mayor De Blasio of New York tweeted: “We mourn with the people of Orlando and the LGBT community as a whole on the news that -once again- we have lost precious lives to the gun.” Who knew that guns could be so diabolical and anti-gay?

Jesus, having been accused by the Pharisees of  working under Satan’s power said this: “ … Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25
