It is unfortunate that we, as a nation, do not join together to love and support each other when tragedies occur. Instead, we seem to be more interested in looking for a group of people to blame who may or may not have anything to do with the actual perpetrator. Most gun owners would never shoot a person, nobody who truly understands the love of Christ would claim that anyone 'asks for this to happen' or 'deserves it', and not all Muslims are terrorists. We want it to be simple. We want to be able to say 'it's all their fault, so punish them and this won't happen again,' but that's not the way it works. If only we were more interested in loving each other than blaming each other.

I'm sorry that you had to endure rudeness from people for stating your opinion, but that seems to be the only way people have of expressing a thought anymore.

You're right, Troy. There is nothing new under the sun.

Thank you so much for posting this. I really needed to see at least one person talking sense since the last couple of hours have just a bunch of people spewing hate at eachother. Like you said there's a lot of Islamophobia being thrown around and while I have yet to hear any homophobic and transphobic speech being spread around this horrific event, I have noticed an utter lack of commenting on the fact that it was a gay nightclub attacked during Pride month, which is just as bad.
I think the whole western world is shell shocked over this one. There's just no rhyme or reason.
