One Year After the Orlando Nightclub Shooting, Solidarity Continues Its Struggle Against the Forces of Division

On the morning of June 12, 2016, I awoke to the horrifying, devastating news that there had been a mass shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The scope of the tragedy was not yet clear at that point, but I already had feelings of dreadful sadness wash over me. I remember sobbing as I told my own partner what had happened at Pulse.

Forty-nine lives, overwhelmingly young and Latinx, were lost in the attack — the deadliest against the LGBTQ community in U.S. history.

As has so often been the case in the history of our country, tragedies like this show us the very worst of humanity, but they also bring out the best. The outpouring of compassion in the hours, days, and weeks following this attack infused a degree of hope into the most hopeless of situations. Within hours of the incident, attacks on Muslim, Arab, Middle Eastern, and South Asian communities began from anti-Muslim rhetoric to incidents of harassment and violence.

But the LGBTQ community would not let their tragedy beget more tragedy. In the midst of their own trauma and mourning, the LGBTQ community made clear that they would not stand silent while Muslims were attacked. And standing side-by-side with the LGBTQ community were Muslim communities, holding fundraisers for the victims and their families, donating blood, and offering statements of unity and solidarity. For many, this was the first show of support between these communities, while for others, including LGBTQ Muslims, it was much-needed love and solidarity in a moment of heartbreak.

Those who perpetuate attacks of violent hate do so with the goal of sowing division and turning us against each other. Time and time again, we see them fail. As President Barack Obama reminded the nation just hours after the attack:

So this is a sobering reminder that attacks on any American — regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation — is an attack on all of us and on the fundamental values of equality and dignity that define us as a country. And no act of hate or terror will ever change who we are or the values that make us Americans.

Over the past year, we have seen, sadly, still more violence perpetuated against individuals because of who they are, whom they love, or how they worship. In each case, we have seen communities come together and stand in solidarity to make clear that hateful violence does not represent us. We are better than that. We have each other’s backs and will not be divided.

On this one-year anniversary of the tragedy at Pulse, that is the lesson that we should all seek to emulate.

We have right to wonder with evangelical Christians (I'm not Christian) who say they sympathize with Orlando victims, are they being fake?I say this because Peter J. LaBarbera, Minister Scott Douglas Lively, Clifford P. Kincaid have over the years called gays & lesbians pedophiles, compared gays to Nazis and Fascists such as call them homofascists, but when Orlando happened, they gave sympathy. When I spoke to Min. Scott Douglas Lively on June 9, 2017, I told him that I'm not Christian and that it would not suprise me if it's true that 1 or more of the 2016 Orlando shooting victims were pedophiles, drug junkies & or drug dealers.

Scott Douglas Lively admitted that it would not surprise him if 1 or more of the Orlando shooting victims were pedophiles and or drug junkies, though Scott Douglas Lively did not write this in his sympathy article. Scott Douglas Lively has in past called gays and lesbians Nazis with his book Pink Swastika that it could be that Scott Douglas Lively does not care about the Orlando shooting.

I don't think Michael L. Brown is surprised by Christians such as Roger O. Jimenez who call the Orlando victims pedophiles.
Pastor Roger O. Jimenez and Steven L. Anderson are honest in what they say they have no sympathy for Orlando victims. On websites like Charisma, posters have said the same things as Pastor Roger O. Jimenez, only with milder language than Pastor Roger O. Jimenez. Charisma posters gave sympathy to Orlando victims and condemned Pastors Roger O. Jimenez and Steven L. Anderson, but again, Charisma writers and posters say the same things that Pastors Roger O. Jimenez and Steven L. Anderson, only that Charisma posters have used milder language.

Yes, in any mass shooting or mass murder, it's possible that 1 or more of the victims are bad people, because individuals are different and not every1's a nice person. We still punish murder because even if 1 of the victim is a bad person. If some1 goes into a shopping mall and shoots and kills many people, the mass murderer must be punished, even if it turns out 1 of the shopping mall victims was a convicted felon with a violent criminal record, because it's not the mass murderer's place to be judge, jury and executioner.

With Orlando, you're right that Omar S. Mateen had no right to go into a Orlando gay club and shoot so many people which killed over 40 and wounded many, even if it's true that 1 or more of the Orlando shooting victims were pedophiles and or drug junkies or even drug dealers. If it's true that 1 or more of the Orlando shooting victims was a pedophile, drug dealer, etc., then it's the cops job to arrest them & help the prosecutors prove they're guilty. If convicted, then they go to prison. I don't disagree with that. Besides, I'm mostly against the death penalty.

The reason I mention that it would not surprise me if it turns out that 1 or more of the Orlando victims were pedophiles and or drug junkies is because in gay bashing cases, too often & not surprisingly, the media pushes hero or 'queero worship' of the victims because the victims a homosexual. With Orlando so far, there was a music video in 2016 by musician Sia called Greatest which implies we should worship the Orlando victims.

People are offended by me saying that possibly 1 or more of the Orlando victims were pedophiles & or drug dealers. As it’s a gay/lesbian pub, wouldn’t surprise me if drugs were sold & some victims were pedophiles since gays & lesbians (esp. gays) were often pedophile victims & pedophile victims often turn out to be gay pedophiles in adulthood.

In gay/lesbian pubs-drugs like Meth, Extasy are sold as drug junkyism high among them. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out 1 or more of the Orlando victims were pedophiles & or drug dealers. While it’s irrelevant to fact mass murder is wrong, it’s relevant to idea of worshiping the victims, as just because some1 is a murder victim doesn’t change ugly facts of who they were before they were killed. Murder is wrong but that doesn’t mean worship murder victim. Incidentally, I am not a Christian.

I don't think Michael L. Brown is surprised by Christians such as Roger O. Jimenez who call the Orlando victims pedophiles. Pastor Roger O. Jimenez and Steven L. Anderson are honest in what they say they have no sympathy for Orlando victims.
As I have read gay posters say when they have commented on Charisma regarding Charisma posters and writers-Charisma posters have said the same things as Pastor Roger O.

Linda P. Harvey wrote ‘not one person I know would ever recommend or condone violent actions. We would all try to help save these lives if called upon.’

Charisma’s homosexual posters have said that while the # of Christians who think the Orlando killing was justified is far less than it was years ago, there are Christians who think the Orlando killing was justified but are usually too shy to admit that. Unsure how 1 can call gays pedophiles, fascists and compare them to Nazis, but then sympathize when them when they get killed in a shooting.

I used to spend time on different websites defending Linda P. Harvey from those who want to censor her. Linda P. Harvey even read in May 2014 and November 2015 letters I had written to her where she mentioned that 1 does not have to be Christian to be against transexuality and she used my letters as an eg. of a non-Christian who agrees with her.

But since May 2016, Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey has been a disappointment. I still listen to her, but her excuses and justifications for President DJ Trump is among reasons why I am disappointed. Before President DJ Trump was nominated, evangelical Christians such as Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey was talking about how DJ Trump would be a bad President, such as the fact DJ Trump owns casinos with gambling, etc. In March 2016, Linda P. Harvey did broadcasts where she lectured on how DJ Trump would be bad for America.

But after DJ Trump won the Presidential nomination and since then, Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey has been pro-President DJ Trump. I think that Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey has justified to herself on who DJ Trump is. President DJ Trump has not changed. If President DJ Trump has changed, then 1 of the first things he would do is close his casinos and bring down the price of his hotels.

It would have been better if Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey had been silent and said nothing about the Orlando victims and their families. Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey has for years called homosexuals pedophiles and don’t see how Linda P. Harvey can sincerely give condolences for the Orlando victims, people who she thinks are pedophiles. It’s best to say nothing when people you hate dies and not to give fake sympathy.

We have right to wonder with evangelical Christians who say they sympathize with Orlando victims, are they fake? Peter J. LaBarbera, Minister Scott Douglas Lively, Clifford P. Kincaid have over the years called gays & lesbians pedophiles, compared gays to Nazis and Fascists such as call them homofascists, but when Orlando happened, they gave sympathy.

LaBarbera acted surprised (though it’s unsurprising) by Pastor Roger O. Jimenez and Steven L. Anderson calling the Orlando victims pedophiles. I don’t see Peter J. LaBarbera’s critique because Peter J. LaBarbera has said the same things as Pastors Steven L. Anderson and Roger O. Jimenez have. Again, Pastor Roger O. Jimenez is honest in what he says.

People whether you’re Christian, non-Christian or atheist need to stop being shocked @ the comments of Pastor Steven L. Anderson and Pastor Roger O. Jimenez. Peter J. LaBarbera (Americans for Truth) needs to stop using the words shocking because it is not shocking. Peter J. LaBarbera (Americans for Truth) has said the same things that Pastor Steven L. Anderson and Pastor Roger O. Jimenez have.

Homosexual posters on Charisma are right when they say that Charisma writers have said the same thing as Pastor Roger O. Jimenez did where he called gays pedophiles. Pastor Roger O. Jimenez and Steven L. Anderson honestly say what they think about the Orlando victims being pedophiles and not trying to hide this.

I want to go into women’s bathrooms if there are pretty women in there & if a pretty woman wants to use men’s bathrooms, then that is fine with me. I want a pretty woman to go into men’s bathrooms but I wouldn’t want uglies like Ellen Lee DeGeneres and Rosie T. O’Donnell shitting in any bathroom as they’re ugly so Ellen & Rosie can shit in diapers. Ellen Lee DeGeneres & Rosie T. O’Donnell both probably like to have farting & shitting contests in bathrooms, so Ellen & Rose both want to do battleshits contest in men’s bathrooms since women’s toilets got dirtied by them.

If you go to women's locker rooms such as in a gym, you can see women changing & if there are beautiful women in there changing, then yes, I'd like to see that, esp. if a woman's has nice big natural boobs. If a man can find a woman in the women's locker room who wants to have sex with a man, then he'll take her home. Also when a woman pees, farts and shits in the bathroom, she has to get bottom nude in order to sit down on toilet to pee, fart and shit.

Men would like for pretty women to go into men's bathrooms & men want to be able to go into women's bathrooms if there are pretty women in there. Men don't want other men shitting there & most men would rather see a pretty nude woman in men's bathroom & men want to go into women's bathrooms to see pretty women naked.

Turns out that with exceptions such as Sia's 2016 song Greatest, the 2016 Orlando gay night club shooting victims have not usually gotten the same 'queero worship' as Harvey B. Milk (1930-1978) and Metthew Wayne Shepard (1976-1998). Reason likely the 2016 Orlando shooting has not gotten the same coverage as the other 2 cases is because in the United States, we have had so many mass shootings before and since then, such as October 2017 Las Vegas shooting.

Now I support gun control. I think that if you want to own a gun, you should go through the same reqts. as getting a car such as licensing, insurance, etc. I don't want people who don't understand guns owning guns for the same reasons that I don't want people who don't understand cars driving cars. Handguns and rifles subject to regulations, licensing and insurance can be owned by ordinary citizens, though it would be better if most people who owned guns were in police, law enforcement, security guards and the military owning the most sophisticated weapons. Military style weapons should only be owned by military. Machine guns, tanks, missiles and atomic weapons, etc. must only be owned by military.

But getting back to the 2016 Orlando shooting. People are offended by me saying that possibly 1 or more of the Orlando victims were pedophiles & or drug dealers. In gay/lesbian pubs-drugs like Meth, Extasy are sold as drug junkyism high among them. With pedophilia, many gays were molested as children which ruined their sexuality & some even turn out to be pedophiles. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out 1 or more of the Orlando victims were pedophiles & or drug dealers.

I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the Orlando victims thought it’s OK to push H.B. Milk day in schools & I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the Orlando victims were apologists for gay/lesbian pedophilia. While most gays & lesbians are not pedophiles, gays & lesbians are more likely to support pedophilia when it’s gay/lesbian as gay groups or their friends such as Shepard Foundation’s JC Marsden, Judy L. Shepard, Big Island Chronicle Tiffany Camille Edwards Hunt, etc. also supports gay pedophile H.B. Milk incl. pushing Harvey B. Milk day on schoolkids. No, not all gays & lesbians support pedophilia but honestly, gays & lesbians are more likely to tolerate pedophilia when it’s gay/lesbian.

People like Omar S. Mateen are dangerous & unpredictable. I don’t want mass murders & Omar S. Mateen should have been in prison. I don’t think people should be allowed to own military weapons & I believe that if you want to own a gun, you should go through same reqt. as owning a car such as background checks, licensing, gun training & insurance. But again, I don’t martyr or worship people’s lives because they were murdered. If a drug dealer is murdered, I believe in punishing the 1 who committed murder. However, I don’t martyr the drug dealer’s life. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out 1 or more of the Orlando victims were pedophiles & or drug dealers. I’m not going to martyr the victim’s lives esp. if it turns out 1 or more of the victims were drug dealers & or pedophiles.

There are even individual homosexuals and lesbians who admit that it's possible 1 or more of the June 2016 Orlando victims were drug junkies, drug dealers & or even pedophiles. Individual homosexuals and lesbians (including gay websites) don't dispute that in gay/lesbian pubs-drugs like Meth, Extasy are sold as drug junkyism high among them.

Also with Orlando, there were teenagers in that gay/lesbian pub before that June 2016 shooting. It's a crime for people under 21 years old to be in a pub which sells alcohol. As there were underage teenagers in a pub, it wouldn't be surprising if it turns out that there were pedophiles seeking teenagers in the Orlando gay/lesiban pub that night, before the shooting. I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out that 1 or more of the Orlando victims were drug junkies, drug dealers & or even have a violent past of harassing young men for sex and then attacking them when they didn't get what they wanted in a drug rage. As said, people have been offended by me saying that it wouldn’t surprise me if 1 or more of the victims were pedophiles & or drug junkies + drug dealers.

No, it wasn't Omar S. Mateen's place to be their jury and executioner, even if it's true that 1 or more of the Orlando shooting victims were drug junkies, drug dealers & or a pedophile. If true that 1 or more of the Orlando shooting victims was that, then it's the cops job to arrest them & help the prosecutors prove they're guilty. If convicted, then they go to prison. But I don't worship and the victims. I don't believe the Orlando shooting victims should be worshiped as though they're heroes, esp. if it turns out 1 or more of the victims were drug dealers, pedophiles, etc.

But there are homosexuals and lesbians who admit that in gay/lesbian pubs, the most common crimes are drunk driving (though there are dramshop laws which require designated drivers and forbid selling alcohol to people who are doing to drink and drive) and that in some cases violence happens in gay/lesbian pubs even with bouncers such as a homosexual or lesbian who gets drunk & or high on drugs in a pub, harasses another customer for sex and then commits a violent assault and battery against the customer they were harassing, inside or outside gay/lesbian pubs. There are so many more of these crimes described which happen including many more cases of transgenders mixing Cocaine, Meth, etc. with the hormone shots they take & a violent combining.

But the far more common crimes described by me get little to no coverage by most journalists because of journalists pro-gay, lesbian and transgender agenda. Many people including me don't trust what most reporters say on controversial topics such as this because most journalists will say what's ½ true and report ½ facts. I don't trust media coverage of gay bashing cases and I do not trust information given by homosexual groups because it's ½ facts to even dishonesty such as omiit ugly facts of who the victims were before their deaths. Homosexual groups along with most journalists who talk about gay bashing cases hope people accept their conclusions. omosexual groups and most journalists dislike being challenged on topics like this especially when you point out the ½ facts, point out what they are omitting and they (homosexual groups and journalists) hate it even more when people reach a different conclusion from what homosexual groups and most reporters are saying.

Of course, most assault and battery cases don't get reported in the news. But if journalists were interested in neutrally reporting and not pushing an agenda, then the reporters would report more on crimes which happen in homosexual/lesbian pubs, instead of reporting ½ facts.
