2nd Largest Terror Attack in America: 7 Things You Need to Know

Over 50 people were gunned down and killed in Orlando, Florida … and another 50 were badly wounded.

This is the second worst terrorist attack in America, after 9-11.

What we know:

  1. The gunman Omar Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS.
  2. He went to Saudia Arabia twice this year.
  3. The FBI investigated him twice before, then stopped following him.

We also know about the security job he held, that his fellow employees quit because of his radical Islamic views … and his employers did nothing about him because they did not want to seem discriminatory toward Islam.

Here are the seven things you should know about the terrible massacre at the Florida night club:

  1. Our hearts ache for those killed and hurt, as well as for their friends and families.
  1. This massacre attacked a gay night club. It could have been your church. The attack could have happened in an evangelical church. Or Jewish synagogue. This crime could have occurred at Disneyworld or a Tampa Bay baseball game.
  1. It’s Islamic Terrorism. Not violence. Not crime, and not simply domestic terrorism. The Orlando night club massacre is ISLAMIC terrorism. These Islamic terrorists are full of hate. They kill in order to create fear because to them, the enter Western World is the Great Satan. Sadly, President Obama refused to acknowledge this troublesome truth. Trump immediately called it Islamic terrorism. After calling out Hillary Clinton for not saying what it is, Clinton finally said “Islamic terrorism”, too.

Most of those who identify as LGBT have supported liberal politicians, their organizations and their donors.  But now more and more they are realizing the greatest threat worldwide is radical Islam.

Yet those same liberal politicians refuse to acknowledge it.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) said it well:

“”For all the Democrats who are loud champions of the gay and lesbian community whenever there is a culture battle waging, now is the opportunity to speak out against an ideology that calls for the murder of gays and lesbians … This is wrong, it is evil, and we must all stand against it. Every human being has a right to live according to his or her faith and conscience, and nobody has a right to murder someone who doesn’t share their faith or sexual orientation. If you’re a Democratic politician and you really want to stand for LGBT, show real courage and stand up against the vicious ideology that has targeted our fellow Americans for murder.”

  1. Based on the Koran, we are at war. Islamic extremists base their ideology on the Koran. It’s not logic. It’s not rational. It’s not loving. It’s not peaceful.

Omar Mateen was a Sunni Muslim. He shouted “Allahu Akbar”—Our God is Great, in Arabic—as he killed the helpless victims in the night club.

For killing just one infidel, Mateen’s reward (per the Koran) is Jannah, or paradise. With many more killings, he will get 72 virgins (Houri).

Whether the President accepts it or not, ISIS is at war with the West. It’s a holy war, or “jihad.”

And too many politicians are crying “Peace! Peace!” when there is none (cf. Jeremiah 6: 14; 1 Thessalonians 5: 3)

More terrorist attacks will come.

And sadly the liberal response: more political correctness.

  1. Hillary Clinton, the liberal media, and the progressive left are all calling for gun control.

Reality check: gun control will not stop these attacks. The best way to stop gun massacres is to allow citizens to carry guns to protect themselves.

Imagine if one of the club members had a concealed-carry permit and firearm? The outcome would have been much different.

  1. We pray for the victims, their families, and friends. The God of all comfort is at work, touching hearts and souls now. I tweeted on Sunday:

 

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Pulse Club: my heart is broken…God’s heart is broken…the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. -Psalm 34:18</p>&mdash; Election Forum (@Reality_Alert) <a href=”https://twitter.com/Reality_Alert/status/742049067874816009″>June 12, 2016</a></blockquote>

Even on liberal MSNBC, much of the TV footage focused on Christians, who were praying in a circle.

  1. The Church is reaching out in love.

Unlike Islam, Christians believe that everyone of us is made in God’s image, possesses intrinsic value.

This verse from the Gospel of John best sums up God’s true nature:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3: 16)

Christians believe that God did this for us, regardless of any choices we have made.

Only because of the love of Christ, touching hearts and minds, do we see so much outreach to Orlando.

Christians are even taking care of funeral and medical costs for the victims.

Calvary Chapel, Orlando is just one of the many churches reaching out. Look at this video and see the Body of Christ in action.

  1. You mentioned at one meeting that you might be speaking at Harvest Church in Riverside this fall in an election forum. Do you have the date and time yet? Sure hope this happens. We have another friend who does a small one on propositions, and I don’t want them to be the same date. Please let me know when you find out the date and time. Thank you.

  2. Please, please, please…it was not a gay nightclub. It was a HOMOSEXUAL nightclub. I am subject to the same barrage of liberal garbage as you, but I am careful to never sugarcoat that disgusting lifestyle. Many Christian/conservative writers and spokesmen use that PC term and for the life of me, I don’t get it.

  3. Actually, the worst instance of gun violence in the USA happened long ago at Wounded Knee, and was perpetrated by government forces.

  4. To Roger: Craig is not sugar coating anything by using the word “gay”, he is asking us as to show the love and compassion of Christ to the victims and their families, not their lifestyle. Only God knows your heart, but it sure sounds like you have hatred in your heart towards these victims because of their lifestyle. God is Love

    1. To David:

      Words have meaning, and God expects us to use them accurately as only truth and biblically defined love can glorify God. Conversely, the manipulation of words in a manner that makes sexual choices God specifies as “abomination” sound more acceptable, are sure to offend God. If homosexuals desire to claim the label of “gay,” this is their prerogative in a free nation such as ours. And, for those desiring to ensure accuracy by using the terms heterosexual or homosexual, instead of “straight” or “gay”, there should be no condemnation. But for you to label a man who makes a comment about what he deems to be the inappropriate assignment of the term “gay” to homosexuals, as potentially ‘having a hatred in his heart towards victims because of their lifestyle,’ is to assign intent to this man you cannot possibly verify as fact and to damage to his name. What can be verified as fact, is that assigning such godless intent to a man is in it self godless.

      And regarding your claim that, “God is love,” it would be far more biblically accurate to state that “God is love and justice.” This ‘justice side of God’ is evidenced by the fact God created hell for those not choosing Jesus Christ. And yes, those choosing homosexuality are to have the love of Christ reflected to them by Christians, while at the same time not being enabled. That said, Christians are biblically obligated to lovingly protect their children and their nation from lifestyles God specifies as “abomination,” because when such lifestyles spread throughout a nation it provokes the justice side of the very God who judges nations. Evidence for this is found in the reasons God gives for allowing the Babylonians and others to conquer the Jewish nation, and why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.
