The Orlando Mass Murder Does Not Refute Heteronormativity

Homosexual Muslim, Murderer of Homosexuals: Omar Mateen, the Islamic mass-murderer who slaughtered 49 people in an Orlando “gay” nightclub, was himself involved in homosexual activity. Nevertheless, homosexual activists are exploiting the massacre to attack Christians and conservatives opposed to the immoral “gay rights” agenda.

“The shooter saw himself in the category of unmanly men, and couldn’t stand it.  Someone, he felt, had to be punished.  And he would be the punisher, thereby distancing himself from that category.” — Sharon Kass

Folks, I was watching Sean Hannity on Fox News last night and he noted how the Left is using the Orlando Islamic terror-massacre to promote gun control, but he did not mention how liberals are exploiting it to advance the homosexual activist agenda. (CNN’s openly homosexual anchor Anderson Cooper has done so rather shamelessly.) Here Sharon Kass steers us back to reality.

We at AFTAH are peaceful truth advocates and have always deplored violence and genuine hatred against ‘homosexuals’ (we do not believe in “gay” identity as inherent or permanent). Oddly, in this case, the Islamic mass-murderer, Omar Mateen, reportedly was himself involved in homosexual behavior–trying to pick up men at the Pulse “gay” night club, using the homosexual-sex-finder app Grindr (I refuse to call it a “dating app”), etc.

But even that essential fact doesn’t matter to LGBT Leftists, who chalk it all up to “homophobia” and roll it in to their ongoing campaign against Christian conservatives and biblical morality. Politically speaking, “progressives” simply will not let this crisis go to waste, to quote Rahm Emanuel, one-time Obama adviser and current Chicago mayor. Our hearts go out to the families of the Orlando victims, but we cannot stand by silently while LGBT activists and the media hijack this terribly tragedy to promote their false “gay” activist narrative. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @PeterLaBarbera

The Orlando Mass Murder Does Not Refute Heteronormativity

By Sharon Kass

June 13, 2016

“It’s a hate crime.”  The recent mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando is, predictably, being spun for maximum political effect.

The Left-liberal “logic” is as follows:  Disapproval of homosexuality is the motive for the mass murder of homosexuals; mass murder of anyone is very wrong; therefore, disapproval of homosexuality is very wrong.

Wrong:

1.  Preferential homosexuality is not innate.
 
2.  Disapproval of irrational conduct and propensities doesn’t kill anyone.
 
3.  Preferential homosexuality is both preventable and treatable. 

4.  Untreated homosexuality, whether or not acted on, leads to dangers of various sorts:  diseases, intra-relationship/liaison violence, stress-related illnesses, and health-harming activities like smoking, drug abuse, excessive drinking, and overeating.

The ironic thing is that a violent man’s violence can typically be traced to not having been socially fathered properly.  So the killer and his male victims have masculine insecurity in common.  (Key features of “gay” genesis are father failure when boy was age two, and, commonly, an extra-sensitive, often artistic, nature.)  An inappropriate urge to dominate–a kind of overcompensation for deep feelings of weakness–drives illicit violence.  The inappropriate urges to: (1) bond with another male in a sexualized way; (2) show crude strength by rebelling against nature and society; and (3) avoid the romantic-sexual challenges presented by a woman partner drive male homosexuality.  (See Joseph Nicolosi’s “The Meaning of Same-Sex Attraction” and “Fathers of Male Homosexuals.”  Also, “Attachment Loss and Grief Work in Reparative Therapy.”)

The shooter saw himself in the category of unmanly men, and couldn’t stand it.  Someone, he felt, had to be punished.  And he would be the punisher, thereby distancing himself from that category.

Personal problems often play out politically and/or religiously.  So clothed, they seem to the troubled person noble rather than pathetic.

You can find father failure in the childhoods of Timothy McVeigh, Dylann Roof, the Beltway sniper pair, and Osama bin Laden.  And Adolf Hitler, for that matter.

But when Leftists get to talking about “hate crime,” they deliberately distract from this homely truth.  Women and children aren’t supposed to need men.

But they do.  And we won’t be able to bring down the rate of violence until we face this.
