It wasn't a probable terrorist attack, it was a probable hate crime.

Seems coordinated with Orlando. Even if that is not the case hate crimes especially ones involving mass killing is terrorism. It is meant to make people afraid of who they are. It is using violent means for intimidation to try to effect social or political change. The KKK are not just a hate group they are the oldest American terrorist organization.

The police said it's not coordinated with Orlando.

The man was a White Christian from the midwest, who is opposed to LGBT rights.

This brings to mind how a few years ago, a racist jackhole had planted a bomb at the Spokane MLK Day parade, which was luckily discovered in time.

We had those types under police protection at the Spokane pride parade, who screamed and hollered how everyone present were going to hell, which included gays, lesbians, bisexuals, us straights present, and... gasp... masturbators (let he or she who has a free hand cast the first stone)!

The point is Christians regularly attack and kill LGBT folks even at parades.

Person killing or trying to kill as many as they can for religious or personal prejudice. One is of the Muslim faith and the incident is immediatly labled terrorism, other guy is Christian so it is labled a hate crime just like the KKK was labled a hate organiization for decades, just as the Charleston, SC shooting was labled a hate crime at first, just like the killing of abortion doctors was hardly ever called terrorism. Total BS, total double standard.

Some guy or guys deciding to go out and gay bash one night is not terrorism or a guy snapping and killing a few people out hate is not terrorism. But this involved some level of planning and a symbolic populated target. Unless it turns out this guy just gets off on killing a lot people he is a terrorist.

Where are you getting this, the police have not released his name, and they said the they do not believe it is related to Orlando not that it definitely is not.

The man in Orlando was the son of Afghan immigrants and a Moslem.

Coincident, not coordinated.

I never said they didn't release his name.

You're just trying to tie it to Orlando...

But a good portion of the U.S. supports violence against LGBT people, because they believe it as defying God.
There will be more attacks on LGBT people as the bathroom issue heats up.

Not you or me, CBS news said the police have not released his name. I am trying to tie planned hate crimes carried out for religious reasons to terrorism. I do not know why we are on oppsite sides as we are both pointing out the there have been a lot of hate attacks carried out by Christians.

Well, most Christians actually don't.
All of the Christians that I know are actually praying for the victims and their families to recover.

Not all Christians are hate-filled bigots.

Thank you. I fancy myself a Christian, and went to the Spokane Pride parade yesterday, and am horrified by the violence and thwarted violence done in the name of religion.
