    Were you outraged seeing a muslim speak at the press conference with Fla. police about the shooting?

    A muslim just shot 100 people and then you have another one on there saying it;s not the muslim religion but radicals. The shooter was an american born muslim that was sane enough to get a weapons license, This tells me that any muslim can change and become an extremist.

    The killer pledged allegiance to ISIS, and ISIS even said they were planning such an attack.  It boggles my mind that the LBGTQ community would side with the Muslims, when Muslims hates gays.  It also is annoying that Obama keeps saying we are not at war with Islam---Islam is at war with us.  Instead, blame gun control.  If we use liberals logic, how about this question?  If one man does not represent Islam, why does one man represent all gun owners?  Of course, let's get a Muslim to speak and defend this "religion of peace."  Yeah, right.

      Which religious group should they align with, the Extremist Christian who refer to them as an abomination 365 days a year, but who are now using this event for political gains? People align with "individuals" who support them and not generalize them

      The OT may say to put gays to death, but the Islam religious groups ACTUALLY DO throw them off of rooftops and kill them in other ways.  Christians DO NOT do that!  Not now that Jesus had come.

      Just because Extremist Christians do not kill gays in mass numbers does not mean a group will align with a group who treats them bad, even if less bad. Especially, if people are using a tragedy for political or other gain.

      It is the liberal reflex to sympathize with the underdog, the economically poor Muslims, when Islam suppresses business and research. And they ignore how it spread via conquest since the Medina period for 1400 years.

      At the end of the day you align with the "person" who will support you.  If 100 Muslims hate you and 2 like you, you will align with the two that like you and not toss away the entire lot.

    "Sane enough to get a weapon's license"?  Sanity doesn't seem to be much of a qualification down there, as seen by the numerous mass shootings (many of which are done by non-Muslims). 

    Anyone can become an extremist and that's not specific to Muslims.  There are Christian extremists.  There are Buddhist extremists. 

    I find it hilarious that people complain about Muslims not condemning radical Islam but then when they do you guys come out with this garbage.  Don't condemn it, they must support it.  Condemn it, and you're outraged to see them speak.  Come on, dude.

      People can be sane and buy a gun.  This guy was just evil, plain and simple.  The fact is that ISIS actually took credit for this, and that fact just happens to be ignored by almost everyone.

      Extremists take a given religion to its extreme. Buddhist extremism is to do exactly as Buddha instructed: devote whole life to meditation & compassion.  Muslim extremism is to do exactly as Mohammed instructed: murder infidels, which includes ga

      Haha, seriously? Do you pay attention to what happens in the world outside of Islamic terrorism in the west? Maybe check out what those meditating Buddhists have been up to in Burma and Sri Lanka over the past few years.

    I hate the reflexive "Islam is a religion of peace!" mantra, when saying it after every terrorist attack clearly doesn't make it so.

    And I hate the "lone wolf" narrative. He wasn't alone, not even radicalized via the internet. His mosque's leaders had been saying it was moral to kill homosexuals for years. Reference:
    'Gays must die,' says Muslim speaker at Orlando mosque, 2013
