Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick tweets "reap what you sow' verse after mass shooting at LGBT club





Hours after approximately 50 people were killed at a Florida LGBT nightclub in what federal officials are investigating as an act of terrorism, the lieutenant governor of Texas is receiving backlash for tweeting a verse from the Bible.

At precisely 7 a.m. Sunday Dan Patrick tweeted a photo with the words of Galatians 6. The verse reads, "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

He has a history of anti-LGBTQ attitudes.

1. Just another example that 99.999% of gay hating is based on

religious beliefs.

And that means that said hate is more than justified in the eyes of the believer.

2. I agree. We have sowed violence and hate to gun toting fools. So,

naturally we are reaping murder and intolerance from those same gun toting fools.

that somehow these victims deserved this kind of violence.

Disgusting.

5. Dan Patrick sows bigotry and hatred.

May he reap what he sows, and may the harvest be bountiful.

6. He is saying this because it was a gay bar, what we are reaping is the gutless congressional members

Who are unable to pass gun control bills. Was the nine praying people in a church reaping what they had sown.

Dan Patrick has been an a$$hole for years, he was as a sports caster, he was as a senator in Texas who walked out of a session becauseva Muslim was leading the prayer and now he wants to praise a muslim terrorists who kills people in a gay bar. He is a sick person, rather than having sympathy for people who have died and their families.

8. Well...

...with all the extreme weather and flooding that have been hitting his state I wonder if he has any thoughts on what Texas is "reaping" right now.

12. To be expected. Evangelists will be coming out spewing this crap.

They give true Christians such a bad name. Much like these radical arms of Islam.
