Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick deletes "reap what you sow" tweet after mass shooting at LGBT club

WTF is wrong with people like this. They belong nowhere near a public office. This, is so F'en disgusting, words pale to describe this jerk.

http://www.chron.com/news/article/Texas-Lt-Governor-Dan-Patrick-tweets-reap-what-8076147.php

A "reap what you sow" tweet from Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick that went out hours after approximately 50 people were killed at a Florida LGBT nightclub has been deleted amid backlash.

At precisely 7 a.m. Sunday Dan Patrick tweeted a photo with the words of Galatians 6.7. The verse reads, "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."

The Twitterverse circled the tweet, commenting that it was inappropriate and insensitive considering the context of the day's events. The Texas Democratic Party called for Patrick to apologize

7. Yep...first thing I saw on Facebook a bit ago, someone posted angrily about it.

I can easily imagine what family and friends of the victims are going thru.

5. sounds to me like he is supporting an ISIS attack

Drone him, or send him to gitmo. That is what we do with Islamist terrorists, right?
