Will the media hold anti-gay politicians responsible?

Their refusal of gay marriage and equal rights laws do contribute to these acts. Will the media hold them responsible in interviews, and how easily will they be able to squirm away by saying this is totally about terrorism?

1. Are you kidding?

They found a ranter at a mosque and that's who they're holding responsible.

It couldn't be televangelists or right wing "Christian" politicians, they're all above reproach.

It couldn't be laughably lax gun laws that allowed a wife beater on the FBI watch list to buy an arsenal.

It had to be that one ranter at a mosque.

3. Omar Mateen was raised by parents who support the Taliban,

which believes that gay people deserve to be executed. And they come from a country where capital punishment for gay people is enshrined into law. I'm really not sure that US politicians saying things like "marriage is between a man and a woman" had a whole lot to do with this atrocity.
