"Mateen's father told NBC News that his son recently got angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami"

http://www.oregonlive.com/today/index.ssf/2016/06/orlando_nightclub_shooting_pro.html

Maybe one proper response to this is to have a day of national public man-kissing. I'm straight, but hell yes, I'll kiss some men if it will piss off the fucking fundamentalist shitheels. Fuck those people.

Also I'm not buying the line about "had nothing to do with religion".

8. When Daddy Phelps and crew tried to protest the university here in NM

two guys went into a soul kiss right in front of the old man. The whole crew left fast and canceled their other protests.

They were interviewed later, said they barely knew each other but it seemed like the right thing to do.

Sometimes I love this town.

2. To me that statement was meant to explain away his sons actions in two ways..

The haters who feel like him gains some sympathy... and dehumanize victims.
Cover up his own radicalism.

3. Probably.

It seems an unnecessary attempt at justification or rationalization.

Offensive on its face because, "men kissing"... yeah, so what?

7. I still think if men kissing bothers these folks so much

we should have a mass day of man-kissing.

19. This is one of those things...

 

That, in principle, I'd do. I'm sure the practical realities will require a bit of thinking. But, nothing worthwhile is easy, so they say.

10. I'm calling BS on his fathers statement.

I've read a bit about him today. He's linked to supporting radicals himself, and this was just a very pathetic attempt to get the heat off him and his own personal beliefs, and try and put it on the victims.

12. Its indicative of a mindset imho

That he thought that was a rational "explanation" to throw out there- Oh, he saw men kissing, that set him off.

16. I agree.

It's a hate he felt would resonate with others, and as such explain his sons actions without shining a light on his personal beliefs. Which speaks volumes as to what his thought process was at that moment.

13. So the son doesn't like two men kissing?

 

Did he grow up in his dad's basement chained up and stuffed away from the real world? Men kiss ALL THE TIME all over the planet!

Oooohhh boy...what a myopic fool dad and son are.
