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

Last edited Sun Jun 12, 2016, 12:03 PM - Edit history (1)

Source: Houston Chronicle

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 after tweeting a verse from the Bible.

About 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.

Even with a horror of this magnitude, the feeling of "I'm so fucking tired of this" comes almost as instantaneously as sorrow. The NRA wants us to become inured to mass murders, to feel defeated and to start waiting for the next one even before any discussion can start.

Even by Texas Republican standards, he is a piece of shit. He is a long-time Limbaugh wannabe on AM hate radio, where he has repeatedly expressed his wish for government via far right-wing theocracy. He has a history of mental problems for which he has received treatment. And he probably still has a clear opportunity to be the next governor of Texas.

32. 3 of the GOP presidential candidates spoke at a forum organized by a "death to gays" advocate.

They are among many witnessing the horrific reaping from the seeds of hatred they have sown.

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/16/opinion/campaign-stops/ted-cruz-and-the-anti-gay-pastor.html?_r=0


"EARLIER this month, in Des Moines, the prominent home-schooling advocate and pastor Kevin Swanson again called for the punishment of homosexuality by death. To be clear, he added that the time for eliminating America’s gay population was “not yet” at hand. We must wait for the nation to embrace the one true religion, he suggested, and gay people must be allowed to repent and convert.

Mr. Swanson proposed this at the National Religious Liberties Conference, an event he organized. Featured speakers included three Republican contenders for the presidency: the former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

Mr. Huckabee later pleaded ignorance. Yet a quick web search will turn up Mr. Swanson’s references to the demonic power of “the homosexual Borg,” the unmitigated evil of Harry Potter and the Disney character Princess Elsa’s lesbian agenda.

Mr. Cruz apparently felt little need to make excuses. He was accompanying another of the featured speakers at the conference: his father, Rafael Cruz — a politically connected pastor who told a 2013 Family Leadership Summit that same-sex marriage was a government plot to destroy the family.

On Saturday, father and son traveled to Bob Jones University in South Carolina to join a Rally for Religious Liberty. Among the speakers was Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, who has called L.G.B.T. activists “hateful” and “pawns” of the devil.".....

The Hell they believe in is reserving a special spot for "Christians" who mock God by hating their fellow humans for their sexuality. May peace and healing and the outpouring of love for the victims give some small measure of comfort to the loved ones left behind. Dan Patrick will reap what he has sown.

According to his own literalist approach to scripture, the proper punishment for his sin is stoning.

61. Hes right

 

After some 25 years of hate radio since they eliminated the fairness doctrine this is what we reap. We are a divided society. The republicqn party has been feeding their base with hate , hate for minorities , hate for poor people hate for anyone who is not a fellow hate filled bigot. They have vgiven safe haven for the bigoted ignorant white male. You may identify this murderer as a minority. They will all scream Muslim terrier,but it's just a white guy who hate gay people because that's what our media preaches.
I'll say that again, hate is what our media preaches. Teaches and shoves down our throats.
Yes we reap what we sow. When we sow the seeds of hate, we get mass murder.

64. I don't have the words to call this sick, evil mother****er.

And a supposedly responsible leader posted this.

I was afraid that some right wing nut job would do this.
Sadly, Dan Patrick has lived down to that expectation.

70. Jesus said not one word about homosexuality. He had a lot to say about loving others.


Matthew 22:36-40
King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

115. By my definitions my Mother

Is s conservative Christian. She believes the whole saved thru grace thing and that if you are not a Christian you are going to hell. It is why I do not tell how my thoughts have evolved over the years. No need to upset her.

But I assure you she does not agree with this POS.

My sister is in the Arts and has many gay friends who Mother welcomes into her house.

So do not confuse all conservative Christians with political conservative Christians. Mother thinks her main obligation is to love others.

Oh, and for the first time since Reagan she is voting Democratic...can't stand trump😄

And wants a female president.

Have a nice evening

The only thing the rest of the NRA-owned Republican a-holes will do is try their best to appear upset and then cut and paste the usual and utterly useless "thoughts and prayers" across their social media accounts.

75. Dan Patrick actually said he opposes the 1st Amendment.

On the Frontline special "The Texas Promise," about the state of Texas continuously cutting funding to its own school system, there is a segment where a group of BAPTIST ministers are speaking to Dan Patrick and Greg Abbott about how taxpayer funding going to parochial schools violates the 1st Amendment, and how they are concerned that it will be challenged.

Dan Patrick say, very frankly, "Well, I think taxpayer money SHOULD go to parochial schools."

Shame on the state of Texas for electing these religious fundamentalist charlatans.

87. If you're not from Texas and this is your first brush with Lt Dan...

...this isn't a slip or an accidental admission, he's like this all the time. He is an unapologetic asshole. Strike that: assholes don't deserve to be lumped in with the same lot as that scumbag. He proudly represents every hateful characteristic of the prototype self-righteous, ignorant racist, paternalistic, religious zealot you imagine when you think of Texas. He is the antithesis of light: he is a void which darkens all that is great, innovative, forgiving, creative, loving and welcoming about Texas. He is the living embodiment of the hateful caricature you don't actually believe exists. Our sinister cynical slimebag of a governor is reasonable and gracious by comparison. Lt Dan makes atheists hope for an afterlife so the evil fuck can burn for eternity suffering without the relief of a spiritual end. That he would identify with and align himself with the purely evil fuck who murdered so many hours ago is no surprise to those who are acquainted with him. I hope the blowback and suffering that is coming Lt Dan's way is in direct proportion to the love and healing and hope the best of humanity is currently offering up to the victims and families of the victims of this villainous and cowardly act of hatred. May the merciless and jealous God Lt Dan worships find no favor in his blasphemous misappropriation of His word. May God instead comfort the murdered and those left behind to grieve.

And just to be clear, in case I didn't come right out and say it, fuck Texas Lt Governor Dan Patrick.

Hugs to the victims and their families and friends and acquaintances and all those inspired and loved by them.

108. Cannot say "unchristian" because we know

too many Christians think gay should be dead! Yes, I think it's that BAD.

"Christian of faith"?!! Hahahaa. Too many of THEM are just like the Texas lieutenant governor.

"Christ" was supposedly a very compassionate person, unlike too many Christians of today.

Years ago, my southern Baptist "christian" mother said gays deserve to die from AIDS!! As an old atheist, my relationship with her has been very strained for many decades.

So, I hope you understand why I used that term now. It was a slap at "them."

Don't give me the "no a true Scotsman" argument.

That 's all that now remains, for advocating that radical Christian extremists act in the exact manner that the individual in Orlando did. If "reaping what one sows" is God's will as bestowed on the victims ("sinners" in Orlando, then how can it be interpreted otherwise?

121. Actually Patrick is right.

You do "reap what you sow."

If you invade a country, blow up the homes, killing women, children, reducing the cities to rubble, killing a million people thru the indirect as well as direct effects of the war, and setting it on a firm path toward complete obliteration, you sometimes inspire the survivors to think occasionally about "revenge." It's a messy part of life in the earth, but as Patrick said, "You reap what you sow."
