Orlando Shooter’s Father Says Son Shouldn’t Have Killed All Those People Because ‘God Will Punish Those Involved In Homosexuality’

This is absolutely disgusting.

Hatred begins at home.

We’re still struggling to process the terrible tragedy that rocked Orlando over the weekend, and it makes us sick knowing that the LGBT community was intentionally targeted.

Omar Mateen killed 49 people — the death toll has since been changed from 50 to exclude the gunman — and injured dozens more early Sunday morning when he opened fire on PULSE nightclub.

The 29-year-old pledged his allegiance to ISIS in a 911 call he made during the senseless shooting, but his father, Seddique Mir Mateen, insisted his son’s actions stemmed from a homophobic mentality rather than religious motives.

However, on Monday, the killer’s parent took to Facebook to express his own anti-LGBT beliefs in a video, saying:

“God will punish those involved in homosexuality.”

He also added that it is “not an issue that humans should deal with.”

We are so unbelievably repulsed by this.

Seddique, who has posted pro-Taliban messages in the past, also said in the clip that he was “not aware what motivated [Omar] to go into a gay club and kill 50 people.”

We find this incredibly difficult to believe, considering Mateen JUST spewed so much hate himself.

Is it really so surprising his son felt this way if that’s the message you were preaching??

We are absolutely devastated about what happened at the Orlando gay club this weekend, and our hearts are with everyone affected by this truly horrific attack.
