In the days following the Orlando terrorist attack, some media and leftist political groups have put the blame on Christians.
In National Review, David French, a staff writer, wrote that the attack was a textbook example of Islamic jihadism.
Yet, somehow the massacre has put Christians on the defense.
“It’s really one of the more remarkable things that I’ve ever seen,” French told CBN News. “So no less than The New York Times editorial board wrote an entire editorial after Orlando, focusing on the challenges to gays and lesbians in our culture and did not mention ISIS, did not mention Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, did not mention the Orlando shooter’s faith or motivations, but instead spent time talking about Greg Abbott of Texas, the governor of Texas, Pat McCrory of North Carolina, the governor of North Carolina, and the transgender bathroom controversy as if that had anything at all to do with a radical jihadist pledging allegiance to ISIS and killing members of the LGBT community. It had nothing to do with it at all.”
“It’s taking the focus off of the actual enemy, who’s killed real Americans and putting it on domestic political opponents who not only haven’t killed anybody, they completely abhor and shun and condemn any and all acts of violence,” French continued.
