Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is under fire for tweeting a Bible verse on Sunday after the Orlando shooting massacre at a gay nightclub that read “a man reaps what he sows.”
Omar Saddiqui Mateen killed 50 people, injured 53, some grievous, on one of the worst shooting massacres in U.S. history. He was gunned down by SWAT officers.
Patrick has since deleted the tweet, but the outrage over his action continues.
Mateen’s father said his son’s shooting rampage had nothing to do with religion but more about his anti-gay views. He recounted that his son had been upset at seeing two men kissing in Miami.
