...at gay Orlando nightclub...
"A motive has yet to be established in the Florida attack by Omar Mateen, a 29-year-old son of Afghan immigrants."Yes, Virginia... this is truly a mystery. No wonder people are abandoning mainstream media and turning to the internet for all their news needs.
In addition, instead of actually tripping over an answer that might involve some mysterious, unspecified religious practices (such as tossing gay men to their deaths off high buildings) CTV have decided to do a feelgood story on a secretly located "Unity" Mosque in Toronto.
This mosque was established, not by the usual confluence of devout neighbourhood supplicants, but by gay activist lawyer El-Farouk Khaki, who has dedicated this new place of worship to servicing the GTA's vast Muslim homosexual & transgendered community.
It's important to note, the reason El-Farouk is not giving out the location of this "mosque" is to prevent co-religionists like Orlando shooter Omar Mateen from showing up and committing serial mayhem.
Of course, once you get past that whole "death to homosexuals" thing in the Koran, there are strict and detailed requirements for establishing a mosque. I do hope Mr Farouk has followed all of the rules this 67 page pdf file I found at a Muslim website governing such things.
UPDATE: The "Raising Awareness" Chronicles
What started as a mural to mask graffiti on a Toronto garage has evolved into a touching tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting. Victoria Barrington went to an online swapping group to find an artist who would turn her garage into a vibrant art piece in her west-end neighbourhood.No wonder the new caliphate thinks we're ripe for the picking. This makes me think of a local concrete & asphalt company who painted a cement mixer pink to raise awareness of breast cancer.
"I had a lot of thoughts going through my mind as I was painting," the 27-year-old said. "We're all queer artists. It just felt that much more meaningful."
All this "virtue signalling" has apparently taken the place of actually accomplishing anything... but don't you tell that to the CBC.
