A 'gay' Muslim Democrat walks into a bar...

Sadly, it's no joke.

In the wake of the Orlando ISIS bloodbath, the rational world now gazes through the looking glass, jaws agape, into the up-is-down, male-is-female, Muslim-is-Christian alternate universe in which resides America's caterwauling left.

An Islamic terrorist (a closeted homosexual, according to friends and ex-wife), registered Democrat and admitted Islamic State jihadi enters a "gay" bar wherein, reportedly, he regularly cruised for random homosexual hook-ups, and slaughters 49 "infidels."

Naturally, secular "progressives," to include the New York Times editorial board, have, rather than addressing the Allahu Akbar-yelping camel in the tent, twisted themselves into tiny little knots of self-righteous indignation to somehow blame American Christians, Republicans, and the NRA. (I address this surreal phenomenon exhaustively in my new book, "Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity.")

Ban guns? No thank you, comrade. There are as many guns in America as people – over 300 million. While we're at it, lets ban beer steins and put an end to drunk driving. Christians to blame? Such farcical pablum tells us more about the liberals who believe it than it does a single Christian. (As if they really do believe it. Nobody's that stupid. This is Alinskyite propaganda with a purpose.)

One thing and one thing alone is responsible for the deaths of 49 club-going revelers – precious souls, each – last Sunday in Orlando. It is the global menace of Islam: a despotic socio-political system based on the incoherent and pseudo-religious ravings of a warring tyrant who, as even the Quran concedes, was a murderous anti-Semite and anti-Christian misogynist and pedophile, hell-bent on world domination (Islamic caliphate).

In reality, Christ and his followers deeply love the LGBT-identified community enough to tell them the truth about a sin-centric lifestyle that leads to emotional, spiritual and, with rampant AIDS, syphilis and other STDs increasingly endemic to the lifestyle, even physical death. We pray that each and every person who identifies as "LGBT" might come to repentance and salvation through Christ Jesus, who is the only Way to eternal Life.

By contrast, Allah the deceiver and his followers kill homosexuals, not out of hate, though it is hateful, but out of "compassion." They actually believe they're being compassionate by killing "gays" because the Quran and the imams tell them so. (Mateen most likely targeted his fellow "gays" in an attempt to garner absolution from Allah for sodomy).

Indeed, even after Sunday's horror, the dhimmi left nonetheless defiantly, and obtusely, refuses to acknowledge the scourge of orthodox Islam. They prefer, for both political and spiritual reasons, to vilify Christian "homophobes," Republicans, and the NRA.

Even so, beyond the Orlando slaughter, homosexuals continue to be, at this moment, "lawfully" executed in Saudi Arabia, Obama's coddled Iran, and dozens of other Muslim nations across the globe. We're all victims of Islam, you see. Muslim nations summarily hang, stone, and behead both Christians and homosexuals. We're all persecuted – sinners and saints (one and the same) – and will only become more so as incompetent (dare I say seditious?) Western leaders like Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton aimlessly tilt at windmills.

Islamic Shariah law requires the persecution of all non-Muslims. Curiously, it's the same cowardly leftists disingenuously accusing Christians of "anti-gay hate" stateside who remain silent while homosexuals are, in point of fact, regularly executed by Muslims both abroad and, as of Orlando, right here at home.

This is due to the fact that orthodox Christians, who are spiritually imbued with the love of Christ, are perceived as soft targets by both progressives and Muslims, while orthodox Muslims, who are spiritually imbued with the hate of Muhammad, are not.

In other words, bullies steer clear from picking fights with bigger bullies.

But it's also because Christ is Truth. Truth is the enemy of "progressivism," just as Truth is the enemy of Islam. They each derive from the same antichrist spirit. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

Yet somehow orthodox Muslims missed the "Hey-we're-on-the-same-side-here!" memo. While, as we've seen yet again, politically correct progressives will trip over themselves to avoid criticizing Islam and, with perplexing incongruity, even promote it, adherents to "the religion of peace" will gleefully murder the poor lemmings while they do so.

Muhammad taught, and the Quran stresses, that a central tenet of Islam is to convert, enslave or kill the infidel. An infidel is anyone who is not Muslim or, depending on who's doing the killing, belongs to a different sect of Islam. Those who fall into that elusive, perpetually mute category tagged "moderate Muslim" are also infidels or "idolaters." They're bad Muslims, and, so, according to the Quran, not Muslims at all. "When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them," commands Surah 9:5. "Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them." Faithful Muslims, true followers of Muhammad, "slay the idolaters wherever [they] find them" (see ISIS, Hamas, Omar Mateen, et al.).

It's what faithful Muslims do.

On the other hand, Jesus taught His followers, who are called Christians, to "do to others what you would have them do to you" (see Luke 6:31); that, "You shall not murder" (see Matthew 19:18); and that we are to "love [our] enemies and pray for those who persecute [us]" (see Matthew 5:44). It goes without saying that those who do not follow these teachings are not Christ followers.

Indeed, while many may claim to be "Christian," the word only applies to those who are justified in Christ, spiritually reborn and regenerated through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit. The true Christian walks in Christ's steps through faith and obedience.

Terrorism and the hatred of persons are in direct disobedience to Christ.

Yet they are in direct obedience to Muhammad.

Whereas "Muslim extremists," that is, faithful Muslims, kill people extremely, "Christian extremists," that is, faithful Christians, love people, including their enemies, extremely.

As I've said before, Islam is Christianity's photo-negative. While Christianity brings eternal life to those choosing to surrender to Jesus, who alone is "the Way, the Truth and the Life," Islam brings eternal death to those who surrender to Allah, who is "the best of deceivers" ("[A]nd Allah was deceptive, for Allah is the best of deceivers." [see Surah 3:54]).

And so, to those in the "LGBT"-identified community, Mr. Obama, Mrs. Clinton, the New York Times and other progressives who have smeared, and continue to smear, Christian Americans in the blood of 49 souls who died at the hands of ISIS in Orlando, know this: We don't hate you. We grieve with you and are praying for you in this shared time of national tragedy.

We also love you.

And we forgive you.

Because you know not what you do.
