The assassinations in Orlando were horribly targeted at Latinos, Gays (some with same-sex spouses), Secular Americans, Open-minded Citizens by an evil ISIS-made villain drowned in psychotic propaganda intent on destroying our integrity, freedom and joyous living. The bullets came from the darkest part of one man’s soul to mow us down and throw us into fear and hate (of Muslims)–except it will never happen because we are free, diverse and compassionate as secular Latinos and open-hearted Gays.

Many stories and theories and analyses will be publicized about the terrible act and the motives behind it. My take on the causes behind it are simple (not simple): internal homophobia. The killer wanted to be gay but was terrified by such impulses. By killing other gays he was trying to kill the gay in his soul.
