Each time a Muslim fanatic clocks up a body count, which is to say all too often, Muslims and non-Muslims alike flock to expunge the perpetrator of their Islamic credentials.
He liked the booze? Not a Muslim. He didn’t visit the Mosque regularly? Not a Muslim.
As information begins to surface indicating that Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen may have been gay, the champions of Islamic purity come out of the woodwork.
In a show of solidarity with the people of Orlando and with LGBT people everywhere, hundreds gathered at Canal Street, Manchester today. Similar gatherings also took place in a number of cities across the UK to mourn the dead and to support the living.
Canal Street in my home city of Manchester is a sort of hub for the local LGBT community and more popularly known as ‘the gay village’ – housing a number of gay bars and restaurants.

They’re increasing in frequency, but our willingness to be honest about its root cause is sorely lacking. As this story is unfolding, there may well be mental health issues at play that we are not currently aware of. However, the fact that this explanation is actually an ‘if’ element speaks volumes about the situation we find ourselves in.
In a decision marred with controversy, Malia Bouattia has been elected president of the National Union Of Students in the U.K.
