Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: A homophobe?
Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: A homophobe?

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has deleted a tweet quoting the New Testament that he posted after the deadly Orlando nightclub shooting.

Hours after the early Sunday morning shooting at a gay nightclub that left at least 50 people dead, Patrick sent a tweet from his personal account: “Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

The tweet received harsh criticism online and Texas’ Democratic Party has called on the Republican Patrick to apologize.

The tweet was sent at around 7 a.m. and deleted four hours later. Patrick’s campaign spokesman, Allen Blakemore, strongly denied the tweet was in any way related to the Orlando shooting. He said Patrick is out of the country and often pre-schedules social media postings quoting Scripture.

Patrick is a staunch social conservative who opposes gay marriage and anti-gay discrimination protections.

  1. I don’t buy his excuses. He is a jerk and a poor representative of Texas to the nation and the world. (And I live here Texas, so I have watched this annoying man rise to the Lt. Governor’s office.)
