A man reaps what he sows

So what does the lieutenant governor of Texas do? He composes a “reap what you sow” tweet and shares it with the sinful world.

This tweet was sent out from Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick's account hours after a mass shooting an LGBT nightclub in Florida. Click the gallery to see some responses.

At precisely 7 a.m. Sunday Dan Patrick tweeted a photo with the words of Galatians 6:7. The verse reads, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

That’s so horrific in so many ways. One, he’s a high official in a state government – the largest state in the country in fact, with a population of 27 million. Two, he’s saying the victims had it coming. Three, he’s citing “God.” Four, he’s more than hinting that the reason the victims had it coming is because God hates fags. Five, it’s cruel cruel cruel cruel, and wicked and bad and evil. The bad immoral wicked person in this story is not the one who is not heterosexual, it’s the fanatical sadist state official.

Allen Blakemore with Patrick’s office told the Dallas Morning News that the tweet was prescheduled and not a reaction to the shooting, noting, “This was certainly not done with any fore knowledge of the events of the day.”

Another verse was tweeted from the account 30 minutes later, this time from Psalm 37:39, which reads, “The Salvation of the righteous come from the Lord; He is their stronghold in time of trouble.”

State officials should keep their bible snippets to themselves.
