    Although it was immediately known that the target was a gay bar and that the shooter was Muslim, no one condemned this as a "hate crime" at the time (or since). Ever wonder why? Because to do that would mean we would have to examine what drove the shooter to do what he did - and that leads right to the preachings of Islam. Notice now how reports state that the killer was gay, but with virtually no evidence. If he was gay, then he certainly didn't lead a typical gay lifestyle. For one thing he was married with a...

    Whenever a shooting event, like the murder-suicide at UCLA, gains national notoriety, there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth over “our” alleged failure to deal adequately with issues of “mental health.” Tragically, it is the rarest of figures who dares to challenge this consensus. But challenge it we must, for as innocuous as the term sounds, “mental health” is fraught with philosophically problematic assumptions and implications. First, the sole reason for concluding that, say, Mainak Sarkar, the UCLA gunman, is “mentally ill” is that he became a murderer. Yet this in turn logically implies that anyone who murders is...
