Anti-LGBT Texas Lt. Gov. Tweets: ‘Man Reaps What He Sows’
Dan Patrick, the anti-LGBT lieutenant governor of Texas, tweeted the biblical phrase “man reaps what he sows” hours after an attack on a gay nightclub in Florida killed at least 50 people.
Patrick, a Republican, introduced legislation to force transgender students to use the bathroom of the gender listed on their birth certificates. “The one who sows to please his flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction,” the passage from Galatians 6:7 continues.
According to a Patrick spokesperson, the tweet was “pre-scheduled.” The governor's account eventually deleted the tweet entirely.
