Lt. Gov. Patrick deletes bible verse tweet posted hours after Orlando massacre

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick (R) is being criticized for tweeting a verse from the Bible just a few hours after 50 people were killed at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Patrick tweeted a photo with the verse from Galatians 6:7.

It states, “Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

The Lt. Governor has since removed the Tweet and replaced it with a message stating the Tweet was not in response to last night’s shooting, it was scheduled last Thursday.

“Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and every Texas is stunned and saddened by the outrages act of domestic terrorism that has occurred in Orlando,” the lieutenant governor’s office said in a statement.

“We regret the unfortunate timing of these posts and ask everyone and to join us in praying for the people of Orlando in this awful time,” the statement read.
