Who cares if Omar Mateen was gay or not?

Does it change anything if Omar Mateen was gay?  . . . "It makes no difference if he was 100% straight and hated gays and wanted to kill them because of his Muslim beliefs or a self-loathing closeted homosexual who hated gays and wanted to kill them because his sexual urges conflicted with his Muslim faith.  Either way, his Muslim religion is the motivating factor.  

"It would be significant only if he weren’t a practicing Muslim or had disavowed his faith and then massacred his fellow homosexuals out of pure hatred or self-loathing, in which case it would be prosecuted as a hate crime or murder under relevant state or federal laws versus as an act of terrorism by a radical Muslim.  To date, there is no evidence that his hatred and motivations were unrelated to and indeed untethered from his religion." . . .
While rational people all over the world understand that Mateen’s hatred of gays to the point of brutally killing them  is rooted in radical Islam and bears blame, our leaders are blaming everything but radical Islam.  This willful blindness is nothing new.  It is how 102 fellow human beings came to be victims in Orlando in the first place.
