A South Florida man is accused of making anti-gay remarks and threatening an attack larger than the Pulse massacre in a series of online posts.
Detectives said Joseph Jorczak, 34, targeted the Miami Beach Community Chruch, which is an LGBT-friendly place of worship, according to NBC affiliate WTVJ.
Jorczak was taken into custody Wednesday after he refused to answer investigators’ questions about the posts.
Police said Jorcczak posted hate-filled messages online Nov. 17 and Nov. 29, attacking the church and members of the LGBT community, saying “you cannot trust the LGBT community” and calling them “nasty people.”
In one of the posts Jorczak wrote “Orlando will look small compared to what is coming to Miami Beach.”
The pastor of the church has a restraining order against Jorczak.
Jorczak is charged with stalking, cyber stalking and violating a restraining order.
