We should link to this story everytime fundies accuse atheists of being violent.

a mind far far away
I read this, and thought, this is the end result of fundy brainwashing. And they want to bitch about Muslims and liberals, and then do some stupid shit like this, or blow up an abortion clinic, or a sporting arena. At least Muslim terrorists are honest with themselves.

I seriously hope there will come a time when organizations and individuals comprising the Religious Right, the Republican Party, and Rupert Murdoch's media outlets are held to account for the hate-filled propaganda which drive people like this sorry bastard over the edge.
Yeah, yeah...first amendment rights, I know.

Fear and hatred bred of ignorance and cultivated by religion.

When rednecks hit rock bottom. Seems like they do what they normally do.

Christian Fundies like respond to claims that they're similar to the radical Muslims by saying "WE don't commit any terrorist attacks and kill people who are different from us!"

We will now run a scheduled test. Please wait...

I haven't mentioned this around these parts before, but I'm an atheist and I'm a member of a UU fellowship in Pennsylvania. The way that UU church responded to it (complete with a "My Turn" article by the minister in a Newsweek magazine a couple of months ago) proves that openness to differing viewpoints is far superior to fundamentalism.

I am so glad that I (Tex/Mex Native American with a touch of Euro) and my Chinese hubby don't attend church. People like you need to be expunged.

"The last set of statistics I saw related to guns use was that only 2% of use was for personal protection."
That may (not) be true, but:
"The vast majority was little Johnny blowing his playmate's head off,"
That is (usually) a mistake. If it isn't, it is due to lack of education in the school of "DO NOT TOUCH, REALLY, I MEAN IT, JUST DON'T!". If it is honest to god deliberate, than said kid is a monster and might have beaten his
playmate victim's head in with a rock if one was more convenient at the time.
"or Uncle Joe getting suicidal,"
Very sad. Go ahead and play the pity card, he would have overdosed on Valium and liquor instead. He
is was probably depressed because of YOU.
"a domestic argument excalating,"
Knives. Furniture. Poison. Bare hands. Fucking road rage. I could list more. I have a dirty mind.
"someone going postal,"
"a gun stolen and subsequently used in a crime"
Now that is one valid point. (It's all you're gonna get from me.) That is why guns should be, although legal, EXTREMELY regulated. Moderation in all things, my good
"or something else."
Hunting. Collection and display. Line of duty. Self defense, which I relist because it must be at least a little more than 2%. ESPECIALLY line of duty. Do you hate
America the entire fucking universe? I think you do.
I'm not a soldier. I don't know any martial discipline. I'm only barely computer-savvy enough to be a
hacker script kiddie hobbyist. I can barely press 50 pounds, I have disturbingly little agility, and I'm functionally retarded.
But I swear on this good green earth that I will find a way to end your madness once and for all, be it by reason, manipulation or force. If I have one thing, it is mule-headed force of will. My family will help me. My friends will help me. Years may pass, but I will find you. I will deal with you. And then you will no longer be a threat to freedom.
You have been admonished.

@Alien Acid: Lol. I'm not even sure how serious you are. But yeah gun restrictions as opposed to bans, bans are never as good as regulation. I mean just look at drugs and prohibition lol.
Anyway this nutjob needed some serious help. I mean I may not like religion but going into a church and shooting random families on their sunday tradition is just wrong.

Given that I am both an avowed atheist and a soon-to-be UU (I will be joining a society in the Midwest this Tuesday), I have to concur with Mudak and laud the congregation.
As for the original poster all I have to say is this: Sure, fundamentalism is a valid viewpoint (there are after all no right or wrong answers and just because I may personally find them wrong does not necessarily make them so), but taking anything to violence isn't a legitimate way of expression.
Thus this man should be locked away for the rest of his life lest he harm society.

"Catherine Murray, who was friends with the couple, told police Adkisson had drug and alcohol problems and 'basically was afraid of anybody or anything that was not like him.'"
But he was a good, Christian man.

I remember seeing this one a few months ago. Still a crazy nut with a gun.

Crap. I think I got the clonepost bug. Sorry.

Sad to say, the next assmunch who does this will likely be a friend of my father's, who already thinks he's on "Obama's hit list." Idjit's scared of his own shadow.

No, if you wanna kill yourself, don't take anyone with you. It makes you look like a psychotic dick.

Liberals = problem.
Gun toting, murdering lunatics = solution.
PRAISE THE LORD!

I can already hear the claims of, "Well, at least he wasn't a true Christian," and, "See! This is what the Eviluitonary/liberal ideology gets you, and this is why we all need God/conservatism."
"So...this guy walked into a church...with a sawed-off shotgun...opens fire at random on a group of total strangers...
...and it's the liberals that are the problem????"
According to Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, and a whole host of conservative pundits, Yes. Because remember, Liberals are actually secretly plotting to overthrow the Christian Conservative Goverment that is responsible for everything good in the world.

He had books by all of the above in his house.
As well as Savage's book as well.
