Atheist = shooter ?!
Cam across an interesting thread in a different forum.
Someone talks about how his school labelled him a potential shooter because he was more introverted , listened to metal and was (gasp) an atheist.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/r...Watch-List

Quote:"Grades: Excellent, excels in science.
Interests: Shows an interest in death and goth culture.
Music Choice: Heavy metal, shows interest in death.
Religion: Atheist, shows lack of empathy.

Comments: Staff are urged to act nicer to NAME to keep him at a stable emotional level."

I mean seriously , how do people even think like that ... Sad

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

RE: Atheist = shooter ?!
The OP author lives in Maine. It's an abysmal shame that his public school decided to profile him based on his personal character, when his grades are what should matter, since he has no record of violence or offensive behavior.

It sounds like his school is resourcing the Cornell Psychological Profile of a School Shooter.

I'd think what should concern him, his parents and their attorneys, is that that file entry stands to affect that young mans future when/if he thinks to seek a higher education at University.

Unfortunately, this just goes to further the notion some people have that the Orwellian dystopian novel "1984" is slowly coming to pass. Sad

I guess we are all threats then.

Some theists would agree with that statement.

To quote an amazing band titled 'The Disciple'
"I'm not afraid of loving my enemies, turning the other cheek, blessing those that would curse me, I honestly want peace with you... but when you come against my family, when you come against my country, when you try to destroy my people, theres no way that I could stand by! This time I will not stand by! I am coming and if I come than pain is coming with me!"

Who agrees?

Hey brother christian, with your high and mighty errand, your actions speak so loud, I can't hear a word you're saying.

"This machine kills fascists..."

"Well this machine kills commies!"

Indeed.
In truth, visual bias and profiling go hand in hand and it just so happens to be a real threat when it also goes into Legislation. Undecided

RE: Atheist = shooter ?!
I cant imagine the school treating christian kids the same way despite the fact that alot of the people that have shot up schools Were either christian or raised by christian's. Taste in music has nothing to do with it.
Music, tv and games are blamed by people looking for an excuse for their own bad behaviour and by parents who dont think that their children or their parenting are the problem. You dont hear these people blaming books. The bible for example justifiable genocide,rape,murder,slavery i could go on are all in it. these people should take a look at their own beliefs before profiling someone who doesnt fit to what they think is "normal".

Behold the power of the force!
