I guess they're REAL xtians if they don't get caught......

No real™ Christians only wish someone would shoot up a planned parenthood. Then they claim surprise when one of their own takes them up on it, and denounce his Christian-hood-dom.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Same old America.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Colorado Springs shooter ...
Twitter feeds show people offering "prayers". Obviously, in these circumstances, we are helpless to act and it is a standard way to show solidarity with the effected communities and individuals. It brings comfort to those who believe. Even with this in mind I end up asking the same question every time. Why prayers? In this case it is likely prayers would have been one of the "tools" used by the terrorist to commit these acts. The voice of God encouraging his work. How does any religious adherent reconcile this scenario (that the killer prayed to the same God, those prayers were "heard" and violence was still allowed) with a loving God? If anything this should raise doubt in any considerate believer.

ps “COLORADO SPRINGS — The gunman suspected of storming a Planned Parenthood clinic and killing a police officer and two others used the phrase “no more baby parts’’ to explain his act, according to a law enforcement official, a comment sure to further inflame the heated rhetoric surrounding abortion.”

What makes these idiots any less extremists than the highly hated Islamic State? Being an American? or Christian?

As I said upthread, this is religious terrorism.

It's a goddamned shame they can't pray for their fellow believers to work for nonviolent change if it's change they must have.

Not that I think prayer would work, mind you, but it's much less harmful that a Christian with a gun and an agenda.

I predict that this shooter will be found to be mentally ill is some way, and I wouldn't dispute that. However, mental illness will be what is used to remove Christian motives as the prime reason for his actions.

When it's a religion other than Christianity at the core...it's terrorism. When it's Christianity it becomes mental illness.

How can so much stupid exist in one photo?

It's easy and there is so much precedent.

Q: What is the difference between religious terrorism and mental illness? Consider
