    Tch, thing is, you can't tell who's going to go bug-fuck in a church, everyone's talking to imaginary people in there.

    White male could mean a trans-racial black - and possibly a woman.

    If you cannot get shot in a hospital the church is the next best place for a christian. I would assume god would be extra nice considering you got whacked in his house and he is all powerful and probably could have locked the door or jammed the gun or something. I would find it a little annoying to have died while god is drawing pictures of his son on some wacko's morning toast or an IKEA bathroom stall. Where the fuck is Quality control in christian heaven anyway?

    Another senseless tragedy.

    But hey, its just another example of the price (other people) pay for our freedom!

    And it would have been just as horrific if the shooter had used a box cutter or hammer. He would have found a way to kill.

    This one potentially provokes both the gun-control and race relations issues. Rightforge does not like!

    More on the "god doing something about it" issue: god is cooperating fully with the investigation (at this point he is a "deity of interest"). God has released the congregation's prayer requests for the past 24 hours. Here is a copy.

    1. 117 requests for winning lottery ticket numbers
    2. 3,468 requests for various sports teams to win
    3. 42 health related requests and comments

    but NOTHING about stopping crazy people from shooting up the joint. God isn't a mind reader you know! If you don't spell out what you need what can he do about it?

    Yes, but he does not just hear our prayers according to the dogma. You would think someone who is able to master space time and matter could easily have made that gun jam in his house. The would not have even been a miracle. Gun jams happen all the time, so he could have done something. He is watching on his holy day isn't he? If you can hide from him then he would not be a very good god now would he?

    Oh SNAP! It was Wednesday night - a lot of churches have mid-week services/activities on Wednesday - a very busy day for god! Bad enough the Jews & Christians have separate Sabbath days, but Wednesday really takes the cake. God really needs to think about hiring some better help. Those "protective guardian angels" must have a strong union. I think half the time they are pushing babies out of penthouse windows just for job security. I hope the gunfire in the church didn't wake them up last night! :brood:

    I also fear these killings might be racial related.

    Actually, this is NRA recruitment time, just like when we got a black president and when the 26 grade school kids were murdered.

    This shit is big business.

    I'm bashing the killer. Are you saying he's a Christian?
    Even I didn't jump to that conclusion.

    No one is mocking the senseless murder of these 9 people. Dicky did mock religion in general, but most certainly not the murder of such people.

    Oh you fucking know they will be all over this like white on rice. Thankfully all the grabbers wailing and whining will have zero real effect on anything related to guns, so I let them vent. Like a child, they eventually cry themselves to sleep. :zzz:
    More importantly I hope nobody plays the "don't talk to cops" card. That would be extremely disheartening and counter-productive. That said I don't think this killer has anyone on his side, or at least I hope not. I'm guessing when the authorities start closing in on him he offs himself. :brood:
    I hope citizens catch him and skin him like a catfish and leave him for dead. :D

    As one of the comments reads: "The apartheid-era South African and Rhodesian flags really set off the whole ensemble."

    Yep - if you know you're going to have to shoot fast & furious at very close range, hold another magazine in your non-firing hand. Obviously you aren't going to hold five, so yes it is a bit odd. Maybe he took down the largest males first (the biggest threat to stopping him). Regardless, this is one twisted shitstain and I hope he soon endures a long, painful, undignified but well deserved death.

    That would be pretty fucked up. But this fuckwad was smart to do this where he knew nobody would be armed, as his goal was to "kill black people." He spared somebody to "tell what happened." Ummm........I'm thinking the world would figure it out pretty fast, what with all the shooting and the screaming and whatnot. What type of drugs did this guy abuse BTW? Meth or something? Surely nothing that chills you out.
