Don't bother holding the piece of s**t on 1 million bail, just take him out back and be done with him. This is one thing the Chinese do properly.

How do you know that jesus didn't send this man over from the correct church to rectify the incorrect church?

If only he had taken out his frustrations on the Westview Wesleyan Church on Joyce Avenue. I'm sure he suffers from Alzheimer's and got confused.

are they happening "more often"? Where's the statistic for this "more often" that you speak of?

Lots of catholics and protestants were shooting the hell out of each other in Ireland for a long time now, maybe since the Norman invasion. Do you think the shooter got the idea from them? Or do you think the shooter got the idea from the Sunni and Shia?

This is a terrible thing. My heart and prayers go out to the congregation, especially the children who witnessed such violence.

Doesn't "What would Jesus Do?" come to mind. He certainly isn't from God. Perhaps your view of the correct church is the one full of heretics?

"Gunman opens fire in Tennessee Unitarian Universalist church, 1 killed"

2 have died now. What is wrong with people? There is a terrible wound in the fabric of this country that needs to be healed so this sort of horrible, despicable thing stops happening. Why are there so many sickos in the world?

I'm a heretic to your faith, and must say that love and morality is not exclusive to any one faith. One need only examine his reasons for doing what he did to see he is a fanatic no different than a foreign terrorist. Killing innocents for his radical beliefs.

There are some cultures that nurture homicidal maniacs. Wrath is their favorite cardinal sin and violence is as attractive as blood in water to a shark. The worst are the two-faced ones who uphold the "Culture of Life"TM but support Capital Punishment--a "gateway drug" to such things like torture. Sadly, some of these supporters claim to be followers (to the letter) of the church's teachings. Shocking!!!

Your conscience wrote:
Could the gunman be described as a terrorist ?
911 was an inside job.Watch 911 Taboo,September Clues and other great truth videos.
I guess it depends on his motive, he shouted something before shooting, the victims described them as hate remarks.

He was trying to carry a message with his actions against a group of people, similar to terrorists.

This man seemed from Scotland to me because of his name.
I wonder will George Bush attack Scotland and bring democracy there too?
