I gather he wasn't overly impressed with the parable about the sparrows.

If you are referring to the story where Jesus went berserk with the money changers by flipping over tables and running all of them out of the temple, I don't recall Jesus pulling out his "semi-automatic, iron-spiked, cat o' nine tails" and attempting to slay everyone within arms reach. Tap dancing Methusela!!!

I said before and I will say it again. Why Do all these crazy bible thumpers have to be where i am from or close to me.

I am surprised they did not try to say he had "evil spirits" in him.

That is quite possible. Jesus could have been packing heat in the temple. Who knows? shocked

Didn't you know it yet? They usually tell the families of the deceased that it's God's will. grin


"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "otherwise you wouldn't have come here."
Alice didn't think that proved it at all: however she went on. "And how do you know that you're mad?"
"To begin with," said the Cat, "a dog's not mad. You grant that?"
"I suppose so," said Alice.
"Well, then, " the Cat went on, "you see a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad."

But I can't wait for tomorrow to inform him the killer was actually another good Christian doing his God's job.


Unitarians absolutely make conservative and fundamentalist Christians foam at the mouth--and sometimes even annoy mainline Christians, too! Therefore, this is clearly a case where Christians need to acknowledge the plank in their own eyes and bug up their own butts before they start picking around for specks in the peepers of Satanists.

I'm actually expecting that at least one fundie somewhere will claim that this was God's vengeance against the "lukewarm."

If you guys are amused by the Christians subduing the gunman in this case, you should read up on what happened at New Life (remember Ted Haggard? That's the church!) when Matthew Murray went beserko. One of the civilians who shot the gunman later expressed regret--not for shooting him, but for screaming obscenities to get his attention.

Oh, and when that man--a Vietnam vet, incidentally--later criticized New Life's security guards for not being faster on the draw, he was escorted out of the church for being too "volatile" and "disruptive." That's gratitude for you.

You're not funny. I don't mean that the news piece is above being made fun of. I mean you, as somebody who is attempting humor, are truly not funny. You are desperately digging at an angle that is simply not there. Stop.

I wonder the same thing, Tier Instinct. IF, by dieing, they go to "heaven" to be with "jesus", why the hell weren't they lined up with boxes of ammo for the guy, so he could shoot more of them?
This brings to mind the guy in the steak-house in Texas a few years ago. Now, that guy had BALLS. I mean, going into a restaurant in TEXAS, with only 2 pistols? he must have been from another state. Everybody in Texas KNOWS that the per capita ownership of firearms is what 4 to 1 (4 guns per person, not 4 persons per gun) in Texas.

All I can say is, I'm glad I live in Michigan. Because we can get our CCW's. Carry Concealed Weapons permit.

I carry, I have for about 8 years.

It's my right, and I've taken a wonderful self defense class.

My dad always carried too.

So do my brothers. It's a family thing.

Since I don't go to church, I'm more vulnerable to car jackings, and restaurant shootings. If I can run I will, but if it comes down to my life or his, my life will win.
