Murder At Church Provides Fuel For The Fundies

You'd think that any humane individual would simply express their disgust with the recent murders at a Unitarian Universalist church and their sympathy for those affected and move on. Not those lovely fundamentalists out there who we have all come to know and love.

No instead, after a brief obligatory claim of having sympathy for the victims they launch into their insane, fucked up regurgitated propaganda.

Let's start with the "lovely" Kathryn of Fitchburg, MA. She certainly is a douchebag. Note to her: it's those very same kind of beliefs that led to Jim Adkisson thinking it would be okay to kill some church goers.

Then we have the lovely people over at Free Republic who seem unable to cope with the idea, that they themselves propose, that there are people of all creeds who go insane... conservatives, liberals etc. My favourite quote:

"This guy is no more a true constervative than Timothy McVey was. Conservatives don’t commit acts of terrorism. I won’t believe this until the killer’s actual letter is released. It could be the sheriff is a liberal himself and is saying these things to smear conservatives."

HA! Yes that's right... the Sheriff must be a liberal!!! I bet Mr Adkisson is in fact a homosexual, disabled, female, Muslim hellbent on giving the conservative movement a bad name. Or not.

And then there is Rapture Ready which is very sympathetic and upset for all those affected... because they are members of a cult and going to Hell. Praise Jesus! Christian love and compassion surely has no end!

Now, to be honest, I don't know why anyone would wish to be a Unitarian Universalist. But hey, it's their free choice and it looks like they are an extremely agreeable congregation who were enjoying a children's performance when a terrible, evil man entered their lives. Those affected deserve nothing but our sympathy and our compassion. They do not need to be told they are going to Hell for their beliefs.
