6 dead in Christian school shooting

Postby Remember_Me » Mon Apr 02, 2012 4:32 pm

This is not surprising to me. The religious whackjobs are more zany than ever. Expect more of this.

A gunman opened fire at a Christian university in California Monday, killing at least six people and wounding three more, authorities said. Police say they have a suspect in custody.

The shooting erupted around midmorning at Oikos University in Oakland and left six dead, according to City Council President Larry Reid, who said he was told the count by the police chief.

Police believe the shooter acted alone, Reid said. Authorities have not discussed a possible motive.

The suspect was taken into custody in the neighboring city of Alameda, according to law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.

Officer Johnna Watson did not give any other details about the suspect.

Authorities earlier described him as a heavyset Korean man in his 40s wearing khaki clothing.

Speaking of religious whackjobs....
I was OK, because I know God protects me.

Ugh. Apparently 6 of her colleagues weren't properly protected.
Maybe God was on break.

They should have prayed harder. Too late now.

The survivors will now further victimize the dead by thinking they weren't Christian enough to have lived.

And the cycle continues...

Since you are all science-based, I assume you have some data to indicate that being in a religious school is notably more dangerous than a public school, mall, office, apartment building, or street corner.

Yes, I do.

Thanks.

It's neither useful nor entertaining to turn an incident like this into an excuse for bashing "religious whackjobs". How about just sympathizing with the families of the victims and then leaving it at that?

Naw.

Bashing the religious whackjobs seems more beneficial.

Pointing out stupid helps the public identify and then condemn it.
