Well another case of homophobia and violence happened today at a Unitarian Church in Tennessee.

While the little kids group, THE LITTLE KIDS, were performing a play on stage, an armed man came in and shot down, hold on im about to gah, anyways, he freaking shot down 7 people, 1 has been confirmed dead.

Do you guys want to know why? Why I'm crying, what is wrong with this world?

They had just put up a sign that said "We accept everyone, including gays and lesbians" a stupid ****ing sign. Some guy shot 7 people and killed one of them over a stupid ****ing sign.

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS WORLD?

I didn't learn of this until today at youth group, my friend went to suzzie (i think thats how u spell it) and her best friend from suzzie went to this church, she was crying so bad, bawling.



some links to that article (also I think they might be having a press conference about it on TV or something I dunno)

I saw the shocking article earlier today, but it didn't give the reason on that particular report. Fortunately, none of the children were hit. Such acts are completely senseless, however becoming increasingly commonplace as people's attitudes and actions deteriorate. If you don't agree with something - fine, but there's a right and wrong way to voice your disapproval. Sadly, this can be a very sick world indeed.:frown:

This can serve as a warning to all who want to reveal themselves in public. The United States is one of the most violent nations in the civilized world, and very intolerant. Living in the South, I am very careful about what I say and do.

I too heard this on the news today, and was saddened and outraged! We must not fall into the complacency of thinking that all people will at least tolerate us. There are those who are pure evil. Even so, who would go into a church where there is a children's play happening, and start firing a gun? I understand that the adults shot were diving in front of the children, trying to protect them from the gunman. If so, it sounds like the gunman was aiming at the children. Evil enjoys hurting the innocent.

Today's society saddens me. Times like these make me wonder if acceptance is even possible today.

dogboy, this is what I believe happened.

The man came in and sat down with a guitar case.

While the play was going on he got out his shotgun from the case and went to the front and started shooting at people, the first man to be shot, and also the one who died, stood up and jumped in front of the man to block the shot.

What really scares me is that, it couldve been my church.

It's a real shame that these things happen, but nothing really surprises me anymore.

I'm shocked to hear that. I believe there's too much violence in the world, if only it can be changed. Why do other people judge other people? I mean we're all made differently and we cannot change what we do. We are who we are and that's all we got.

After seeing the violence in the movie Dangerous Minds (1995) I thought the violence was bad, but now in real life it's everywhere.

This is a very sad incident indeed. It is often to hard for people to understand just why a person does something like this. It makes no sense to us. I know and understand that at times people feel helpless and frustrated at their situations in life, but nothing can ever be so bad that you should resort to something like this. At times I think that the world would be so much better off if these people would just take their own lives, but then that isn't the answer either. There is help available and people willing to work to solve the problems these people have which makes such an incident even more unnecessary.

Samaki, I would have to say that based on the articles and the news reports I have seen on the incident I believe you have jumped the gun saying that this was motivated as a result of any gay or lesbian issues.

Actually no, that was possibly one of the motivators, that came from some of the heads of our church, and from my friend.

Saying that the guy did it since they had a sign up saying we accept everyone is just as bad as Jack Thompson blaming every school shooting on first person shooter video games and Grand Theft Auto. At least if you have no idea what the motives where at all.

Well a reason why this is a major motive is becuse they had just put the sign up like that Friday, that's why they think it was because of that.

Oh, not another shooting. What ever happened to this so-called "American Dream"?

Why couldn't it have been at Westboro Baptist Church? That would have possibly done some good for the world! Though with all joking aside, it would be even better if this shooting hadn't happened at all. I don't know what's wrong with people. I guess they just suck... that's the most simple answer I can come up with. :(

I'm starting to calm down over the whole thing, I just felt really bad for my friend, you have know idea how bad she was crying.

Before she even started talking she started crying, and throughout the whole concern she wouldn't stop crying. Although apparently her mom learned that her friend was not on the list of injured, so I think she's feeling a little better, everyone from youth group is very sad about this whole thing, but she was def affected the most, since she actually knew someone who went to the church.

I know that I said the main motive right now is the gay marriage sign. Well they haven't proven it and the guy hasn't started talking, but that's def one of the top motives they think. They had only put up that sign a few days before that, so either it was just a coincidence that he attacked right after they put up the sign, or it really was his motive, which I hope it's not because that's a REALLY big case of homophobia.

My love and prayers go out to everyone at that church, I hope that no one else dies.

I plan on going to church this Sunday for service because I'm sure they will have a lot about this incident, but after that I think I'm only going to go to Youth Group.

I'm really scared, either way if this was a case of homophobia or just a case of hatred to Unitarians, then it could travel around to other Unitarian churches, everyone of them accepts gays and lesbians.

Todd and Fire2Box, why argue and try to flame a guy that actually got facts from a person that was there?
welcome to america: we hate fags and non-whites
and why it hasn't happen to the phelps cult, simple, because deep down they are the spoken thought of the deep rooted south. no one will speak against them because below the mason-dixson line most people love their message.
