THANK YOU, JESUS! One dead and five injured in the latest Southern California mass shooting...inside a church! Where was "Our Lord, Jesus Christ" while all this was going down?

I work in a hospital and it is located in a pretty sketchy area which is filled with drug dealers and whatnot. It s all fun and dandy to have your religion, Jesus, Muhammed and whatever but when you see the damages of a fire arm caused on a human body which is also inflicted by another human being... all that stuff goes out to window and you face reality. I saw people after a horrific car accidents, I saw people after stabbings and all of these are caused by the people who I am sure also consider themselves religious. If there is a God and prophets, just leave them alone and let them take care of the heaven or whatever for you above the clouds. Here on earth please try to be nice to each other or at least own it up and stop justifying all this shit with religion.

Religious people will always say that “god” made a plan for everyone called “the devine plan”. This is all his plan, good job “god”. Why pray and ask for a different outcome when this plan has already been put in place? Praying is a complete waste of time.

I've said it before, this is why we subscribe! To hear the full truth from someone who is as pissed off as we are. I'm so tired of religious people trying to shove this stuff down our throats. Especially christian beliefs about life beginning at conception.

What bullshit. Religious people think they can get away with any kind of behavior, from just being a dick to homicide, and they will be forgiven. If you need the threat of eternal punishment to be a good person, you are not a good person.

Like MLK said about the moderate White being the real problem, it is also the moderate Christian, still giving money to the church, listening to, and regurgitating the bullshit--the so-called "real" Christians-- who are the majority and have the power to end this.

Update: May 24, 2022

On December 14, 2012, a 20 yr old murders his mother, then travels to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut assassinates 20 first graders and six school employees before turning the firearm on himself.

Almost ten years later an 18 yr old shoots his grandmother then travels to Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. He successfully slaughters 18 students & 3 adults today. (update 4:17pm HST)

In the 10 years since Sandy Hook, the schools have made tremendous strides in mental health of youngsters. Resiliency, kindness & tolerance is taught to kids to help enlighten them. One of the moms, of the Sandy Hook massacre, Scarlett Lewis whose 6 yr old son was one of the 20 gunned down has spent the last decade pushing for social & emotional learning support for disenfranchised youngsters.
For Scarlett Lewis it still can be difficult at time, even 10 years after the tragedy.

“I also have had to forgive Adam Lanza’s mother who unwittingly armed him and defied medical advice that he should not be isolated. There’s a lot of anger for her in the community but I can identify with her because we were both single mums. She paid for her mistakes. He shot her dead before heading for the school.”

Whatever initiatives schools have instituted, seems to not have been enough. At the same time, can public education cure all the social ills of society?

On the other side of the ledger, during the past decade, the effort to control the proliferation of guns has been for naught. All the politicians have voiced concern, but no real legislation has not been enacted despite other executions of innocent kids & educational staff.

The last twist to this gruesome news is that this week the NRA will be holding their annual meeting in Houston – less than 300 miles from Uvalde, the site of today’s mass murder. Invited guest speakers will be the Texas governor, both Texas congressional senators & the former president this weekend.
