No Jesus didn't weep. Let's shoot Jesus! That's what pastors like this do. Jesus lies on floor with a bullet in his head. Which is really wonderfully great because he's God etc. [Help]

There are days where I get up, read something, and just want to crawl back into bed. It may be 12:50pm, but I just want to do that after reading that last article.

God I hope the relatives and friends of those murdered do not see this. A vain hope, perhaps.

Good freaking grief! Flip side of the kind of crap Pat Robertson says about bad things happening because God is punishing us for LGBT folks, etc.

Doesn't this so-called "pastor" realize the difference between "Dear Lord, let me live my days in anticipation of your calling me to the reward you have prepared" and "Dear Lord, let some loonie shoot me full of holes so I can be with you"?

Oy veh!

I wonder if that pastor were offered the choice, which he'd take? No, I lie. I don't wonder at all.

You can't make this shit up: Responsible Gun Owner.

Can't even draw his gun without fucking shooting somebody by accident. No charges, he keeps his permit, and he plans to keep on carrying. The tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of innocents.

If, at my place of employment, there was a failure of safety protocols such that two people were injured by a dangerous piece of equipment, there would be a root cause / HPI investigation to determine what needs to be changed about procedures and technical measures to reduce the chance of a repeat accident, and probably I would have my certifications to operate the piece of machinery revoked and have to undergo retraining and requalification.

And in a church, no less! Certainly no rejoicing in heaven, I shouldn't imagine.

There's two slightly better ends to this story. First, he could have killed his wife. Second, someone could have shot him after he shot his wife, not uttering the sentence "before I kill you, there's just one thing I want to know." Because no-one can answer it.

Such a pretty little church, too!

At first I laughed at the absurdity and made allowances for the man being 83; but what the heck was the pastor thinking letting him pass the thing around? Who were the people stroking a gun during the service? And lastly, who was the gormless buffoon who hadn't had a chance to handle the gun when the other guys did so he actually asks the old timer to take it back out of his pocket? Could he not wait until the service was over?

Was there any time left for a service at all or was it just show and tell of the things they want for Christmas? Will it become a tradition to pass around their killing instruments during the passing of the peace?


The missus has three bullet holes in her now, two in the abdomen and one in her right forearm. She was sitting down (in her wheelchair) so we can hope the path through her abdomen was, as they say, "a flesh wound," but that bullet in her forearm has to be serious and may cause her to lose some of the use of her right hand.

I wonder if she was in favor of her man carrying his gun wherever he goes so he could protect her.

We're going to hear more and more of the, "It was an accident," excuse as idiots carry guns everywhere. When do people have a right to go to church with an expectation of not being shot and some sort of recourse if they are?

I'm having a Freudian moment just now. Is this how the devil comes? (yes I meant that both ways)

Meanwhile France seems to have had a (second?) small depressed-cop rampage plus an increased number of suicides as they keep their guns off-duty.

Any attempt at what? It could be read as "Welcome. If you try to enter you will be shot."

Obviously the .45 ACP, in a Colt 1911 pistol - designed, of course, by John Moses Browning. It's obviously God's own favorite.
