Who could be mad at Unitarians?
He's lucky we Unitarians are such a peace-loving bunch, or he may have been more than just "tackled and held."
Or maybe not so lucky. I wonder what it's like in prison for people who open fire on children's plays in churches...
Shit. Well, I just hope the victims pull through. I'm glad none of the kids got hit.
Jesus Christ, why would anyone want to kill poor, humble Unitarians? Hell, if have to a christian, at least have the sense to be a Unitarian. Sad as hell

Unitarian Universalism isn't part of Christianity, though it did originate there and it is logically possible to be both Unitarian and Christian. It's a creedless/dogmaless religon that is very liberal. In many ways it is fairly Christian-esque - Sunday morning service, hymns, ministers - but we don't exclusively worship Christ or insist that He's God's one son and the Way to salvation, so we can't by any stretch be called Christians.
My own UU church was vandalized once when we hosted the New Orleans Gay Men's Chorus.
But yeah, anyway (from the Yahoo.news story):
That is interesting, I didn't know that about the Unitarians. I will now find more information about their church, wondering if it's the right fit for my daughter and myself-thanks!
And God Bless Greg McKendry, who sacrificed himself to save others!
apparently it was an attack based on idealogy. I hope the guy sits in jail for a long time.
Police: Man shot churchgoers over liberal views
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Knoxville's police chief says the man accused of a shooting that killed two people at a Tennessee church targeted the congregation because of its liberal social stance.
Chief Sterling Owen IV said Monday that police found a letter in Jim D. Adkisson's car. Owen said Adkisson was apparently frustrated over being out of work and had a "stated hatred of the liberal movement."

In other words, the liberals brought it upon themselves!
Isn't that what they say when terrorists target innocents elsewhere?
