Secular Media Caused Colorado Shootings

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council (a Christian Right non-profit “think” tank founded by James Clayton “Jim” Dobson) blames the secular media for home schooled Matthew Murray’s deadly rampage in Colorado. According to Perkins:

“It is hard not to draw a line between the hostility that is being fomented in our culture from some in the secular media toward Christians and evangelicals in particular and the acts of violence that took place in Colorado yesterday.”

    Tony Perkins should try to read a little before demonstrating to the world that he is a dumbass. According to the latest reports, the shooter apparently was booted from the missionary program where he did the first shootings. He was a christian wannabe but the christians didn’t want anything to do with him. I’m sure Jesus would have booted him out, too.

    Spiritual child abuse caused it if you ask me.

    Apparently, the shooter had battled mental illness for years- depression, suicidal feelings, and even hearing voices (!) Perhaps he was a victim of child abuse as well, I don’t know if we’ll ever find out the truth about that. He lashed out at Christians but blaming Christianity for his actions is like blaming the U.S.P.S. when some nut shoots up a post office.
