    lol@ fishon.

    so...did somebody really get killed by a chunk of meteor/space junk?

    you KNOW your number is up when you get taken out by a meteor (which will now probably be my fate since I joked about it...)

    We really are not safe anywhere, anymore.

    You were never really safe anywhere, ever. Think about it for a minute. There are so many ways to be injured and die. In the last year people have died by, earthquakes, floods, lightning, heat, cold, epidemics, infections, cancers, birth disorders, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cars, boats, planes, comets, chunks of meteors/space junk, guns, knives, clubs, machetes, spears, arrows, rocks and on and on.... If you are alive and uninjured consider yourself one of the lucky ones.

    "What's next, pistol packing preachers? johnstonredneck"

    yeppers. we're there already: "Gun-loving pastor: piece be with you."


    Not surprising since gun worship seems to have replaced god worship among many american conservatives.

    the NRA is basically a religion.

    We should all pray that believe in praying. God/Jesus will hear.

    What's next, pistol packing preachers?

    Under that robe, they may already have a loaded gun. So sad, indeed.

    Lemme try this again. It's pretty bad when you can't even feel safe in Church anymore. What's next, pistol packing preachers?

  • wildcat Aug 30, 2010

    The person (s) doing the shooting should have been in the church themselves. This shows what and how their parents taught them. So sad.
