Attack on Unitarian Universalist Church, two dead.

Man Charged in attack at church

Deranged man enters Unitarian Universalist church with shotgun, kills two people:

...An unemployed man accused of opening fire with a shotgun and killing two people at a Unitarian Universalist church apparently targeted the congregation out of hatred for its support of liberal social policies, police said Monday...

Yup, police found a note in the guy's vehicle, mentioning his hatred of progressive values. From the article:

...The Unitarian-Universalist church promotes progressive social work, including advocacy of women and gay rights. The Knoxville congregation also has provided sanctuary for political refugees, fed the homeless and founded a chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, according to its Web site...

I was just reading about this. Can't quite believe it. Or maybe I can, I just don't want to believe it.

Ugh, yeah. We gotta do something Livia, I just don't know what. I was thinking we could take up a collection of the Church on the Sabbat this weekend. Was thinking to wait for the cue as to what's best to do over at WildHunt.

hugz,

If anyone wants to send condolences, you can do so at this special blog set up by the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Cuckoowasp: You have a cool blog, thanx for commenting and your thoughts are appreciated. Turns out the guy hated Xtains, Liberals, and had a collection of Rightwing books. Yikes. I can't help wondering what where else this horrible incident is going to go.

Yvonne: thanx for the link, am elevating your comment to a post.
