Probably one of the many Tennessee Muslims out there!

Jokes aside, this is whack and almost as cowardly as shooting up a school.

Idiots.



Six replies in and we already have a drive-by take on bagging on 'dem Muslims.

P.S. - it was a white dude


Not according to the article.

The shooter was a 26-year-old black male from Rutherford County, according to police. The blue SUV he was driving is located next to the church.

You are 100% right.

But that won't stop the crazies.

At this point people like to take the tragedies and find that one little angle that justifies their stupid worldview, and only focus on that.

This is probbsly Trumps fault, after all.

I know my "joke" was not exactly tasteful, actually my point was to say "no way it was a Muslim, so good luck pinning it on them"...

But here we are... so far it was not a white guy or a Muslim and it really doesn't make any difference to me because if that was my town my family would have been in that church ( not me!) ... either way some dick killed people for some stupid belief he has.

Anything else is just politics and BS.

Wow, takes a special kind of evil to shoot up a church on Sunday.

Sad, tragic, horrifying.

Thoughts and prayers for the victims.

Seeing mixed reports regarding the shooter.


Kimberly Davis @NC5_KDavis

Police say the shooter is a 26-year-old black man.

Metro police have not released his name.

Victims, including the gunman are here. @NC5 3:13 PM - Sep 24, 2017

Just because the man is black doesn't mean it is racially motivated.

Can we not fan the flames of anything? The Church was mixed race-as I shared in last post. Motive is unknown.

If they do, it will be the fault of the people in the church and not the fault of the gunmen. So much racial injustice making him act out or something.

Or a retaliation for Dylan Roof, but that's less likely given that Roof is rightly sitting on Death Row.

Since he was wearing a mask, it's possible he could be ANTIFA.

It's kinda tragic in itself when something like this happens people almost immediately make wild assumptions, and begin looking for racial, political or religious motives.

At this point, it's possible he thought the world was going to end and when it didn't, he got mad.

I think that religious sect who believes that only black people are the true chosen people of God (Jews) and that they've been in captivity in Egypt (US) for 400 years is also in Tennessee. They believe that period is ending and that they were/are supposed to be freed from captivity.

There's an outside chance this is related to that too.

If you want to know what I mean look at this list of linked videos on YouTube.

www.youtube.com...

They show up in the commentary on any other religious prophecy video too.

That's because when something "like this" happens it usually IS racially, politically, or religiously motivated.

It's also possible he was molested by a preacher or another church goer or had a problem with someone due to another abuse.

Of course, that doesn't excuse this as no motive does. There's a whole list of things this could be, but no matter what, it's a coward's action. We should know better at this site than to feed any of this BS. Wait, never mind too much to ask, carry on. So, are the bets for a Soros paid for shooting? Why then attack a multi cultural church?

If it's the same dude I'm reading on FBI he says some strange things.

"Every single legend before me was a false alarm.
Every single thought you think you think you thought is wrong.
Crawling through hell with gasoline garments on, army strong, barrel to the devil this is the rebirth of Kong"

Can't link the page at this time.


Dude is wacky.
