    For me, an attack against a church is an attack against God.

    No, it doesn't make the attack worse when it happens in God's house. As evidenced by the wording of your post, nothing much is held in esteem anymore...not even human life.

    Being that it was reported by the mirror in the UK id say they are throwing everything they can find to distract from "other" stories with political fallout potential.

    i would think just an attack on people would suffice for that

    I think we should make this thread about religion, and the evils thereof, rather than the fact we haven't made it easy enough for more crazy people to get guns. Yeah. That's the ticket.

    Oh wait! You already have.

    Wonder if the cops brought him down or if a CC individual did or if he killed himself. Anybody know yet?

    Just watch how popular this thread is... you people love this news as much as you all like to say you hate it.

    You all will debate the specifics of the perpetrator, you all will want to be the 1st one to judge and jurify the shooter, and you all will glorify it to the point of which only tells the next shooter that is planning to act in these ways, that they will become infamous in a mere few seconds after pulling the trigger.

    Stop glorifying these horrific events... please, it's sickening to see the glorification of it. It might not be as bad as the person who pulled the trigger, but all you twitter jurors are as damn near as uphalling as the crimes themselves are.

    At least 16 people were shot by a gunman who opened fire just before 11.30am The shooting occurred at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs in Texas A witness said among those who were shot in the attack was a two-year-old child Another witness said a man 'in full gear' walked into the church and opened fire Police confirmed that the gunman is dead and there is no longer a threat in area Victims were transported to a local hospital and it's unclear if any are deceased

    Prayers for all.

    This is just so so sad.

    The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


    Seriously, is decorum beyond some of you?

    The humor, or attempts at it, are somewhat misplaced at this point in time. So, too, are the sniping at religion.

    People are, at the least, hurt, possibly dead. Think about that for a moment before commenting.

    My prayers and thoughts go out to the victims as this sort of madness continues.

    As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

    Edited out a reply to what Seagull already took care of.


    Neighbors in the area said they may have heard the shooter reload multiple times. Another witness at the scene said a two-year-old was also shot in the attack. Families tearfully prayed nearby as they wait to see if their family and friends are safe. According to KSAT, there were at least six helicopters called in to transport victims to the hospital.

    This is so sad. Prayers for the victims and their families. Sadly, it is being reported a 2-yr. old child is among the victims.
