THIS anti atheist, anti liberal comment gets 100+ likes?

Comments section at Miami Herald article about a shooting in a school bus:



You read that right: "This is what happens when Liberals and Atheists preach to us to take Religion,Prayer, The Ten Commandments, Christmas, Family Values and Conservatism out of schools and replace them with, Condoms,Abortions, Birth Control Pills,Tatoos and Hollywood Liberalism." got 100+ votes as a response to an innocent comment that got around 20 likes.

I don't exactly imagine the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area as fundie land. But isn't it scary to live in a nation where people think like "sportsfans_13"?

4. My first week training at the blood center was when the VA Tech shooting happened.

I had one of the IT guys tell me exactly the same thing. He's a nice guy and really liked me right from the start. The really cool and much more competent IT guy thinks he's a dumbass.

5. Yeah it has nothing to do with the fact that a 15 year old

brought a gun on a school bus and it went off while he was showing off.

Yeah it's those damn liberal, hollywood, atheist, abortionists who caused this. Not pro gun nuts who like their laws so lax that a 15 year old can get ahold of a hand gun and bring it to school.

Guns don't kill people, unless you happen to be on a school bus when one goes off....

10. I'm 41. I grew up in the south. At 15 many of my friends owned guns.

 

My family owned guns. In fact my dad's parents owned enough to arm a small country and they were as accessible as the turkey on the table. To the best of my recollection nothing like this happened in my community. As far as I can tell this 'fear of guns' thing is a self-fulfilling prophecy much like abstinence only sex education.

11. I have no fear of guns, unless they are in the hands of a 15 year old

who doesn't know anything about gun safety. According to the article the kid was showing off his gun when it "went off". Sorry but if you come from a family who were responsible gun owners then you should know what I said was true. If blame needs to be assigned here "godless liberals" are way lower on the list than people who think any kid should be allowed to walk around with a gun but not the smarts to use it.

6. Logic is an almost entirely unknown quality amongst some big cohorts, TTE, "the shooter

didn't go to church," ergo, everyone who doesn't go to church is a shooter sooner or later.

8. Religious screwballs are all over the place

and being a religious screwball is the one thing in their otherwise pinched, useless lives that makes them feel superior.

Just take it for what it's worth (nothing) and move on.

Otherwise you'll go nuttier than they are.

9. That's because no shootings of any kind ever occurred before religion

and prayer were taken out of the schools.

Yeah, right. Read the book Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It's about her husband's childhood in northern New York State in the 1860's. The big kids at the school always beat up the teachers. Sometimes badly enough that the teachers died.

So okay, that's not a shooting, but school violence has been around, I'm sorry to say, for a very long time, and has nothing to do with prayer or no prayer in school.
