NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) -- A man has been convicted of voluntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment in the shooting death of a fellow churchgoer during Sunday services in a suburban Philadelphia church.

A jury convicted 46-year-old Mark Storms of Lansdale hours after beginning deliberations on Thursday in the April death of Robert Braxton III in North Wales.

Investigators say the 27-year-old Braxton became disruptive and that Storms ordered him to leave, showing him a concealed weapons permit and a handgun. They say Braxton punched Storms and was then shot twice.

About 300 congregants attended the service that day.

...it is not the job of us atheists to try to cover it up.

You seem to remain confused on things that go in the Gungeon, rather than the Religion folder.


As atheists we need to support religious folks in their time of need, as they mourn those lost to gundamentalism.

We cannot deny them their grief, if we allow and even encourage gundamentalists to terrorize them with such free access to guns.







Gundamentalists need to stop forcing their religion down our throats.

They need to learn to take "no" for an answer.
