Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue this AM. I'm not Jewish, are thoughts and prayers appropriate?

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

Mocking jokes aimed toward well wishers are always appropriate just hours after a tragedy. You are a refined gentleman Mr. Bond.

Thoughts and prayers don't stop bullets. Well wishes are worth dick. That's kind of the point.

Wow, when did this place become so PC? And I'm mocking lawmakers who send out worthless "thoughts and prayers" in these situations instead of taking action to prevent them.

Thoughts and prayers have the unassailable advantage of costing nothing, which is why they're all you get from most people.

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

It’s truly tragic and upsetting. I heard they caught the guy. Is that true?

Oo7’s comment is just pure point scoring off a tragedy. People are dead and he’s playing a game akin to calling “shotgun” with your buddies. “Oh boy, a tragedy. I’m going to be first over at dvdtalk and score some ‘thoughts and prayers’ firsty points.”

Or maybe he's just pissed about people always offering thoughts and prayers but never doing anything?

Re: Mass Shootings [Merged]

I can understand that it’s frustrating when politicians do it. But everyday people genuinely believe sending their positive energy will help, and they shouldn’t be derided.

Remember, this lame sticker that’s become a mantra to the left includes Christians too.

Absolutely horrible.

And, yes, the shooter surrendered.

I hope the trial and execution is swift. I’d be fine if it was carried out by Sunday.

Tentatively IDed as 46 year-old Robert Bower, white male. Here are allegedly some screenshots from his social media before it was taken down:

Looks like he was upset that Trump wasn't anti-semitic enough.

All of this is info from "some guy" online so it could be all wrong. Did find one Spanish language news site that posted the same name and age, however.

Yeah coexistence between religions is such a lame message.

He has to make up for saying he’ll pass on calling any of the politicians who were sent bombs, after saying he ‘might, if they wanted him to’.

Did you expect anything else from President Bone Spurs? The solution to one gun is another gun in their minds. The Wild West.

He's playing to his base. And that base is big. I keep saying it. This will win for him.

Spoiler:
Every thoughtful, caring Christian that I know understands that thoughts and prayers, without accompanying action, do little. They are also sick of the "thoughts and prayers" responses to every shooting.
