Bibles, Bullets, and Bullshit

What would a week be without another mass shooting in America?  It's the latest in reality TV.  This time a massacre came to rural America and specifically the Bible Belt.  Semi-automatic rifle bullets pelted a small group of worshipers in a Baptist Church killing 26 people including children.  Motive is unclear but one thing is very clear guns were involved.  Probably nothing will happen politically because the NRA is just too strong a lobby.  But what really pissed me off yesterday were the comments made by the pastor of  a neighboring church.  Essentially he felt sympathy for the loved ones left behind but was "happy" to know that those who died were with their "king" in paradise.  As long as that kind of bullshit thinking takes precedence over meaningful gun control legislation the weekly gruesome reality show will continue.
