    The US is forever at war and this might just be some of the effects…when you are fighting a perpetual war, your enemy is always your enemy even when they are your next door neighbour

    The gunman is dead, up till now they fail to release who that gunman was. If it was an arab or one who claims to profess Islam one billion muslims would be blamed for this man’s evil. What a retarded bias American Media!

    The suspected gun man is ex-Army. I want to believe that he had some personal issues that must have sent him off.

      @ 101

      He appeared to have had many problems of his own doing. One of it is, when people reject God they will have no peace in their heart, mind and soul. They will never be happy and genuinely so and will be restless. You know what this leads to.
      I read that he was a neo-Nazi who performed in white supremacist bands. He joined the Military in 1992. He was once a psychological operations specialist in the U.S. Army. He was demoted in 1998 for being intoxicated while on duty “and going AWOL.” He was discharged that same year. He was “a frustrated Nazi” who had led a white-power rock band called End Apathy since 2005.
      This is another case of someone who was employed, had a good job, a promising future, career-wise and financially so and who blew it. Some people do not know what it takes to be happy. Later we should hear whatever else his life was like and what caused him to do such a thing.
      Types as him are stupid (in his case, ‘were’). Now he is dead. Consider he went to his eternal judgment by his own actions. Consider also where his soul will end up and for killing these people and injuring others, causing suffering, grief and hardship on victims and their family.
      How stupid can he be? It is obvious he did not appreciate his life. If he is where I feel he may be he will forever regret it where there is no turning back to make amends. This is another reason why types like him will regret it forever and ever. It is still sad, a life wasted, all because of his actions. I wish others, especially the youths would learn from this.
      I cannot say may his soul RIP because this was one who did not live at peace and with God and who committed these atrocious crimes. He also hated those who are not so-called whites. I do not think that his soul will ever be at peace in eternity.
      St. Paul said no murderer will enter God’s Kingdom. Murder also entails hating people from the heart and wishing them harm and dead.
      Our Lord said the First and Second Commandment are the same: “Thou shall love thy God with all thy heart and soul and ‘love one another’ as you love yourself.” It is something that everyone especially those who claim to be Christians should keep in mind and practice. God rewards the good and punishes the wicked.

    You know that gun sales went up after that Colorado murder spree?

    Sometimes Americans seem insane. More guns = more death … easy.

    We need more love in this world. Too much hate and lack of value for human life. My prayers go out to the victims and their families also the family of the suspect. :(

      The same god that happily orders genocide in the bible surely doesn’t care a whit about peace. The god of the bible is not loving, and that is demonstrated by the bible itself. Read it one day–cover to cover.

        @ Freethinker

        We are all free thinkers. God gave us all a free mind and will. In whatever manner we use them will determine where we will end up at the end of time.
        Your views are blasphemous and redundant. Obviously you are an atheist; too bad for you. It is obvious you know nothing about our God and that you misunderstood what you read in the Holy Bible including misinterpreting it.
        God created us and gave us every means to live a happy and peaceful life but some members of humanity made it a world of problems and lack of peace to this day. Do not blame our All-loving and peaceful God. Blame people as yourself. It is said that when we die we will know the extent of how much God loves us, those who God saved and those who will condemn themselves, the latter by their words and action as yourself. At the moment, with our imperfect and limited mind we cannot fathom God’s love for us.
        God has given you an allotted time. Make the most of it, submit to Him, worship Him, do not deny Him and blaspheme Him that on the inevitable day when you are called to your eternal judgment you will not regret it forever. You keep praying that your soul will not be lost forever.
        Does Jesus care? Oh yes, He cares! I know He cares…I know my Saviour cares! Freedom in Jesus Christ! Onward Christian soldiers, matching as to war with the Cross of Jesus…
