Jobless atheist losers are dangerous

The Knoxville killer:
If the suspect’s own resume is accurate, Owen said, Adkisson worked in a variety of places across the country and most recently worked in Knoxville in 2006. The chief did not specify where Adkisson last held a job.
I only mention this criminal scumbag because a liberal blogger has accused the "right-wing blogosphere" of ignoring this alleged example of "domestic terrorism." The aforesaid liberal blogger ignores the fact that the aforesaid criminal scumbag was apparently an atheist:
Neighbor Karen Massey says, "I was telling him about my daughter graduating from Bible college and I was a Christian and stuff...and he just automatically turned angry." . . .
"I'm really shocked but at the same time knowing now what has happened he and I did have some pretty extensive discussions, biblical discussions."
Those discussions led her to believe Adkisson didn't believe in the bible's teachings.
"He apparently had a problem with what the Bible said and the contradicting. He felt was contradictions which I don't personally believe, because I am a Christian."
Obviously this loser had some problems with that part about "Thou shalt not kill." So, yes indeed you are right, Mr. Liberal Blogger. I ignored this story . . . because I didn't want to be accused of fostering hatred against atheist losers. Not all of them are mass murderers. Yet.

UPDATE: Others ignoring the story in the "right-wing blogosphere" include Confederate Yankee and Michelle Malkin.

UPDATE II: New details emerge:
Inside the house, officers found "Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder" by radio talk show host Michael Savage, "Let Freedom Ring" by talk show host Sean Hannity, and "The O'Reilly Factor," by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly. Sources say investigators also found a copy of the Knoxville Yellow Pages, a Chilton's repair manual for 1983 Ford pickup trucks and two recent issues of Swank magazine, although detectives are unsure how these items relate to the crime.
OK, I made up that last sentence. Excuse me if I missed the show last week where Hannity told his listeners to go kill UUs. Generally speaking, mass murders cause liberals to call for banning something. I guess now they'll try to ban AM radios. Or 12-gauge shotguns:
Adkisson . . . was subdued by several church members after firing three rounds from a 12-gauge shotgun into the congregation. . . .
"We heard the first shot," said Marty Murphy, 66, a church member since 2000. "It sounded like a bomb went off."
Back when the so-called "assault weapons" ban was being debated, I kept making the point that, in terms of close-range lethality, nothing beats a 12-gauge shotgun. In a home-defense situation, the mere sound of a round being chambered in a pump-action shotgun will send any halfway clever intruder running for his life. This was ignored in all the idiotic hysteria over semi-automatic rifles, but Adkisson's crime highlights the fact that nothing matches a 12-gauge in killing power: Three shots, two dead, seven wounded.


  1. Even atheists have a god, which is typically themself, if they're honest and you ask enough questions.
    God rest the souls taken.

  2. So, "not Christian" now equals "atheist", huh?

    Golly, I'll bet all those Jews, Hindus, and Muslims will sure be surprised!

    You are aware, of course, that there are other religions beside Christianity. Aren't you?

    Here's a tip for you, Mr. Award-winning columnist, reporter, editor, author, bon vivant and raconteur:

    "Atheist" describes a person in which god belief is absent. It is entirely possible that a person could "not believe the bible" and still believe in a god.

    I *know*! That's just crazy, isn't it!?

    Look, until this nutball describes himself as an atheist, I will assume that he's just another dangerously insane god-believer.

    But, you know, don't let that stop you from using him as a weapon in your patently transparent bigotry against atheists.


  3. You left out one inconvenient fact: UU is not a Christian "church," and many if not most members are atheists. So I doubt religious (non-)belief was a motivation for the shooter to target that particular group.
