(just saw this on Fox News Channel, 10:10 EDT) A woman apparently tried to execute two of her children this morning. She fired a round at one son, who was saved by a Bible in his jacket. Then, she drove to a church(?) where another son was and fired a shotgun at him, killing him. The woman had anti-depressant drugs in her purse when she was caught.

Isn't it strange how these "crazy" things happen a lot when people are on anti-depressants?

Now that's the best use of a Bible I've ever heard of.

It wasn't the antidepressants. She's obviously a religious zealot that, like thousands and thousands of religious zealots before her throughout history, feel it's ok to murder innocent people as long as it's done in the name of God. Don't blame the shrinks - blame the church!!

I demand prohibition of purchase, use, or possession of a bible by violent felons as well as carry permit type restrictions on the ownership and use of a bible by private citizens.

Because she used a GUN to kill ONE person, we will hear more about this than: a) The immigrant who STABBED SEVEN people to death b) The maniac who BEAT FIVE people to death with a hammer c) The mother who DROWNED her FIVE children. Let's see if Rosie and Katie support this mother. raf, they are being sarcastic. However, and this is not a slam at religious persons, there have been some who have claimed that their religion made them kill. This lady may, or may not, be one of them.

I wonder if the state (where the church shooting took place) has any restrictions on civilian use/ownership of body armor. Perhaps charges could be leveled against the child for protecting himself (sarcasm). Just imagine.

Quoted from [url]http://www.cnn.com/2001/US/09/02/florida.shotgun.ap[/url] "Authorities said [Leslie Ann] Wallace shot her son James Wallace at home, then drove to her family's church where she fired her shotgun at 16-year-old Kenneth Wallace as he stood outside." Yup - good church goin' folks. I say they're religious fanatics because they not only attend church, but they're in the habit of carrying around their own bibles, too.

It's interesting that when some creeps try to use some excuse about how society kept them down, and their lack of opportunity forced them into shooting up a liquor store or invading some old lady's home, we don't buy it. We say "personal responsibilty". E.G. don't blame the institutions. We also (rightfully) say it's not the guns that are to blame, it's the individuals that use them. But the moment someone who is considered 'religious' does a crime, or they do it at, before, or after church, or a bible is part of the picture, you hear some of the same people blaming the church, or blaming religion, or in some cases going off on the Bible itself. You don't often hear the perps being villified because they are a Student, or because they are a Worker. But if they can be labeled as "relgious zealot" (often based on nothing more than the commentators own presumptions and bias)), then that 'explains' it all for these folks. Lets not be hypocritical. If you want to blame institutions and objects ('religion', 'churches' and the Bible) in one situation, don't whine when other institutions and objects ('society', 'the man', 'guns', 'that crack I had to smoke because of the pain of being repressed') are offered as excuses.
