It seems that primitive knuckle-dragging terrorists prefer to assault the gentle people in places of worship, whether they be mosques, synagogues, or Christian churches. Can it be that certain medieval forms of execution be reinstated for the perpetrators? Might be a deterrence . . .

Too bad a few worshipers weren't packing . . .

I don't believe so Cassowary. All details have not yet been released but It looks like it was perpetrated by Muslim hating white supremist types.

By the way, the death toll has already risen to 49.

The loss of life is very bad. I hope Muslims reflect on why this happened to them and not Buddhist Hindu Temples and Christian Churches.

Muslim extremists have been targeting Churches and Temples for a Long time. For every Attack on a mosque by non Muslims there must have been a hundred Temples or churches attached by Muslim extremists.

Violence begets violence.

It makes (some) Christians look as bad as (some) Muslims. But what else is new?...

Who suggested that the gunman responsible was a committed Christian?

My info at present is that he is a nobody who wanted to be a hero.

By the way, the news is already published in Asia Times:

https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/03/artic ... w-zealand/

Two successive articles on such a remote country demonstrates the truth in the old adage that bad news sells papers.

Right wing, white supremacist, an arsenal of guns and explosives (in severely gun controlled countries), an Australian in New Zealand, attacking Muslims...

This will make for an interesting narrative.


so tragic, but what will happen next will be the travesty...

Yes, and to kick off the travesty, CNN is telling us it's all Trump's fault . . .

That’s right Neverfail. Those that follow Christ’s example will not be a terror pet. That that follow Mohammed’s example will.
