    Police: Man shot churchgoers over liberal views

    By DUNCAN MANSFIELD, Associated Press Writer 55 minutes ago

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Knoxville's police chief says the man accused of a shooting that killed two people at a Tennessee church targeted the congregation because of its liberal social stance.

    Chief Sterling Owen IV said Monday that police found a letter in Jim D. Adkisson's car. Owen said Adkisson was apparently frustrated over being out of work and had a "stated hatred of the liberal movement."

    Adkisson is charged with first-degree murder. Police say a gunman entered the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church during a children's performance Sunday. No children were hurt.

    The church is known for advocating women's and gay rights and founding an American Civil Liberties Union chapter.

    I could agree with a distaste for those liberal views, but.....there is never a good enough reason to shoot people, or even hit them for those beliefs.

    It is a sad day when our nation comes to this kind of thing, all too often.

    Agreed.

    Unitarian Church believes that EVERYTHING is ok and that there is no hell.

    Wow. Poor guy. He was so devastated by the Apostasy of this church. He should have been elated (sortof) !! The Lord cannot come until there is a "great falling away" first.

    That day is coming closer and closer.

    I hope his family can find some peace.
    The flag flies at half-mast out of grief for the death of my beautiful, formerly-free America. May God have mercy on your souls.
