Church Shooting, Another Terrorists Attack!!!!!!!

Just like School Shootings and one can name a whole range of Tragic incidents that fall under the Exact Description we give of Terrorism, in the Theaters of Iraq and Afghanistan and around the World. Nobody has stopped Terrorists Attacks in this Country, this one for the Hate against what the shooter was led to believe about a Political Ideology he didn't understand, nor even his own!!

Chief: Church gunman says he acted out of 'hatred for the liberal movement'

The church, like many other Unitarian Universalist churches, promotes progressive social work, such as desegregation and fighting for the rights of women and gays. The Knoxville congregation has provided sanctuary for political refugees, fed the homeless and founded a chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, according to its website.

Karen Massey, who lived two houses from Adkisson's home, told the Knoxville News Sentinel of a lengthy conversation she had with Adkisson a couple years ago after she told him her daughter had just graduated from Johnson Bible College. She said she ended up having to explain to him that she was a Christian.

"He almost turned angry," she told the newspaper. "He seemed to get angry at that. He said that everything in the Bible contradicts itself if you read it."

In one of the earlier breaking news articles they said the police found a 'manifesto' in his vehicle at the church. The quote about comes from an earlier report that's linked from the link title above.

Will we start seeing more of these attacks? Have we already but nothing was left and the shooters were killed? Is this a result of the Hate Speech News we get from outlets not giving Real News but opinions of a few who make money for themselves and others, huge amounts? So Many Questions???????????????????

Alot of the Hate Speech comes from the Pulpits of what are still described as Churches and supposedly following a Religion using the name Jesus as their savior.

It isn't a religious ideology I learned about and most certainly doesn't follow the teachings of Jesus givin in the Bible, the same Bible they profess to follow!

Over the years, I've been surprised by the number of people who have never heard of Unitarians. So for those unfamilliar with the religion, here is a link to their website.

The site is loading slowly, so here's the entry at Wikipedia:
Unitarian Universalist Association

It's not clear at the Wikipedia link that Unitarians have been around for hundreds of years.

Alot of folks are looking for a description of their religious beliefs, so much so someone posted a diary over at KOS giving their description with a few links, as you did. Reason the site is probably posting slow.

The diary that came up as the news of the 'manifesto' was being broken really is getting a huge number of replys in only the few hours it's been up.

I know some about the beliefs, as I do other religious ideologies, real religious beliefs not those preached today by a number of those under the protestant umbrella, raised catholic, but don't attend any church, still believe in what I was taught sprinkled with beliefs from a few other ideologies.

Thing about this Incident, if the guy had approached this church looking for Help, they probably would have reached out and givin what was needed, instead he blows a number of people away in front of the children of those attending, creating even more trauma!!

Rather, UU's follow Principles and Purposes.

Number One pretty much covers it all - the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

If anyone has questions, feel free to ask. I'm a life long Unitarian Universalist. (I also attended mass on Saturday nights as my best friend was Catholic and went to summer camp at the Jewish Community Center...!!)
