I’m not sure what to say about the mass murder at the Batman screening. Until we know what motivated the gunman, it’s unwise to draw firm conclusions. Depressingly, people will take up their customary positions. Once we have more solid information, I’ll have more to say. However, I welcome your observations and commentary in the comments thread.
UPDATE: Good grief:
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Friday that the shootings that took place in an Aurora, Colo. movie theater hours earlier were a result of “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs” and questioned why nobody else in the theater had a gun to take down the shooter.
During a radio interview on The Heritage Foundation’s “Istook Live!” show, Gohmert was asked why he believes such senseless acts of violence take place. Gohmert responded by talking about the weakening of Christian values in the country.
“You know what really gets me, as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and then some senseless crazy act of a derelict takes place,” Gohmert said.
Shut up, man. Just shut up. The blood of victims can’t even dry before everyone takes up their culture-war positions, and starts shooting off their mouths. I’m sure loudmouths on the left are doing it too.
