Modern conservatism at work:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — 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.

This is what modern day “conservatism” is about. Guns, their version of God, and hate for Gays. Those three proved a deadly cocktail of violence. Maybe Gordo can comment on this. I know he likes to pick out every little thing and apply it to “progressives”. Maybe he’ll let us know if this is what he and other conservatives are all about. Shooting up churches that teach what Jesus actually taught and not their hate-filled exclusionary version.

The church was Unitarian Universalist, about the only church I’d even consider attending and have. The one in Worthington even has a Zen sitting group on-site. These are the types of institutions that should be celebrated and not shot up by some hopped up unemployed wingnut. I’m surprised his unemployed status didn’t lend him to wail against the free market that apparently fucked him.

Modern day conservatism. Gotta love it!
