  1. I don’t understand why you guys are so hypocritical. Why not called the guy Christian terrorist?. His profile shows he was veteran who also taught Christianity at a church. Imagine if he was Muslim.

    • @AMANDA, THE STUBBORN WAY YOU STICK to what you believe is highly commendable. It can only be faulted if there exists a fault in that belief. As such, I would like you to consider this:

      THERE IS a difference between one man who commits atrocious crimes because he believes it is what his religions teaches, and another who commits same crimes for other wanton reasons. Motive is the keyword here. Hardly can you hear that a Christian killed people while calling on Jesus or thinking that he would get a mansion in heaven for doing so. But moslems slaying their fellowmen as instructed by their doctrinal persuasions is commonplace. The Middle East is a volatile region. Nigeria has got her own share of it; and thanks to the followers of Mohammed. The whole world today stands in the dread of any man who wears beards like that prophet.

      THERE’S NO NEED ARGUING things when the answer is clear. You are a mature lady, and as such you should be able to do your own objective and critical examination of things. A Christian who kills in the belief that heaven supports so is a deviant, for true Christianity looks to Jesus, the Author of peace and Lover of concord. Same cannot be said of Moslems. Rather, a Moslem who maintains peace is the deviant moslem, for your prophet drew blood like a hubby. If I’m wrong, just answer me this question: Between Jesus and Mohammed, who “was” gentler and humbler?

      • illogical excuses as usual. How is shouting “Allahu Akbar” difficult for anyone to say including non-muslims?. If non-muslims could dress as muslims like those who dress in hijab or muslim men attire, either comedy or action movies, why is shouting Allahu Akbar difficult for non-muslims to carry out barbaric act?.

        The problem we have is you christian running away from any christians who killed people, and then you come up with trash like “he did not kill for Jesus”. Does the motive matters to the victims?. Absolutely not.

        All the atrocities committed in the open by christians, including centuries old slavery, you want to exonerate christianity?. You are fantastic. You simply do not want to admit guilty. So why do you want to paint all muslims RED over one man’s boolshit?

        Your christian brothers in Niger Delta are christians too killing for stupid things. Is this the first christian killing people in mass shooting?. Did you at one point in time ever admitted violent christians killed for Jesus and christianity either govt or individual?. Stop dogmatism crap and take responsibility of you brother bullshit.

          Amanda, hear it again and again. Motive is the keyword here. Don’t let passion dominate your reasoning.

          No one has the right to make another’s life.

          Muslims, out of hatred kill non-muslims in the name of Islam, like their founder did. To sustain the barbaric act,
          they institutionalize (and fund) killing into several terrorist groups: isis, al Qaeda, hezbolla, Taliban,al shab. hence, the several terrors around the world today are not happening because of Jesus but because of Islamic extremism.

          No one has the right to kill, but when a person kills, such as the man who shot at the crowd in Las Vegas, or this latest occurrence, it is irrational to identify such act with Christianity.

          Amanda, from your expression above, I can read your non-verbal hatred toward non-muslims. This is the root of terrorism.

          No one denies the religious atrocities in human history, but you cannot compare slavery and Niger Delta militancy with contemporary Islamic terrorism. This is a banana-telephone argument.

  2. Amanda, they are f**ls, his name was Devin Patrick, a retired air force who had served in Mexico flank of American fleet. Had it being his name sounded Arab or Muslim, Terrorist would have been used as the word. Meanwhile, what is now the usefulness of the immigration laws enacted by America’s foolish President who banned Muslim nations from entering their foolish and deceitful nation?.

    • What pisses me off the most is, these christian clowns always think that, by default, any muslim who kill people must have his ideology rooted in islam. what fuckery is that!.

  3. Hmmm, you can call this a lunatic when the attack was not linked to a Muslim. In case it does so, terrorism would be a better word to describe it. foolish people of America and the west.

  4. Even inside place of worship one still has to look over the shoulder !
    May God help us.
    RIP to the dead.

  5. The person comitted an act of terror, thereby making him a terrorist. The difference is that he did not commit it in the name of Jesus but acted alone, so there is nothing like Christian terrorist unlike those who claim they do it for Islam and start shouting allahu akbar when killing people. It’s not a debate but just the fact.
