Note: Please notice the line I have marked in bold below. Why on earth would someone believe this shooting was as skit? I mean, is this typical? Does this church routinely hold violent skits during service? What kind of church is this that the first thing that would come to someone's mind during a violent shooting is that it was a skit?
Does this reflect a culture that has spent too much time in front of the TV, and can no longer quickly distinguish between reality and fiction? Or are xtians just that stupid?
It will be curiouis to learn what this shooting was about. I'm placing my money on a sex scandal. The pastor was probably screwing this guy's wife -- or perhaps his daughter. We shall see.
Gunman stuns US churchgoers, kills pastor
CHICAGO, (AFP) – A gunman stunned parishioners at a midwestern US church when he strolled into a service and opened fire, spraying the pastor's Bible with bullets before shooting him dead at point-blank range.
The shooter, who has not been identified, walked down the center aisle of First Baptist Church in Maryville, Illinois at about 8:15 am (1315 GMT), exchanged a few words with head pastor Fred Winters and then fired four shots with a .45 caliber handgun, officials said.
The first shot hit the pastor's bible and "exploded the top of the bible into what many in the congregation thought was confetti," said Larry Trent, director of the Illinois state police.
"In fact, some thought it was some type of skit or some type of program at the time, which is really not uncommon in these types of shootings."
