    How many times do you think he saw American Sniper?

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/11/us/chapel-hill-shooting/index.html

    3 Muslim students shot to death in apartment near UNC Chapel Hill

    "Hicks is being held on three counts of first-degree murder.

    In one post widely shared online, Hicks, who claimed he is an atheist, allegedly wrote: "When it comes to insults, your religion started this, not me. If your religion kept its big mouth shut, so would I."

    CNN couldn't independently confirm the authenticity of the post or his Facebook page."

    Emotional Immaturity would seem to trump Faith (or lack thereof.)

    The article mentions the shooters religion, Atheism is not a religion. Whether or not that is why he did this remains to be seen but whomever wrote the article should get their facts straight.

    They were young, seemingly innocent people. My Savior, Jesus Christ, would want me to pray for them.

    Religious people are the only ones who considers atheism a religion.

    Stripped down, any religion is just a set of beliefs.

    It doesn't say anything about his religion, it says he wants "your religion to keep its big mouth shut".

    I love how according to facebook he likes the southern poverty law center and Rachel maddow. That sure must upset the media who were licking their lips at him being a racist, gun loving, social-conservative

    Its the Flying Spaghetti Monster paradigm, it is not my burden to disprove someone else's beliefs, just as its not their place to catagorize mine. Someone can believe any damn fool thing that they want, my dissention of it does not then make that my religion.

    Religion is a disease.

    Bet Obama will have no problem labeling this terrorism, unlike ft. Hood nd many other incidents.
