    Shooting happened in the community of Sutherland Springs, Texas, a town of about 1000 people. This shooting will most likely have a huge impact on the people living there. Incredibly sad to see yet another attack on Christians. May they truly rest in peace by the side of the Lord.

    Sadly not. Again, it is incredibly sad that hundreds of people have lost relatives and friends today, we know that the victims are with God now.

    And when thousands of Rohingya Muslims are killed we don't see this sort of continuous breaking news coverage sadly. Really sad to hear of this terrorist attack.

    Are you high? It was front page of the BBC for a week straight. There were threads about it on TSR too.

      Why does being in a place of delusion make it any sadder than, say, a strip club?

      It doesn't make it any sadder but a place of worship is the last place you'd expect to be killed. They are meant to be sacred places of peace and love.

      Because, places of worship are supposed to be safe, holy places where people don't have to worry about the violence of day to day life.

      At least 27 dead. Horrendous stuff.

      I'm sure we'll all move on within a week or two much like Las Vegas right? :rolleyes:

      I’d bet on it being some gun nut rather than a terrorist based on where the attack was

      I agree, it could easily be another Dylann Roof Charleston style race attack.

      Terrible.

      I don't want to turn this into a political debate but they need to accept the fact that guns are the problem. How often do you hear of similar cases in the UK?

      Whoever did it, if the attack was against a religion then it is a terrorist attack and the shooter is a terrorist.

      He was with them. Isn't that the point of church?
