The Right Wing Reacts to Tennessee UU Church Murders

Here's a quick sampling of some opinions expressed on FreeRepublic.com regarding the murders that took place in Tennessee. You can stop reading when you find something that sounds sane in this.

What the hell is a Unitarian Universalist Church? That sounds like something a handful of warmed-over flatliners dreamed up after hitting the bong once too often. What are its tenets? Its dogma?


...I once read somewhere that

Jeffrey Dahmer is a registered Democrat...


Did you hear the one about the two Unitarian Universalists that were doing mission work? They came up to a door, rang the bell and when the homeowner answered, they asked: 'Hello, may we speak with you a moment? What do we believe about God?'


Well, they have some sole searching to do. What did they do to cause this person feel so aggrieved that he would want to kill them?

This was not so much a crime, as a desperate cry for help.


This guys can't be a conservative.

By picking up a gun, he just became one of them (liberals). Or, maybe, he has been a liberal all along and don't know it.

Isn't this crazy? But, then, isn't liberalism nuts?

He maybe guilty of the action but there have been many cases were people did things only to save their families that were being held hostage.

Everything must be considered before the verdict is read.

Steve Van Doorn

The Unitarian Church is sort of like Obama, no morals, no direction, just a lot of feel good fluff


It was probably a mini-rally for The Obamassiah and they were singing "The sun will come out tomorrow ....". Otherwise, a musical about a poor orphan (Annie) who is befriended by a rich capitalist (Daddy Warbucks), doesn't really fit the UU agenda. Now maybe, if there were a lesbian relationship between Annie and Mommy Warbucks or Annie got pregnant and had to get raise money for an abortion, that would be truly a part of the UU world view.


This nation has long been in need of a good dose of ".44 Law."


...What do you expect? God is NOT in the center of this church. Human beings are.

This is why there was a loaded Glock concealed beneath my sport coat this morning, and every morning I am at church. Oh, and an extra clip in case they're fat or I miss.


To be clear on the matter, there are some Freepers who have expressed sympathy, and a large number who are willing to let God pass judgment on the victims (and on Adkisson, for that matter). The point of this quick-and-dirty list is to simply to provide supporting evidence that there is a sizable and vocal contingent of extremists in our country right now who have more problems with the idea of a non-traditional church and with liberal social ideas than they do with someone who responds to these things with a murderous act.

Some of us are grappling with what happened to the victims. Others are looking for reasons that justify their having become victims. I don't think it will take too long for Adkisson to be portrayed as someone who struck a blow for patriotism by some of this latter set of lunatics who have already fantasized about doing something similar.
