Why Do Atheists Get Blamed For School Shootings?

It seems like every time there's a school shooting Christians blame it on evolution being taught in schools. They blame the shooters family for not being Christian. Every time there's a school shooting Christians use it as an opportunity to say, "prayer in school would of prevented this." Does this anger you atheists?

    Prayer in school would have made this easier. As you are standing around with your eyes closed and head bowed - you would have never seen it coming!!

    They're just doing all they can to prove that atheist are baby eating jerks - blah, blah, blah! trolls!

    No one should be pretentious enough to wrap this evil up into one package but if 100% of these murderers were Christians, you have to admit the atheist-left would be all over that fact. So since 100% of these murderers just happen to be atheist, can you blame the opposition for pointing that out?

    I have no idea why people exploit tragedies for their own talking points. But the Christians have to stand in line behind the gun control zealots who use every possible mass shooting as a rallying cry for the attempt to repeal the 2nd Ammendment. The one exception to this was the shooting at Appalachian State Law School, but that was only because it was thwarted by two law abiding students who were defending themselves and other with their own personal handguns. That's also why the shooting at Appalachian State went unnoticed.

  • Because Obviously, Those who committed the Shootings were NOT Christians

    On The Day of the Columbine Shootings, Harris wore a white T-shirt with the words "Natural selection" printed in black.

    That Tell you something?

    I find it annoying because it's divisive, discriminatory, untrue and never gets to the real source of the problem. Regardless of whether the shooter(s) did it in retaliation for bullying, over a vendetta, because of mental illness, or some other reason, forcing children to pray and blaming atheists is not going to do anything to fix it.

    Of course it angers me. Any b/s of that kind angers me. Not only is it a blatant falsehood, but it's a falsehood whose SOLE purpose is to spread fear and hate towards people who don't share their religious beliefs. There is NO other reason for making up something like that.

    Strange thing, many atheists in this forum have gone out of their way to blame Christians or try to use this as propaganda against God... What's your point?

    Because when "God" befalls tragedy it's because there was sin. And since Christians are perfect little angels and atheists are hedonistic gorillas, it's obvious who God was trying to punish.

    Angry.. no. Disappointed that they feel the need to place the blame in the wrong area.
