    Shooting at Oak Creek Sikh Temple Outside of Milwaukee, in Oak Creek, Wisconsin - ABC News



    A mass shooting has occurred at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisc., just outside Milwaukee.

    At least four people have been reported injured in the mass shooting and no suspect has been identified. Hospitals in the area were told to be ready for up to 20 shooting victims, according to police radio reports.

    Some members of the temple are still inside the temple and are hiding, believing that a gunman may still be inside the building, according to ABC News affiliate WISN.

    According to local reports, a gunman walked into the church and opened fire around 10:34 a.m., shortly before a prayer service was scheduled to begin.

    Among those shot was the president of the temple, accoding to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
    So when people freak out and ask "omg why do you need that gun, why would you carry a gun to church of all places"....well folks, this is why.

    And you are. The shooter is a scumbag. You swoop in to gleefully use what he did to launch inane political attacks. Yes...indeed...worse.

What he asks of you is pretty much irrelevant to this discussion because it can't be confirmed one way or another. What I'm saying that god, whether you admit it or not, has asked the important people of your religion to kill on more than one occasion. Once you agree with that you by definition must accept that, at the very least, your deity and by extension your religion, are both violent.

Whether it be through the delusion of grandeur that comes with divine commandment or or the foundational teachings (which you seem to ignore in your apologetics) is irrelevant.
    I thought you were an atheist? You're sounding like god actually does tell these people to kill. Do you really believe that? Or isn't it true that people wanted to kill and "god talking to them" is a convenient excuse? If this were the case, it isn't religion that's violent, it's the nutjob who is violent.

    This is as dumb of a response as claiming more gun laws are needed.

    And knock off the attempts at condescending intimidation for someone who doesn't know YOU. It don't work with me.

    Who has argued about what god has asked you to do? What he asks of you is pretty much irrelevant to this discussion because it can't be confirmed one way or another.

    No. What I accept is that there is and has been violence in my religion... same as there has been in most if not all religions, societies, countries, etc... That does NOT mean they defined AS violent. Big difference.

    Typical. Follow up with a straw man.

    That's ****ed up.

    I'd rather have zero shootings and a thousand blowhards pontificating on past shootings than the opposite.
    I agree......this should be TALKED about. And yes, gun availability should be talked about as well. I don't know the answer, but I am sick of crazy mother****ers buying guns legally and then shooting up crowds.

    It seems we have had an epidemic of social terrorism dating back to at least Columbine yet there has been a national effort at denying the problem because each one gets viewed as "isolated."

    It's very revealing how all Muslims get disparaged by some fake Muslims in one attack but no matter how many white guys go on spree killings they are still the innocent group.
