    As far as FOX they are trying to cover their ass.
    What is Fox trying to cover? They repeated what most outlets said starting Tuesday night, that this may possibly be a hate crime.

    Soviet Union is tricky in that regard. Keep in mind they did still recognize religious institutions like the Catholic Church (remember that John Paul II was in Communist Poland), and of course the Russian Orthodox church. It is true in their earlier days they went after Christians though. However, after Stalin's death, I don't find them as the bastion of Atheism that many believe they were.

    Soviet Union is hardly alone. China, North Korea, Cambodia... Christianity is still a capital crime in North Korea. Athiesm is no less violent than the worlds' religions, and if anything, has the highest body counts.

    I suppose so, I just never think of them in those ways. Focusing more on the political aspects instead of the religious one I suppose. But touche I suppose.

    Yeah, he sounds like hannity's BFF!

    Well, there is this real belief (contradicted by most of the evidence) on the left that it is the right that is angry and violent. You know, that's why the Occupy Protestors left public spaces cleaner than they found them, while the Tea Partier movement featured riots and rapes.


    Myself, I think it's projection. So much of the leftist self-identification is built on self-congratulation, the notion that We Are The Good Guys And So Therefore They Are The Bad Guys, that, on a certain level, they can't help it. The Oklahoma City Bombing is Rush Limbaugh's fault. Cathy Gifford was shot by Sarah Palin. Evidence is immaterial compared to the Greater Truth.

    Moderator's Warning:
    North Carolina man charged in shooting death of 3 Muslim students [W:43, 109]Stopping this before it gets ramped up. If you want to discuss athiesm and it's role in past regimes take it to another thread. Not directly pertinent to discussing this news story. Ditto for musings about "leftist self-identification" or occupy/tea party. Narrow topic, focus on it.

    Over a parking spot? Really?! I hope he never gets out of prison.

    Were 3 slain for their religion or their parking space?

    Imad Ahmad, who lived in the condo where his friends were killed until Barakat and Mohammed were married in December, said Hicks complained about once a month that the two men were parking in a visitor's space as well as their assigned spot.

    "He would come over to the door. Knock on the door and then have a gun on his hip saying 'you guys need to not park here,'" said Ahmad, a graduate student in chemistry at UNC-Chapel Hill. "He did it again after they got married."

    Both Hicks and his neighbors complained to the property managers, who apparently didn't intervene. "They told us to call the police if the guy came and harassed us again," Ahmad said.

    "This man was frustrated day in and day out about not being able to park where he wanted to," said Karen Hicks' attorney, Robert Maitland.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
