    I'm aware of that, which is why I wondered if it will be a trend. Still, we're kind of awesome that after nearly a decade and a half of demonizing Islam it's not a trend already.

    In a perverse way, that does make a lot more sense. I did think it was iffy that fox was so quick to clarify he was an atheist but didn't want to say anything quite yet.

    Well we know FOX News doesnt like atheists either so they might have set up the initial headline as something along the lines of atheists versus Muslims.

    Islam isnt a very nice "religion" even without the jihad.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I figured something like this only because of the comments that they were using against the guy, such as what he posted. None of those seemed to truly indicate a hatred of people who were religious in a way that would lead to him hunting them down to kill them specifically.

    Now, it is obvious that this guy has huge anger issues given the level of violence demonstrated over a parking issue. So far though, there is no evidence to me that this was due to their being Muslim or his being atheist.

    Rather than pondering this guys sectarian tendencies perhaps it would be more pertinent to debate why someone with these 'huge anger issues' was ever allowed access to a firearm in the first place.

Because this messes the terror narrative that terrorists are from 'Radical Islam' and Muslims are at war with Christian America...

    Muslims Lives Matter!

    American media has caused this tragedy. It was only a matter of time.

    I wonder if this Hick guy watched American Sniper.
    No they don't and Muslims prove that every day by killing them.

    Might be beneficial to actually know the whole story before declarations are made. For example...
    "Police said in a statement Wednesday morning that a dispute about parking in the neighborhood of rented condominiums may have led to the incident.

    “Our preliminary investigation indicates that the crime was motivated by an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking. Hicks is cooperating with investigators,” Lt. Joshua Mecimore, a police spokesman, said."

    So...we'll see. Maybe it was a fundamentalist extremist that killed in the name of God. Or...maybe it was an ignorant asshole that did something heinous. Lord knows we have more than a few of those incidents going on.

    Not too hard to figure out. We simply don't know from just looking at someone or simple, short term interactions whether a person has such issues. Some people are very good at hiding them. Others it is mostly internal anger until it explodes in a violent outburst. People aren't cookie cuttered, even those with mental health issues.
