Interestingly enough, however, the fact that the Atlanta shooter was African-American bears not one comment. It's OK to blame the Wisconsin shooting on religion, since that's the brand of bigotry is the one that's tolerated here. -- schick

The one possible mitigating difference is that the black shooter rarely attributes his deed to his race, while - in many instances - the theist shooter attributes his acts to his God, his "faith & values" or his religious preferences.

Don't get me wrong... there are some very hard-line anti-theist folks on this board, but the prejudice does have some history behind it.

Full disclosure... I know no details of the church shooting in question here.
