Welfare Recipient Kills Two At Church

From those progressive thinkers at the Associated Press:

Police: Man shot churchgoers over liberal views

By DUNCAN MANSFIELD, Associated Press Writer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Knoxville’s police chief says the man accused of a shooting that killed two people at a Tennessee church targeted the congregation because of its liberal social stance.

Chief Sterling Owen IV said Monday that police found a letter in Jim D. Adkisson’s car. Owen said Adkisson was apparently frustrated over being out of work and had a “stated hatred of the liberal movement.”

Adkisson is charged with first-degree murder. Police say a gunman entered the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church during a children’s performance Sunday. No children were hurt.

The church is known for advocating women’s and gay rights and founding an American Civil Liberties Union chapter.

At last the Associated Press has found something to crow about. Still, it’s funny how seldom the political views of other murderers gets mentioned, isn’t it?

Moreover, is Mr. Adkisson really a conservative?

Other reports say he was ticked off about losing his job and having his food stamps cut off. Which would seem to make him a liberal welfare recipient.

He is also reported to have told friends he was confused by the Bible and got angry whenever anyone would talk about Christianity. Which would also seem to make him a liberal.

Lastly, Mr. Adkisson shot people at a church. Which would also seem to indicate progressive tendencies.

Instead, he has one line about hating the liberal movement, so the media calls him a conservative.

So why isn’t the headline: “welfare recipient shoots people at church”?
