Church shootings in Colorado

Not one, but two church shootings in Colorado on Sunday, including one at Ted Haggard's old church. Now I am no fan of religion, and I think megachurches are a blight on the landscape and lives of Americans. But there is no justification at all for violence like this, no matter who deals it, no matter who the target is. Though I have no prayers to offer, I give my sincerest condolences and best wishes to the families and fellow churchgoers affected by these atrocities. There is probably not a Godless person in this country, at least not one in his/her right mind, who is rejoicing at this, no matter what paranoia some preachers like to spread, and given the senselessness of the murders, no political point to be made here, save one.

One nation, indivisible.
