Things that make you go hmmm

Remember when people were screaming for Marylin Manson and so on to be banned after Columbine because it caused those kids to murder their classmates and then shoot themselves?


Adkisson targeted the church, [Knoxville Police Department Officer Steve] Still wrote in the document obtained by WBIR-TV, Channel 10, "because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country's hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of media outlets."

Adkisson told Still that "he could not get to the leaders of the liberal movement that he would then target those that had voted them in to office."

Adkisson told officers he left the house unlocked for them because "he expected to be killed during the assault."

Inside the house, officers found "Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder" by radio talk show host Michael Savage, "Let Freedom Ring" by talk show host Sean Hannity, and "The O'Reilly Factor," by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly.

I can't help but wonder, given what I've read about the guy who shot up a church in Knoxville, TN, screaming about liberals and gays as he murdered two people, will there be calls to ban whatever radio program(s) that likely riled him up? No, of course not. Don't hold your breath and don't be silly.

For the record, I'm not calling for a ban on anything because that would be wrong all around. All around.

And also for the record, let's hate what's evil. What's REALLY evil, and not what some people on the radio decide for their listeners so they can make a buck.
