Bryce Williams claimed to be the gunman and said “I filmed the shooting”. It showed him walking slowly along a wooden boardwalk in Virginia to where Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were interviewing a leader of the local chamber of commerce. Williams, 42, whose real name is Vester Lee Flanagan, lowered the camera to show a gun in his other hand. He then stood behind Miss Parker and Mr Ward filming them for several seconds. They seemed unaware of his presence as they continued with the interview. Williams then raised the gun and fired several shots at nearly point blank range. Miss Parker could be seen being hit and running away in an attempt to take cover.
Read the rest of the Telegraph’s report for yourself. The gunman has, since, been seriously injured while attempting to flee pursuit. Evil people are birthed in evil environments. This evil man is the product of a society which is pumping out similar people at an astonishing rate, America is sick. As a consequence, it is birthing evil.
UPDATE: He has expired of his self inflicted wounds. I’ll shed no tears for him. For his victims- truly. Would that these murderous miscreants kill themselves first and then go on their vile rampage.
So what explains the current Christian Right fawning over her the way some silly academic souls fawn over Wikipedia as a pretended reliable resource? Cynthia Tucker attempts an explanation, during which she correctly notes:
In the 1950s, serious Christians kept their distance from Rand. So did mainstream Republicans. The father of the modern conservative movement, William F. Buckley, was contemptuous of her, and the pages of his magazine, National Review, were anything but kind to her views.
But Rand has since been elevated to a central figure in conservatism. Business moguls have embraced her because of her frank worship of wealth. “Money is the barometer of a society’s virtue,” she said. And her contempt for government, with its regulations and taxation, was just what America’s reckless and self-centered class of business executives wanted to hear.
It’s harder to figure out how Rand came to be embraced by conservative Christians, however. Last year, the late Charles Colson made a video denouncing Rand and warning his fellow Republicans against elevating her philosophy. “It’s hard to imagine a world view more antithetical to Christianity,” he said.
That’s correct- the Rand-ian worldview is absolutely unacceptable and inappropriate for a Christian. Face it. It’s either Rand or Christianity. It’s either/ or, certainly not both/ and.
A spirit speaks out of a fool: “If I have done it, then, if it be God’s will, I have not done it—neither I nor you nor my brother nor my brother-in-law. That disgraceful Nobody has done it. He does every wicked deed and yet gets off scot-free, unpunished by any law or authority. So it is in every government, whether it be great or small, with the exception of the government of either Master Hans or the devil, if God wants to give it into their hands.” To my great amazement, they know where to find that rascal Nobody, as Solomon frequently preaches and warns in his Proverbs.
I’m not sure what Luther is on about either, but the fact that he names Scott (with one t- orthography in the 16th century wasn’t fixed) in the context of the devil is proof enough of Scot’s connection to the evil one.
But of course it’s an Anglican, Stephen. It had to be that or a Unitarian.

This guy should be removed from his office today. Not because of his acts but because of his words. Any priest who states that the God of the Bible is wicked and perverse has no business being a priest. Let him join the tribe of angry atheist ex Christians. But kick him out of the Church first.
To allow him to remain in the priesthood is a travesty and an injustice.
What a wicked man! The Church in Wales says it is investigating after a Gwynedd rector burnt some pages from the Bible.

This is so ridiculous that it’s almost humorous. Creflo Dollar urges the congregants of Eddie Long’s church to go back to him and give him money because he only had a “wreck” and a “minor accident”. This is a great example of mixing lies with truth: yes pastors are only humans and yes we are all sinners but when yo … Read More
