People confuse Sikhs and Muslims all the time, so I have a pretty good idea that the shooters thought they were attacking Muslims. I'm going to be absolutely disgusted if this doesn't get the same media frenzy that the Aurora shooting got. I say that fully knowing it won't, but I'm still holding out hope. I'll be interested in what the deal with these shooters are. After all the **** talking by our resident retards, they better hope these guys aren't Christian...

The shooter(s) is(are) insane. Christians don't kill. :lol:

Seriously: Christian or not. This kind of hatred against other religions (and it was a religious killing) is being bred by fear mongering and politicians like Bachman and her followers just fuel the fire.

Police have determined it was a single shooter. They don't know much about him yet, and I'm thinking we probably won't hear much about it either. No one cares if some crazy religion full of brown people gets shot up, as disgusting as that sounds. The only reason I heard about this was because my dad heard about it through some of his Middle Eastern friends. Has this been on the news at all...?

It's actually been all over the news though the details about it are coming out very slow. I'm sure tomorrow we will have plenty more info.

What a load of crap.

I have no respect for christian fanatics, and i still think this is a load of crap (your post).

I am very happy to hear from your post that the only religious segment to worry about are the hate mongering christians, and the only hate mongering politician to worry about is Bachman.

Your posts are always so informational.

I'm pretty sure RELIGIOUS FANATICS of all factions can and will be trouble going forward in this country, and others, funny how just the partisans like to single certain ones out.

This proves how little TV and mainstream news sources I use. I guess it's just going to take a while to filter to my news sources since it's a Sunday. I'm glad it's getting coverage at least...

I don't mean to speak for phins, but if you go to the Religion forum, there is a guy there saying that no Christian would ever do this, and the ones who do are "Cultural Christians", not actual Christians. I'm pretty sure he is just making fun of that toolbag with this post...

Well, if that is the case, my regrets, i do not post or read the religion forum, probably because i have no interest in it, but thats just me.

To be honest, i really dislike religion in general, i do believe in a higher power, but feel religion can, and usually does bring out the worst in all of us.

I believe this comes down to those who probably have such hate issues they go through religious texts and look for the extreme sections to back up their perverse beliefs, and this goes for all religions, they all have their "conquests", not just the crusades.

Sources name alleged gunman in Wisconsin temple shooting


Looks like he was an army veteran and still active duty with a 9-11 tattoo. Possible white supremacist. The gun was a 9mm that was owned legally.

The gunman who killed six people at a Wisconsin Sikh temple was a 40-year-old U.S. Army veteran and authorities said they were investigating possible links to white supremacist groups and his membership in a skinhead rock band.The assailant, who was shot dead by police at the scene on Sunday, was named Wade Michael Page, a former U.S. soldier who served from 1992 to 1998, according to John Edwards, the police chief of Oak Creek, a suburb of Milwaukee and home to the 400-member temple.
Page killed six people and seriously wounded three, including a police officer, at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin as worshippers prepared for religious services.
The victims were five men and one woman, aged between 39 and 84. Members of the Sikh community said the president of the congregation and a priest were among the victims...

U.S. military sources said Page had been discharged from the Army in 1998 for "patterns of misconduct" and had been cited for being drunk on duty.
Page had served in the military for six years but was never posted overseas. He was a psychological operations specialist and missile repairman who was last stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the sources said.
In June 1998 he was disciplined for being drunk on duty and had his rank reduced to specialist from sergeant. He was not eligible to re-enlist.
Page had been a member of the skinhead band End Apathy, based in Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 2010, said Heidi Beirich, director of the intelligence project at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in Montgomery, Alabama.
He also tried to buy goods from the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group, in 2000, she said. The SPLC describes the National Alliance on its website as "perhaps the most dangerous and best organized neo-Nazi formation in America."
WANTED TO 'MOVE FORWARD'
In a 2010 online interview with End Apathy's record label Label56, Page said he had founded the band in 2005 because "I realized ... that if we could figure out how to end people's apathetic ways, it would be the start towards moving forward."
Asked in the interview what kind of topics he wrote about in his lyrics, Page said: "The topics vary from sociological issues, religion, and how the value of human life has been degraded by being submissive to tyranny and hypocrisy that we are subjugated to."
Describing how the events unfolded, Chief Edwards told reporters the first officer on the scene found a victim in the temple parking lot and went to render assistance. The officer was then shot eight or nine times at very close range with a handgun, Edwards said.


Alot to the article so went for the stuff about the criminal. Apparently he ignored the police officers demands to drop his weapon and opened fire on the police car.

It was totally unnecessary and abuse of your power. It was a website that was totally taking racism in jest just like the many other links I posted after your BS PC censorship. I was actually surprised you took it to that level. But now I know what kind of BS you're capable of. I can understand if I posted a KKK or White Power website and was serious about it. But that wasn't the case and you know it. Total overreach and abuse of power. You should run for some type of office.

I am impressed with how peaceful and inclusives Sikhs are. After seeing some interviews, I believe the world would be a lot less effed up if the dominant religion was Sikhism.
