    A second victim has died from this morning's shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church.

    Linda Kraeger, 61, died this evening at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, according to City of Knoxville spokesman Randy Kenner.

    She attended Westside Unitarian Universalist Church in Farragut and was visiting the Kingston Pike to watch the children's play.

    A church member, Greg McKendry, 60, was killed when he confronted the gunman as he entered the church.

    Jim D. Adkisson, 58, of Powell has been charged with first-degree in the death of McKendry.

  2. Get ready for a week's worth of cable TV ruminating on the motivation behind some redneck shooting up what they'll likely call an "unconventional" church.

    I'm not sure what's worse for America, guns or religion.

    Judgmental people who are intolerant of others trumps both.
  4. So, religion?

    Wait, it gets better.

    The shooter hates liberals and targeted the Unitarians because of the denomination's liberal social stance., according to the Knoxville police chief.

    But what's odd is that he also seemed to hate Christians ...

    Anybody want to bet on what time Pat Robertson says the people in this church had it coming to them?

    Pat Robertson may have said some dumb things in his life, and he's probably got more dumb things to say in his future, but I think I'll take your bet.

    A lot of people hate liberals. A lot of those people probably own guns. Thankfully 99.99999.... percent of them don't get the idea to do this.
