    After the previous massacre in Las Vegas, when asked if they need to tighten gun control, Trump, notorious for speaking before indulging his 'brain', said "We're not going to talk about that today". Wonder why? It's almost as if self interest was put to the fore.

    I'm sure even Trump is aware of the absurdity of the God myth, not a good political move to acknowledge it though.

    The shootings aren't a gun issue, but a mental health issue according to the great man...

    Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, tweeted that the people need our prayers right now.

    Given that the shooting happened in a church where people were already praying, I'm not sure what good it's going to do.

    He's not so generous when it's a Muslim doing the killing.

    It's not just like it's America where that stance is taken, Caroline Lucas was shut down when talking about climate change and the more extreme weather as a result leading to people losing their homes and lives. Her point was that continuing not to talk about it and letting it happen again shows far more disrespect than talking about it soon after the event.

    Sadly, these shooting incidents in the States are so commonplace that they have ceased to be shocking.

    In America, acknowledging the God myth makes you electable.

    It's seemingly getting worse out there, and there's very few politicians willing to risk their careers to tackle the insanity.

    The "bible Belt in the US has far too much influence, leading to absurd politics and even interference with TV series

    I have a very good friend who leads an exemplary life and donates part of his salary to helping African schoolchildren through their schooling and he also fosters all sorts of children and without financial reward. However, his son, who is studying engineering and only recently rejected the Christianity foisted upon him, is now angry about the fact that he was indoctrinated with religion all his life. The exchanges between them are highly civilised but the bitterness is real. For my part, I think it's unethical for parents to indoctrinate their children regarding deities but the Church of Scientology seems to be very successful in converting adults, albeit with dubious practices.

    from another side of the argument, what harm are they doing ? ? ?

    Plenty of really decent people are religious, they do great jobs with charities ( home and abroad ) that are organised through the name of religion, would they would still do it if they were not part of religion ? ? who knows ? ? ? that must be a massive plus

    It is easy to knock any churchy-joe, but plenty give more than they take out of society, if they take comfort in the knowledge that the big man upstairs will look after them when they die / or they are reincarnated ( delete as applicable ) who are we to judge them

    You don't have to be religious to be a good person , plenty of people do good things without the need to tell people they are a Christian or whatever , religious people do not have a monopoly on morality and acts of kindness

    I give money to homeless and mental health charities , I was brought up a Catholic but realised at the age of 13 it was nonsense

    I was going to confession and whilst the priest behind the grate was babbling on , all I could think of was the girl in year two I fancied and going fishing later that day

    Islam , the Catholic church etc all indoctrinate

    But Scientology is a cult and it amazes me intelligent people are sucked in by its nonsense

    Absolutely!

    And to respond to the "reasoned debate" alluded above, you cannot have a reasoned debate with religious people.
    They've made up their minds, the only people who can change their minds are themselves.
    If you try to point out the absurdity of it all, they just dig their heels in deeper.

    I have given up , if I meet a woman who tells me she is a Christian , as if it's a badge of honour , I know it's a waste of time

    that is not what i said though is it.

    i asked " would they would still do it if they were not part of religion " , of course we would never know, but the amount of charity work done in the name of religion is a fair amount that i see, from the project i am involved with in Zimbabwe to the " christmas shoebox " charity that we filled for the school last week, would these happen without religion ( though i must say the Zimbabwe gig is now completely independent of any religion )

    You might not have said it but I think a lot of religious people think they have a moral superiority over those of us who are not , I think deep down it's a social get together , a fashion parade etc every Sunday for people who deep down are afraid of death

    There may well be an afterlife , who knows but you don't have to be religious to be moral , kind and a good person

    Exactly Sludge - The NRA support both democrat and republican so will always have the ear of the president.
    I wonder if they banned guns whether someone like the person who did this (an ex serviceman) would just do something like ISIS supporters do and make their own bomb instead ?

    Have a look at Drury's Gun Shop of San Antonio (google). It explains the culture and what no politician would go against.
    As for him bring deranged, wasn't the NYC attacker deranged? Are you classed as deranged if youre white?

    He was ex- Air Force. The country has a fixation with 'Our Vets'. I always thought that a bit dumb.

    We'll be here in 6 months, 12 months etc talking of the same thing.

    Iím Catholic but thatís my own reasons and I certainly hope Iím not some sanctimonious arsehole judging others for beliefs or non beliefs.

    Trump has done exactly what his audience wants him to say.
    The offender (as heís white) had mental health issues
    Thoughts and prayers
    No time to discuss gun control
    If another bloke didnít have a gun it would have been worse so thank God we have guns.

    Textbook Trump. What a ****ing arsehole.
