Mass Shootings and the Internets


Another mass shooting. Yeah, in the US. What a surprise.

Watching social media flare up.

“Pray for the families”

“Control the guns”

“People kill People”

“Pray?? How about doing something useful”

“You’re heartless to say things like that”

“OMG people are going about their business, how DARE they”

I know, let’s turn on each other.

Or on the gunman, who I’m sure is only slightly more screwed up than many of us.

He just cracked it

And had access to decent weapons.


take care my pretties xxxx

    I think reacting to the situation is really tough. I just got an email saying ‘I can’t believe you didn’t mention the shooting in today’s blog post’. Truth be told, I scheduled the post last night, I had no idea this was going to happen…

    As someone now living in the US I find the access to guns so scary. People are making insane arguments that if the nutcase that did this didn’t have guns he’d have ‘found another way’ citing the fact that a kid in China stabbed 22 people. Um, yeah, that’s true. But the fact is nobody died in that incident in China. Fucked up people will still try to do the wrong thing…but free access to military grade weapons and ammunition sure as shit helps them maximise the damage.

    Basically, argh. It’s like what are you really meant to say about it? It is too soon to start talking politics and strategies but when the President is on TV weeping about kids being killed for the third time in six months something really has to give, doesn’t it?

    Praying is useful. I pity you as you will never know the strength you get from God. Your opinions are heartless & ignorant. Just because you don’t believe many do. Many have seen what having faith can do. If you have faith God is always with you even when you are down & lonely. I feel sorry for you that when you are down & lonely you are by yourself & will never know the comfort God can bring. If you seen the show on the shooting in Amish country you would have seen how much better they coped with the tragedy & could actually forgive & comfort the parents of the shooter. I think you need serious help if the gun man is only slightly more screwed up than you. I hope you have no children around you as you would be a very bad & negative influence. You need to seek professional help.

    Where is your compassion for the victims and family members of the recent shootings,what’s your solution ? If the entire population of the planet were Athiest would it solve all the problems in society ? I’m not so sure that would work because you wouldn’t be able to rant your anti religion thoughts.Did you accept gifts from your Hillsongy cousins., as you didn’t want them at your 30th birthday,if you did accept gifts from them that would be very shallow and selfcentred or are you just an attention seeker.

    • Fiona says:

      I didn’t ask for any gifts for my 30th, I specifically asked that I wasn’t given any gifts, and I asked for donations for the Steve Waugh Foundation

      “The Steve Waugh Foundation is committed to a coordinated approach to the service, identification, treatment and research of rare diseases to improve the quality of life of children affected by rare diseases (0-25 years of age).”

    If the comments on this post are indicative of some of the religious people in your world, I not surprised you’re atheist.

  5. Sarah Matthews says:

    As you are a supporter of the Waugh Foundation but I have’t read anything by you on childrens rights,you have first hand knowledge of this subject.

What do you think?
