I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the tragedy at a Universalist Unitarian church in Knoxville yesterday. The first paragraph from Knoxville News -Sentinel says it all:
Police found right-wing political books, brass knuckles, empty shotgun shell boxes and a handgun in the Powell home of a man who said he attacked a church in order to kill liberals “who are ruining the country,” court records show.
Go read my good friend RJ Eskow on the tragedy: Monster: Who Really Killed the Knoxville Unitarians? and then light a candle or say a prayer for the families whose loved ones have been taken by a heinous act of hatred. There’s more discussion at Firedoglake, Street Prophets, skippy the bush kangaroo, Orcinus, Hullabaloo, ECHIDNE OF THE SNAKES, Shakesville, News Hounds, Pam’s House Blend, and The Mahablog.
