    Will Father Jacques Hamel be declared a martyr, killed solely because of his Christian faith, or will Pope Francis think that too political?

    Still minor coverage of the atrocity in the media. I guess because it was a Catholic priest it doesn’t matter. But lots of coverage about some muslim nutcase who died in Ottawa after a supposed beating by islamophobic police. And of course lots of worshipful coverage of the Clinton coronation.

    CNN could have warned me. With all these loan wolf attacks by people with serious mental illnesses, it would just take enough time before two loan wolfs coincidentally picked the same location. It’s just like the occasional story about the lottery winning family that wins another prize a year down the road.
    Maybe to stop the anger of these people with psychiatric problems we should be trying to prove we don’t discriminate against them by specifically finding as many people with severe mental illnesses as possible to invite to immigrate here and offer them free medical care and housing beyond anything we offer to citizens of our country? That should end their anger and bring peace!
