I've heard about this one... I'm not falling for the Nigerean church scam.

Teabaggers again, right?

Pretty spartan on the details. If this occurred in the U.S. , we'd at least have erroneous details.

More payback for the Crusades...

I heard the shooter was the bass player for a black supremacist band.

Sad truth: Fark wont care because this incident can't be used to spite any US political party.

/Rampage killings, no matter where they happen, are equally tragic.

Considering how much the evangelicans meddle around in African politics, this will go political.

/just waiting on who the shooters were.

Attention, American Christian Republican Fundies: THIS is an appropriate example for "Help, help, I'm being oppressed!"
Is it possible that you folks MIGHT see the difference between this heinous, despicable deed and two men standing on the front steps of an American church kissing because the state has allowed them to legally marry??
Or the difference between this heinous, despicable deed and people vocally choosing not to eat at Chik-fil-a because it financially supports hateful, narrow-minded social groups?
Because there is one.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: Attention, no One cares about your tirade.


I wonder what the gun laws in Nigeria are like. they wee probably using banned weapons, which is impossible because banning weapons makes everyone safe!
 
2012-08-07 02:10:01 PM  
Please spay and neuter your churches.

/And mosques too, since this is probably a Boko Haram attack.
 
2012-08-07 02:12:13 PM  
Authorities say that aim of those who are carrying out the attacks might be to divide Muslims and Christians even more. The two communities have not enjoyed a great relationship in the past,"

Laaaadies and GENTLEMEN please give it up for the NEW KING OF UNDERSTATEMENT

Clearly it's the Nigerian Rifle Association's fault for making guns so easy to obtain.

Oh wait they have all the utopian gun laws that we have been told ad nausium would prevent these types of attacks. Semi-auto, full auto, and handguns are banned. How could this have happened? This story must be a lie.

I'm sorry, I rather liked my tirade. I thought it made a relevant point.

Plllltttttt!!

Fair enough.
Not that it gets any less horrific if this is a war related action, terrorism, or a political hit.

Funny - I had thought Islamists were the only group that hated Christians more than Liberals...

I'm so glad to see that derp and stupidity reach across to both sides of the aisle. You people farking suck.

Window seat, stat. Damn funny headlines for non funny events...

Have several aquantiances either in the Nigerian Church or working with it. This is tragic but all too common.

The more African Christians I meet, the more I wish American Christians lived their lives with that much integrity.

I imagine the next 100 or so comments will be atheists rejoicing that Christians died. Welcome to Fark.
 
2012-08-07 06:36:14 PM  
Horrifying news. Those Boko Haram bastards need to be effectively dealt with,though I'm not sure the creaky Jonathan administration is up to the task.

Still waiting for all the "Hooray! Christians died!" comments from those filthy Fark Atheists...

So many poor souls have died in the War on Christmas.

Can't we just get along?
