taurusowner: How do this guy's claims have any more veracity than the "myths"? He just makes a list of 7 general ideas regarding Columbine in his blog and then write his own opposing views. Not sources, no quotes or evidence. Just his own views.
give me doughnuts: Fart_Machine: Number 6 Myth is bullshait.Do you think she wouldn't have gotten shot if she had answered "No"?
Fart_Machine: GoldSpider: Fart_Machine: Number 6 Myth is bullshait.Hence "myth"?The blog is saying it's true. And myths aren't necessarily all bullshait.
Myth #6: Cassie Bernall was martyred for her faith in God.Truth: According to the eyewitness under the table with her, Cassie was shot when Eric poked his shotgun under the table and said, "Peekaboo." The 911 tape verifies this testimony.The martyr story arose from the testimony from another student in the library, Craig Scott (brother to victim, Rachel Scott), who recounted a conversation that took place across the room. Valeen Schnurr was the one who actually professed her faith in God, and this took place after she was shot. As she lay bleeding, she prayed, "Oh my God, don't let me die." Dylan turned around and asked her, "God? Do you believe in God?" Valeen said, "Yes, I believe in God." When the killer asked why, she replied, "Because it's how my parents raised me."
JackieRabbit: Clicks link. sees http://thegospelcoalition.org. Laughs. Because I've never heard any of these "myths" source doesn't confirm my preconceived biases, therefore all referenced material is invalid and my beliefs remain safe and unchallenged.Praise Jeebus!

Crewmannumber6: Because that is not a myth, subby
Fart_Machine: Number 6 Myth is bullshait.
gunga galunga: GregoryD: I've read the speech and it is exactly as it is depicted in a film. A giant fark off to the mayor and the people affected by the tragedy. It is far more embarrassing when Heston is intercut saying from his "cold dead hands" and a mourning father.Here is the transcript of the actual speech. Michael Moore edited in the "from my cold, dead hands" from a speech he gave a year later.You never notcied how Charlton Heston's shirt and tie magically change colors?
Netrngr: Fart_Machine: GoldSpider: Fart_Machine: Number 6 Myth is bullshait.Hence "myth"?The blog is saying it's true. And myths aren't necessarily all bullshait.Actually the blog says its not true. Reading comprehension FTW!
Fart_Machine: Well I stand corrected then. Bleary-eyed and wanting for coffee do not a good combination make.
Ant: One of the comments in the article: Myth #1 is patently false. While the killers were not complete social outcasts, they were indeed bullied and targets of attacks by athletes at the school. By every stretch they were absolutely "social misfits who were bullied by their classmates"Also, they were indeed friends with many of the Trench Coat Mafia, who as a group had no responsibility.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Harris_and_Dylan_KleboldI'm not so sure being bullied by jocks can be counted as being social outcasts. Jocks, as a group, were jerks to almost everyone.
karmaceutical: Callous: karmaceutical: So how does the idea that Columbine was a failed bombing and not a planned shooting change anything exactly?Believing that girl was shot for her faith doesn't change anything either. She's still dead. But understanding exactly what happened and the true motivations and plans will better help in identifying and preventing the next one.Someone posted above that they got grilled because they fit the false profile of the killers. That matters. He got put through that because the faculty was given bad/false information. You can't learn from an incident like this or work to prevent another one if you are given lies, myths, and omissions as accurate information.All these kids killed in this tragedy, whatever it was, and your stuck on some other kid who got "grilled" by his faculty?
RET71: I didn't know about #1 until I read that article. Knowing they weren't bullied outcasts turns the way one looks at Columbine upside down.
DontMakeMeComeBackThere: EyeballKid: [images.politico.com image 297x223]Sure, subby. Whatever you say. Moore was the creepy opportunist in that situation...You do know the real story behind the "cold dead hands" quote, don't you?Trolling...or just stupid?
JackieRabbit: Callous: JackieRabbit: Clicks link. sees http://thegospelcoalition.org. Laughs. Because I've never heard any of these "myths".Praise Jeebus!Where the hell were you when it happened? I heard all of those myths more than once and some of them many, many times. Or did you just dismiss it all as wrong because you saw "gospel" in the url?Getting the facts of what really happened and not listening to what stupid, emotional people thought or felt about what happened. That's where I was. If you think that some Christian blog is going to be objective, you're deluding yourself. They have an agenda and that's all they serve. Truth is irrelevant. Reason is futile.

sigdiamond2000: This actually sounds like a pretty fascinating book. I might have to buy it.
