A few years back I listened to a podcast about the stained glass window donated by the people of Wales.  I really hope to see it one day.  The spirit in which it was given makes it even more beautiful.

You left out "terrorists" to describe the KKK bombers.

The Bombingham nickname was well earned. 50 between 1947 and 1965.

Bombing a church...mass destruction? Sometimes it's ok to let a joke not be told. The deaths of 4 children may very be one of those times.

Can't read tfa, but going by the thread so far, I'd say people bombing a full church can be fully expected to kill dozens of people. The fact that they killed four makes it deserve the "only" qualifier. It isn't as if "they only killed four people" means that it is now okay or anything, just that the normal expected body count for such an event is expected to be much higher. With the added insult of painting the KKK as incompetent.

Back then, it was widely condemned, and rightly so.

I shudder to think what would have been the spin with OANN, Newsmax, Steve Bannon, the GQP.....

Anybody who kills children is monstrous.

Killing children of a repressed minority is diabolic.

The same way they've covered recent white supremacist mass shootings: ignore it, and if forced to discuss it, spew platitudes about mental health while blaming video games and/or popular movies.

Aw, thank you for explaining someone else's tone deaf comment, when I am fully capable of comprehending what they really meant.

Perhaps someone else can explain yours.

A Constitution that protects the KKK and Nazis isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

\neither is a Constitution that gives more value to land than people.

Never mind that the perpetrators were democrates......I love how you all blame the party that didnt do this...when it was your team.  Goebbels would be so proud of you.

Seriously go back and look the shiat up...it was your side not the GOP.

Remember it was the GOP that stopped your Confederate Civil war.  It was the GOP that stopped you southern Democrats from deny the civil rights of your fellow Americans.  You dont get to change the facts you lying bastards.

The church wasn't full. The idiots blew it up expecting it to not be populated but the FAFO as the kids were there doing something when no one was expected in the building.
Pretty good movie based on this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt01​15862/

There was supposedly a military leader in the Hundred Years War who was noted for his ruthless conduct towards non-combatants, when dying in his last seconds was screaming "No, no, Satan, you can't take me, I've been confessed, I've been given Rites..." and died screaming in terror.
I hope every one of those bastards who did it went out the same way.

Sorry i was thinking about another bombing. This was intended to kill many as it was set to go off on a Sunday.

We already have RICO laws against kidnapping, carjacking, GTA, human trafficking and sexual assault.
Treason IS punishable by death.

What we need is to get the klan out of law enforcement so that the KKK can no longer cover up their "satanic panic" kidnappings.

Lester Maddox might be on the ballot somewhere, if they have elections in hell. Here on earth, I cast my ballot according to what the candidates stand for, TODAY. Not in 1963 or even 2020.

Remember it was the GOP that stopped your Confederate Civil war.  It was the GOP that stopped you southern Democrats from deny the civil rights of your fellow Americans.  You dont get to change the facts you lying bastards.

Remember it is the Fascists Republicans that continues to memorialize the Confederacy, TODAY, yapping about being the "party of Lincoln" all along. It's also the Fascists Republicans who are jacking with the right to vote, TODAY.

The KKK is a conservative terrorist group.  Used to be conservative Democrats, currently conservative Republicans and other rightwing coonts.

Feel free to try to change it.

Failing that, feel free to find a country whose constitution is more to your liking.

Just make sure you understand theirs better than you understand ours.

And many have ties to socialist countries that they have left to come to the US to get away from ineffective / corrupt governments.  The GOP has done a good job of convincing them that the Democrats want that type of government here (which isnt really true...but people buy these arguments).

Yeah I'd say it was more of an IED and a relatively small one at that. Definitely not a WMD. At all.
