    Please.

    God steered the bullet towards the Bible.

    He would have for the next four but I dunno, he ran out of mana or something.

    Article keeps being added to. The people there thought it was a skit at first:
    A pastor shot and killed during his Sunday sermon deflected the first of the gunman's four rounds with a Bible, spraying a confetti of paper into the air during a horrifying scene that congregants initially thought was a skit, police said.

    The gunman strode down the aisle of the sprawling First Baptist Church shortly after 8 a.m. and briefly spoke with The Rev. Fred Winters before pulling out a .45-caliber semiautomatic pistol and shooting at the pastor, Illinois State Police Director Larry Trent said.

    "We thought it was part of a drama skit ... when he shot, what you saw was confetti," said congregant Linda Cunningham, whose husband is a minister of adult education at the church. "We just sat there waiting for what comes next, not realizing that he had wounded the pastor."

    Police said the Maryville congregation had a plan in place, including a protocol for lockdown, in the event of an incident such as Sunday's attack.

    aren't librams equipped in a different slot other than weapons/shields?

    I'm not really up to WoW terminology, I quit playing before the first expansion.

    edit: so in reality I don't believe I ever played a paladin, I was much more Horde-friendly.

    I assumed as much, but I figured I should ask anyway.

    Eh, I doubt Blizzard actually lets a class use books in weapon slots regardless.

    No, there were off hand items that looked like books that were just stat sticks. Paladins had them too, but usually it was a shield with a bunch of paladin stats instead of an orb or a book.

    that's absurdly obscure, even from you.

    Seriously, this is a tough thing, because my knee-jerk reaction would have been "THIS IS WHY CONCEALED CARRY IS A GOOD IDEA" but this isn't a fucking diner robbery or something, you know? There were a LOT of unarmed civillians in this situation, and you got a dude with a snub-nose .357 or something going cowboy when shit gets western, he may not take the time to find a clear line of fire.

    The pastor at "my church" started getting pissed about a car alarm going off outside today. He made a joke about praying for it to stop and then it immediately stopped, so he raised his hands up like he was what caused it. Some might think he was just being funny but this is a man who honestly would believe he is responsible

    Fortunately, it started up again a couple seconds later and he got put in his place :x

    well, they've had drama and dramatic works within and throughout sermons before, so it wouldn't be unheard of.

    Also, who assumes what it turned out to be, with any conviction?

    maybe a what-if contingency type thought, but for fo' real

    he is close to my age, but i indeed do not

    he's from Troy, which is very close, but I don't know a lot of people from there.

    Grew up in Collinsville, now live in Edwardsville
    not that that means anything to most people, unless you break out google maps.
    ok, map of the respective cities (towns/villages, etc)

    and apparently you can check out some stuff he said, since the church recorded his messages.
    i may have to peruse them

    In July, two people were killed and six wounded in a shooting rampage at the Tennessee Valley United Unitarian Church in Knoxville, Tenn. An out-of-work truck driver who police say targeted the church for its liberal leanings pleaded guilty to the shootings and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

    The end of the article about yesterday's shooting wraps up with other church shootings, this one being the last.

    Damn, man, that is fucking scary.
