My French teacher last year told us about this event. I'm a Canadian and I had never heard of this shooting before then. It's not very well-known here, or at least among my fellow high schoolers.

"Why does it matter what other people believe?" is an annoying—and I think ignorant—question. Hello, what do you think dictates people's actions, good or bad? Thank you for posting this!

Interesting look into the mind of a theist. Thanks! As a person from a family who was never devout (i.e., we never prayed before meals, or bed, and only went to church every other Sunday, and eventually only on Christmas, etc.) I have a hard time imagining what goes on in the minds of the pious. I was only a theist until I was ten; I hardly remember losing my religion, so I need to read about how others became atheists to understand the process.

@JonelB But you have to look at it historically. They didn't have birth control back then, so it was assumed any woman who had sex was pregnant or had been pregnant. Since a man would want to make sure the children his wife were having were his own (for evolutionary reasons), he would want to have a wife who was a virgin.
Of course, this kind of thinking today is very misogynistic. And to deny birth control to couples is so wrong (Catholics…). I'm sure the reason why women are thought to not want or think about sex as much as men is because of what I discussed in paragraph one.
Maybe it's just my feminism speaking, but I think this is one of your best posts. Thank you.
That woman makes me laugh! She goes on about how creationism just "makes sense" and is "easy to explain to your kids." Atomic theory isn't easy to explain to children. According to her logic, that means atomic theory can't be true.
