All Mass Murderers Go To Heaven

Awful news from Pennsylvania, where George Sodini shot up a gym, killing four people (and injuring many others) before turning the gun on himself.

It can be tough being a Christian. You have to believe all sorts of unbelievable things. You have to go to church every Sunday and listen to some preachy dude beg for money.
