@edgarblythe,
OK, then. Just checking that you weren't one of those reddish brown stripe heretics.

Atheists = monsters

The headline at The Drudge Retort site reads: Three Muslim College Students Killed By Atheist

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Chapel Hill police said Wednesday that an ongoing dispute over parking may have led to a triple shooting Tuesday night at a condominium complex on Summerwalk Circle.

Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, has been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Deah Shaddy Barakat, 23, his wife, Yusor Mohammad, 21, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19.

Hicks turned himself in to the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office in Pittsboro following the shooting, which happened in the Finley Forest complex off Barbee Chapel Road shortly after 5 p.m.

All three victims were shot in the head, sources said.

The three victims were Muslim, and Hicks is not, according to posts about atheism on his Facebook page. In thousands of posts on social media, many have now questioned whether the victims' Islamic faith was a factor in the shooting.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation's largest civil advocacy group for Muslims, called on law enforcement officials Wednesday to address speculation about a motive for the killings.

"Based on the brutal nature of this crime, the past anti-religion statements of the alleged perpetrator, the religious attire of two of the victims and the rising anti-Muslim rhetoric in American society, we urge state and federal law enforcement authorities to quickly address speculation of a possible bias motive in this case," CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement. "Our heartfelt condolences go to the families and loved ones of the victims and to the local community."

Police said Wednesday that they are looking into what led to the "senseless and tragic act."

@edgarblythe,
I don;t know what happened in this case but for sure, atheists are capable of ideologically-based hatred, just like anybody else...

@edgarblythe,
The amount of anti-religious hatred that get dished out has always amazed me. And indeed, it could at some point become dangerous, like any hate speech.

perhaps they're like everyone else, capable of hatred

ideologically-based, related to atheism, is a bit tricky since every atheist I've known in real life (and they are very few and far between even in Canada) are of the don't know/don't care/don't talk about it variety.

there's no steam about/against religion in the atheists I know in real life

@ehBeth,
Well, yes, people don't usually kill other people over issues they do not care about...

But the "don't care" don't have any strong position on the issue, so I wouldn't call them theists or atheists. Just like in a political poll, you have (for example) the leftists, the rightists, and then don't care/don't know. The latter are a separate category; they shouldn't be mixed up with the rightists or the leftists.
