“It is by the grace of God that a bullet missed me,” Tyler said. “I saw the smoke leaving the gun, and I literally watched bodies drop. It was crazy.”
A comment by a worker who escaped injury in the Wallmart shooting in Virginia.
So the ones shot did not have" the grace of god".?
So being religious does help then !!
What gets to me is that when people say that, they are assuming that God shows his grace to first to people in modern western countries.
Which seems to be in direct opposition to his tendency to have only ever appeared to people, in the middle east a few thousand years ago
The Christian/Jewish/Islamic god if he she it really exists really is a complete cock womble
What horrified me was the fact the news reached Australia within 15 minutes of it happening. That 13,000 people were displaced, 26+ killed & many injured only 75 klms from the capital Jakarta of one of the most populated countries in the world & it took two days to start appearing on American news sources is appalling.
As I said to a US correspondent "who wants the urgent news that Walmart has driven one of its managers over the edge? We know that most Americans are mad anyway & what's 6 more dead? They've just killed hundreds of thousands with covid & still are!"
