    They might as well just blame America next. They really don't have much else to blame left.

    Actually, I'd like to derail the potential ID/Evolution debacle and instead switch to this thorn in the side:

    Critics: Scientologists' Va. trip a time to prey
    BY GEORGE RUSH AND JOANNA RUSH MOLLOY

    "It's shameless, how they milk human tragedy to promote their organization," charges Rick Ross, whose CultNews.net has long tracked the group, which counts Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley among its members. "These young people [at VT] are experiencing trauma. What they need are qualified mental health professionals."

    HollywoodInterrupted.com's Mark Ebner brands the Scientologists as "vultures" who are "hindering legitimate, heroic rescue efforts with their spurious 'therapies,'" such as a "touch assist" - a light massage, which, Ebner says, is "supposed to distract them from their tragedy. It's a form of mini-hypnosis."

    "They did this at Ground Zero [after 9/11]," says Ross. "They did this in New Orleans [after Hurricane Katrina]. They look for very high-profile disaster that can be milked for photo ops" to promote the Church.

    Church official Sylvia Stannard tells us that about 20 "ministers" are in Blacksburg, Va. "We're doing a lot of emotional counseling, which is kind of our speciality," says Stannard. "We prohibit our people from proselytizing," but she adds, "they are going to tell them they are Scientologists" and "they will answer questions."

    The church, which preaches against all psychiatric pharmaceuticals, has already seized upon early reports that Cho Seung-Hui, the gunman accused of Monday's bloodbath, may have been taking antidepressents.

    Stannard says the killings demonstrate "these mind-altering drugs" make "you numb to other people's suffering. You really have to be drugged up to coldly kill people like that."

    Even before Cho's name was released, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a group founded by the church, said in a press release that "media and law enforcement must move quickly to investigate the Virginia shooter's psychiatric drug history - a common factor amongst school shooters."

    Ebner argues that the commission "claimed psychiatric drugs caused the Columbine High School shooting. But it came out later that the shooters went wild because they were off their meds."

    There is defiantly some link between sex and violence. We could ban all forms of sex.

    But then you will say, "Only the criminals will get laid." but it is stupid to say it is a bad idea because it is difficult to enforce but we should instead look at the facts and try to make the world a safer place.

    A part of me thinks this is really stupid, but then again if you think about it, dont other more respected religious groups offer aid to those who need it? I personally dont get the whole hypnosis thing, but to some it might work the same as a placebo effect would.

    "if something bad happens, dont look for excuses, look for solutions."

    i think this adagio fits here. But since its amerikkka, then i dont expect much.

    I can't help but LOL

    Edit: Also at original post, I can't believe they'd blame High School science classes on this. Seriously, anyone who was actually paying attention in those classes are probably the least likely bunch to do something like this.

    I guess they can't say college science classes too, since the guy was an english major.
