It wasn’t that long ago that the story of someone walking into a fitness club and opening fire because he couldn’t get a date would dominate an entire news cycle. Now, these things slip deeper into a newscast.
George Sodini killed three women and wounded nine others in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania. Police say he may have fired as many as 52 shots before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.
Mass shooting after mass shooting after mass shooting, the question is always the same. Why? Even when we have the answer, we still have the question.
Sodini kept a Web diary on which he laments his inability to get a date and says “the worst people by far are the religious types.”
Which makes one of his last entries — Monday’s — all the more strange:
Unfortunately I talked to my neighbor today, who is very positive and upbeat. I need to remain focused and absorbed COMPLETELY. Last time I tried this, in January, I chickened out. Lets see how this new approach works.
Maybe soon, I will see God and Jesus. At least that is what I was told. Eternal life does NOT depend on works. If it did, we will all be in hell. Christ paid for EVERY sin, so how can I or you be judged BY GOD for a sin when the penalty was ALREADY paid. People judge but that does not matter. I was reading the Bible and The Integrity of God beginning yesterday, because soon I will see them.
His Web site has been taken down but wikileaks.org has the diary posted.
