Yup. Kind of sad when you think about it.

Mr. Hicks, appeared to have a deep dislike of all religion. On his Facebook page, nearly all of his posts expressed support for atheism, criticism of Christian conservatives or both.

Last month, he posted a photo that said, “Praying is pointless, useless, narcissistic, arrogant, and lazy; just like the imaginary god you pray to.”

His wife also pointed out his support for gay rights and the right to abortion.
That's sounds more like your typical liberal.

Better luck next time nailing a Christian for something like this:

Chapel Hill shooting: Craig Stephen Hicks condemned all religions on Facebook prior to 'Muslim mass-murder' arrest - Americas - World - The Independent
Liberals were hoping that this guy was some conservative christian white male.

People are programmed to think a certain way before the facts are presented. I have no idea why people are sounding off when they don't even know the story. I can't believe many Americans haven't realized that the media paints stories a certain way to victimize any and everyone they can and sensationalize it to sell. Folks fall for it hook, line, and sinker time and time again.

Edited to add - not that his voting record could either excuse his crime or worsen it.
I'm very glad i don't have that kind of neighbor.
No one has to guess. Based on all the liberal and progressive group he belongs to on FB, he's clearly a liberal.

You noticed that too?? Regardless if it was over a parking space or due to the fact that they were Muslims that were killed, it is a tragedy. I can't imagine killing three people over a parking spot, which leaves me to conclude it had more to do about religion that a parking spot. I wonder if he had a parking spot problem with other people living there.

If he used that as a "defense" I'm sure you would support him.
