Wil Wheaton angers people of faith with furious tweet at Paul Ryan

Ensign Crusher angers people of faith with furious tweet at Paul Ryan

Well, he was angry and rude, but he was right, dammit. These people were killed in church, while praying. If praying were effective, they'd be alive. Don't offer prayers, offer solutions.

  1. That really isn't how it works, but okay. Wheaton is not a bad person, but he's an emotional thinker with a temper who frequently shoves his entire leg for his throat.

    1. I agree Justin. He can be quite impetuous. He burned all bridges to TNG after the series ended, by lambasting the producers.

  2. You mean there is a specific way that prayer "works"? That I would like to see.

  3. I see it all the time, because I look for it. But it ain't Santa, and it ain't Harry Potter saying something vaguely Latin. You don't pray for a BMW and immediately hear a horn honk in the driveway. At least, not every time, on command.

  4. Mainly, Fox News dearly loves to clutch its pearls.

    I was an early poster to
    talk.startrek.alt.wesley.die.die.die, but you've got to admit the "thoughts and prayers go out" line is old and useless. I'd almost prefer Ryan go, "everyone's got a gun these days, get over it".

  5. Clearly the solution is more citizens bearing arms. If everyone in that church was openly carrying a 50 kiloton nuclear bomb, that would be an effective deterrent preventing people from going in shooting.

    1. By all accounts, it was a regular person with a gun that stopped the asshole.

      But, apparently it's never to early to use the dead and the grieving as a platform to spew nonsense

  6. Oh thank Christ, the "too soon" trope made it, I was afraid we'd have to do without you buddy.

    It's about 5 years since Sandy Hook. Still too soon? Good, put me down for that instead then.

    Who haven't we heard from? I paraphrase the esteemed H. Simpson: Here's to guns - the solution to, and cause of, all of life's problems.
