Insult to Injury

To paraphrase a joke from an old children's book:

A very poor peasant once died from hunger. He worked and worked but his grain went to the lord of the land and to the granaries of the churches and monasteries until all he could do was stuff himself more and more with whatever leeks, fennel, thistle, nettles or other plants he could scrounge from around the fields, and ate and ate, never getting enough to sustain himself, until his stomach split.
At his funeral, the priest began to sing him up to Heaven:
"Oh Lord, rest ye this poor soul your faithful son, in fields of green where sorrow is not known-"
At which someone from those assembled who had actually known the deceased spoke up:
"Ah, leave the man be, Father, of greenery he perished in this life, don't condemn him to it in the next one to boot!"

So I was flipping through reports on the latest fundie mass-murder and one particular line caught mine angry eye:
"The hashtag #PrayForNice is trending worldwide"

You degenerate, demented, despicable, sadistic, self-serving, self-congratulatory, self-aggrandizing pricks and cunts, no! You do not get to do that. Shut your retarded fucking brainwashed mouths! Eighty-four people were murdered in one of the bastions of freedom, in the land of liberte, fraternite, egalite, eighty-four more were murdered in addition to the hundreds upon hundreds murdered in mass murders in the past years, by prayer! Your prayers, your idiotic kow-towing before moronic antiquated superstitions, your weak-minded simpering legitimization of religious indoctrination murdered these people.

They died of prayer. The least you could do is have the decency to shut your cretinous mouths and not insult their memories by condemning their memories to prayer as well.
