WHY JIM ADKINSON SHOT 9 PEOPLE IN KNOXVILLE CHURCH 07/30/2008

“The man accused of a mass church shooting this morning was described by his Powell neighbors as a helpful and kind man, but one who had issues with Christianity,” writes By J.J. Stambaugh in KnoxvilleNews.com.

Jim D. Adkisson is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, where 9 people were shot and one was killed.

The man seemed to hate “liberals,” and Christians. Police say Jim Adkisson, 58, went to the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Knoxville to "kill liberals."

"We were talking one day when my daughter graduated from Bible College, and I told him I was a Christian, then he almost turned angry,” said neighbor Karen Massey

According to Massey, Adkisson talked frequently about his parents who "made him go to church all his life ... he was forced to do that."

It makes one wonder if his parents forced him to bath, go to school, eat and go to bed at night?
