Clearly letting people with a lot of stress and frustration and suicidal thoughts carry is the only solution.

Reading a little more about it, looks like this putz saw how famous people get when they shoot other people and die and wanted in on that action. 24 Hour News Cycle for the win.

Tennessee County May Ask God To Spare Them And Smite Someone Else
"We adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah."

A Tennessee county plans to take up a resolution begging God for mercy and asking that the deity not smite their community "like Sodom and Gomorrah" because of the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing gay marriage.

The "resolution condemning judicial tyranny and petitioning God’s mercy" was written by Blount County commissioner Karen Miller and will come up for consideration at Tuesday night's meeting.

Miller's resolution claims the "so help me God" part of the oath taken by lawmakers means they are committed not only to upholding the U.S. Constitution but also "higher Natural Law."

As such, the resolution calls on lawmakers throughout the state "to protect Natural Marriage, from lawless court opinions, AND THE financial schemes of the enemies of righteousness wherever the source AND defend the Moral Standards of Tennessee."

It continues:
It wrote:
WE adopt this Resolution before God that He pass us by in His Coming Wrath and not destroy our County as He did Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring cities. As the Passover Lamb was a means of salvation to the ancient Children of Israel, so we stand upon the safety of the Lamb of God to save us.

WE adopt this Resolution begging His favor in light of the fact that we have been forced to comply and recognize that the State of Tennessee, like so many other God-fearing States, MAY have fallen prey to a lawless judiciary in legalizing what God and the Bible expressly forbids."
At least some of the county's voters are unhappy with the resolution.

"That is not a primary characteristic of the God I know and love," Ginny West Case, a retired Christian educator in the United Methodist Church, told the Daily Times, a local newspaper. "I’m tired of God being used as a battering ram. The Bible, over and over, tells us God is the God of love and grace and mercy."

She added: "I think the wrath of God is more inclined to fall on those people who are so condemning and judgmental."

Both PFLAG Maryville and the Tennessee Equality Project are calling on supporters to attend the meeting to protest the resolution, and write to the commission via an online feedback form, which can be found here.

The resolution is the seventh item on Tuesday night's new business agenda -- just after setting school board salaries, and just before a letter from the state comptroller regarding approval of the budget.

Miller was elected earlier this year.

“I want to make a difference in the county,” she told The Daily Times in April. “I feel Blount County’s taxpayers need accountable representation. I want to work for and not against the citizens.”

Blount County has a population of 126,339, according to U.S. Census data, and includes part of the Knoxville area, but not Knoxville itself.
It's a game of one-upsmanship where no one wins.

I hereby adopt a resolution petitioning God Almighty to spare me from his wrath and instead smite Dave, who never shows up for meetings on time and always leaves food at his desk.

It's funny if you actually read the story of why God smote Sodom and Gomorrah. They were arrogant rapists who demonized and degraded the poor and disenfranchised, or you know, conservatives.

If you keep reading Genesis, Lot's daughters both date rape him. So you know, guess that should be legal.

I'd always interpreted it as a violation of the ancient rules of sacred hospitality. Assumed it was a metaphor or perhaps editorializing by someone along the way. Then again, being Catholic, I'm not really required to strictly believe anything in the bible unless it makes me feel ashamed somehow.

From a strictly theological standpoint, I'd always interpreted the story of the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah as one of the cooler pictures in my illustrated children's Bible along with the serpent tempting Eve, and Satan appearing before Jesus during his fast.

I'm sure that there was strategically placed hair or foliage. I did like the Garden picture with the dinosaur though.

Speaking of that old time religion:
TN Lt Governor Ramsey wrote:
The recent spike in mass shootings across the nation is truly troubling. Whether the perpetrators are motivated by aggressive secularism, jihadist extremism or racial supremacy, their targets remain the same: Christians and defenders of the West.

While this is not the time for widespread panic, it is a time to prepare. I would encourage my fellow Christians who are serious about their faith to think about getting a handgun carry permit. I have always believed that it is better to have a gun and not need it than to need a gun and not have it.

Our enemies are armed. We must do likewise.

"Put your sword back in its place for all who draw the sword will die by the sword", "The meek shall inherit the earth", "Do not resist an evil person; If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also", "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul", yadda yadda...

Both, really, but thanks to the lovely double standard Lot's daughters, being filthy women, have a whole conversation out loud about how they're going to rape their father to the last detail, whereas the pious male just Ham walks in on Noah sleeping naked drunk, and then it isn't discussed at all except that Noah knows what was done to him and curses Ham's children. So really Noah's could be interpreted as anything from "Ham saw his dad's diddle" to "Ham buttraped the unconscious Noah." Both stories are basically about the same thing, the dangers of inebriation that leads to worse sins.

Probably not the best suggestion when you consider that Dylann was a devout Lutheran and Vester Lee Flanagan II was a Jehova's Witness. Arming the Taliban and whatnot.

I think the thing with Ham was that he saw Noah naked and bailed, instead of taking time to cover him up.

You got a source for the Flanagan thing?

Honestly "raised as", and "still was" are two different things. Any official word from the JW?

Guy is dead so not like you're gonna get perfect confirmation. Some places say in his manifesto he said Jehovah made him do it, but I feel these types of reports are less reliable.

I guess if we ignore all the attempts to combine church and state and complaining about how not being allowed to persecute people is persecution, sure. I never "hear" anyone say it, nudge nudge wink wink.

His Twitter timeline is obviously different than mine, since I hear about people attacking the First Amendment at least four times a day. Most of those are overblown. But I hear about it all the time.
