Just saw that a nutjob shot up a mosque in Christchurch. Many dead.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

Two mosques were the sites of what appears to be one coordinated mass shooting. Four have been arrested and a number of car bombs defused.

Lord have mercy.

Prayer thread. There is a forum for politics.

ROME — Pope Francis called on Christians to unite in prayer for the victims of two mosque attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left 50 people dead and dozens wounded in one of the worst mass shootings in the country’s history.

“I am close to our Muslim brothers and sisters and their entire community. I renew my invitation to unite with them in prayer and gestures of peace to counter hatred and violence,” the pope said March 17 during his Sunday Angelus address.

Around the world, thousands have joined in praying for the victims of the March 15 attack. The gunman, Brenton Tarrant, left a 74-page manifesto posted on social media, identifying himself as a 28-year-old Australian and white nationalist who wanted to avenge attacks in Europe perpetrated by Muslims.

After condemning the attack, Francis bowed his head as he led the thousands of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square in silent prayer for the dead and the wounded.
