I have not been able to get independent colaboration on this yet, but an article in Christian World View Network relates that the gunman who murdered 32 Virginia Tech students may have been targeting Christian and Jewish students.

I also spoke this morning, right after this meeting with a peace officer here in Virginia who had access too and has read some of the transcripts of the other ten videos that are not being shown on the news. The shooter (Cho) was quoting verses from the Koran and had Ishmael written on his arm and as his return address on the package sent to NBC. It appears that he did not randomly pick his targets but rather chose classes that had high concentrations of Christians and Jews in them-he was targeting Christians and Jews!!!!!

How he could have done this is a mystery to me; it appears that certain classrooms were hit as targets of opportunity. I doubt that VT classrooms are sorted by religious affiliation but he might have attended some and picked up on various conversations/attitudes.

As Virginia is in the Bible Belt, many believers could have been in the classrooms as representative of the entire student population.

Does anyone have any further information on this?

CBS News reports that a bunch of lunatics led by a virulent anti-gay pastor is not going to let these poor families grieve in peace.

An anti-gay religious group known for protesting at the funerals of American soldiers killed in Iraq is planning on appearing at services for those killed on Monday as well.

The Topeka, Kan.-based Westboro Baptist Church (WBC), which s not affiliated with any national Baptist organization, announced plans to protest at victims’ funerals only hours after 32 people were killed in the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. They also may protest at other events on the Virginia Tech campus.
