As the Nashville community reels from the tragedy of a fatal shooting at a local Christian school, some leftists have taken to mocking prayer as a response to the horrific incident.
On Tuesday, a 15-year-old student opened fire at an Antioch church-affiliated school, leaving one student dead and a teacher in critical condition. The shooter, who was apprehended at the scene, was taken into custody and charged with criminal homicide.
The horrific incident sent shockwaves through the Nashville community, and many took to social media to express their grief and support for those affected by the tragedy. However, some leftists seized the opportunity to mock prayer as a response to the shooting.
In response to a tweet from President Donald Trump offering his “prayers and condolences,” one user responded, “Why don't you do something,” while another wrote, “Prayers don't do sh*t.”
These insensitive comments have sparked outrage among many in the Nashville community, who feel that mocking prayer is inappropriate in the wake of such a tragedy.
“It's sickening that some people would use such a tragedy to mock prayer,” said Nashville resident Alan Smith. “At a time like this, it's important for everyone to come together and pray for the victims and their families, not to make jokes about it.”
The Nashville community continues to mourn the loss of the student and is praying for the recovery of the injured teacher. Meanwhile, local authorities are continuing to investigate the incident and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
