1. Yes, the more strident apologists here

 

are constantly harping in the "this had NOTHING to do with religion, it's all about mental illness" meme every time a case like this makes the news, and it's really disgusting.

Something all of them should read:http://www.salon.com/2015/06/18/its_not_about_mental_illness_the_big_lie_that_always_follows_mass_shootings_by_white_males/

The core idea is this: “mental illness” never created any idea, motivation or belief system. “Mental illness” refers to the way our minds can distort the ideas we get from the world, but the ideas still come from somewhere.
