“I go to church. I take food. I wouldn't go to a business and take food. My church hires its own staff and is well-known for its charities.

Actually, I dislike business. Particularly big business. Their top management quite obviously wants your money so as to live well. Let's tax them.”

“His personal income is taxed, but probably lightly since he has access to expert advice/help. God probably needs some rich guys, but not ones with an unequal quantity of the loot. D day is probably on the way for the 1%, even the 5%. They better invest some of their loot in moats, high fences, and armed security at their various castles and chateau's. Folks tend to get a bit cranky when they are faced with a dead end existence and an even more dead end view of the future.

And yes, many so called religions should be paying taxes, particularly property taxes.”

“I believe 4 men were killed too. His problem was not misogyny, but mental illness.”

sanelity on May 28, 2014 at 01:24:30

“If you think HuffPo commenters care about men getting killed, you are mistaken. It wouldn't matter if the ratio was 10:1 male to female murders, as long as at least one woman was a victim, that is all that matters.”

“Ah, right. The old only one thing can exist theory. That's grand.”

Millie Mapinduzi on May 27, 2014 at 08:29:37

“misogyny and mental illness are not mutually exclusive. How he chose to express his mental illness was misogyny. There was an old man on the streetcar last night who was obviously a lifelong alcoholic, mentally ill and also perhaps retarded or with a brain injury. But he harassed and threatened and swore at ONLY the women on the streetcar, particularly the women of colour, and as soon as a man spoke to him or approached him, he hung his head and pretended to not understand, only to start up on his abusive rants at women as soon as he felt the male had left. e.g. "Oh you're a beautiful woman, i hope you die, b*tch". That is an example of mental illness and misogyny for those of you so blind and wrapped up in your own privilege and denial who feel the need to pretend that a manually ill person who hates women is simply mentally ill and there is no socio-cultural context for that mental illness or the way in which it manifests.”

ziziggy12345 on May 26, 2014 at 23:38:39

“NO it was definitely misogyny, no question of that given his video”

FangedShui on May 26, 2014 at 23:10:12

“Okay, so the next time I ask a man out and he says no, then I get to go blasting away, because I have chronic depression (a mental illness), so that excuses all the bloodbath.

Mental illness is a copout. This was just another case of a spoiled brat punk thinking he was entitled to something that was never his to begin with, and getting mad at the world for not kissing his rear end.”

thismachinekillsfascists on May 26, 2014 at 22:35:02

“He killed those men simply because they were around women. THAT is sick.”

ChillMe on May 26, 2014 at 18:02:39

“Did you read his manifesto? It is sickening the way he describes women.”

“Read his maifesto. He hated women.”

Christopher Nagy on May 26, 2014 at 16:14:30

“His problem was misogyny and mental illness. The guy planned to murder every woman in a sorority house; that target wasn't just plucked from the aether, it's a direct result of his misogyny. He failed, but that failure doesn't change his motivations.”

“did you read his manifesto? he said women should be put in concentration camps and starved to death.”

Grinling Gibbons on May 26, 2014 at 12:46:11

“He had both problems. You cannot read this man's writings or see him speak without understanding immediately that he was aflame with a passionate misogyny.”

“Apparently, we men are merely cannon fodder.”

AngstyWench on May 26, 2014 at 12:41:19

“Read the manifesto. The first sentence is about how much he hates women. When it gets to the part about putting them all into concentration camps and killing all but a few for "breeding purposes", get back to me on the "not misogyny" thing. He also states he is going to kill the guys because they got the girls he wanted. Yes, he's mentally ill, but that does not change what his focus was. http://www.scribd.com/doc/225960813/Elliot-Rodger-Santa-Barbara-mass-shooting-suspect-My-Twisted-World-manifesto

“Umm....no did you read his post? Don't lie to yourself and everyone else here. The boy was a member of several online women-hating forums. It's not even a question. It's a fact. They called him a 'hero' for what he did. This is misogyny at its worst. His "mental illness" seems to be an epidemic...a contagious one.”
