    It was a terrible event and it really upset me, but what is starting to piss me off is all this "Our prayers are with you". That's the most insulting thing you could say, what good are your prayers after their child has been murdered? Surely your God already decided their fate and groveling with him to change "his plan" because it's not what you want? Lucky for us, he doesn't exist. These people should spend less time pontificating phantasmagoria and actively help the damaged community or preventative measures for the future. What happened was disgusting, and it doesn't need to be covered in religion.

      You realise this is a wrestling news site not somewhere to rant about the exist of god or being pissed off with people’s prayers.

      For some a prayer is all they can offer. If you have a problem with people being openly sympathetic and offering prayer and condolances then maybe they should pray for you.
