Obsession with Martyrs..
I'm not sure if you guys are familiar with this situation, I'm going to assume not even though it's pretty old news.
I'm sure all of you know exactly what I'm talking about with just that word alone. There's no denying that it was a horrible tragedy and should not have happened. However, to think that it happened soley on the assumption that the two boys were "evil" is ridiculous and irrational. It happened for a reason outside of their state of mind. It happened because people naturally are careless and cruel, especially in the teenage years.
Now, on to why I'm posting on this particular topic. A girl that was killed at columbine was killed because she was a theist. No, not because she was specificly christian, she was asked if she believed in god by the two boys and replied yes, and they shot her. Now, I'm not going to say I don't wish death on anyone because that's not true. What I will say is, I wish death on no one that is a decent human being.. and of course babies. She seemed like a decent person, but keep in mind that my entire understanding of her existence comes purely from media coverage fabricated by Christians.
You'd think that they would respect her enough to give her a proper burial, post her picture and name on the memorial wall and let her name be at peace. However, her family has apparently decided to MARKET HER DEATH. That's right, you can get a Rachel Scott Tshirt, mug, bracelet, book about her, book about how columbine was a christian dominated school, book about how America has "Christian Roots". Not only is this absolutely disgusting, most if not all of it is FALSE. Christians are marketing the death of someone who they see as a modern martyr. While that's not suprising in the least bit when you put it that way, this one actually existed.
Why are they so FUCKING obsessed with martyrs? I really want to understand this.
Oh and for you christians reading, OMG CHRISTIAN SHOPPING SPREE!!!1
