I know you were not addressing me, but I'm confused as to why you think considering an act "homosexuality" as being a "sin" has anything to do with loving or hating someone. You can love your neighbor, even if they are a sinner. It doesn't change morality of a behavior/action.

To the posters point, you can show love to a murderer (Boston bombers) even though their actions were sins.

What happened today in Boston was horrible. I hope we can find whoever is responsible and bring them to justice.

Sorry to seem cold but stuff like this has been happing in Europe for years and it has finally came over here. The goverment has been so worried about gun control that their securit has become lax. In years past after 9\11 they had bomb sniffing dogs walk the route. What happened this year ? I'm just saying if they took the precautions as in the past they may of found something and postpone the race until everything was cleared

True. What did anybody expect him to say at this early stage? All we really know is bombs went off, people died and it's a horrible tragedy.

Once again, I don't like Obama, but nit picking an issue where there isn't one is silly. I would love to poke at him and say this happened on your watch but in reality, we don't know who or why, so how can we criticize the president?

On a different note, you have to qualify for the Boston marathon, how pissed would you be that you didn't finish, I'm sure they are grateful to be alive, but you have to train very hard to run a marathon, this whole situation is just horrible.

I was interested to see photos from the actual scene, as in the damage done to the buildings and such.

well, FYI, don't try to find those photos, because you will see things you never wanted to see.


Also, I know they are saying a Saudi national is being questioned, I personally think this will end up being a Timothy Mcveigh type of ordeal.

Well organized terrorists are not going to follow up the WTC airplane deal with a couple of small garbage can bombs, unless this is the start of repeated nuisance attacks.

am I the only person who only can focus on the M&M guy giving the double thumbs up from all the photos and videos?

I also find it scary that the government had the ability to shut down all cell phone service without the knowledge of the cell phone carriers.

I think the psychological terror of that would be far worse.

After 911 it seemed like no one wanted to fly or be in big buildings. If shit like this started happening all over the place at random people wouldn't want to leave their houses. And it would be far easier to accomplish.

I hope it comes out to be just some nut job with a grudge.

I don't know who I hope is the culprit. As much as I hate to get into the political debate already, I dread hearing that an American planted the bombs. If that's the case you KNOW the mainstream media and anti-gun politicians are gonna spin it to make the bomber into a gun enthusiast and all the other BS that goes with it. No way they'll pass up milking another tragedy for all it's worth.

I guess I hope it was just some crazy middle easterner with a grudge who was working alone. There's already enough animosity toward them that not much will change, if it were just some dude working alone then the threat of more attacks is lower, and thisscenario would give the political agendas minimal fuel.

Who knows. I'm not a crazy conspiracy theorist, but based on some of the speculation I've seen I wouldn't be shocked if it were an inside government job either.....not that we'll ever find out the truth even if that is the case.

They announced last night that the cell phone service was never cut off. However, the police were asking people to shut them down to avoid an accidental explosion.

I'm afraid it may be the beginning of nusiance bombs like in Europe & the Middle East.

I do not believe it is a government conspiracy.

I never was a crazy conspiracy theorist, but our recent government has lost my trust and attempted to erode our nation in such a way that I no longer rule out the killing of innocent people to further one crazy ass bastards agenda.

Really? I watched the press conference where they announced they indeed shut down cell phone service to prevent other bombs from going off if they were triggered via cell phones.

20 minutes later they reported that Verizon, AT&T and Sprint all denied shutting down the cell phone towers.

That led me to believe the government had the ability to shut them down whenever they want....



Police sound pretty silly if they thought randoms shutting down cell phones would stop phone bombs from going off.
