Hollywood celebrity Wil Wheaton has long been known as an anti-gun liberal. Every time there’s a shooting, he blames the NRA and the Republican Party. Now, he’s taken his rhetoric up a notch by attacking faith in his latest Tweet following the Texas church shooting.
The murdered victims were in a church. If prayers did anything, they'd still be alive, you worthless sack of shit. https://t.co/iGHxPrYrLN

Many of us who practice a Judeo-Christian faith know two things: Prayers are always necessary and they don’t always get answered, at least not the way that we expect. It’s not appropriate to downplay the loss of those who had family or friends killed in the massacre, but when one knows there’s a real life waiting for them when they die, the sadness of death from this life has less of an impact.
Wheaton’s Tweets tell us he doesn’t understand this. I hope… and pray… that someday he will before it’s too late.
