Rapture ribbing leads to gunplay. How Christian of you, kind sir.

What? I didn't get taken to heaven in the Rapture? Time to kill some people I guess.

Well that’s mighty Christian of you.

From Fox 12 News in Oregon:

The motive in a workplace shooting in Eugene, Oregon may be the ribbing one employee took from a co-worker after the predicted May 21 rapture failed to occur.

The mother of the victim told The Register Guard that her son said Dale O’Callaghan took it personally when he was needled about his belief that he would be taken to heaven by the return of Jesus Christ.

Eugene police say O’Callaghan shot Jerry Andrews on Friday morning at LHM Hydraulics, where they worked. Andrews suffered a fractured shoulder.

Police say O’Callaghan was still at the business when they arrived just before 7 a.m.

His mother, Robin O’Brien, says her son didn’t want to speak with a reporter about the shooting, but she said O’Callaghan had expected to be taken up in the rapture.

But the suspect’s father, Ronald O’Callaghan, said his son is not among those who believed the rapture was going to occur on May 21.

The Register-Guard reports a police affidavit says that Andrews told investigators O’Callaghan called him “one of those Satanic people” after the shooting.

Sooooo you weren’t called up to Heaven when you thought the Rapture was going to occur and your plan to ensure you make the cut next time around is to gun down someone instead of turning the other cheek?

Lemme know how that works out for you buddy.

O’Callaghan, 39, is being held in the Lane County Jail on a charge of first-degree assault.
