Colorado has had more than its share of news stories involving the hypocrisies and failures within Christian organized religion.

Recently, a disturbed young man, Matthew Murray, went on a mission of what he called "revenge" against a Christian community that neither understood nor helped him find mental sanity.

Evidently, the families of the victims and the dead gunmen met and reconciled, if that is possible. Link

To what extent are the Christian Pastors and churches responsible for this disturbed young mans final actions on earth?

Who is to blame? The overly strict parents? The Christian culture itself?

I hesitate to blame all christians, yet admit that this is our problem. If we are supposed to reach out to the needy and the hurting, where did we fail with this young man?
