I’m sure you know someone that forwards and believes all of the conspiracies involved with the Boston bombings. If you haven’t been bombarded with this one yet, I’ll send you right to the debunking. There was not a “coexist” sticker on the carjacked car. Even if there was, I can’t imagine what it would do for a person to attempt tying that fragile thread of non-Christian blame into the whole sad picture. (Jalopnik)
