Actor Michael McKean, most famous for his role in This Is Spinal Tap as well as other Christopher Guest films, tweeted a grotesque response to the mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, that left 26 people dead and 20 others wounded at the hands of what former classmates have described as an anti-Christian atheist.

Though social media has erupted with scores of leftists mocking the faithful's declarations of "hopes and prayers," McKean's mockery takes the contempt to a new low.

Responding to House Speaker Paul Ryan's request that people give the victims in Texas their "prayers right now," McKean wrote: "They were in church. They had the prayers shot right out of them. Maybe try something else."

McKean's response to what appears to be an anti-Christian bigot shooting up a congregation of Christians is more contempt for people of faith.

Other celebrities mocked the prayers of Christians as well, though none of them stooped to the level of Michael McKean.
