well maybe it's simply the attempt to express our collective shocked when we
say
we'll try to make sense of the horrific shooting at sandy hook elementary school
we're not going to make sense
not from that which is totally disconnected from the cognitive capacity
of any
rational human being
the governor of connecticut Dan Malloy got it right when he said evil
when he said, evil has visited this community
president Obama in an emotional statement from the white house
spoke more as a parent than a politician
and he quoted the bible to bring comfort to the nation
churches were filled in newtown connecticut last night as candlelight
vigils were held
to grieve for the twenty seven innocent people killed
and the countless lives of those shattered by a few seconds of crazed
carnage
on friday
Neil Cavuto asked me
where was god
and i said it that for fifty years
we've systematically attempted to have God removed from our schools
our public activities
but then at the moment we have a calamity we wonder where he was
well the predictable left lit up the airwaves and bloggers sphere with a
violent vicious reaction
and jump to the conclusion that i said if we had prayer in school the shooting
would have happened
on said nothing of the sort
it's far more than just taking prayer or bible reading out of the schools
it's the fact that people sue a city so we are confronted with a manger scene or
a christmas carol that lawsuits are filed to remove across that's a memorial
to fallen soldiers
churches and christian on businesses are told the surrender their values on the
evite of government orders
to provide tax funded abortion pills
we carefully and intentionally stop saying things are sinful
we call 'em disorders sometimes we even say they're normal
and to get to where that we have to abandon bedrock moral truths
then we are asked
where was god
and i responded as i see it
we discord in m right out of our culture and we've marched him off the public
square
and then we express our surprise that a culture without an actually reflects
what it's become
as soon as the tragedy unfolded
i think God did show up
he showed up in the lives of teachers who put their lives between a gunman and
their students
he showed up in policeman who rushed into the school
not knowing if they would be met with a barrage of bullets
he showed up in the form of hugs and tears for children parents and teachers
who would live through the slaughter
he showed up at the overflow church services where people live candles and
prayed
and he showed up at the white house
where the president invoked his name in quoted from his book
and in a few days or weeks will probably
asked god to excuse himself from view and we will announce that our arrogant
prided we are now enlightened and educated
and we've evolved beyond needing them
and somebody's gonna suggest we pass a law to stop all this kind of thing
i'm i want to point out that we don't have to pass a new law
there's one that's been around a while that works if we'd teach it and observe
it
down shalt not kill
or there about nine others
but to tell you about him would require bringing God back in we know how
unacceptable
that might be
