Don’t be surprised

December 31, 2012

I would like to comment on the horrible tragedy in Connecticut. It saddens me that this kind of evil runs rampant in this nation. But I also know that we should not be surprised by it....

"Until this nation and especially our leaders get on their knees and seek the guidance of our Lord and Saviour Jesus, we will continue to see more and more senseless violence."

Because we all know religion doesn't breed violence just as believing in fairy tales doesn't disconnect people from reality.

The violence, mayhem, and incest in the christian Bible, makes Sandy Hook look like a church social.

Maybe they should sell Bibles right next to guns. After all the moral among us pray with a Bible in one hand and a gun in the other.

Fine. Quit using fairy-tale terminology LIKE "evil"...and, try (actually) DOING something about the mental-health issues that are (typically) behind such events!!!

How many times do you NEED to "get on" YOUR "knees and seek guidance" to (finally) recognize the obvious???

Possibly one well placed exorcism could have prevented this tradgedy eh? Or maybe the ritualistic sacrafice of an animal?

To Hayes, Sham, Reeder,

"The violence, mayhem, and incest in the christian Bible, makes Sandy Hook look like a church social."

Comments such as the one above are only exceeded by your depravity. There are others that comment on this forum, who by their own admission are agnostic/atheists. While it is heart breaking to see anyone not have a love for our Saviour...at least they have the common decency to dispute their unbelief in a tasteful manner. It would behoove you three, along with whoever the newest enemy of the cross, Class144 to take notes on how to be more respectful. Your lack of "soul" should explain your commentary...and just when one thinks it can't get any worse...it does. You do give glory to your master...s a t a n....

This whole 'everyone needs to bow down and worship Christ' crap is exactly that. I mean no disrespect to anyone who reads and believes ever word in the bible. That is your choice and I can respect that, but this country is full of people of all kinds of different religions, I already believe there is too much of an attempt to FORCE Christianity upon people. So no, I don't believe it "should be in schools" although I don't think it shouldn't be allowed to be in schools. I don't think praying to God would've spared 20 innocent children. What Adam Lanza did, had nothing to do with God, it had to do with a mental disturbance. God is not going to protect you when someone comes bursting into the front door with a shotgun. When that person pulls the trigger, God isn't going to miraculously divert the bullet. It just doesn't work like that. Be sensible. Fine you want to believe that more Christianity is the answer. But in THIS WORLD real solutions are created by taking Re
