So here we have 'Jared Loughner #2' with a twist; James Eagen Homles as Batman's nemesis 'The Joker'.
Are guns to blame? I say no. Secularism taught in the schools is to blame. Children today are indoctrinated into their social media culture where religions of all kinds are mocked, especially Christians and God Almighty. The mere mention of God is subject to attack and relentless bullying. The 'G' word is met with the same fierce reaction as the 'N' word. Blaming guns for a person's actions is a diversion from the REAL culprit in our society; The secular, Godless individual.
What is your own personal experience with your children's school and their attitude towards Christmas, Easter, Christianity or other religions and God?
Just FYI the shooter and his family have been described as being “very active” in the Presbyterian Church.
Spelling correction: “Holmes” instead of “Homles”.
The wrath of God is being revealed
in our country. It’s obvious.
My focus is on the schools, however. Today, in households where both parents work, the Godless schools take control. We all know about their politics, but it’s the EMPHASIS and mockery of one’s belief in God and ‘values’ that is the culprit, in my opinion.
Pastor Bonhoeffer (the martyr) saw in America by 1931—the same destruction within the Christian churches as was done to most German “Christian” churches—the Removal of God-—paid for by John D. Rockefeller in the USA and other Marxist/socialist elites to destroy God from within—pastors were bought and paid for at Riverside Church and in many communities and all of Germany—the “spokesperson” put on all covers of magazines in the 30’s to promote the “Religionless Christianity” which is nothing but Secularism. Even the Catholic Church was infiltrated by homosexuals and Satanists before Vatican II.
Many so-called “Christian” churches are no more. They exist INO. Many now glorify sin and perversion and call themselves “Christian” but they practice Satanism/Marxism. Words mean nothing in Marxist societies.
I have no idea what schools you are familiar with but I can tell you what you say is not true of any of the schools with which I am familiar.
A kid at my Catholic school shot another kid for giving him bad weed. So take that for what it’s worth.
I agree with you wholeheartedly. I would add that the making of violent movies, music...is part of the problem too.
Like he said, "Secularism...."
Anyway, really, the guy was just nuts. Lots of religious people kill while yelling words like "Allah Akbar" or something like that.
It was like shooting fish in a barrel for James Holmes because fish are unarmed.
Does your school call ‘Easter Vacation’ ‘Spring Break’? Does your school call ‘Christmas Vacation’ ‘Holiday break’??? I don’t think you’re seeing the forest for the trees.
I also agree with you re: the schools. Government schools are inherently Marxist.
My grandson knows what Easter is and what it celebrates. He knows exactly what Christmas is. That is not up to the school. It is up to his mother and my husband and me. He has jewish friends. So does my daughter. She had one Jewish friends who celebrated the Christmas holiday with us..she celebrated Hannukah with her friend’s family. This is the family’s role.
I should have said I understand exactly what you are saying. They are good points and have substance. Schools have certainly changed since I attended. My family and I have adjusted accordingly.
When kids can't mention God's name in school, that tells them everything to do with God is out, including his commandments like, Thou shalt not kill.
Along with the schools and almost worse in my opinion is the media's assault on God and His commands. How many times has you seen someone on tv or in a movie treated like they were crazy if they wasn't having sex before they are married? Or when Christians are painted in a negative way. The media is trying to sexualize our kids as early as possible. Watch Nickelodeon or Disney and the commercials you will see what I mean
Children can mention God’s name in school. The teachers, coaches cannot. The children can pray. The teachers, coaches may not lead them in prayer. Having said that, trust me, I know what you are saying to an extent. I do not think any teacher is going to tell a child that Thou Shall Not Kill is wrong. But schools have changed greatly. When I was in sixth grade, our teacher took us on the train, from a small town west of San Antonio to the capitol building in Austin. We all..about 19 of us...stood under the mezzanine and sang Precious Lord and Were You There? Then we prayed. Can you imagine now?
Oh wait...how could I forget? And The Old Rugged Cross. I had a solo part in it. Still love the song and have taught it to my nine year old grandson. He loves gospel now.
Sickening! Your post is a loathsome attempt to exploit this tragedy push your religious agenda. It is just as slimy as Bloomberg doing the same to push his gun control agenda. At least let the grieving parents bury their dead children before you try to use them for your crude proselytizing.
Thanks for proving my point. I’ll not say the “G” word. I don’t want to offend you.
