“Nightmares like the one in Newtown are rare. Yet a free society cannot make them absolutely impossible and still remain free. Good laws can do a lot, but they will never abolish all human evil. For that, there is ultimately only one answer: the cultivation of human goodness.”

.......Also another answer, that America must turn back to God.

With all the insane laws already on the books, your chances of obeying one while breaking another simultaneously is 50-50.

Add to that that the worst evil in this country today is government.

However, bad laws can allow evil that much more free reign when it is unleashed - such as gun-free school zones, which allow a madman to shoot victims without any viable counterattack possible. That is the point Jacoby misses.

Jacoby really doesn't get it. He's a walking contradiction.

Despite what all the atheists and secular conservatives say, you cannot have "human goodness" without God.

A purely secular "morality" is by its nature entirely relative and without foundation. After all, who is the ultimate arbiter? If my "morality" tells me it's all right to slay little babies, steal other people's money, bribe public officials and voters, promote sexual license, and all the other planks in the Democratic party platform, who are you to tell me I'm wrong?

“The cultivation of human goodness” is not the answer, either, Jeff Jacoby. The return of Jesus Christ in glory is. At that time all evil will be cast into the lake of fire, and those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will reign with Him in righteousness forever.

“He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” ~1 John 5:12

I disagree with Huckabee. It shouldn't be the job of schools or school teachers to teach God and Godly matters, that is the job of the parents. Put prayer back in school and government will tell the teachers what to teach about Him. I would not want my children bowing toward Mecca 7 times a day or learning to praise Budda or any other cult and that's exactly what would happen, government wants us to be "diverse" and "fair" to all religions.

There is absolutely nothing stopping children from praying in school now.

I attended public school for 12 years in small town, conservative, southern Missouri from 1951 to 1963 and never once heard a teacher pray in school. At graduation we had a local minister say a prayer and that's it.

Keep spoken prayer at home and church. No thanks to government approved prayer or a teacher's version of morality.

Be honest Huck, you would really want your Baptist version in schools wouldn't you? I'm Baptist but don't agree that my interpretation should be foisted on all children. Baptists teach your children at home, take them to church, same for Catholics and all others. Cultists and atheists too for that matter.

I thought that Adam Lanza killed 27 innocent people instead of 26 before killing himself?

Mike Huckabee, who asserted within hours of the atrocity in Newtown that 26 innocent souls perished because "we've systematically removed God from our schools." If only Americans would let God in "on the front end," said Huckabee, schools ravaged by murder wouldn't need Him so often "on the back end." It was a graceless thing to say

No, it wasn't. It was the truth.
