“We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools,” Huckabee said on Fox News. “Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?”
So what, Mike? Are you saying they deserved it? Is that it? This is some kind of punishment being inflicted on people because they don’t want to pray to your god in public schools? If this is the kind of thing your god allows to happen, is it really any wonder why we don’t want him mentioned in a place where our children are learning? Our precious, beautiful and innocent children? Or maybe I’m overreacting. Maybe it’s not meant to be punishment. Are you simply suggesting that, had we allowed more prayer in schools, this crazed gunman, whose mental illness had obviously gone ignored by society prior, would have thought twice before stealing a gun and murdering almost two dozen children? Tell us more about how your god is great and worthy of worship, Mike. Tell us more about how you are a moral authority and that somewhere around this horrific and pointless slaughter there is a silver lining, if only we can all just open our hearts to your all-powerful, all-knowing god who sees fit to let 20 little children be shot to death simply as a means to make a point. Tell us more about how systematically removing god from our schools is a more likely culprit than the systemic overabundance and laughably-easy access to military-grade weapons in this country. Please, Mike. Tell us all.
Here’s the whole quote, and his “reasoning” behind it.
