I’m sure you have heard about the tragic Connecticut school shooting this morning. It is being reported as “one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history.”
I’m sure nearly everyone reacted the same as me, and wholeheartedly agreed with the words expressed by Obama:
“ We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years. And each time I learn the news, I react not as a president, but as anybody else would as a parent. And that was especially true today. I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.”
The President went on to say:
“This evening, Michelle and I will do what I know every parent in America will do, which is hug our children a little tighter, and we’ll tell them that we love them, and we’ll remind each other how deeply we love one another.”
In times like these, we put aside our differences and rally together in unity. We are not Republicans or Democrats, atheists or theists.
I had no intention on posting anything today, but I was outraged to come home today and see this tweet by creationist Eric Hovind:How utterly disgusting. I know we skeptics love to pick on Eric and make fun of his father, but come on. This is even below him. How utterly disgusting.
To make matters worse, nut job Bryan Fischer had this to say:
According to Fischer, the shooting happened because we kicked God out of the schools. God was saying to us: “Hey, I’d be glad to protect your children, but you have to invite me back into your world first. I’m not going to go where I’m not wanted. I am a gentleman.”
