In the wake of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado, the religious right immediately starting blaming everything they already blamed — gay people, liberals, lack of God in schools and everything else they could think of. Here’s a few examples:
Jerry Newcombe of Truth in Action Ministries says it’s all because we’ve tossed God out of the public arena (whatever the hell that could possibly mean).
Bryan Fischer says it’s because we’re not using the public schools to teach kids to believe in his twisted, immoral theocratic vision.
Fred Jackson of the American Family Association blames it all on liberal churches and the media.
Flip Benham says that the shooter was the “spawn of the ideology of the Democratic Party” because we’ve “stolen God from the hearts of our children.”
I blame it on Judas Priest. And vaccines. And the Bilderbergers. And Obama.
