Operation Save America is one of the most extreme of all the far-right Christian groups in the United States, so it’s not at all surprising to hear them react to the recent school shootings with some of the most outlandish and ridiculous rhetoric:
Watching the Memorial service for the twenty-six precious lives taken from us was painful to say the least, but it was far more painful to the God who made America great. Newtown cancelled Christmas so it could properly mourn. How foolish, yet typical of governmental strategy to replace God. The “Interfaith” service was an affront to Almighty God. Those claiming to be His priests barely mentioned His Name –Jesus! After all, He is the only God there is!
What happened? We violently removed the fear of Almighty God from the hearts of our children. We expelled God from school and banished Him from the schoolyard. He was replaced with metal detectors, condoms, policemen, anti-bullying policies, No-gun zones, and violence of unprecedented order. Our strategy has replaced God’s Truth. We are losing our kids because we are ignoring God’s Law.
We violently removed God? Really? And if you’re looking for violence of unprecedented order, the Bible is a good place to look.
