Ted Baehr, self-declared movie expert and Worldnetdaily columnist, has a column in Charisma News about the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard and he’s got it all figured out. After going on and on about the shooter’s history of mental problems and violent behavior, he says nothing at all about stronger background checks to prevent him from buying a gun. Nope, it’s all about video games and Jesus.
It’s now clear, if it wasn’t before, that violent video games are a definite menace to society. So, Americans must ask themselves, “When are we going to end the violent video game madness?”
We must wean our young people away from these violent video games, and into more profitable pursuits. We must stop blaming guns for our problems, and start dealing with the troubled and evil people using the guns and the politically correct authorities who fail to enforce the laws already on the books.
But when the government tries to strengthen the background checks and close the gun show loophole to help prevent people like this from getting guns, people like Baehr scream “Nazi! Communist! They’re going to take our guns and throw us in FEMA camps!”
Also, we must end the arbitrary judicial bans on religious and moral teaching in our schools that deprive America’s children of the Ten Commandments that God gave Moses and the Hebrew people on Mount Sinai and the teachings that Jesus Christ gave his disciples in the Sermon on the Mount in Chapters Five through Seven of the Gospel of Matthew and in Chapters 13 through 17 of the Gospel of John.
Yes, of course. Tens of millions of people play violent video games and almost everyone goes to public schools. The percentage of both groups that go on killing sprees is a number so small that it would require several zeros after the decimal point. But yeah, that’s the problem. If we just teach people about Jesus in schools, no one would do this sort of thing. Because that works so well for those who bomb abortion clinics.
