Huckabee plays God card in school massacre

How delusional!

While the nation searched into the deep night for answers to the numbing tragedy that murderously claimed 20 children and seven adults, a prominent preacher who once aspired to the presidency insisted that he can explain it.

Speaking from his favorite pulpit at Fox News, Mike Huckabee unhesitantly played the God card.

By his reasoning, a young man went into an elementary school in Newtown, Conn, armed to the teeth because America has banned God from public schools.

The former Republican presidential candidate put it this way:  "We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools.  Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"

As the Huffington Post noted, Huckabee has debased rational discourse in the past when such massacres occurred.  "We don't have a crime problem, a gun problem or even a violence problem,"  the preacher said. "What we have is a sin problem" by denying God in our daily lives.

Sorry Abe,
but Huckabee was right on the mark.

Based on anonymous' comment, you still have work to do Grumpy.

How would Huckabee and Anon explain the shooting of 10 Amish students in 2006 while they were at school ?

Oh never mind, I'm sure they'd have some twisted logic or theology to explain that away. Sometimes ignorance is as frightening as bullets.

Our real problem is the Huckabees of the world who persist in wrapping the sins of the gun lobby in the shroud of piety.
