Mike Huckabee knows why the shootings happened

Mike Huckabee Says Sandy Hook Shooting Happened Because We 'Removed God From Our Schools'

Fox News, casting about for answers in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, earlier blamed "online activity" and "gaming." This afternoon, former Arkansas governor and frequent Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee had a different idea: the shooting happened because we "removed God from our schools"

2. If God gets little kids killed because he/she/it isn't worshiped in school,

then God is a colossal dick and I don't want any part of any religion involving this particular God.

37. Maybe the shooter can use this as a defense ..

... That the Lord wanted him to kill the first graders as His proxy.

Huck a buck could be a witness, since he believes this crap.

10. Well, He *could* have sent bears

II Kings 2:23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

advantage of a tragedy that the uber-asshole Bryan Fischer already came up with. You'd think Fuckabee could be a little more original, but, then again...

42. Yes--referring to the GOP circus freaks. Not so much

a reference to the musical number, just borrowing the title.

43. Of Course You Know...

That the original reference is from the circus when something horrific would happen (like when a lion would attack the trainer or after a fall from the trapeze) the master of ceremonies would call for the clowns. Their job was to distract the audience from the accident so the show could go on.

a bible offers little protection from a close range shot from a semi auto Seig Haur.

Or is this another of those "God works in mysterious ways" things?

29. So why all the killings in churches and assorted church gatherings?. . .

Do they not pray hard enough, long enough, or with sufficient piety?

August 5, 2012. Six Sikh temple members were killed when 40-year-old US Army veteran Wade Michael Page opened fire in a gurdara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Four others were injured, and Page killed himself.

April 2, 2012. A former student, 43-year-old One L. Goh killed 7 people at Oikos University, a Korean Christian college in Oakland, CA. The shooting was the sixth-deadliest school massacre in the US and the deadliest attack on a school since the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

March 12, 2005. A Living Church of God meeting was gunned down by 44-year-old church member Terry Michael Ratzmann at a Sheraton hotel in Brookfield, WI. Ratzmann was thought to have had religious motivations, and killed himself after executing the pastor, the pastorís 16-year-old son, and 7 others. Four were wounded.

September 15, 1999. Larry Gene Ashbrook opened fire on a Christian rock concert and teen prayer rally at Wedgewood Baptist Church in Fort Worth, TX. He killed 7 people and wounded 7 others, almost all teenagers. Ashbrook committed suicide.

30. that is so god damned stupid

 

do people that say this shit actually believe this shit or are they just pandering to the weak minded lessers that don't know better.

I mean, Huckabee must have finished high school, at least. Or believes in gravity, at most.

these people are sick fucks fooling with people's helpless sick twisted minds.

32. How does he know that they don't have a moment of silence

in their school? Isn't the opportunity to pray or meditate as they each see fit enough for him, or does it have to be his fundamentalist baptist praying on the knees to make him think that will "protect" the children?

What an opportunistic fundy pig.
