This is going around FB... My heart as I know every else's goes out to all of these families, but
do you honestly believe that keeping God out of the public schools is the reason behind this horrific day?
My response to this (and I am sure will not go over well ) was this:
"You Don't Need God in our schools if HE is already in OUR Hearts..
Not having God in this school did not create what this Monster did."
Does keeping a religion in schools/work places/ etc... really prevent things like this from happening or is this another way for some religious ppl (not all) to blame a mass of ppl who wish to work and play in a more even field?

If that is true, then why do far more secular countries have a much lower rate of violent crime?
The problem with America is there is too much god and it absolves people of personal responsibility.

Of course not. If there were an all-powerful, all-knowing, omnipresent god, how could he be prevented from going anywhere? Such a god would know that those children were going to be killed, because "omniscient" means to know EVERYTHING - everything that was, everything that is, and everything that will be. To be omnipresent, means to be EVERYWHERE. There would be no place where he could not be. To be omnipotent is to be ALL POWERFUL, which means that he can do whatever he wants to do, whenever and wherever he chooses. There is nothing he can't do, no place he can't be, and nothing that he doesn't know. Because prayer isn't forced in schools any longer shouldn't be an issue for such a being as God, unless, of course he chose to let those children die to make a point. If so, what an omni-asshole he would be, if he were real.

Do these idiots actually believe that if those kids were forced to recite a prayer before class, that this tragedy would not have happened? Really?
