Have you heard huckabee's explanation for where god was on friday during the Sandy Hook shooting?


it should be clicky, idk why it isn't. it's 3 minutes long. 


a friend of mine on FB shared it and i couldnt hold my thoughts back. what are your thoughts? do you agree that god is essentially pissed off at us and that's why he didn't intervene, except when it was convenient to AFTER the shooting?

  • SassySue, in reality, it's the opposite. Countries with the highest percentage of religious people have the highest rates of crime, divorce, and teen pregnancy. Countries where there are more atheists and less religion have drastically lower crime rates.

  • Once again, does this mean the Amish girls who were shot a while back were closet atheists?

  • Ah, yes.  I remember those days when "People took the 10 Commandments as a oath".  It wasn't that long ago that we were able to stone our neighbors if they so much as flicked a light switch on the Sabbath and gave children the proper corporal punishment for not honoring their parents.

    I always wonder, when people opine about the necessity of the Ten Commandments, if they are even the least bit familiar with them.  Fewer than half of them have anything to do with our legal system, the first four dedicated to kissing a god's tushy . . . one is about murder, one is about bearing false witness, one about coveting a neighbor's ass and wife, one is about stealing, one about lying, and another about committing adultery.

  • God seems to step in when it's convent for himself, I often wonder those who say otherwise have ever read the bible.

  • I'm embarrassed to be from the same state as that blabbering moron.

  • I think, his point was that in America we have less morals and less accountability for our own actions. I did see it this morning on Facebook. When people / America in general has religion as a backbone - there were more moral values in out society...
    People took the 10 Commandments as a oath, as something that meant something to your own person being, your own common sense laws to live by...
