Huckabee Doubles Down, Blaming Contraception Now for Sandy Hook Massacre

Huckabee Doubles Down, Blaming Contraception Now for Sandy Hook Massacre



Did Huckabee really mean it when he claimed that madmen shoot up schools because his god isn’t being preached from the chalkboard? Short answer: Yes, though he’d rather not be held accountable for it. This is what fundies mean when they call themselves “Bible-believing Christians”. The Bible has lots of accounts of God smiting people who don’t worship or obey him by killing their children, and Huckabee and other Bible literalists believe that’s just how their god rolls. The problem is that Huckabee is too much of a coward to just say it. So he dumped a bunch of words trying to “complicate” his argument Saturday:

But if you listen carefully to what he’s saying, he’s still making the same argument: That “morality” is strict adherence to a fundamentalist-defined Biblical law, and his god is punishing us for not doing that by killing children. There’s no other way to understand the claim that we’ve “given up” having morality. He believes there is only one morality, and that’s strict adherence to his definition of Biblical law. We have plenty of moral laws in this country that have nothing to do with his narrow version of morality. For instance, many of us think it’s morally wrong to exploit the deaths of schoolchildren to push your faith that you chose largely because it justifies your misogyny, which is what Huckabee did.

And make no mistake: Huckabee is specifically thinking of women’s rights when he’s thinking of the “immorality” that brings his god’s vengeance in the form of an angry young man shooting up a school. This isn’t speculation; he specifically singled out the sale of contraception (which he calls “abortion”, but we now he’s talking about contraception because abortion pills are not sold in pharmacies) as the sin that offends God so much he has to send murderers to kill children:

I guess Huckabee thinks that if women try to exert control over when they have children, God will take it back by having a few children killed.

Tennessee pastor: Mass shootings because schools teach evolution and ‘how to be a homo’

By David Edwards

Old Paths Baptist Church Pastor Sam Morris
 

A Tennessee pastor on Sunday told his congregation that the number of mass shooting were escalating because of schools were government “mind-control centers” that taught “junk about evolution” and “how to be a homo.”

Old Paths Baptist Church Pastor Sam Morris began speaking about last week’s school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut by warning that “this sermon will not be pleasant.”

“We get all up in arms about 20 children being shot in a day care but we don’t give one good-glory rip about the 4,000 that were removed violently from the wombs of their mothers [in abortion procedures] the same day,” he explained. “I believe they use children and Christmas and all that to pull on our heart strings about gun control. That’s what it’s all about.”

Morris asserted that equal rights was a “sham” because it’s “equal immorality” and that authorities should take the body of the suspected shooter, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, “and string him up in public and set his body on fire and leave it out there to let the birds pick his bones.”

“We’re going to see more of this,” he continued. “Because notice, the first thing in America we start yelling about is gun control is gun control. Have you noticed that? Gun control. No one’s even thought about the fact that these shootings only happened at places where guns are banned. Have you noticed that? They have never had a mass shooting at a gun show, where you can find over a thousand loaded guns at one time.”

“Why do you still send your kids to the governmental schools?” the pastor asked the congregation. “What’s behind this shooting that we saw on Dec. 14 in Newtown, Connecticut and the other one’s like it? What’s going on. Well, number one, deception… I got news for you, when you kicked God out of schools, you’re going to be judged for that.”

Morris insisted that “humanism” in schools taught Lanza that he was God and “he can just go blow away anybody he wants.”

“When I got in high school, man, I started learning all this kingdom, phylum stuff, all this junk about evolution,” he recalled. “And I want to tell you what evolution teaches — here’s the bottom line — that you’re an animal. That’s what it teaches. So, you’re an animal, you can act like an animal. Amen.”

“So, here you are, you’re an animal and you’re a god! So, what are we going to teach you about in school? Well, we can teach you about sex, we can teach you how to rebel to you parents, we can teach you how to be a homo! But we’re definitely not going to teach you about the word of God! Amen.”

He added: “They think homeschoolers are a bunch of crazies, man. But I’m going to tell you something, I’ve never seen a police officer or a medal detector at a home school. Never. Amen. Now, there’s plenty of guns at my home school. Amen. I guarantee you we’re not going to have a mass shooting at any of the schools that are represented in this building today. I guarantee you, if there is a shooting, it won’t last very long. Amen.”

“I guarantee you there’s at least six or seven guns in this place right now. Amen.”

Morris confirmed to Raw Story on Monday that he had preached the sermon uploaded to SermonAudio.com but declined to answer any additional questions.

It gets paid to say ridiculous things- those things keep people talking; are an audience draw, which means more $$$. It's all about the $$$.

MH does have a great smile.

funny how you have these so called 'good' people saying basically that this mass shooting happened because god isnt pushed in schools (they can perfume it up all they want - it is what it is) and then you have people like the WBC (who these 'good' people wouldnt dare want to be associated with) who are basically saying the same thing.  but those 'good' people dont see how similar to the WBC they really are.... both people saying that god allowed this slaughter of 20 children, 7 adults, and a suicide, as well as the devastating trauma to the survivors..both the ones at the school at the ones left in mourning all in order to let us know he does not approve of us not forcing our children to worship him in public school.. during public school hours.
sickening sickening sickening for sure.

that's what I said in another thread. The only difference between the fun dies blaming the attack on a lack of religion in schools and those Westboro cunts is the fact that they don't protest funerals yet

Most of the time I don't. However, they seem to be coming out of the woodwork.
