The past few days I've written here about liberal pundits who have used the mass killings in Newtown, Connecticut to further their cause to ban guns in America. Now a prominent conservative figure, Mike Huckabee, has stepped forward to show that the political right is just as screwed up in their solutions to this problem as liberal democrats.
Governor Mike Huckabee announced on Fox News recently that he believes the reason why so many recent school shootings have occurred is because God has been removed from the classroom. It never ceases to amaze me how stupid political leaders on both the left and right are when it comes to realistic solutions.
Mike Huckabee will not be the last conservative Republican to step forward and suggest that it is the fault of secularism in the United States, causing of these terrible school massacres. Why some Christians continue to believe that the Lord God is vindictive is something I do not understand.
I have read the Holy Bible since I was a little boy. Certainly there are scriptures, which point to how God punishes people who are evil. However, to suggest that God has some kind of narcissistic personality and takes his vengeance out on kindergarten age children when human beings don't constantly praise him in school, is nothing less than outright blasphemy.
For the most part, I enjoy listening to what former Governor Mike Huckabee has to say. In fact, I think he is a very smart man. That said, when he and others on the extreme social conservative right refer to almighty God as some kind of self centered deity who enjoys taking out his narcissistic rage on school children - I must part company with him.
Somehow and some way the American public must find a way to distance themselves from the extreme political rhetoric on the far right and left. In the same way that liberal Democrats always look to gun control as the only answer to violence in America, conservative Republicans need to stop blaming a vindictive God for the same problem.
