Many of the children in foster care were taken away from bad parents. Do we kill children before they're born just in case the parents turn out to be bad parents?
Trying to adopt newborns has become a bureaucratic and legal nightmare. The law also doesn't do enough to protect them from having their adopted child taken away by the biological mother sometimes years later.
Finding women who are willing to put their child up for adoption instead of getting an abortion has become more difficult.
Adoption counseling isn't what Planned Parenthood is known for. Abortions are the profit makers.
"we" don't do anything, the woman decides if she is going to bear that child. Period. Get it in your sick skull. She decides. Not you, not a politician, not a preacher. She does. And, it's not your business.
On the other hand, I don't agree with the open adoption laws, I feel if you adopt a child, then it is yours. No changing minds of birth parents, you're not babysitting while the birth mother has time to change her mind. It's not fair to the parents or the child.
You give up your child, then, it's over. You are no longer the parent. I think it's better that way.
You last sentence is your usual nonsense.

Time to let some of them die for their beliefs. That will quiet the rest of the make believe tough guys.
I'm thinking it's time for anyone who mouths the stupidity 'i have a gun to protect me from the government' to be rounded up and placed in reeducation camps, to teach them not to be traitors to their nation, and make sure the talk of sedition is silenced once and for all.

Whether our own children have long ago moved on, if we live in a bustling city or on a quiet country lane, our days are somehow marked by children setting out for school. The primary school I know best and whose girls and boys I recall so vividly today happen to live in Nepal.

The school sits on the edge of Kathmandu city near Balaju bridge, off noisy Nayaa Bazaar. A poor neighborhood by some standards perhaps, but it’s the most important place to the 400 children who have begun their learning here.All across the globe the events in USA last week make those sounds more precious today. As we connect them, maybe grieving Americans can better understand the silence of little Palestinian and Pakistani and Iraqi corpses.

In the year since Australia's gun ban went into effect: Homicides up 3.2%, assaults up 8.6%, and armed robberies are up 44%. In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300%.

You see the law abiding citizens turned in their guns. The criminals did not.

I see the number one promoter of Gun Violence “Hollywood” is out doing a PR stunt trying to minimize their roll in this CT tragedy!! This is the same industry that got on the Anti-Smoking bandwagon but there still…. Lighting Up!! What’s the Liberal Motto “Do as I Say Not as I Do?”
That is what defines the left! After all, Al Gore lives in a mansion with a carbon footprint of several homes. It's so hypocritical. Democrats are so conflicted.

Tennessee pastor: Mass shootings because schools teach evolution and ‘how to be a homo’
(this guy has such a way with words, so inspiring)
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 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.”
Raw Story ( http://s.tt/1xbBN )
Mike Huckabee: "We have systematically removed God from our schools."

The former governor of Arkansas, Republican hopeful for president, and Fox News host says we've got no reason to be surprised when adult gunmen shoot up educational establishments.

"We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools," Huckabee said on Fox News, discussing the murder spree that took the lives of 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, CT that morning. "Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"

I don't doubt the governor's sincerity, but among other things, he might want to think about the declining rate of school violence. According to data compiled by the National Center for Education Statistics, schools have been getting safer and less violent at least over the past couple of decades - despite what Huckabee would doubtless consider a period of rising godlessness. During the school year of 1992-93, for instance, the number of on-location murders of students and staff at K-12 public schools was 47 (out of population of millions). In 2009-2010 (the latest year for which data is listed), the number was 25. Over the same period, the rate on victimizations per 1,000 students for theft dropped from 101 to 18. For violent crimes, the rate dropped from 53 to 14. And for "serious violent" crimes, the rate dropped from 8 to 4.

I do find it ironic that hallelujah means basically a joyful expression of praise and thanksgiving to God, so not sure why people are singing it regarding the shooting in CT.
