Huckabee blames gays for the Newtown massacre

First, on Friday, mere hours after the shooting, Huckabee appeared on Fox to muse,“We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools. Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?” He added,“Maybe we ought to let [God] in on the front end and we wouldn’t have to call him to show up when it’s all said and done at the back end.”

Then, over the weekend, on his own show, he took on “the predictable left” and its “vile and vicious reaction” to his statements. He said he wasn’t merely talking about school prayer – oh, no, haters!“It’s the fact that people sue a city so we aren’t confronted with a manger scene or Christmas carol … Churches and Christian-owned businesses are told to surrender their values under the edict of government orders to provide tax-funded abortion pills.” On his Web page, he posted a version of his Fox monologue, in which he wrote,“We dismiss the notion of natural law and the notion that there are moral absolutes and seemed amazed when some kids make it their own morality to kill innocent children. We diminish and even hold in contempt the natural family of a father and mother creating and then responsibly raising the next generation and then express dismay that kids feel no real connection to their families or even the concept of a family.” He also railed about how “our kids would rather have ear buds dangling from their ears, fingers attaching to a smartphone, and face attached to a computer screen” and “we teach that God was not involved in our origins, that our very lives are biological happenstances.”

There you have it. It wasn’t a mentally ill lunatic with easy access to military grade weaponry that caused one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history. It was “abortion pills,” iPhones, evolution and homosexuals.

It’s a familiar Huckabee refrain. Last summer, after the deadly shooting in an Aurora movie theater, Huckabee went on Fox to say,“We don’t have a crime problem, a gun problem or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem. And since we’ve ordered God out of our schools, and communities, the military and public conversations, you know we really shouldn’t act so surprised … when all hell breaks loose.” This was right around the same time Huckabee was busily attempting to cleanse our great nation of the gay menace by declaring a Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day to support the chain’s stance on biblical marriage and “Godly values.”

Much like ”end times” Bible “scholar” John McTernan, who back in October declared that Hurricane Sandy was the work of the gays, Huckabee seems to honestly believe that if we could just magically make everyone heterosexual and Christian, and while we’re at it maybe do away with all the scientific evidence supporting evolution, terrible things would stop happening. He holds loving same-sex families more accountable for the violence in Connecticut than he does a broken mental-health system or the easy accessibility of guns or even Adam Lanza himself, whose name is not once mentioned in his Fox monologue.

It’s an appalling smear of a wide variety of groups, and a breathtakingly ignorant view. And it’s strikingly similar in spirit to Mitt Romney’s response, during the presidential debates, to a question on gun violence — that “to tell our kids that before they have babies, they ought to think about getting married to someone — that’s a great idea.” It suggests that somehow prayer can prevent anybody from being mentally ill, that hetero marriage cures murder, and that having a manger in the town square can stop a gunman from blasting his way into a school. It’s grotesque and hateful, even by Mike Huckabee standards. But if he’s even remotely correct that we’ve all been so great at ordering God out of American life, what in hell do we have to do to successfully exile Mike Huckabee as well?

And how sick, evil, and hateful is this:

Westboro Baptist Church Says It Will Picket Vigil For Connecticut School Shooting Victims

The Westboro Baptist Church, the controversial group known for protesting outside funerals of slain U.S. service members, announced that it will picket a vigil for the victims of Friday's Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the second-deadliest school shooting in American history.

Shirley Phelps-Roper, a spokesperson for the group and, like most members of the organization, a relative of the group's founder, Fred Phelps, announced on Twitter on Saturday the group's plan "to sing praise to God for the glory of his work in executing his judgment."

It is unclear when the group plans to protest, although a tweet from Margie Phelps implied that it would be during a vigil that will be attended by President Barack Obama on Sunday evening.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church say that America is being punished for its acceptance of gays and lesbians. In recent days, Phelps family members have sent tweets about the Connecticut shooting that have said "God sent the shooter."

Not surprisingly, the group's announcement was met with resistance online. A Change.org petition asking for Connecticut officials to prevent the group from protesting has been launched, and users of the social news and link sharing site Reddit have been discussing ways to stage a counter-protest.

A Facebook event that calls for "counter-activity" to "keep any hatred from touching" the grieving families has over 10,000 attendees, but because of a bomb threat in Newtown on Sunday, the event has been cancelled.

Anonymous, the loosely affiliated group of Internet "hacktivists," said that it had hacked the group's website and released personal information about the group's members, according to The Inquisitr.

The Southern Poverty Law Center calls the Westboro Baptist Church "arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America," while the Anti-Defamation League calls it "a small virulently homophobic, anti-Semitic hate group."

SO, what do you want to hear? That Hucklebee is correct about the family? The "Non-social" interaction? That kids today are SO socially inactive, that when they have to communicate F2F, they can't? or that all of society is about the "Me factor" and no one else matters and no matter what I do, I won't be held responsible or that I will just blame it on someone else and the liberals will believe me?

Is this what you are asking?

OK, Seenlies. Why should I answer you? I have asked you repeatedly about your god, are you ashamed of him/it? I am not ashamed of my mine. I hate no one ,not even you.....Hey, I hope you are not married. If so do you make her keep her head up in a turban? Walk six feet behind you? Bow at your command? My mistake, little boys can't marry. If and when you do, please consider this...you don't seem like spouse material. LOL!
