Why all the Evil?December 21, 2012 has come and gone and we’re all still here. No black comet, no planet Nibiru, no massive solar flare, no zombies, no catastrophic earthquake and no space aliens. Now, can we all just get over that artificially created end of the world hype and focus on the real problems our society is facing?
Just as the media corralled a large part of society’s mindset into the phony Mayan end of the world scenario, it is now working in overdrive to convince the American people to just give up their rights to self defense and we will all live in a blissful utopia surrounded by peace and love.
They, under the guidance of the Soviet psychopolitical operator-in-chief, Barack Hussein-Obama (a/k/a Barry Soetero, the CIA agent), are using the tragedy of the recent Newtown, Connecticut school shootings to justify disarming the American people. The only thing that will do is allow the criminals who now control our government to steal more of our money, shove their hands deeper in our pants in a phony ‘war on drugs’, and confiscate more of our property on behalf of the counterfeiting ring that has taken over our entire banking system—and all of that without worrying about us being able to defend ourselves, our family and our property from them and their ilk.
So what is the solution to all this violence? I can assure you it’s not in eliminating the tools. For example, in China a psychotic individual stormed through a school there and slashed 23 of his victims with a knife. When it comes to violence against our fellow man, where there’s a will, there’s a way and nobody can pass a law to make everybody love each other, or guarantee everybody is safe. Also, in Chicago, a city with some of the toughest anti-gun laws in the country, 62 school aged children were shot dead this year. I was told gun restriction made us all safe. Where are all the alligator tears from Obama for those dead youth? Oh, he’s too busy authorizing the CIA to kill thousands of innocent children in the Mid-East with remote controlled drone aircraft bombs in the government’s contrived “war on terror.” I think a guy who is responsible for killing thousands of children overseas is the least qualified individual to determine ways to keep our children safe here in the U.S.
Rather than focusing on the tools of violence, let’s look it some possible causes for the violence to begin with and deal with those issues, instead, because being disarmed in a world full of criminals—both in and out of government—is not a place you really want to be.
In 1963, Madalyn Murray O’Hair won the landmark lawsuit filed on behalf of her son in the U.S. Supreme Court that effectively banned prayer and Bible reading in all public schools in the U.S. In a statement she wrote to accompany her petition to the high court, Ms. O’Hair wrote,
“An atheist loves his fellow man instead of a God. An atheist believes heaven is something for which we should work here on earth for all men together to enjoy...An atheist believes that only in a knowledge of himself and his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help him in a life of fulfillment...He believes that we cannot rely on God, channel action into prayer, or hope for an end of troubles in a hereafter, that we are our brother’s keeper, we are the keepers of our own lives, that we are responsible persons, that the job is here and the time is now.”
The Supreme Court ultimately sided with O’Hair and as a result turned our nation’s public school system into a literal training ground for the atheist religion.
So, how has that atheism worked out? Ms. O’Hair was certainly no saint. According to her son’s biography, My Life Without God, William Murray (who ultimately accepted Christ as his Savior) described his mother as a life-long child abusing drunk who thought she was smarter than everybody else and had no kind words to say about anybody. As a Marxist, she attempted to defect to the Soviet Union (they refused her admittance because she couldn’t hold a job for more than a month or so at a time) and she even tried to kill her own father with a knife in an argument over his Christian beliefs. So, there’s your founding mother of atheism’s public school prayer ban. What a role model. So, is it really surprising that we now have school shootings and mass murder appearing in the U.S.? You do reap what you sow.
Later on, the Supreme Court ruled it was legal to kill babies in their mothers’ wombs. Abortion, formerly a crime, was now made vogue and stylish. Is the Supreme Court working against us? The progressives gloated as their program of systematic eugenics gained a stronghold in the U.S. and an entire class of people became convinced murder was okay, just so long as it happens in a place where it can’t be seen. We now kill around 4,000 babies a day in the U.S. and nobody blinks an eye.
Giving the voters of several states—Maine being one of them—the right to decide on the status of the sexually deviant practice of same-sex marriage further elucidates how messed up our society has become with the majority of voters in those states forcing their peers to accept as legal what was formerly a criminal act.
Our society also authorizes theft from his fellow man by way of confiscatory taxation to take from the producers and give to the non-producers. Oh, yes we are a free, moral and virtuous society. Adopting Ms. O’Hair’s maxim of atheism has really brought us a long way toward establishing “heaven on earth for all men together to enjoy.”
Because society today has been raised in a setting that does not acknowledge a Divine Creator who is the ruler of the universe, or His laws governing human behavior, they have decided to make up their own rules—a fundamental tenet of atheism. However, when man makes his own rules governing his behavior, he ends up in a horribly sad state of disrepair and his society ultimately crumbles into the cesspool of violence and depravity we are now witnessing. The U.S. has chosen to throw God out, so he left. He’s not going to force this country to love Him, or follow Him.
For those who ask the rhetorical question, “why would God allow the killing of the 27 people in Newtown?” I would suggest asking, instead, a much more relevant question, “Why hasn’t God caused all of us to be killed?”
