In watching the news coverage of the murders at the Sandy Hook school in Connecticut, I noted that commentator after commentator grappled to explain this horrid event by essentially saying that evil had visited that community.
This is surely true. But it is also revealing. For what is evil but a contrast to God's law? Yet it is God (and the Ten Commandments) who has been systematically driven out of American public life, especially the schools, beginning in the 1950s and accelerating ever since.
If this had not been the case, I have to believe that there would have been far few of such atrocities. If the killers believed that a quick bullet to their head did not end their responsibility for the evil they've done but just began it, perhaps that would have stayed the trigger finger of many of them.
