As I watched in horror thenews that so many innocent people had been killed in Newtown, Conn., I sat amazed as each reporter voiced such things as, "I can't imagine why this has happened in this country." Well, they should stop and think -- we, as a country, have tried to eliminate God from our lives. Prayer has been taken out of our schools, public meetings, government and just about every other facet
of our lives. I think it is about time that we beseech God to come back into the lives of our country's people.
The liberals have tried their way and it has not worked.
I don't understand how we let one atheist, Madelyn Murray O'Hare, run God and the Christians' beliefs out of our United
States. I thought majority opinion was supposed to rule.
I am also surprised that preachers and ministers -- all Christian people -- did not put up a bigger fight against O'Hare
and her crusade than they did. We must have all turned into a bunch of namby-pamby peoplepleasers instead of God-pleasers.
Shame on us.
May God watch over those who have so tragically lost loved ones. I pray that He will forgive this country for the sins its
people have committed against Him.

What now, blame liberals and non believers? Your emotions are overcoming your reason. I am a Christian and believe we need to strengthen our faith, but lets stop blaming and find answers.
You are absolutely right, Don. You mention Madalyn Murray O'Hair. Interestingly enough, I just read a an article by her son, William J. Murray, who is the chairman of the Washington, D.C.-based Religious Freedom Coalition, expressing a similar view. Read it at http://www.wnd.com/2012/12/newtown-carnage-blame-church-not-god-or-guns/
It sure would not hurt, and if you area Christian you would know it would help.
AMEN AMEN AMEN
