Heartless ‘Religious’ Bastards of the Day: Mike Huckabee and Bryan Fischer

The sick spin from the religious right
Crime • Views: 28,835

We knew this would happen, didn’t we? Here are probably the two most despicable right wing reactions so far to the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

First, Mike Huckabee on Fox News (of course), saying that we shouldn’t be surprised that “schools become a place of carnage” when we have “systematically removed God from our schools.”

HUCKABEE: Well, you know, it’s an interesting thing. 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? Because we’ve made it a place where we don’t want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability - that we’re not just going to have be accountable to the police if they catch us, but one day we stand before, you know, a holy God in judgment. If we don’t believe that, then we don’t fear that. And so I sometimes, when people say, why did God let it happen. You know, God wasn’t armed. He didn’t go to the school. But God will be there in the form of a lot people with hugs and with therapy and awhole lot of ways in which he will be involved in the aftermath. Maybe we ought to let him in on the front end and we wouldn’t have to call him to show up it’s all said and done at the back end.

The ever-execrable Bryan Fischer echoes this theme, saying God could have protected the children in Newtown, but “God is not going to go where he’s not wanted,” because God is a “gentleman.”
