Rabbi Slams Christian Right’s Reaction to Newtown as the ‘Ultimate Statement of Heresy’
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on Wednesday blasted Christian conservatives like Bryan Fischer who suggested that Americans were to blame for the tragic shooting in Newtown, Connecticut because they had abandoned God.
“The fact is that is the ultimate statement of heresy,” he said on CNN. “This is not a religious man.”
Numerous figures on the Christian right, including James Dobson and Mike Huckabee, have linked the horrific mass killing of 20 young children to issues such as prayer in school, abortion and same sex marriage. They claim these issues prove the United States no longer respects God.
You tell em Rabbi!
