First off. To the families, friends, and loved ones of those killed in the Umpqua Community College shooting yesterday, the prayers and thoughts of the Handbook go out to you.
As I said about the shooting in Lafayette, LA, nothing prepares you for the news that something like this has happened. To those that knew people killed or injured the pain and anger is something that I am not sure people ever truly get over. A part of someone’s life has been taken by a psycho for no damn reason.
Although in this case it appears there was a reason. One of the most disgusting horrible reasons we have ever seen. The systemic eradication of those who profess a love of Jesus Christ and consider themselves Christians.
Imagine that, being asked to stand and profess your religion. I imagine the first one possibly thought by admitting to being a Christian maybe they were going to be left alone, it turned out to be the exact opposite. Now each person after has to make a choice. Admit their love of Christ and die, or deny him only to be injured, but still live since those who weren’t Christian were shot in the legs.
It took all of zero seconds for this to become politicized. Instead of condemning this monstrous psychopath, the left condemns his tools. In the words of Archie Bunker, “Would it make you feel any better if they was thrown out of windows, little girl?”
Would the left make an instant push to ban windows? No. But guns are hated and reviled by anyone that wants to take away your rights. The last form of protection from tyranny is the armed populace. The left knows this. They desperately want tyranny. It’s what they dream about at night.
So they will use this. They will publicize this. Saying we have “no commonsense gun control” in this country as our crisis loving Asshat in Chief put it.
To stay away from the politics for a while would have been nice. To simply allow these families to grieve, to bury their dead, to take the time to remember them and reflect back on their lives. Instead we have sociopaths who believe in “never letting a crisis go to waste”.
Make no mistake there is a push against Christianity in this country. This is just the most violent aspect of it we have seen so far. Apparently this psycho told people in a message board he was going to do something, and was a member of an anti-religion group on a dating site. Shocking that this asshole couldn’t find a living human being to date him in the real world.
But as you notice I refuse to use his name. After all that is apparently what he wanted. So screw him.
I will leave you with this though. Maybe the families of the fallen can take some small solace in this simple bible verse.
32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
It would appear those who admitted to being a Christian have received the full support of none other than Jesus Christ himself.
May their memories never be forgotten, and their life in the ever after be eternal and glorious.
