Knowing me and how I can’t articulate what I want to say very well, I’m going to come across as an uncaring _____ (you fill in the blank).
Friday, December 14, was a real wake-up call for our nation. Twenty beautiful children were slaughtered, and for what reason?
So we can have the freedom to buy semi-automatic rifles, which are designed for war, not hunting? I admit that one of those rifles was on my wish list for coyotes. Not anymore.
So we can have the freedom to watch movies so graphic we become totally desensitized to the gore that must have taken place in that school?
So we can have the freedom to play video games that will have the same effect on us?
Yet we don’t even think of the dozens (more than 20) of babies that are killed each day, right here in Minnesota, because we call it “choice.” Isn’t that a nice word, choice? So squeaky clean.
God forgive us. We need to get back into our Bibles and read what God has to say to us. Believe me, God’s word is not nearly as scary as what our nation is becoming (in the name of freedom).
