AFA radio host Bryan Fischer writes:
I suggest we have mass school shootings because we don’t have enough God on our campuses and we don’t have enough guns. When tragic school shootings happen, like the one in Florida, everyone sends their “thoughts and prayers” to the families of the victims. But why don’t we pray before these shootings happen instead of waiting until somebody’s dead?
Everyone understands that prayer in school is appropriate in the wake of a tragedy like this. But if it’s appropriate after, there’s no reason it’s not appropriate before.
We have spent the last 60 years telling God to get lost from our public schools. It should come as no surprise that he’s not around when we need him. We can’t very well blame God for not coming to our aid if we fail to use the tools (prayer and the Second Amendment) He has graciously given to us.
