Mike Huckabee Blames Sandy Hook Shooting On Absence of God in Schools

The separation of church and state led to the forfeit of God’s grace, according to former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. Friday’s massacre in Newtown, Conn. came as no shock to the Republican pundit and politician; it was simply the result of America having “systematically removed God” from public schools. The rise in violent crime and gun violence specifically isn’t the result of failing weapons laws and mental health care; it is the product of a spiritually shallow culture and sin, says Huckabee.

“We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools,” Huckabee said during a Fox News segment. “Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?”

No motive has been determined in the shooting spree at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Adam Lanza, 20, reportedly suffered from a personality disorder and was able to acquire three weapons to carry out the massacre of 20 children and six adults. Those weapons were purchased legally by Nancy Lanza, the killer’s mother, who was also found shot to death in her home. Huckabee’s refusual to acknowledge gun control issues were apparent after July’s shooting in Aurora, Colo.

“We don’t have a crime problem, a gun problem or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem,” Huckabee said after James Holmes shot and injured 70 people in a crowded movie theater. “And since we’ve ordered God out of our schools, and communities, the military and public conversations, you know we really shouldn’t act so surprised … when all hell breaks loose.”

If America’s culture is one that revels in sin, politicians like Huckabee should be the first to step forward with laws to curb degenerate behavior. Blaming the absence of God or calling upon him to save us from each other is no substitute for action.

    Our own FBC church pastor has been preaching sermons from the Holy Bible on angels and demons for several weeks. I wasn't surprised by the reality of demonic possession and heavenly assistance from angels but what did surprise me is the power of the saints of God to subdue them. The reason why I'm surprised is because the Hollywood narrative always shows prayer as a rather passive, impotent and utterly ineffective response to spiritual warfare. I watch too much Hollywood-fare!

    It's ridiculous of any Christian to fail to recognize the spiritual warfare that is comprised of two distinct armies: God's kingdom and Satan's reign on this earth. I get the impression that the Conneticut Governor referred to "evil visiting the town" as if evil was some abstract concept. It is also presumptuous to believe that evil was "visiting" precisely because we must look to our own sins and let the light of Christ show us what is required to confess our own hatred. The evil, that has manifested itself, time and time again, through the action of these break-out acts of violence are connected to the demonic spirit of murder. That demon is no abstract concept. Demonic possession is real and it happens to be the same murdering spirit that hates God, hates Christ Jesus and any creation made in the image of God. The good news is that the effectual and fervrent prayers of a righteous man availeth much, according to the book of James. Doubtless, Governor Mike Huckabee has prayed, just as many Christ-followers are praying to Christ Jesus, since the news of more horrifical spiritual warfare, instigated by that murdering demon, who has been murdering since Cain. Do not fail to recognize the spiritual warfare.
