Huckabee To Fox: ‘Should We Be Surprised’ About School Carnage When We’ve ‘Removed God From Schools’?
 Part of channel(s): Connecticut School Shooting (current event)

by Andrew Kirell
5:21 pm, December 14th, 2012
Appearing on Fox News’ Your World this afternoon to discuss the tragic massacre in Newtown, Conn., former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
said that we shouldn’t be surprised that schools have become a place of
carnage after Americans have rejected teaching about life and
responsibility by “removing God from our schools.”
Host Neil Cavuto,
trying to make sense of the horrific events that have transpired, asked
the religious commentator what he believes many will now wonder: “How
could God let this happen?”
“It’s an interesting thing,” Huckabee said. “We ask why there’s
violence in our schools but we’ve systematically removed God from our
schools. Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of
carnage? Because we’ve made it a place where we do not want to talk
about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability. That
we’re not just going to have to be accountable to the police, if they
catch us, but we stand one day before a holy God in judgment.”
He continued: “If we don’t believe that, then we don’t fear that.
When people say, ‘Why did god let it happen?’ You know, God wasn’t
armed. He didn’t go to the school. But God will be there in the form of a
lot people with hugs and therapy and a lot of ways in which he will be
involved in the aftermath.”
“Maybe we ought to let him in on the front end and we would not have
to call him to show up when it’s all said and done at the back end,” he
concluded.

  • So in other words, God is an egomaniacal douchebag who will kill your children if you don't praise him.

    Thanks for clearing that up, Mike.

      You have to blame the school for taking god away to stay away from the gun topic.

    • @CardCarryingCardCarrier No, he won't kill your children because instead of believeing in Satan like most killers do, people will believe in him. If you are an atheist then you you believe in atheistic materialism - a sure way to destruction of the society
      People don't believe in God because they are punks and lazy evil bastards, not because he "doesn't exist" - the father of Quantum Mechanics, mister Max Planck was a Believer, so was Isaac Newton and even Einstein More..

      And never did I indicate that this was because the US is a christian nation. What I indicated is that religion, or lack thereof, is not a factor. (as the numbers will attest to)

Because it hardly ever happens here c) it was last year d) again, I didn't say it never happens other places, but that the frequency in the us is deeply disturbing.

  • The 2nd Amendment (right to have guns) what put in place because our founding fathers thought people needed them in case our gov't got out of hand. Well, I think it's safe to say that not many Americans stress about F-16's doing a bombing run on their city. It's time to come to terms with the fact that this part of the constitution is very outdated.

  • The ignorance of this blubbering idiot never ceases to amaze me. He has actually convinced himself that God hated us so much for taking him out of public schools, that he let 20 children get murdered, but he was "there in the form of hugs during the aftermath."

      But at the same time, you Americans elected him a State Govenor..... that's the scary bit.
      Its not what he said, its that the majority of the people in Arkansas like him and elected him to power.

      And FOX News give him space! - well, they do love a loony!
