Fragment #2

I can see how my new resolution could rapidly turn ugly.

Today’s shooting in Newtown, CT, is already prompting the usual handwringing, and I for one am sick of it. If I were President Obama, I would call the usual idiots from the NRA to the White House and tell them in no uncertain terms: “No more dead children. You write the laws to make sure that happens, or I will. Your choice.”

But I digress.

Mike Huckabee, who often plays a sane person on Fox News, took a stance on the tragedy today. It’s pretty clear, he says, that the problem is that we’ve taken God out of the schools. “We don’t have a crime problem, a gun problem or even a violence problem. What we have is a sin problem,” he intones.

Let me get this straight—and I want it noted that I deserve full credit for not using the full range of expletives and naughty words at my command—am I to understand that because this nation renders unto God/Caesar what is theirs, that God thinks it’s appropriate to send a crazy person to take a gun and kill children?

Does anyone else have a problem with this?

update: Jesus.
