Mark 10:14 Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God....16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
There is no understanding this tragedy. God, be with them. Reveal yourself as you see fit. Be with America whose heart is broken and cannot grieve fully but puts politics first. Help us stop being angry and help our hearts to love.

God be with the families, and be with all of us. Amen.

Have a blessed Sunday, everyone. Z

The most powerful weapon in the history of man is the-

"Power Of Suggestion", now in these times, with the help of Psychologist Drugs.

That is the results of Columbine.
Attack the Libs power and money source and this is what happens---retaliation.
Columbine was right after the Parental Rights Notifications Bill passed in Texas.
Now, after the Right To Work Bill passed in Mich.
If you have the time to research the other school shootings were related time wise to other Bills being purposed or Passed.

I posted this a while back in 2009 and now there are several hits today for

this post.

And at the end of the post is a--> link<-- to the Research.

II Peter; 10:But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.

They hate our Government and want to turn it into Socialism/Communism.

II Peter; 14; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: a heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children.

Worshiping Mother Earth/gaea/athena/venus.
They want to take from the rich, anyone who makes more than $50k a year.
And the children - Abortion,
School Shootings.

Z,
Today is a sad Sunday -- even for those of us who don't know anyone in Newtown, Connecticut.

I heard on my local morning news that many church congregations in the D.C. area will hear from the pulpit sermons about gun violence and the necessity to "do something" about it. In my view, such sermons are way off base. This is the time to pray for the bereaved in Newtown and spiritual matters, particularly how the Lord does minister to the grieving.

I do have to wonder if the Lanza family followed any particular faith at all. Has anyone heard about that matter? I have heard that Nancy Lanza was a Doomsday Prepper.

And Lord, I also pray that the media will stop milking the grief and allow a moment of peace for the grieving.

Rita said...

So true Ed. I'm lad at least they have provided one state trooper for each family to keep the media vultures away.

Well said, Z.

Z said...

They Say/We Say...are you 'saying' that this and other mass killings were done as a result of the bills the Right doesn't like?
I'll look at your post when I get home from church. Thanks.

AOW...she might have been one; home schooling and collecting guns. But the boy had problems and that's probably why she was home schooling and her husband was gone so maybe she didn't like being vulnerable at home?
And yes, this tragedy will be one the Obama folks will not let go by without squeezing all they can from it...

We will be learning names and seeing pictures of the dead through the Christmas season. I grieve for us all.

And, the town is taking down Christmas decorations because they feel it's not proper to celebrate..........maybe not proper to celebrate with secular Christmas stuff, but if this isn't a time to leave God in the town square, I don't know when the time is right. Of course, a creche would be "too Christian" for most 'enlightened progressive' towns, so there probably are no non-secular Christmas decorations to rely on for strength and solace....just when they need it the most.

Z - Yes, God be with all of us but especially with the ones whose lives have been forever changed by the shooting tragedy. This is something that cannot be explained or understood - but can only be dealt with through prayer.

Bless you today - Z.

A rational person is not capable to wrap their mind around this horrific event.

The real question we should be asking is why does our mental health system keep failing us?

This is not a gun issue, it is a mental health issue.

Real People to pray for...not political solutions or political affiliations...Pray for them today.

Impertinent said...

But I must say this:

Liberals...you own this. It belongs to all of you who have dismissed self protection and responsibility.

Liberals have the hubris of turning away from God, then wonder why bad things happen.

They really think that THEY are the Alpha and the Omega, not Him.

They think they can do whatever they please without consequences.

They’re sorely mistaken. It must really tick them off that so many are once again turning to Him for comfort in the face of this tragedy, not their own FAKE “Lord and Savior”.

Z said...

Imp, thanks for listing the names....it's horrific but they deserve to have their names read and remembered.

Odd there isn't a muslim sounding name there but a muslim cleric was at the prayer service tonight. Really odd. I'd have thought that, as usual, only clergy representing the dead's families would speak.
By the way, Imp; I just wrote tomorrow's post and it's pretty much what you're saying here.

Chuck...well said.

And just how do you honor God,big mouth?

Guns?

Hating Muslims?

Your simpleton answers to difficult questions.

Yeah, it's all the fault of everyone who doesn't accept your pathetic dogma.

Z said...

WAIT! Honoring God means hating Muslims? REALLY? HOW SO, BIG MOUTH?

Honoring God with guns? REALLY?

Ducky, grow UP. Get control of yourself and stop being so single minded that you simply won't listen.

Z said...

Poor Obama..he kept telling families who lost children "you are not alone... you are not alone."

Yes, Mr. Obama, they are ALONE. YOUR caring a bit about their child does not give them company. THEY HAVE LOST THEIR LITTLE CHILD. They are ALONE in their grief no matter what you say.

It was a discouraging speech....they don't need to hear how they're an example of courage..many are probably on Lexapro or something at this point just to cope with the shock; they LOST THEIR CHILD and when they close the door tonight and go inside, they ARE ALONE. When they enter their child's bedroom tonight and sit on his or her bed, they'll be ALONE.

I felt terrible about how they felt hearing YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Lovely to know the world's grieving, but trust me; they ARE alone.

"And just how do you honor God,big mouth?".."


By exposing what frothing at the mouth, lunatic, despicable POS you really are?

I love pissing you assholes off to no end...I love it when you stamp your feet and show what weeny, insignificant, infantile shits you really are. I love it when I make you lose it and show all of us here what frauds you really are.

I love throwing God and prayer back at you cause we all know it's like Kryptonite to you animals...you..OH so tolerant...liars and frauds...did I say FRAUDS again?

And I love it more when a supposed "elitist, educated, sophisticated" fraud like you....proves what a Neanderthal you really are. I don't give a rats ass what films you like, what books you read, what operas you listen to...in all of your ilk...you're still angry, hateful bottom feeders.


Merry Christmas duk..and I hope you trip over a Nativity Scene....and....????

You make my day...twit.

To honor this post, I only want to ask that God, with His Son, Jesus Christ, be with all of the families. For now, and in the days to come.

We all grieve for the loss of those precious lives, and for their families whose lives will never be the same, again.

It is sad that this tragedy will be milked for every ounce of potential for stamping out the right to own, and bear arms in this country.

It's even sadder that they seem not to realize that the problem, too often, is not gun ownership, but mental illness which is now rampant, and which is largely not addressed, and not treated as the problem that it really is.

When guns fall into the hands of the mentally ill, tragedy happens.

Rather than discussing gun control, we should be having discussions about mental illness, how to identify it, how to treat it, and assuring that all who need help will get all the help they need.

In many cases, it is virtually impossible for some families to obtain help for their children, especially if they are young adults, until something horrible happens to a member of the family, or someone else.

In such instances, it is too little, too late.

There is too much stigma attached to mental illness, which may prevent some from seeking the help needed for their family member.

Concerning the parent of the individual involved in the Connecticut shootings, I'm wondering why she would have kept weapons in the home, knowing that her son was so unstable?

Perhaps, one reason was for her own protection from him, but that wouldn't account for the number of guns in her possession.

It is easy to blame the parents of these individuals, after the fact, but who really knows the truth in such cases?

Keeping guns out of the hands of responsible people who want them for protection will never keep them out of the hands of those whom they need the protection from...they will have them, one way, or another.

Perhaps, if one of the adults at that school had had access to one, things would have turned out differently.

We'll never know that for sure, but we do know that all the words of comfort in the world will not bring them back.

And any comfort the parents receive will be from their own source of spiritual strength, and not from empty platitudes.

I know some of the stuff I write should not be put in writing-but-It needs to be out in the social water cooler sessions.
But the shock value is maybe to much for the average joe to take in. I have that problem with face to face talks, as well as commenting on blogs.
Some are so mixed up with emotions that they respond with total opposite account of what I wrote.
I know they did not intend to spin what I said 180 degrees.
And, one thing I always tell my friends is that these ill crude vile wanna-be RULERS do is make this stuff so farfetched and bazaar that If there are some who would try and open up the curtain that many just would not believe this could be going on.
On the radio, especially the local one around here, the Host keeps saying that it cannot be because No One Inside Washington Beltway can keep a secrete.
I say fuwee. They are bound to secrecy, and the Higher Ups in The Lodge Keep The Worst Stuff from the lower degrees even inside their own Lodge.

Why does Duck keep talking about the Guns? Is he a plant for these ruthless control freaks, that are doing these ill gotten gains in the Lefts Agenda, to dismantle the Constitution.
DucK-Are You One of Them Fabians
who swell with Pride that this stuff is beating down the American Peoples Psyche?

They Say/We Say said...

You still don't believe me?
Remember that Al Gores WIFE, the same time as he was running for the Presidency, was pushing the Women in this country to jump on the Prozac train? The TV adds with a woman walking on the beach with the waves rolling gently onto the sand, saying, Come Home. These idiots wanted women to become the Stepfferd Wives!
Remember Clinton said after the Oklahoma disaster, standing in front of the batter building-"we may have to take a minor departure from or Civil Liberties"? There goes that Power of Suggestion thing. Now this President will have less resistance. Just think for a minute, if all the women were on Prozac, we men would not a any peace in our homes until we turned in all our guns!

Z,
I watched and listened to Obama's speech last night in Newtown.

His words "You are not alone" struck me as useless -- and likely hurtful.

In my view, Obama would have done better by reading Scripture and saying words such as "I can't begin to imagine what you're feeling right now. But please know that all across America, so many are lifting you up in prayer."

I wish that Obama hadn't said " I will use whatever power this office holds...."

I did like the words "unconscionable evil." But how did those words strike Ryan Lanza and Mr. Lanza? So much about Adam Lanza and the family isn't yet known! Just this morning, I read the following:

...Mrs Lanza had spoken of her fears less than a week before the attack that she was “losing” her son. “She said it was getting worse. She was having trouble reaching him,” said a friend of Mrs Lanza...

Z said...

They Say/ I believe you; trust me.
I wish I didn't !!


AOW...YOU felt that way, too? I'm relieved because I asked myself what president would say YOU ARE NOT ALONE when they ARE? Then I thought I was being unreasonably hard on the jerk because it's so tough to know what TO say.
But YOU ARE NOT ALONE struck me as utterly cruel because "No, Mr. President, we ARE alone...we are going home without our baby tonight"

And yes, since Mr. Z died and I had well meaning people say THE most amazing things to me, I have learned (I hope)...and just saying you're praying for someone, wishing them peace and some kind of comfort...that's ENOUGH. They ARE alone. The mothers who carried those children in their wombs are suddenly SO ALONE.

I can't bear to think about it.

Thanks for this comment, AOW.
