It Must Have Been The Guns
It Must Have Been The Guns
For the life of me, I can't understand what could have gone wrong in Littleton, Colorado. If the parents would have only kept their children away from the guns, we wouldn't have had such a tragedy. Yeah, it must have been the guns.
It couldn't have been because over half our children are being raised in broken homes.
It couldn't have been because our children get to spend on average 30 seconds in meaningful conversation with their parents each day. After all, we give our children quality time.
It couldn't have been because we treat our children as pets and our pets as children.
It couldn't have been because we place our children in daycare centers where they learn their socialization skills amongst their peers under the law of the jungle while 16 year old employees who have no vested interest in the children look on and make sure that no blood is spilled.
It couldn't have been because we allow our children to watch on average 7 hours of television a day filled with the glorification of sex and violence that isn't fit for adult consumption.
It couldn't have been because we allow our children to enter into virtual worlds in which to win the game, one must kill as many opponents as possible in the most sadistic way possible.
It couldn't have been because we have sterilized and contracepted our families down to sizes so small that the children we do have are so spoiled with the material that they come to equate the receiving of the material with love.
It couldn't have been because our children who have historically been seen as a blessing from God are now being viewed as either a mistake created when contraception fails or inconveniences that parents try to raise in their spare time.
It couldn't have been because our nation is the world leader in developing a "culture of death" in which 20 to 30 million babies have been killed by abortion.
It couldn't have been because we give 2 year prison sentences to a teenagers that kill their own newborns.
It couldn't have been because our school systems teach the children that they are nothing but glorified apes that have evolutionized out of some primordial soup of mud by teaching evolution as fact and by handing out condoms as if they were candy.
It couldn't have been because we teach our children that there are no laws of morality that transcend us, that everything is relative, and that actions don't have consequences. What the heck, the President gets away with it.
Nah, it must have been the guns.

Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it.
Unless the Lord guard the city, in vain does the guard keep vigil.
