Rick Warren: Aurora shooting the fault of evolution – National atheism | Examiner.com
Oh and whats that whole repentance thing all about ? Lets see:
If someone kills acouple dozen people in a crowded theater all they need to do is to believe jesus is god and repent to him and ask forgiveness and youre forgiven …
The mega-church pastor of the Saddleback Church, Rick Warren, took to Twitter on Friday to express his thought about the recent shooting at an Aurora, Colorado movie theater. Warren blamed the shooting on the teaching of evolution in public science classes:
“When students are taught they are no different from animals, they act like it.”
Warren who gave the invocation at President Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009 joins company with Republican Rep. Louis Gohmert. Congressman Gohmert blamed the shooting on secularism stating:
“People say… where was God in all of this? We’ve threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God’s name, they’re going to be jailed… I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.”
Gohmert’s reasoning actually reflects quite poorly on the character of his deity. According to him, God let those people die apparently because he didn’t like the U.S. Constitution. As a point of clarification, the First Amendment prevents government led prayer forced on to the people. It does not restrict high school students from praying privately at their graduation.
