Some may ask how could God allow such a tragedy, especially to children. I saw someone post the following on Facebook:
Why do you allow so much violence in our schools?
Signed, A Concerned Student
Dear Concerned Student,
I'm not allowed in schools.
That pretty sums up the problem in our schools. No God -- no teachings about right or wrong, and we end up with young people who have no fear of God or of violating His commands.
Check out what Mike Huckabee had to say on the tragedy, via Fox Insider:
Mike Huckabee Responds to the Question of ‘How Could God Let This Happen?’ Following Connecticut Elementary School Attack
On Your World this afternoon, Mike Huckabee sat down with Neil Cavuto to discuss the horror that unfolded this morning in Newtown, Conn. A 20-year-old man fatally shot 20 children, six adults and himself at Sandy Hook Elementary School. He also shot his mother, a kindergarten teacher at the school, at their house before the rampage.
Cavuto pointed out that after tragedies like this, many people ask, “How could God let this happen?”
Huckabee responded by pointing out that God and references to religion have been systematically removed from so many schoolsin the United States. The former Arkansas governor said the issue of being accountable to a higher power in judgment is not discussed in public schools.
He added, “Maybe we ought to let (God) in on the front end and we wouldn’t have to call him to show up when it’s all said and done at the back end.”
