WND publisher Farah joins the 'more Sandy Hooks are coming to godless America' parade

by Jeremy Hooper

The vehemently anti-LGBT Joseph Farah joins Bryan Fischer, Mike Huckabee, and James Dobson (for now) in telling America that it didn't pray hard enough to stop Sandy Hook:

Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court decisions that removed prayer from the public schools of America. Just look what has happened since. It’s not that God is exacting punishment on America as a result. He is giving America over to the desires of its wicked heart.

We are reaping the seeds of the whirlwind we ourselves planted.

It’s not that America’s highest court chose neutrality with respect to religion, as Justice Potter Stewart, the lone dissent on one of those key cases wrote. It’s that the court chose “the establishment of a religion of secularism.”

Secularism is indeed a religion. It places its faith in the hearts of men, rather than in the heart of a loving God who wrote the highest laws, those that guide the universe and offer the only path to salvation and eternal life as well as blessings in this one.

No amount of gun control can save us from ourselves. In fact, it can only quicken the judgment that is already upon us.
FULL PIECE: EXPECT MORE SANDY HOOKS, NOT FEWER [WND]

Um, not to be all literal or anything, but wouldn't a theoretical elimination of all guns (or bullets) absolutely prevent the same from happening? I mean, I know it's not going to happen and all, because (a) our national cache is stocked with hundreds of years of firearms; and (b) fried chicken sandwiches, hetero-only marriages, and bullets are sacrosanct here in the U.S. But if we're playing Farah's "amount of gun control" game and we're talking specifically about an incident of gun violence, doesn't logic demand we explore the gun control taken to its uber-rigid end? And to that end, wouldn't at-school gunplay be an eensy bit difficult?

I mean, I know Farah would surely say that God would be so mad at us for eliminating these man-made, phallic-shaped life-robbers that he would invent new ways to scare the sh*t out of us and rob our families of peace (or at least allow it to happen). But I'm just saying—in the logical world, isn't it kind of hard to argue that the fullest amount of gun control would, in fact, stop incidents of gun violence? Isn't that kind of a non-debate?
