Carnage in the schools = bad fruit

From a post by TPM online:

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee attributed the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in part to restrictions on school prayer and religious materials in the classroom.

"We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools," Huckabee said on Fox News. "Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage?"


Well! We seldom discuss God in the supermarket. That would explain why my bananas have brown spots all over them.

    Regardless of one's religious beliefs, that is just a terrible thing to say. I had a former minister as a kid who always used to say that if you needed to have your religion (whatever that might be) reinforced by the government, that said more about your own lack of faith than anything else.

    And I can't stand it when people on any side of the aisle use tragedies to score points for their own political views.

    those aren't bananas. They are your hands.
    Is that as clever as what you said, sir?

    When the demons in your head tell you violence is good, and the people you are supposed to be looking up to are druggies, murderers and liars, and you have been getting pills instead of help, maybe it would be good to have something to cleave to, some direction or the concept of good that is greater than yourself that you can grab in your darkness.
    Or maybe you could try socialism. Unfortunately, as the joke goes, once you have socialism, you run out of bannanas.
