Roy Moore: Children Died At Sandy Hook Because People Didn't Pray Hard Enough

via Hartford Courant:

Roy Moore, an Alabama Republican who won the party’s nomination in a special election to fill Jeff SessionsSenate seat, last month blamed the Sandy Hook shooting on a lack of respect for “the law of God.”

“You wonder why we’re having problems? Newtown, Connecticut? All across our country, with killings, stealing, committing adultery? Because we’ve forgotten the law of God,” Moore said at an Aug. 24 event defending religious liberties.

CNN was first to report on the footage of the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court addressing a group at an Alabama church.

"You wonder why we're having shootings, and killings here in 2017? Because we've asked for it," Moore said. "We've taken God out of everything. We've taken prayer out of school, we've taken prayer out of council meetings."

May this poor man be softly struck by God's love for us all! I have stopped trying to appear more intelligent than all people who believe in and propagate their religion of hate and fear. (I think I just did it again!) Just send all the love and light you can muster!

Oy vey iz mir! The children murdered at Sandy Hook died because a stupid mother let her crazy son get his hands on the firearms best suited to carrying out mass shooting. The Very Christian Branch Davidians at Waco died because they killed some ATF officers who had come to take away their weapons and some dummy did not think the pyrotechnic tear gas shells they fired into the compound would burn the place down.

I had always thought that Christians believed in a loving God. Which one is it? When it is about Trump he shows his love but when children are at school, just being children, he is an angry God. Angry about what? If he is angry about abortion then why not strike the abortion doctors down? If he is angry about gays why not smite them. Did he let Hitler kill 6 million Jews because he was angry about Naziism? God does indeed work in mysterious ways.

I'm all-powerful. I'm angry. I think I'll kill some children. That kinda makes God an asshole.

If that isn't the dumbest thing. Evil lurks in the heart of men and that is what happened at Sandy Hook and everywhere else that something of that nature happened. The person who killed those children had no God in him anywhere.

According to this asshole, God murdered little children because he is angry?!!! If that is the sickest delusion imaginable. Why didn't God smite YOU, Loser Moore.

This shithole shouldn't even be allowed in the Senate. He flagrantly disobeyed the law of the land because it didn't fit with his bigoted, hateful views. Listening to him is like listening to Hitler's son if had one.
