Comment on Columbine High shootings
How can we blame it all on guns?
For the life of me, I can't understand what could have gone wrong in Littleton, CO. If only the parents had kept their children away from the guns, we wouldn't have had such a tragedy. Yeah, it must have been the guns.
It couldn't have been because half our children are being raised in broken homes.
It couldn't have been because our children get to spend an average of 30 seconds in meaningful conversation with their parents each day. After all, we give our children quality time.
It couldn't have been because we treat our children as pets and our pets as children.
It couldn't have been because we place our children in day care centers
where they learn their socialization skills among their peers under the law
of the jungle while employees who have no vested interest in the children
look on and make sure that no blood is spilled.
It couldn't have been because we allow our children to watch, on the
average, seven hours of television a day filled with the glorification of
sex and violence that isn't fit for adult consumption.
It couldn't have been because we allow our children to enter into virtual
worlds in which, to win the game, one must kill as many opponents as
possible in the most sadistic way possible.
It couldn't have been because we have sterilized and contracepted our
families down to sizes so small that the children we do have are so spoiled
with material things that they come to equate the receiving of the material
It couldn't have been because our children, who historically have been seen
as a blessing from God, are now being viewed as either a mistake created
when contraception fails or inconveniences that parents try to raise in
their spare time.
It couldn't have ! been because we give two-year prison sentences to
teenagers who kill their newborns.
It couldn't have been because our school systems teach the children that
they are nothing but glorified apes who have evolutionized out of some
primordial soup of mud by teaching evolution as fact and by handing out
condoms as if they were candy.
It couldn't have been because we teach our children that there are no laws
of morality that transcend us, that everything is relative and that actions
don't have consequences. What the heck, the president gets away with it.
Nah, it must have been the guns.
