    First of I'm an atheist.
    I have nothing against prayer in schools, as long as it isn't mandatory.
    I have nothing against the big ten on the court house lawn.
    Not all Atheist hate Christians or Christianity please don't lump us all together.
    Hell I even said a silent prayer this morning, just in case you know.
    now is not the time to argue religion or lack there of.
    Lets think of the family's and those lost to this tragedy..
    Regards

    In a time like this we really need to first hold our love ones amd give thanks, then we must sit back and remember, God is NOT the god of this world satan is. We God does control of this world you wont see the senselessness we witnessed today.

    In reply to the original post...this is one of the things that reinforces my somewhat wishy-washy belief in a higher power..

    I don't care for that smart assed Bill Maher, but in his documentary "Religulous"..he said he's in the "I don't know what to believe" camp. What he said really rang true with me, because that's how I feel...I just don't know what to believe.

    And something like today, the Amish children slaying and all the other evil committed on the innocent, makes me believe there can't be a God..he just wouldn't let these things happen..

    I was raised in the Church of Christ by strictly religious parents and ultra-religious grandparents who didn't even believe in television (believed it to be evil)...

    My parents (in their 50's) abandoned traditional churchgoing, frustrated by the hypocrisy..

    My mother (very religious) confided in me that she was just tired of going to church on Sunday, and being told over and over how much of a sinner she was and that she needed to get on her knees and repent daily.

    She said: "How do I sin? I've been faithful to my husband, raised three children in the church, don't lie, cheat or steal? What do I need to repent every day for..?"

    I agreed with her..

    The human mind was not designed to have all the answers. The sooner one realizes this the better.

    While I can't disagree with your opinions of IndianaMatt, the biggest school mass-murder in U.S. history is still from Michigan farm country in 1927 and you can bet they had all of that stuff in school then and there.

    Breaking our hearts. Something like this(children being murdered) draws anger and emotional responses. I have to confess that with all the bad that goes on these days the I'm guilty of a calloused heart. I guess I've conditioned myself to be this way. Seeing these responses really opened my eyes and brought tears. I cant begin to imagine how the families feel.

    Another stellar example of the compassionate liberal. Way to go, Indi. I wonder if anyone would admit to actually knowing you in person. Heck, it's shameful that you're member of this forum.

    Make that 4....or 5.

    We can argue Agnosticism and Atheism vs Religion anytime.

    Now is not the time.

    I think you and your mother are kidding yourselves and your legalism has done you in. I'm so sorry for that. Perhaps you both could try again in a different place. Or most important read your Scriptures. Every day at least 7 minutes. Full Focus. After a year write me.

    Well the Westboro freaks have chimed in.

    They show up to protest and I doubt the law will be able to protect them this time around, I may even end up in prison myself over that one.

    What an ass the OP is. Puts up a thread even a moron like him has to know is going to be viewed as insensitive given the day's events, and controversial given the timing, then close to an hour later comes back with:

    "Oh brother. I'll delete this before someone has a baby about it."

    The stupidity of guys like this has to leave you shaking your head. :upeyes:

    He's truly a disgusting human being. It's truly regrettable that he's a member of this forum. Debate the religious, gun control, laws for the mentally disabled, etc when the country is not mourning the loss of the most innocent of people. To post such things on the day the children are killed is indicative of a lack of character and class.

    I weep for the children. What kind of person could have done this is not of my comprehension.

    God may not have been involved in the action, but is now involved in the outcome. Tragic situation.
