"He who sows the wind, reaps the whirlwind...."

This weekend, there was yet another shooting.

Two shootings in one day, both involving places of places of worship in Colorado.

I find it horrifying how many times we turn on the news to find yet another shooting has occurred. At a school. At a mall. At places of worship. At a workplace.

The majority of these shootings are carried out by men in their teens and twenties/thirties. I do not think it is a coincidence that these men are in the generations since the Bible has been taken out of school.

Say what you want about the seperation of church and state - at least having the Bible in schools helped lay a moral foundation of some sort. Instead, there is no direction for these young people today, unless they get it at home (and many don't).

I was not raised in a Christian home, but I thank God that I had teachers that were not afraid to be a moral role model for me and give some guidance - even at the risk of their careers.

Have you ever wondered what happens when you raise a generation of kids that know nothing of God?

Guess what? We are finding out. Bang bang.
