Bob Layton thinks secular convocations cause school shootings

This is absurd.

While all this goes on, there’s been another campus shooting, this one in Arkansas. Two dead. Should someone ask why God allowed this to happen in a school, why God did not intervene, point them to one of the internet sites that reminds us, God is not allowed in schools.

I don’t even know where to begin with this. His commenters are not better:

Regarding Ray’s comments, yes, all murders are atheists. All religions, except atheism, teach that killing is wrong. Unless you actually want to fry in hell, you are not going to ignore a commandment not to kill unless you think there is no God watching. Regarding people who do kill, supposedly in the name of the religion, just because someone claims to believe in the Bible or the Koran does not mean that they actually do. Atheists are also not commanded not to lie. By the way, I do believe that even though Osama bin Ladin claims to me a moslim, I believe that he is privately an atheist.

Why are there significantly more Christians in jail and very secular countries have low murder rates (Saudi Arabia being a marked exception)?

    Because they are all liars, weren’t you listening?

  2. I left a message for Bob.
    “Mr. Layton, this was the stupidest thing I’ve read in ages. The values this country were founded on refused women the legal status of persons. Native culture was systematically dismantled and native children forced into residential schools to “civilize” them and convert them to a foreign religion. There is a hell of a lot this country has to be ashamed of in its “Christian” heritage. Forcing people to choose between staying home on a day celebrating their accomplishments or being told to serve a god they don’t believe in is a disgrace.

  3. “Why are there significantly more Christians in jail and very secular countries have low murder rates (Saudi Arabia being a marked exception)?”

    But the irritating thing is that certain theists will bring up Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and the others. It’s like clockwork.

  4. I think we need to teach everyone that life has value. I am so concerend about my family that I purchased 2 bullet proof backpacks from bullet blocker .com for my neice and nephew to go to school with. and pray the the childrens safety every day.thank you for reading this
