This blog is about fighting for equal rights. This contain posts about LGBT people and people of all race and color as well as about women rights. Some time i will post about myself so you can get to know a bit about me. This is about equality.
I am deeply at a
loss when I heard about the shooting in the school in Connecticut. The shooter,
who I refuse to name, has murdered 20 children and 7 adults. I have read that
there have been teachers who have saved the lives of many children and had given
their life. They are truly heroic when they protected the children because many
more children’s lives would have been gone.
I wish to pay my
respect for the families who lost their loved ones. It is truly devastating and
it makes me grieve for them.
We do not know
much about the shooter or his motive. What we did know was that his mother
bought assault weapons and her son used them against her and went to the
elementary school to kill. I could never understand what goes into that monster’s
While we grieve
for the families and the victims, I want to address a few issue concerning
those who said “put God back in school” and proclaiming that this would not
have happened had they had prayers and bibles in class. I can’t fathom how
stupid this sounds. If you honestly believe that the Bible and prayer could
have stopped the shooting, then explain to me how your god didn’t stop the
shooting in Aurora theater in Colorado? Was the god not welcome in theaters
either? What about the churches, which your God is mostly praised and
worshiped, where there’s prayers and bibles all over the church, which happens
to be where kids get abused by priests or pastors.
When you tell me
that your God was not allowed in school which is the result of the shooting, I wondered
exactly how much thought you put into this or that you were just listening to
some people who have no idea what they’re talking about, because your god, the
god who is all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving, could have stopped the
shooting anyway. Your god could have stopped anyone from going to the school
with a gun. Your god could have stopped pastors or priests from abusing a
child. Your god could have stopped any parents who would kill their own child.
Your god could have stopped a kidnapper before he or she could have snatched a
child from the playground.
You might think I
am attacking your god. I am not, I’m attacking your bullshit statement. I don’t
know about anyone here who reads this, but I am sick of the “put god back”
crap. Your god was not gone, your god was not banned from anything, and it’s
our responsibility to take care of the affairs here.You see, it doesn’t matter
to me whether or not god exists, what matters is that we have to take
responsibilities for ourselves to take care of the issues. We need to stop with
the blame, stop pointing fingers, and work together to find solutions that can
Do I believe
that gun control laws work or not? What I see is that there is no sure fire way
to solving the problem. You may think that gun control laws works, and in some
ways, gun control laws doesn’t. It’s not all black and white. I think we need
to found a way that can be used with common sense, logic, and even reason. We
need to put our heads together and find a way to help solve the problem of gun
violence and more. I want there to be no gun violence as much as anyone else. I
don’t believe that gun advocates are gun-loving, crazed folks who would be
irresponsible, nor do I think that anti-gun folks were stupid, paranoid ‘fraidy
cats either. Both sides have valid points that we need to look at and work our
way through with them.
I don’t believe
that stricter gun laws would work, because criminals do not obey laws and even
if you remove the guns, there are those who would use whatever necessary to
kill another; bombs, fire, poison, and more. Why are there some folks so
persistent on killing people? I don’t have the answer, but I do know that some
folks are without capacity for empathy.
I do think that
citing the amendment sounds a lot like quoting the bible verse. It’s best not
to go, “Well it said so here, so…” I prefer that we think for ourselves and
look at the information we can gather.
Right now, let
us give respect to the families and the victims in the Connecticut.
