To co-opt a phrase from The Princess Bride: Freedom ... "I don't think that word means what you think it means."
People need to stop using the word "freedom" to justify a political agenda. Using the word to justify one (right to bear arms) while forgetting another (freedom of religion) is disingenuous at best, heartless and calculating at worst.
There are people who are virtuous and helpful:
Conn. shooting: Principal died lunging at gunman
And then there are Christian blowhards:
Mike Huckabee: Newtown Shooting No Surprise, We've 'Systematically Removed God' From Schools
AFA: God Did Not Protect Connecticut Shooting Victims Because Prayer Banned In Schools
"There is in every village a torch: The schoolteacher. And an extinguisher: The priest" -- Victor Hugo
And don't tell me this is a time for praying. It doesn't bring those children back. Praying is one of the most selfish acts there is. It makes YOU feel good while doing absolutely nothing for anyone else.
