It has been one year since the grizzly scenes of the Columbine High School
massacre stunned and grieved the nation. Despite all the attention given to the
problem of children killing children, the horror has continued. And the question
still heard across the nation is, "Why?" It would be well for us, therefore, to
ponder again the additional questions we raised in April, 2000:
- Activist/liberal federal judges have long been fighting to expunge every
vestige of God from our nation's classrooms and public life. Why,
therefore, shouldn't our children assume that there is ultimately no One
to whom they are accountable, freeing them to behave as they choose?
- Activist/liberal federal judges have long been upholding the exclusive
teaching of evolutionism to our children--that all of us are simply higher
forms of animals who have evolved from lower forms. Why, therefore,
shouldn't our children behave like animals?
- Activist/liberal federal judges have long been battling to convert abnormal
and immoral such as homosexual behavior into conduct that is normal
and moral. Why, therefore, shouldn't our children conclude that other
abnormal and immoral conduct, such as murder, is now normal and
- Activist/liberal federal judges have long been elevating to a superior constitutional status the "right" of a woman to kill her unborn, or partially-born, child. Why, therefore, shouldn't our children conclude that they, too, have the right to kill the children around them?
As we grieve over the losses of Columbine High School and other
seemingly inexplicable killings, perhaps we should also grieve that America's
activist/liberal federal judges have sown the wind, but it is our children who are
reaping the whirlwind. Surely it is time for us to CURB THE COURTS and
reclaim our children and our country.
