My thanks to Breitbart for coalescing this stuff. It’s kinda saddening. At times in the past, I would have beaten them to the punch. But, that’s neither here nor there.
Today, and last night we saw some very angry leftards. The headline of the thought-to-be-defunct Daily News expresses it nicely, but, there are other things to note. Again, from Breitbart …….
…. Prayer Is The Problem! One of the odder narratives yesterday came courtesy of the mainstream media, as well as certain Democratic politicians, including a sitting U.S.AIR Senator: those offering thoughts and prayers were the problem. This narrative likely began months ago after the Umpqua Community College shooting, when Obama said that thoughts and prayers weren’t enough; now that narrative has penetrated the leftist mainstream.
Your “thoughts” should be about steps to take to stop this carnage. Your “prayers” should be for forgiveness if you do nothing – again.

Other countries must have fewer mass shootings because their conservative politicians offer thoughts and prayers more vigorously. — Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias)December 2, 2015
At least 14 dead and 14 injured. But lucky for them, the GOP is offering up loads of thoughts and prayers! — Markos Moulitsas (@markos) December 2, 2015
Fuck your prayers. https://t.co/y1nb2Jbxif

Huffington Post ran the headline, “Another Shooting, Another Deluge of Tweeted Prayers,” with the lead, “Public officials are the people society trusts to solve society’s ills. Like, say, gun violence. But every time multiple people have been gunned down in a mass shooting, all these officials can seemingly do is rush to offer their useless thoughts and prayers.” The dying New York Daily News took the cake with this cover:

The same people who believe that when radical Muslims engage in mass shootings, that’s not an indictment of Islam, are now pointing to Christians who pray for shooting victims and labeling them the problem. According to these deep thinkers, if you shout “Allahu akhbar!” while shooting crowds of innocents, that’s not religious in any way; if you pray for the victims, you’re a religious nutjob.
Yeh, with the response of our fellow citizens from the left, it’s a small wonder why God isn’t “fixing this”. You see, leftards hate God. For some reason, the proverb Jesus quoted comes to mind, “Physician, heal thyself.”
Look at what HuffPo had to write ….. “Public officials are the people society trusts to solve society’s ills.” …… well, yes, that’s what leftards believe. Of course, it is a totally and entirely errant thought. Public officials are a reflection of the current society, not some healer of societal ills. Indeed, being the reflection of society it is impossible for them to solve any societal problem. It is that society first must fix the ills and then the officials codify the fix. There are no laws or codes which will hinder or stop lunatics from mass murders. In spite of what president Zero states, Europe is proof there are no laws which will stop these things.
It is that the left has celebrated, encouraged, and fostered a notion pervasive in our society today which cheapens life. They hate the Christian-Judeo ethos and have ushered in and protected groups with completely different ethos and mores. They celebrate multiculturalism, while we all absolutely do know many cultures have little or no regard for life.
To be sure, there have always been, and always will be, mad men and women among us who would endeavor to do such things. But, it is the left’s insistence upon cheapening life and rejecting the Christian-Judeo God and the ethos which comes from embracing such which is causing such events.
Oh, and one last thing to note and quote ……

Terrified social workers locked their office doors, hid in bathrooms and ducked under desks as gunshots rang out.
Several people texted loved ones as they sought cover.
“People shot. In the office waiting for cops. Pray for us,” Terry Petit’s daughter texted him. Her fate was unclear.
Yeh, well, I don’t give a damn about what Matt, Scott, Chris, Tim, Markos, the Daily News, HuffPo, president Zero, or any other leftard thinks. Terry Petit’s daughter said she needs some prayers, she’s going to get them. She got them.
Addendum: If one truly exams what is useless, and worthless, one can easily conclude people bitching about people praying is much less than the people praying.
