As I wrote my earlier post today about about the religious right exploiting the Connecticut tragedy to demand universal acceptance of their doctrines, I know that we hadn’t heard the last of it. Lo and behold, the barrage of offensive remarks continues. Here is former Arkansas governor and Fox “News” contributor, Mike Huckabee.
So governor, how do we know that god is there in the form of hugs and therapy, but not in the form of the shooter? If you constantly keep telling us that god “acts in mysterious ways”, then how can you possibly know what to attribute to god and what not to attribute to god?
Creationist Eric Hovind tweeted basically the same thing.
So far we’ve got Deace, Fischer, Huckabee, Hovind. And likely more revolting ghouls to follow.
