WHY ARE WE SURPRISED?

OmarMateenOrlandoShooter

Have we become so glossed over – so apathetic – so politically correct, that we can’t see this coming?  A man on the Homeland Security watch list commits mass murder in the name of ISIS and it becomes a political argument over gun control rather than considering the mind set of the killer.

I am convinced that we’ve just begun to see the effects of terrorism in our country.  We were made boldly aware of the danger way back on 9/11.  Blood was shed there and on the battlefield fighting it.  Now our passive leaders have let it go in the name of mental illness, stronger laws on the sale of guns and anything but the truth of the nature of this beast.

We’re afraid to call it what it is.  Extreme Islamic terrorism is a fact that’s being swept under the rug.  I’m afraid that there are cells all over our nation just waiting for the right moment to act.  If something isn’t done to address this evil, we are doomed as a nation.

I am confident in God’s plan for our lives as His followers, but there is a great evil lurking out there and we are trying to cover it up with platitudes and unfounded assertations.  It’s time for us to be watchful.  The enemy is seeking to destroy us.

  1. I already said this to another post this morning. The world as we know it is so full of sin and chaos that we have come to enjoy it. We don’t and can’t see right or wrong anymore we see these things as everyday occurrences. We have become a world that ignores these things and terrorism is just part of our problems. I’m going to stop rambling on now.

    This is simply because you are a fucking delusional headcase, that’s why.

    Don’t hold your breath for the next shoot-up. I am surprised there isn’t a standard meme for people like you.

    Imagine this comment (10.08) was leveled at the mother of the little stone god. (the mother of he who said this is supposedly a believer, per the words of himself, who said that you are ‘a delusional headcase.’)

    Don’t worry, the little stone god would never say this to his own mother, so he hides behind the shadows of a lifeless keyboard, thus making this charge to you completely meaningless. It is HIS cold heart on display, not yours or the goodness of God, that makes no distinction between bastard killers, and simple believers, who would not harm a sparrow, nor take the life of another without a cause.

    Everything that you said is fine and dandy, and evil lurks on every corner, especially in the hearts of the godless. He who murdered in the name of alla-hu ak-bar is devilish, diabolical, and godless.

  4. Your gun laws are the joke of the rest of the developed world. This man may have been crazy however it appears he was motivated by religion, the bane on our society.

    Watch out CS I am completely godless and obviously I may snap and become a delusional shooter in the name of Richard Dawkins.

    • Steve,

      According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 11,208 gun homicides in America in 2014.

      In a country with over 300 million guns, it’s hard to make the case that gun laws are the problem.

      I know people are quick to blame gun laws, it’s a political talking point that always gets a lot of traction in the wake of a tragedy but it’s simply baseless.

      • James applying your logic Islamic Terrorism is not a problem either.

        The odd thing is that I agree with you about Islamic Terrorism and its threat. But I also agree with sklyjd’s observation about U.S. gun laws.

        I live in the Australian state which suffered Australia’s worst mass shooting 20 years ago. After that the Australian government outlawed certain high powered automatic weapons. The sky did not fall in, the world did not end. No what happened was that these mass shootings stopped.

        • Hey Peter, thanks for commenting.

          No one I know is worried about the sky falling, what we are worried about is misinformation masquerading as fact to push a gun agenda. This is especially sad in the wake of a tragedy.

          Automatic weapons are already heavily restricted in America and these types of weapons are not used in mass shootings.

          In the Orlando shooting a Sig Sauer MCX and a semi-automatic pistol were used. In fact, I can’t think of a recent mass shooting where automatic weapons were used so, how would gun control like that in Australia help?

      • What Peter says is true James. 300 million guns with weak gun laws makes it really easy for nut cases to walk into a shop or buy one from anyone, anytime just as easy as buying an ice cream. You have to have training and a driving test to receive a registered licence to drive a car obviously for safety and accountability reasons, why not guns?

        • So you’re saying that, with the right registration, training, and accountability requirements, guns would be as safe as cars?

          Come on.

        • Steve,

          I truly hope the ice cream bit is hyperbole or you are just kidding.

          It is not easier to buy a gun than it is to buy ice cream or any common item for that matter. Never in my life have I been required to fill out federal form 4473 and have the cashier run a background check on me before being allowed to buy ice cream.

          There are no federal laws requiring ice cream dealers to register with the federal government prior to selling ice cream. There are no state laws requiring that you apply for and receive an ice cream purchase permit, complete with background check, prior to purchasing ice cream. There are no ice cream waiting periods or limits on how many ice creams you can purchase within a certain period of time. Nor are there, to my knowledge, any state or local laws prohibiting the possession of ice cream in schools or government buildings.

          Firearm manufacturing and sales are highly regulated by the federal government. Numerous complicated laws govern virtually every aspect of the process. Anyone who has purchased a gun before can you tell you in great detail that it is not as easy as buying ice cream. It is an expensive and time-consuming process.

          You may think gun control is a great idea and that it should be harder to buy a gun than it currently is, but you really should refrain from suggesting that legally purchasing a firearm is easier, cheaper, and less time-consuming than buying ice cream, it’s a silly argument.

  6. These times unfortunately and sadly some of the things manifesting as part of birthpang tribulation geering towards great tribulation. God’s weapons are not carnal so believers are to call more on God to SHORTEN EVIL DAYS BECAUSE GOD SAYS UNLESS PEOPLE PRAY TO SHORTENS EVIL TIMES NO ONE WILL SURVIVE. GOD SAYS, GIVE HIM NO REST DAY OR NIGHT UNTIL HE BRINGS RESTORATION AND DELIVERANCE IN JESUS NAME. SOME PUT THEIR TRUST AND CONFIDENCE IN HORSES AND CHARIOTS BUT NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST BELIEVERS CAN PROSPER SEPARATE THEM FROM THE ETERNAL LOVE OF GOD. SO PERILOUS TIMES ARE UNFOLDING RIGHT BEFORE WORLD AS PART OF FINAL KICKINGS OF SPIRITUAL DYING HORSE THAT KNOWS HIS TIME IS UP TRYING TO CAUSE MAYHEM JESUS ALREADY CONQUERED TO OVERCOME IN VICTORY. SIMULTANEOUS EVENTS POINT TO FOCUSSING MORE ON SHARING GOSPEL GOODNEWS TO CHANGE HEARTS OF STONE INTO HEARTS OF FLESH FOR A KING’S HEART IS IN GOD’S HEART TO BRING CHANGE IN JESUS NAME.
