Columbine Dad: Easier to Kill Kids Because We Have Devalued Life

October 4, 2006


Did you see this on CBS news last night? Didn’t think so, but here is a chilling commentary from this father of a murdered Columbine High School student on the latest spate of school shootings. His written comments are below. His video is here.
(CBS) I’m saddened and shaken by the shooting at an Amish school today, and last week’s school murders.

When my son Dan was murdered on the sidewalk at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999, I hoped that would be the last school shooting. Since that day, I’ve tried to answer the question, “Why did this happen?”
This country is in a moral free-fall. For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum, expelling God from the school and from the government, replacing him with evolution, where the strong kill the weak, without moral consequences and life has no inherent value.
We teach there are no absolutes, no right or wrong. And I assure you the murder of innocent children is always wrong, including by abortion. Abortion has diminished the value of children.
Suicide has become an acceptable action and has further emboldened these criminals. And we are seeing an epidemic increase in murder-suicide attacks on our children.
Sadly, our schools are not safe. In fact, we now witness that within our schools. Our children have become a target of terrorists from within the United States.

Here are some of the comments by the ‘tolerant’ crowd who hated the speech:

RE:Rohrbough: Are you trying to outdo Fox Network taking sides by choosing NeoCons on every topic? What ever happened to Integrity, Independence, Wisdom, Understanding and Compassion. If you continue on your present path, your career will certainly be ruined as viewers turn to more professional news programs without overt bias. How sad!

People, the problem with our public schools has nothing to do with God, or the lack thereof. In the first place, since the public schools are an arm of government, a Christian God (ANY god, for that matter) MUST be excluded. That’s what churches are for. If you disagree with me, fine; but read the First Amendment before you start bashing me as in immoral, atheistic, commie, pinko, etc. As for the schools teaching morality, isn’t that the parents job? No, the problem with our public schools is that they have stopped teaching our children how to think. Rather, since the Federal Government began funding public education in this great country, the public schools have been charged with teaching our children WHAT to think. I thank the gods every day that I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s, when it was acceptable to question what I was being taught and to investigate on my own.

Tell ’em where you saw it. Http://
