Former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee had a very specific response to the tragic events that unfolded at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., expressing his belief that the horrific massacre was linked to the removal of God from the American classroom rhetoric.

“We ask why there’s violence in our school but we’ve systematically removed God from our schools,” the supremely Christian Huckabee told Fox News. “Should we be so surprised that schools have become such a place of carnage? Because we’ve made it a place where we don’t want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability.”

“That we’re not just gonna have to be accountable to the police if they catch us but one day we stand before a holy God in judgment. If we don’t believe that, then we don’t fear that,” he said. “People are going to want to pass new laws. This is a heart issue ... laws don’t change this kind of thing.”

Huckabee has been a noted opposer to strict gun control in the past.

Comment: WTF! Why is this asshole still speaking? Why hasn't the ACLU tapped him for being such an asshole. God has no impact on our society because there is no god. If there was, Huck would have eaten alive by liberals a long time ago.
