Minnesota school shooting raises more questions

by Aaron Earls [+/-] show/hide

Another school murder rampage has happened, with some of the same signs as the Columbine shooting.

A 17-year-old shot and killed his grandfather and his wife. Then he shot his way into his high school, Red Lake High School, where he killed five students, a guard and a teacher. He ended the shooting spree by taking his own life.

The shooter, Jeff Weise, was said to ask one of his victims if he believed in God. He was a loner, wore all black, alligned himself with Neo-Nazi beliefs, expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler and was picked on by some of his classmates.

Someone who identified himself as Jeff Weise of the Red Lake Reservation posted messages on a Neo-Nazi website under the nickname "Todesengel" - German for "angel of death."

This again brings me into conflict on the Terri Schiavo case and my stance on federal government intervention. All of this is connected, as a result of our continually degrading of the value of human life and in terms of the spiritual condition of our nation.

However, we do not need government mandated morality. We need a revival from God to bring Christians back into a right relationship with Him. We have to stop blaming everyone else for our lack of morality. Lost people are supposed to act lost. Christians are supposed to act Christian. If that were to happen a lot of things would change.

Update: Here is the latest information on the shooting. Also Michelle Malkin has plenty of links to the coverage.
