CNN is lamenting the fact that GOP frontrunner for the U.S. Senate in Alabama Judge Roy Moore told pastors and Christians in a speech last month that shootings and killings in American society are the result of removing God from schools.
Andrew Kaczynski’s KFile on CNN dug up a video of Moore from late August speaking at Citizen Impact USA, making the comments that have CNN and the GOP establishment in Washington similarly freaked out.
“We are losing the acknowledgement of God and I’m standing here talking to Christians and pastors and I’m telling you we’re losing the acknowledgement of God,” Moore said, per CNN’s report.
After, per Kaczynski, Moore began “reciting several verses from the Old Testament book of Hosea that deal with lack of knowledge of God,” the front-running candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama argued that shootings and killings in U.S. society today is because of the lack of God in public life.
“You wonder why we’re having shootings, and killings here in 2017? Because we’ve asked for it,” Moore said. “We’ve taken God out of everything. We’ve taken prayer out of school, we’ve taken prayer out of council meetings.”
In a video of Moore’s speech to Citizen Impact USA, he can be heard saying, “There’s no truth, no mercy, no knowledge of God in the land.” He then referenced Hosea 4:2 (King James Version) saying, “By swearing and lying and killing and stealing … they break forth and blood touches blood.”
Moore went on to cite a recent example of a coach who was barred from going out on the 50-yard line to kneel and say a silent prayer before a football game began. The school district filed a suit which resulted in an injunction to prevent the coach from praying at the 50-yard-line.
Within seconds of the CNN piece posting, the Senate Leadership Fund—a PAC affiliated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell which has spent millions upon millions of dollars in Alabama to try to prop up failing establishment candidate Luther Strange—spokesman Chris Pack tweeted the attack against Moore from CNN:
