Violence In America - Where Are The Pastors?

My heart was sad upon hearing the news of the school shooting in Connecticut.  Scared little children gunned down like it was nothing.  So tragic.  Our prayers are with the families during this time.

The causes of the shootings will be discussed and debated for years as will the ways to prevent future tragedies.  Guns, mental illness, video games, etc., -- no stone will go unturned in a search for answers.

As is the nature of tragedy, pastors will also seek to provide answers.  To help them, I would like to ask one question:  Where were you?  Did you preach on the pervasive culture of violence in America?  Whether it's music, TV, movies, or video games, violence is graphic and celebrated.  Were you men of peace who preached that Christians should stay away from such things?  Or like Pastor Jared Moore did you celebrate the violence and encourage others to get their enjoyment and entertainment from it?

I believe pastors like Jared Moore have a lot to answer for.  Not in a court of criminal law but in the high court of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace.

Pray for pastors to do the right thing.
