  1. When coming out of Mass this past week I heard someone say"How could God allow something like this to happen"..I told her Children no longer are allowed to say the "Lords Prayer" at the beginning of each school day..Manger scenes are now banned in many public places..Under God " in the "Pledge of allegiance is no longer Politically correct Why you even can't say Merry Christmas any more without fear of offending someone.

What ever happened to "One Nation Under God"? This senseless violence goes a lot deeper than Gun Control and Mental Health issues..The very fabric of American Society has been compromised through the breakdown of the Family..But that is another story
