Christian radio host: God will keep allowing school shootings as long as abortion is legal

God is all powerful and his love is eternal. But since abortion exists, he’s powerless when it comes to the slaughter of children in schools.

That’s the logic of the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer.

During his Focal Point radio program this Thursday, Fischer claimed that God’s “view is blocked” due to America’s acceptance of abortion, thus rendering him incapable or unwilling to stop the horror of mass shootings.

“We have these school shootings at Sandy Hook and other places and what we need to realize is look, if you have a culture, you have a nation that’s spent 60 years telling God to get lost, then we should not be surprised when He’s not around when we want Him to be,” Fischer said.

“Now, what have we done to create this separation between us and a God whose ear can hear and whose arm can save, but he doesn’t?”

Fischer justified this take by reading from the book of Isaiah.

“‘Your hands are defiled with blood and your fingers with iniquity,'” Fischer read.

“So when we hold up our hands in prayer, you know what God sees when the people of our nation lift their hands to God in prayer? He sees the blood of 60 million innocent babies defiling our hands and dripping off our fingers,” he added.

“So He can’t hear, He can’t see, His view is blocked by the blood, the shed blood, of the innocents.”

Let’s just take a moment to unpack Fischer’s logic here: As a result of innocents being slaughtered in the womb, God will allow the slaughter of innocents in the classroom.
