The TRUTH will be heard.

Whether those listening want to hear it or not!

I received this via email from a friend:
Columbine father- 12 years later!!

Guess our national leaders didn't expect this. On Thursday, Darrell Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton , Colorado , was invited to address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he said to our     national leaders during this special session of Congress was painfully truthful.

They were not prepared for what he was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by every parent, every teacher, every politician, every sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The following is a portion of the     transcript:

" Since the dawn of creation there has been both good &  evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in vain. Their blood cries out for answers.

"The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.   Neither was it the NCA, the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart.

"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not a hunter.   I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest opponent.

I am here today to declare that Columbine was not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves.    I wrote a poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best.

Your laws ignore our deepest needs,
Your words are empty air.
You've stripped away our heritage,
You've outlawed simple prayer.
Now gunshots fill our classrooms,
And precious children die.
You seek for answers everywhere,
And ask the question "Why?"
You regulate restrictive laws,
Through legislative creed.
And yet you fail to understand,
That God is what we need!

Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and hatred to rush     in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were present within our educational systems for most of our nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that continue to     erode away our personal and private liberties. We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws can stop someone who spends months planning this type of massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts.

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young person in America , and around the world, to realize that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was brought back to our schools.    Do not let the many prayers offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give to you a sincere challenge. Dare to examine your own heart before casting the first stone!  My daughter's death will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not allow that to happen!"
Darrell Scott
Do what the media did not - - let the nation hear this man's speech. Please send this out to everyone you can.
God Bless
Here is my reply:

Very hard to read because it's so true.  In the gun bloging community there is a term for the reaction of groups like the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership and Illegal Mayors Against Guns. 

We call it "blood dancing." 

It’s as if they were dancing in the blood of the victims.  Sometimes it seems as if they can hardly contain their glee.  It begins almost the moment the first news reports come out any time a significant event such as Columbine occurs.  The various groups are brought in by their friends in the media to offer "expert opinions" on how this "gun crime" can be stopped. 

But it's not "gun crime."  It's crime.  Murder is a crime whether you use a gun or as Darrell Scott pointed out, a club.  A tool is a tool.  It can be used for good or for evil.  How it is used is entirely dependent on the intentions of the person using it. 

So often events like Columbine or Virginia Tech or the Colorado movie massacre happen in places that MAIG and the Brady's insist should be safe.  They call them Gun Free Zones.  We call them Defenseless Victim Zones.  In military terms they are known as Soft Targets.  Places where large numbers of people gather who have been stripped of their ability to defend themselves by laws, rules set out by the owners of the venue or simply by local custom.  Those with evil intent are well aware that they will almost certainly meet no effective resistance.  In the vast majority of cases the killing didn't stop until the killer was ready to stop.

In what can only be called a gross perversion of justice, it's been taken so far in the Brady's paradise of (formerly) Great Britton that defending yourself against a criminal is a crime in and of itself!  One that will get you, the defender, in more trouble with the law than the criminal you were defending against!

Fortunately people are finally starting to wake up to the lies we have been fed buy these groups, by our elected leaders and by so many who have been misled by them.

Life IS worth defending!  It is both our right and our duty to do so.  We can no longer sit idly by and hope that if we give the criminals what they want maybe they won’t kill us.  What if what they want IS to kill us?  In the three mass murder tragedies I’ve mentioned robbery was not a motive.  In all three the killer’s intent was to “go out in a blaze of glory.”  You will note that I have not named any of the killers.  They will not receive their glory or fame (really infamy) from me.  All they will get from me is indifference to their lack of humanity and my outrage at their actions.

And I will heap that same outrage on anyone who would deny another human being the right to defend themselves.  Those who would deny that right are not seeking to make anyone but the criminals they are empowering safe.  In a very real sense they are acting as accessories before the fact.  We should be prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law – not re-electing them!

Hello, I simply wanted to take time to make a comment and say I have really enjoyed reading your site.

While I respect others' right to their beliefs and religious practices, I wholeheartedly disagree with the premise that one needs God or religion to live a moral and ethical life. In fact, I submit that one who is compassionate and acts rightly towards his fellow man without fear of retribution from on high or commandments to guide him, but rather from his own goodwill, shows the truest form of morality.
