Adam Lanzas massacre tame compared to Bible

Mike Huckabee doesn't think that Bushmaster assault rifles, or rapid-firing, high-capacity pistols like Glocks and Sig Saeurs had anything to do with the massacre of several dozen people at Sandy Hook Elementary this last Friday.  So what was the catalyst for it, in Huckabee's narrow, religiously-fanatic mind?  Why he thinks it's just that kids haven't had enough compulsory prayer and religious indoctrination beaten into them by the school system.

But actually, if Huckabee bother to read his Bible, instead of just beat on it, he would discover that there are plenty of massacres described in the Bible.  Moses and Joshua routinely slaughtered men, women, children, and even livestock ( Joshua 6:21, 8:26, 10-28-40; Numbers 31:16-18; 1 Samuel 15:3).  King Saul was ordered to commit massacres (1 Samuel 15:2-3) and when he wasn't sufficiently bloody, he was replaced by King David who was just a boy, probably about the age of Adam Lanza.   David was more than willing to kill in the name of his God (1 Chronicles 20:3, 2 Samuel 12:31).  Many other "heros" of the Bible including Samson, Gideon, Jehu, and on and on, were all too happy to commit mass slaughters.

So maybe it's a good thing that Huckabee's Bible God has been taken out of schools, before he inspires even more killing.
