Pat Robertson Said Shooting in LV Happened Because People Disrespect President & Country
quote:

Pat Robertson, the famed televangelist from the long-running 700 Club show, claimed on Monday in the aftermath of the Las Vegas attack that the deadliest mass shooting in American history was caused by people disrespecting the president and the flag.

As pointed out by Hemant Mehta at Patheos’ “The Friendly Atheist” column, Robertson said “violence in the streets” could be explained by a lack of “controlling” and “biblical” authority in the United States.

“Why is it happening?” Robertson asked his audience. “The fact that we have disrespect for authority; there is profound disrespect for our president, all across this nation they say terrible things about him. It’s in the news, it’s in other places. There is disrespect now for our national anthem, disrespect for our veterans, disrespect for the institutions of our government, disrespect for the court system. All the way up and down the line, disrespect.”

“Until there is biblical authority,” Robertson continued, “there has to be some controlling authority in our society and there is none. And when there is no vision of God, the people run amok … and we have taken from the American people the vision of God, the whole idea of reward and punishment, an ultimate judge of all our actions, we’ve taken that away. When there is no vision of God, the people run amok.”

Yes he is, but I blame the people who follow him and allow him to continue having a platform.

He has a point. Obama brought division and it’s grown exponentially since Trump’s election. It’s all related is some sick way that I don’t fully understand. These people are truly evil and need Jesus.

Robertson's weird thoughts are the very same thoughts that killers like the Las Vegas have of their own.

Come on man. The country brings division. There are ultras from both sides that causes division simply because their person didn't get elected. It has been magnified under Obama and Trump because of social media, but there have always been crazy people who has done crazy shite.

There is more people on Earth today than ever before (or at least that we know of) so there is more people here to do more crazy shite. When things like this happen everyone wants answers, but let's take what happened in LV. There is no known motive yet. It has been reported that his biological dad was a true psychopath. It could be as simple as something the LV shooter inherited and having no conscience and being a hunter (or maybe being a hunter had nothing to do with it), he decided before he dies, he wanted to shoot at people, in a group.. So he planned it and within his plans he decided after he did it he would take himself out..

There were kids at this concert. I am not sure if any died or was injured.. But what type of God would try to make a statement to the world by having someone shoot up a huge group of people?

I agree. Tom Petty actually provided something creative and enjoyable to the world.

Or maybe it was a crazy loon who had no value of the life of others. Sometimes, there isn't some profound meaning behind everything.
