President Obama, You're Right: Our First Job is to Protect All Our Children Comments

Last Friday, a very disturbed man with a rifle gunned down 26 souls in cold blood.  Do not deceive yourself into thinking that such reprehensible violence is truly shocking to us in America, or that we haven't the ability to stomach it, look the other way, and even justify it.  We can, and we do it every day.  We simply prefer our violence cloaked in the disguise of "rights" and "reproductive freedom".  Call it something ...

    Jennifer, another great article. Mother Teresa said it right, "If the baby in the womb has no value, then all humanity has no value". I see the Sandy Hook shooter as not a deranged guy but a 'Possessed' guy. We are learning how carefully the shooter had planned this crime. He destroyed his computers because he knew the investigators would go for his computer to find a motivation. This is a 24K example of what a possessed person is. He was stone evil.

    Life is so precious from Conception to a Natural Death. If we found life on Mars how precious would that be? VERY! I think! Why is life of so little value on planet earth? No own is safe in a world that devalues the life of the unborn. Guns equal EVIL,because when you take one in hand you have embraced this item with your heart. Look at an Icon of Mary holding the Christ Child. Never mind the religious aspect of the Icon if that is non sense to you. I ask what does it say to your human heart as she is holding a little child,as a mother that loves her child? Add the experience of looking at an Icon of Mary,Joseph and the baby Jesus. Look at it as Father,Mother and Child. What is the image saying to your heart? Don't look in a religious way,unless it is of help to you,look in a human way. Lastly,with Christmas coming most agree this holiday is for children,religion aside,hug your child.

    Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beautifully stated and right on the mark.

    Thanks for writing this article. I am making copies of this article and giving it to everyone I know. Unfortunately I seem to always be preaching to the choir.

    Jennifer-what a great article! I agree,Obama is such a hypocrite, he is using this "horrible" tragedy to advance his "evil" agenda, and most Catholic Americans, cannot see this!

    Dear Father Almighty, you have sent little children and gather them again as one. These innocents don't cry for help but we believe that they are with you right now. We include in our prayers thousand lives who perished in this final days of 2012. We know that You love them so much that You took them so early as the morning dew and set things straight up for Your greatest glory.

    Please forgive us for not thinking of You above all else. We apologize for not obeying Your greatest commands day and not. Most of all, please forgive us for violating the perfect law, that is, love.

    We want to love but we tend to kill, not save lives. We want to obey Your Divine Will but we tend to obey our selves. Please forgive us for these sins.

    We know, Lord God, that we can't do Your commands perfectly for this is what You want and the finality would be "Into Your Hands, Lord, we commend our spirits." Please save us, O My God, from the darkness of sins and may the perpetual light shine upon us, especially, the souls who have died in our humble world. Amen.

    3520 children killed on Friday, Dec. 14th, 20 children kill by a gun, 3500 by the abortion mills. Who has sinned in the eyes of God? Those who in full conscience, who commit these killings, or those with mental illness. We know what the medical treatment for the unborn is, but where was the help for the mentally ill? Yes, Mr President it is your first duty to protect the children, now do your job.

    Great article Jennifer, the hypocrisy of the abortion people is breathtaking when brought to the Light. The wisdom of Jesus is infinite, Matthew 5: 14, YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A CITY SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN". They have tried to hid this truth for to long. We kill our children for convenience and selfishness. We have a President who said that he would not want his children punished with an unwanted child. We wonder why our people have no respect for life. Our leaders promo this culture of death. Thank you again Jennifer.

    Merci!
    We need more strong voices in our country speaking for truth! President Obama needs to read this article himself.
    The unborn are children, too!
    Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us!
