Is the death of God to blame for the culture that produces school shooters?

  • Materialists are less good.

    A religious person has an innate respect for life. School shooters are materialists who lose and in frustration flip the board. If we want to stop school shootings we should propagate churches. All school shooters save one are from fatherless homes. And as Freud says God serves the same purposes as a father being the father of us all.

  • Blame the media.

    Every time a shooting occurs, the media plasters they name and face across the country. They go from someone who is unknown to someone famous/infamous. When some other nobody sees this, it tells them that they too can be an important person. Instead of publishing their names and faces, what we should do is just refer to them as something less than what they are such as "some looser" or "an idiot" basically dismissing their existence instead of promoting it. Look, we hide the names of people to protect the innocent all the time and by doing this, we would likely stop kids from being victims.

  • For a god to die they must first of existed.

    You cant prove that there is a god and i cant prove there isn't. However there are over 3,000 depictions of god/gods all different and neither have definitive proof other wise there would only be one religion. I am sick of people believing that they are right even if there is evidence or proof to suggest other wise. Think of all the deaths there have been in the name of god or a god. The crusades, the holocaust, there just the easy ones. Lets stop blaming imaginary friends in the sky and take responsibility for are own actions.

  • As a theistic agnostic, God (or whatever higher power there may be) is not to blame for school shootings, period.

    Though public schools are not allowed to teach theology or pressure students into following religions, all students and employees are allowed to follow whatever religion they please. Schools give students the right to "pray" whenever needed. A Muslim student may pray as he needs, a christian child may pray in a time of need.

  • All places of worship need to fall, as no stone shall be upon another.

    For the Nature of our own existence creator is strong and the more that scientists look the more obsolete they become. Much like the Religious governing rule of the tree of Monkeys and the tower of Bable.
    Liberties are a long way down the slippery slope that ends up in a hole that tithers upon meltdown at a moment's grace.

    Put down your staff and dull the point upon your own tongue but keep your edges sharp because it has butt two sides that cut both ways.
    I will remind you for your own sake that yes it is because of CatholicLibertarian that people take the law into there own hands. NOT Nature our own existence creator (of intelligent design of the known universe)
    For we, the people find it so, not I find it so. It's not all about you or I it's all about us.
    Peace be with you as all praise and glory belong to Nature our own existence creator. Amen

  • Religion has nothing to do with school shootings.

    It is ignorant to believe that all of the worlds problems stem from lack of religion. There can be many factors that could have caused people to become school shooters. There are also many thing we could do to stop them, but propagating churches would do nothing. We need actual change.

  • God has to live first, in order to die.

    School shooters are not caused by the death of God. Actually, some school shooters actually believe that they're are doing good upon the school, and died for their belief, died a hero who saved the school, because in their view, they are are getting rid of the evil people, the bullies, and preventing them harming others.

    Similarly, religion can also have this view of saving others from evil people. The Salem Witch Hunt would be one example of this.

  • Religion is unrelated to mental illness that is often the cause of mass shootings.

    There is nothing that objectively makes one who abstains from religion less moral or less good than a theist. Moreover, this does not relate to school shootings due to the fact that mental illness (a common factor in these occurrences) does not discriminate on racial, religious or other bases. So tell me, how would believing in a deity intervene with an overpowering urge to inflict harm when in an altered state of mind? Also, students have every right to practice their religion, if they want to say a prayer at lunch they have every right to, the issue is when schools try to indoctrinate others into religion. Either way, it seems rather unrelated to the root cause of mental illness and large availability of weapons.
