Gun Violence in America

AMERICAblog has reposted my blog essay on gun violence in America from August 28 "The fires of Moloch Are Burning" after the latest senseless shooting in Oregon:

"Unwilling to take meaningful action against gun violence, we are for all intents and purposes sacrificing our children for the sake of our gun rights."

In a country whose politicians love to shout “God Bless America!” at the end of their speeches, and whose people speak of faith in the public square and argue about putting the Ten Commandments on display, it is the ancient and brutal god Moloch who holds sway over so much of our public discourse. Indeed the fires of Moloch continue to consume our children while nothing is done to extinguish those flames.
