Radio host Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association said this week that God had allowed the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre to happen as a punishment for legalized abortion.
"An incident like the killing in Sandy Hook, the cold-blooded killing of those children in their first grade classrooms, how does that happen?" Fischer remarked on his Monday radio show. "Why does God permit that? Why doesn't God intervene."
According to Fischer, the answer was "because our sins as a nation have driven God from us."
“So as we lift our hands in prayer as a nation, what he sees is the blood on our hands of the 57 million unborn babies whose lives have been taken through abortion,” the radio host opined after reading a passage from the Book of Isaiah. “So he can’t hear our prayers because the blood of the unborn cries out to Him and He can’t hear our prayers over the pleas of the blood of the unborn.”
"So if we’re once again going to have God hear our plans, we have got to clean up our act, and that’s got to start with abortion,” he insisted.
Fischer reminded his viewers that he had made a similar point after the 20 Sandy Hook Elementary School students were murdered in 2012.
“We have spent the last 60 years in our culture telling God to get lost, and we wonder why He’s not around when we need him? God’s a gentleman, he will not go where he’s not wanted," he warned.
