NY Daily News Slams Presidential Hopefuls For Calling Upon God
Just after the heinous San Bernandino massacre in which 14 innocent lives were taken, the New York Daily News featured the incident as their cover story. They mocked the GOP presidential candidates for praying to God instead of calling for more gun control.
Their title “God Isn’t Fixing This” caused a whole lot of controversy as it mocked Sen. Ted Cruz, Governor Chris Christie, former Governor Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, and Donald Trump for invoking God’s name following the massacre.
Cruz tweeted, “Our prayers are with the victims, their families, and the first responders in San Bernardino who willingly go into harm’s way to save others.” Christie tweeted, “Praying for all those victimized by the shootings in San Bernardino, California today..”Bush tweeted, “Praying for the victims, their families & the San Bernardino first responders in the wake of this tragic shooting.” Carson tweeted, “My thoughts and prayers are with the shooting victims and their families in San Bernardino.” And Trump tweeted, “California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated!”
There is nothing wrong with calling upon the name of our Lord in troublesome times like these. Shame on the NY Daily for trying to shame those who call up on the name of the Lord!
