Apparently, the sexual abuses that happened at Penn State University aren’t the fault of Jerry Sandusky. According to Georgia lunatic and Tea Bagging moron extraordinaire Jody Hice, they’re the result of removing the Bible from schools.
While sitting across from Christian radio host Rick Wiles, Hice “convincingly” argued that the “Judeo-Christian worldview” the United States had been “founded upon” is one of the reasons why we can “self-govern” our lives “on basis of right and wrong” and that removing this worldview leads to “exactly what we are witnessing at Penn State.” As you read his quote, remember what they say: if you can’t dazzle ’em with brilliance. . .
People need to understand that the Judeo-Christian worldview that this country was founded upon places within the hearts of individuals and the culture at large the capacity to self govern their lives on the basis of right and wrong. When that is removed, you get exactly what we are witnessing at Penn State: the absence of the ability to govern one’s life based upon right and wrong, and you have things like pedophilia taking place and other people seeing it, witnessing, turning their back because there’s no core values of right and wrong.
It’s convenient he didn’t mention that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was a long time member of a local congregation — St. Paul’s United Methodist Church.
Hice also that he felt the country had become “morally bankrupt” and that it all started when those mean old atheists insisted on the separation of church and state:
You can go back decades, as we first kicked the Bible out of schools and prayer out of schools. We’ve just basically been going downhill since then and you get what you get.
Because sexual predators never existed previous to the middle 20th century?
Don’t expect any sort of intellectual or moral fiber from Hice; he’s argued in the past that the First Amendment doesn’t extend to Muslims, and that he’s blamed the separation of church and state for the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary.
