Sure blame God, not the deranged murderer. If you're wanting to start a fight, please don't start it here. We need calmer heads to prevail in order for all of us to get through this horrific act. How many children has our president killed with his drone attacks. How many children are killed while U.N. peace keepers look on. Blaming God solves nothing, reaching out for solace does. We need cooler heads to prevail. If we allow the collective evil among us to win, we'll all lose more than the lives lost in todays terrible tragedy.
Okay this question is not okay. You don't call God a monster this was not his fault. This is very offensive. This was all the massacres selfish actions not God's. This was all the 20 year old massacre and his evil actions so before you really p*** me off please learn a little bit more about religion before you say things that you have no clue about. Not cool.

Dear christians, Before you read this know I am a good 30-40% christian, so take no offense. It's obvious this guy God if he exists isn't the nicest guy ever and dosnt want us to have awesome lives. I don't see why christians won't accept it. I'm not arguing with people or trying to slander a higher beings name but rather stating the obvious. You can't justify anyones actions because "oh God let him do it" or "Satan made him do it" Are you defending such people? I personally think that if God exists, he is a scary guy.
i am NOT believing i am reading this?....i think a better question would be..what DEMON decided to take prayer out of school = invite the devil in? i say we put the word of GOD back into more things...rather than some demon deciding it needs removed and the world just excepts it like its a ice cream cone ?REMEMBER! it was them that pushed him out..they could start by getting on their knees and asking him back...we have a forgiving GOD. (if GOD be for you who dare be against you)
See? Here's the problem with creating a fictitious idea of God. You create him in your head, you endow him with all the attributes you think a kind loving God should have, you endow him with the responsibility of having created all the world and all events that happen in that world, you expect him to make the world a nice happy safe place for you and yours. Then reality happens, and reality hurts sometimes, and of course you can't handle reality so you get mad at the God you've created because he didn't run the world according to your liking. It's not God's fault, he didn't let it happen. We live in the real world and in the real world, really really bad things happen. I don't know why things are the way they are, I just know that sometimes it breaks my heart. It can be really frustrating not knowing who to be mad at for stuff that happens. But directing anger at "God' isn't really an answer. I don't know the answer or if there even is one. Shalom

This is not the work of god it's the work of Satan it's that guys fault god died for your sins and Is a loving god not a monster so u should know Christians like myself would get offended by this question and have a right to get mad so before u blame god blame the killer and saten
Why is it always Gods fault. He is not slow to act, as some would say. He is extremely patient. The sin, the hatred, the murder, & all the abuse is directly born of evil. God has no evil in him. He does not face sin, his back has to be turned, otherwise his wrath would consume & annihilate all his children. He is sorry. If we (mankind), as evil as we are, feel remorse or sorrow, how much more do you think a loving father would feel? There recompense will be in the lake of fire with the deceiver, accuser & evil one. The victims of all this evil will be comforted. Please don't blame God, his all that is good.
God forgives you for asking a judgemental n mean n hurtful question like this, you must not know God if you asked this. why dont you try believing in something worth while like God is good, instead of blaming God for everything that goes wrong in the world, you could pray for those poor families and try to learn about "something" like God, Jesus or the bible before pointing blame because trust me it hurts God to hear such things and makes the devil happy and thats what he wants to push ones who dont understand or know God,religion,faith,and the bible away from the truth and the devil is no friend to anyone, God loves you and everyone...try to open ur heart to the love of God, what do u have to lose. it is a horrible sad scarey thing that happened i pray for them all and for schools to learn from this. we must protect the children from evil from bad people like this, i cry at the thought of those poor children n teachers and parents going threw this:'(
Certainly not the God I know. Sort of a disrespectful question in a time of grief. But since you raised the question, the atheist has a real dilemma. The murderer and the victim are buried in the same ground and that's it. No purpose, no justice, no distinction for what they did on this earth, no reason to live one way or another if all receive the same in the end. How cruel and unjust.
No, the God I know will hold court and deal every man according to his life. No one gets away with murder. Innocent children are restored to their parents for eternity--a merciful God indeed. And complete justice.
So, you and I will stand before God to give account for deeds, words, even thoughts. Good luck.
LISTEN it all has a BIGGER purpose so that more people will come to God the devil is trying to turn you away from God bad things that happen do 1 of 2 things either pushes you farther from God or closer to God choose wisely

I?m going to assume this question is a result of an emotionally upset individual and not to start a fight. In the garden of Eden a serious issue was raised by Satan:The righteousness and rightfulness of Jehovah's sovereignty. Was God withholding from mankind freedom that would contribute to their happiness? Were mankind's ability to govern their affairs successfully and their continued life truly dependent on their obedience to God? Had God been dishonest in giving a law that stated that disobedience would lead to their death? (Gen. 2:16,17; 3:3-5) So, did God really have the right to rule? But so that these issues would never again disrupt the peace and well-being of the universe, Jehovah (Yaweh) God has allowed ample time for them to be settled beyond all doubt. So, God has permitted both Satan and humans to try every form of government of their own making. None have brought lasting happiness. God has let mankind go to the limit in pursuing ways of life that ignore His righteous standards. The fruitage speaks for itself. Madmen in Newtown, Connecticut killing kids.
When we see suffering we tend to ask why in ways that are not the most respectful. It is good to know you care about those lost and have not become hardened by seeing events like this trhoughout the word.
I look at it this way: God ALLOWED it, he did not CAUSE it.
If I ALLOW my child to undergo a painful surgery and the results was death, it does not mean I CAUSED it. Yet some may call a parent a monster for allowing it because they don't understand the reasons behind such a decision. God has a reason for allowing suffering today. If you desire the true answer to your question, allow him to answer it. You will find that answer, not via email or text, but in a loving letter from Him, the Bible. Read it without bias from cover to cover and you too will see, he ALLOWS suffering but does not CAUSE it.
