Father of Slain Columbine Student Speaks Out

After the unfathomable shootings of the little girls in Pennsylvania, Brian Rohrbough was given the opportunity to comment on the event. Why Brian Rohrbough? Because his son was shot and killed in the Columbine murders a few years back.

In answer to “How such a horrific event could take place,” Rohrbough responded. (This is only a part of is comments.)

“This country is in a moral free-fall. For over two generations, the public school system has taught in a moral vacuum, expelling God from the school and from the government, replacing him with evolution, where the strong kill the weak, without moral consequences and life has no inherent value.

We teach there are no absolutes, no right or wrong. And I assure you the murder of innocent children is always wrong, including by abortion. Abortion has diminished the value of children.

Suicide has become an acceptable action and has further emboldened these criminals. And we are seeing an epidemic increase in murder-suicide attacks on our children.

Sadly, our schools are not safe. In fact, we now witness that within our schools. Our children have become a target of terrorists from within the United States.”

Since this came on ABC’s News broadcast with Katie Kouric in a segment called, “Freedom of Speech” you can probably imagine the uproar over Rohrbough’s comments which were called repugnant. Reading Kouric’s blog about this father’s assessment, there were those who found him to be essentially as heinous, by implication, as Roberts, the man who shot the girls.

“The earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty…” 24:4-6

To a large degree, people don’t want answers that are truthful; they want affirmation for their sins. Politics won’t change any of this; we should have at least learned this over the past six years.

Isaiah wrote again, “Only when you come to judge the Earth will people turn from their wickedness and do what is right.”

And then it will be too late…
