I was once a Evangelical Christian. I did the whole laying on of hands, speaking in tongues and general spouting of hate. Of course I didn't realize that is what I was doing. I thought what I was doing was spreading love. I consider myself blessed that I was able to break free of the bondage of religion and can now express my true self.
A great man once said, "You must be the change that you want to see in the world." I hope to change every day.
I hear this a lot too. I think the argument is that kids who believe in Jesus and his teachings on love and forgiveness may be less likely to commit a school shooting. Although some might say it's divine punishment, but I really don't believe that and I cringe when I hear it said. Maybe we should instead blame this on a combination of peer bullying, violence made cool in movies and games, easy access of guns and bullets to a minor, or a failure of a parent to teach their kids not to do this? You don't have to be religious to teach your kids to forgive and love others instead of hate them and want to get even.
Oh, teen pregnancies? Oh, that has nothing to do with prayer. That's all hormones and love and stuff.
