Evil Incarnate In Las Vegas

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 6, 2017

         THE MAN WHO SLAUGHTERED 59 PEOPLE AND WOUNDED MORE THAN 500 OTHERS FROM HIGH ATOP A LAS VEGAS HOTEL ROOM WAS POSSESSED BY EVIL.

         SOPHISTICATED MODERNS DON’T LIKE TO TALK OF EVIL, EXCEPT IN A DETACHED WAY. MANY THINK MORE LAWS WILL RESTRAIN EVIL WHEN PREVIOUS LAWS HAVE NOT. SOMEONE INTENT ON COMMITTING AN EVIL ACT WILL FIND A WAY, NO MATTER HOW MANY LAWS ARE ON THE BOOKS.

         THERE IS NO LAMENT FOR THE NEARLY 60 MILLION BABIES WHO HAVE BEEN KILLED THROUGH ABORTION IN AMERICA SINCE 1973. THAT’S LARGELY BECAUSE THEY ARE KILLED OUT OF SIGHT. IF THE NEWS CARRIED PICTURES OF BABIES BEING ABORTED, ESPECIALLY LATE TERM ONES, THAT MIGHT HAVE AN EFFECT EVEN IN OUR ANYTHING GOES CULTURE. SO WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

         AN AVERAGE WEEKEND IN CHICAGO AND OTHER MAJOR CITIES SEES DOZENS OF SHOOTINGS. TOUGH GUN LAWS HAVE NOT STOPPED THEM BECAUSE EVIL ALWAYS FIND A WAY.

         SCRIPTURE INFORMS US OF DEMONS AND POSSESSION. I AM NO EXPERT ON SUCH THINGS, BUT SOMETHING MUST HAVE POSSESSED 64-YEAR-OLD STEPHEN PADDOCK TO MOW DOWN ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE IN LAW VEGAS. IF IT WASN’T EVIL, WHAT WAS IT? I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
