Observations Touching the Covenant Presbyterian Nashville School Shooting

1.) Just a little research reveals that these school shootings typically happen in bright blue (Democrat) areas. While Tennessee as a state went solidly for Trump, Nashville as a region was hard blue. This is a pattern for these types of shootings, whether Parkland, San Bernardino, Orlando, Sandy Hook, El Pasos or Las Vegas, all have at least the one common denominator as occurring in politically controlled Democratic bastions.

2.) When the shooting in Poway happened the long on hutzpah but short on  brilliance Rev. Chris Streval tried to pin that shooting as the fault of Kinism. Of course Chris was in gross error as I exposed. However, with this shooting one has to wonder if R2K “theology” is responsible to some degree.

We have seen our culture swirl down the drain and all the time many voices (R2K) in the putative Conservative Reformed Church has been telling us that the organized Church or its clergy should not speak to cultural issues since those are not in the visible organized Church’s bailiwick. Escondido and other Seminaries have been teaching their students and lecturing the Reformed Churches that they need to withdrawal.

Oh, to be sure, the R2k-philes will say that Christians as individuals can organize and thump and contend for their respective positions but the Church and Clergy dare not speak on these issues, and especially not from the pulpit.

As a consequence withdrawal and retreat from culture by the institutional Church has too often been the Church’s position. Now, when the righteous withdraw and retreat a vacuum is created for the wicked to rush in and fill. When Christians refuse to create Christian culture then all that is left is for the wicked to create non-Christian culture.

As long as R2K continues to be the model paradigm in Reformed Churches you can expect that the culture will continue to light up the Christians.

Maybe we should think of this shooting of a PCA Church school as God’s revenge of R2K being taught in the Church?

3.) I see there is at least one video showing the Nashville police clearing the building and then shooting the perp. I’m glad they shot the perp. Better a dead perp than more judicially innocent dead children and staff.

Having made that clear, ask yourself these questions;

“If the perp had not been a white person would that footage have even been released?”

“If the perp had been a member of the minority community would the Nashville Police dared to release such footage?”

I do not have a problem with releasing the footage. My problem is that by releasing that footage, coupled with my conviction that such footage would never have been released had it been a minority shooter what is communicated is that white people are not quite as to be valued as minorities.

4.) The lugenpress media continues with what the lugenpress always does. As my Mother-in-law liked to say, “what do you expect from a pig but a grunt.” The New York Slimes ran a diminished story on the shooting of Christians as compared to how they emblazoned with a bold headline the shooting in Buffalo NY. Comparing the coverage by the New York Slimes as it covered the Buffalo shooting contrasting with the Nashville shooting we find;

• Large, bold font, two-line headline
• Smaller, single line, headline
• Charged language that points to a racist ideological motive (“RACISM FUELS”)
• Neutral language that conceals trans-ideological motive
• Kills
• Mentions effect on community (“GRIEF AND RAGE”)
• No mention of the effect on the community
• Large, sprawling, up-close image of victims
• Smaller, muted, image of faceless victims whose backs are turned and at a distance
• No competing headline
• A clear competing headline whose elevation is questionable given its relative impact on Americans (foreign vs domestic affairs)

The New York Slimes (and the rest of the mainstream media) are revealing to us whose lives they want us to value more, and whose lives they want us to value less.

5.) Following that line NPR (National Pinko Radio) did not mention the fact that the shooter was a tranny. Neither did NPR (National Pinko Radio) use any pronouns.  Nor did NPR (National Pinko Radio) mention any motive for the crime. Would that NPR (National Pinko Radio) was always that careful with “news” stories.

Honestly given the slant and tilt of NPR (National Pinko Radio) I’m surprised that they weren’t reporting that “a angry young white male using illegally gained weapons murdered six people that were partying at a gay bar masquerading as a school.”

6.) Some have noted that the shooter must not have been mentally balanced. Really? What was your first clue? Are you just saying that because they shot up a school? Wasn’t there plenty of evidence before she shot up a school that she was tetched — like the fact that she as a woman is claiming to be a man? Indeed, much of the reporting demonstrates that those reporting are insane by not including in their reporting that when the criminally insane are allowed on our streets we should not be surprised when they do criminally insane things.

7.) If this poor woman who shot up the school was taking testosterone to transition from “Audrey” to “Aiden” it is not a wonder that her cheese slipped its cracker. Taking hormones can mess with people. Even when men take testosterone it can make them cranky.

8.) The fact that the shooter chose the target she chose, of course, was not accidental. More and more voices from the insane left are being lifted in their denunciation of Christianity and the Christian faith. Now, when a cacophony of hatred (even as lifted by a minority of insane and loud voices) does its work eventually that hatred is going to break out against someone or numerous ones. As such, every Biblical Christian in America who has made their views publicly known without apology should realize that they are a potential target. Likewise, if you’re attending a Biblical Christian church in America, even if you don’t personally lift your voice to make your views known, you should realize that you are a potential target. The time for being worried about being paranoid is past. Now is the time to worry that you’re not paranoid enough.

9.) While most of my compassion is spent on those folks murdered and especially now for the families that they leave behind, I can’t help but also have some compassion for the poor woman who was killed justly. Was she so damaged because of her exposure to the insanity of this culture? Was her family life so broken that it was inevitable that she would go insane? Did she go to some kind of counselor, psychologist, or psychiatrist who told her that her gender identity confusion was perfectly normal? If so, why aren’t they being arrested for complicity in this heinous murder spree?

Look, I know the shooter is not a victim. She got what she deserved given her actions. But what cued her up to this end? Yes, of course she had a sin nature but man’s sin nature is doing things now in this culture (like claiming to be of the opposite sex while shooting up a school) that the sin nature didn’t do two generations ago with this kind of frequency.

How many more are out there that we are destroying because we are telling them that their insanity is perfectly sane?

God helps us all.

God help especially those families weeping over the loss of their family members tonight.

  1. Re the lugenpress:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/walkaway/ exists solely to point out hypocrisy.

    But I’ve been watching reporting on colored crime for years before r/walkaway existed. The obvious conclusion is we are living in a dark age. The truth value of public information is zero.
