More a vacuum of the absence of God. Guess people get what they wish for.
What happened to that social atmosphere in which churches once sat on every corner, well-attended and exerting a moral influence that was, if not perfect, at least good overall? Where are the schools that once passed on to young people those traditions and social values that made for virtuous personal behavior and peaceful civic life?

...Were our domestic terrorists taught about those traditions and social values? Did either churches or schools introduce them to the Ten Commandments? It’s doubtful.

Change for the better is possible. Our nation has experienced periods of renewed faith and spiritual re-invigoration before. The so-called “Great Awakenings” that occurred in the 18th and 19th Centuries are such instances. But we’ve got a long way to go before we can recover our moral sense and refill the vacuum with good.

The terrible incidents of domestic terrorism are symptoms of the deeper problem we face. We’re in trouble as a society. And whether or not we get more “red flag laws,” there are already plenty of red flags waving to warn us of the danger all around us.

It’s past time to read the warning signs.
 
The vacuum was being filled, just as it was filled in the lives of our domestic terrorists. The glimpses of the devil we’ve gotten from these shootings confirm this. In the case of the Dayton shooter, for example, his notebook scrawlings included entries where he was explicitly hailing Satan.

That’s a detail which received very little attention in media reports. But then, we live in a highly secularized society that wants to deny the supernatural. Clearly, the devil was in Dayton. He was outing himself.

After consulting the GHM, verifying it accurate, weighing the likelihood that a helt beer gets hot, I have decided not to preach to this choir, not that some don’t need it and all. Recognizing that it’s one of my best sermons, I may reconsider after pondering the risk to the GHMs calibration.
