The Enemy among Us
I've read reports that the Colorado shooter was suffering from paranoia, and the Atlanta shooter had a sexual addiction problem. But the discussion got shuttled into rants about other things: racism and gun control. Maybe we need to wait a bit and get the whole story. The media firestorm proclaiming this or that cause or cure isn't really helpful. We go through this every single time there's a mass shooting. The pundits gradually stop talking about it, and we forget and move on. It should be obvious, but it isn't. The media skillfully uses these tragedies as tools to promote their political aims. And everyone jumps on board because it's so painful, and we want to do something constructive. Meanwhile the real causes go unaddressed, and there is further division and anger all because of the enemy no one names: Satan and all his fallen angels.
