Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) The shootings that took place in an Aurora movie theater hours were the result of  “ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs” “You know what really gets me, as a Christian, is to see the ongoing attacks on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and then some senseless crazy act of terror like this takes place.”

“Some of us happen to believe that when our founders talked about guarding our virtue and freedom, that that was important,”  “Whether it’s John Adams saying our Constitution was made only for moral and religious people … Ben Franklin, only a virtuous people are capable of freedom, as nations become corrupt and vicious they have more need of masters … We have been at war with the very pillars, the very foundation of this country.”

Gohmert said that this “terrorist act”  could have been avoided if the country placed a higher value on God. “People say … where was God in all of this?”  “We’ve threatened high school graduation participations, if they use God’s name, they’re going to be jailed … I mean that kind of stuff. Where was God? What have we done with God? We don’t want him around. I kind of like his protective hand being present.”

Gohmert also said the tragedy could have been lessened if someone else in the movie theater had been carrying a gun and took down the lone shooter. Istook noted that Colorado laws allow people to carry concealed guns.
