Mark Levin says shootings can stop with return to Judeo-Christian roots
By Heather Hamilton
Amid renewed discussion of gun control in light of Tuesday’s elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Levin called for the celebration of Judeo-Christian principles during The Mark Levin Show on Tuesday evening.
“I think a little bit more faith would help in the schools and in the public square,” Levin said. “It’s not such a terrible thing, and yet, we have secularized everything. I think a little bit more respect for the American people in the media rather than bringing on racists, some bigots who push their agenda. Couldn’t hurt.”
Levin blasted the disrespect and attacks toward families and faith.
“The culture in so many respects has been devoured,” he said.
The host, though, said there is “no simple answer to these things.”
“We need to celebrate Americanism. We need to celebrate the Judeo-Christian principles that went into the founding of this nation. And if you’re not Jewish, you’re not Christian, there’s no reason to take offense. You came here — a family member came here because of the nature of the country,” Levin said. “You don’t have to be Jewish or Christian, but facts are facts. It was founded on a Judeo-Christian belief system which embraces Western civilization and the Renaissance, the Reformation, and all these things.”
“It’s not so terrible to have a prayer in school, is it? Even a silent prayer. To think about a higher authority, learn the Ten Commandments,” he said. “Ten Commandments are common sense.”
Levin also called for greater funding of security at schools but said that politics would not solve the problem.
“This is not so easily addressed by politics — ‘let’s pass a law,’” he said in addressing shooters who target schools, public gatherings, and law enforcement. “These lunatics don’t really care what laws you pass, and if they had mental health issues, they don’t even know what laws you passed. It’s of no consequence.”
At least 21 people, including 19 children and two teachers, died in the Texas elementary school shooting Tuesday. The shooter was killed at the scene by law enforcement officials.
