Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theorists Make Me Wanna Puke

The aftermath of the tragic shooting in Connecticut last month has taken an ugly and hate-filled turn. Conspiracy theorists are accusing the grieving families of having made the whole thing up. I’d like to find those people and throw up all over their shoes.

I had intended this post to get into passage after passage of Scripture about people who believe crazy things. That’s not what eventually came to me, though. Instead, I look to these few simple words from Jesus to those who refuse the truth:

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44.)

    Very sick. One line from the article you linked intrigued me: “Conspiracy theorists prefer complex mysteries over simple truths, and find mystery where none exists.” There is a place for mystery and paradox in life but sometimes it’s just a blatant case of truth vs. lies. You called it, Tim.

    • Tim says:

      Thanks, Jeannie. Whether it’s the 9/11 deniers or the birthers or this latest set of conspiracy theorists, I think it’s a problem that predates out time. I think of the Gnostics who insisted that there was more to Christianity than the simple Gospel, the good news that Jesus is who he says he is and he did what he said he’d do for us.

        Or Holocaust deniers. And I have Jewish friends, so it takes all I can do not to pull a Buzz Aldrin when I meet one of those. X-P

        • Tim says:

          Seriously, right? Just because it happened before they were born they think it’s fair game to re-write the first-hand accounts of those who were there.

    That makes me sick too. It also makes me sick to read about people claiming to be family members of victims so they can claim money. Come, Jesus, Come.

  3. Seems some people will go to any length to take center ground. Thanks for posting this!

  4. From the article you linked to:
    ” In 2002, when conspiracy theorist Bart Sibrel confronted astronaut Buzz Aldrin and called him a “coward and a liar” for faking the moon landings, the 72-year-old promptly punched Sibrel in the face.”
    (!)
    So much is left out of the history books . . .

  5. They will make you puke-trust me!

    They are thick in my area. When they claim they are taking the heat from the FBI,CIA, and NSA so you don’t have to is an oxy-moron in itself.

    They relish in the theater of the absurd. Why? Because actors are what they try to be.

    Most of their members are from military bases or have been in the military. That’s about the only place you find this kind of crap.

    OMG! They are poisoning our children through poultry and making them sexual at an earlier age!
    OMG! If we don’t terrorize people, they’ll never be able to make it on their own.
    OMG! IF we don’t create an enemy, then there’s nothing to fight about.

    They continue their stalking in Arizona even though they are not wanted there.

    Their goal: save government money by stalking, threatening, and terrorizing people into spying for them so they can cash in on their illegal activities. They try to force people into fake charity drives when the police should be doing their job. Why? So they monopolize the legal system.

    Welcome to your new home! You’ll be monitored and harassed daily from us. Why? So we can pscyobabble and rid the world of all evil. Report back to the moron patrol-that’s the system.

    They threaten your friends;threaten your family even driving long distances to do so.They jump fences and damage your property. They damage your vehicle. Then they start on your neighbors.
    Just a few days ago I caught one stalking my neighbor when she went out at wee hours. She did it twice and every time she went back in a car drove by-same car.

    They flash spotlights at your house. Dig through trash. Get mail out of your mailbox so you’ll think the postman is doing it.

    It’s easy to see it’s for political gain by raising a pseudo religion to rail against.

    Who invented God? They did!

    Who invented Satan? They did!

    Always training and instructing for a better human beyond reproach.

    • Tim says:

      No one invented God, TB. He is the eternal one, the creator of all, without beginning and without end. God is who he is without reference to anyone else, even conspiracy theorists.

  6. I will say though Tim, that there are loads of footage of interviews with some of the parents of the children who were killed and they act upset but I haven’t seen one tear fall from their eyes, and as a parent I can’t comprehend that. Also, one of the fathers laughed and joked and then had to get into a sad mode before talking about his daughter that was killed. Very sketchy when you just observe the interviews. I am not saying that these people are not dead at all, but everything Rob and I have been observing is extremely strange (stories changing constantly, lack of evidence, the way the parents are acting, etc)….but I compare most things like this to Columbine since that happened when I was a freshman in high school and it was so very differently handled (and parents were far too upset to even want to be interviewed yet these children’s parents are jumping at the chance for screen time).
