When Evil is not enough: Pinning the Loughner Profile on Conservative Mind Thought

Jared Lee Loughner, 22, has killed six people, including a nine year old girl and a Federal judge. He wounded 12 including, US Representative Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democrat. The liberal media is trying to make sense of the assassination attempt by implying that Loughner was a right wing, Bible-banging, TEA Party-type person. But the facts about this young man will prove much different. A YouTube video posted under the killer's account that The Daily Jot investigated says that he does not trust in God. The site also said that others referring to Loughner as a terrorist was Ad hominem, likely meaning that the comparison was "to the person," or correct.

From that video, I can discern that this man was not a Christian. He identified himself as someone who did not agree with the government. And he identified himself as some self-tailored terrorist, saying, "Thus the argument to call me a terrorist is ad hominem." He wrote, "Every United States Military recruit at MEPS in Phoenix is receiving one mini bible before the tests...I didn't write a belief on my Army application, and the recruiter wrote on the application: None." He further says, "The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar. No! I won't pay debt with a currency that's not backed by gold and silver! No! I won't trust in God!"

Haaretz, an Israeli news outlet, is reporting that Congresswoman Giffords is Jewish and that Loughner had posted on his now-removed Facebook and MySpace pages that his favorite books and readings were Hitler's Mein Kampf and the Communist Manifesto. Laughner was rejected from the US Military in 2008. He was booted from Pima Community College in September and was told that he would require mental clearance if he wanted to return--this according to the New York Times. His high school classmates say he was a user of marijuana and was obsessed with the Mayan calendar that predicted the end of the world in 2012, that his politics were liberal and that he was generally very disturbed.

When these tragedies occur, the news media tries to make them a political or religious deed, when in reality they may just be the result of evil that has befallen this day and age. The fact is, evil doesn't need a religion or a political party to commit its deeds. The word "evil" appears in some 568 verses of the Bible. In John 3:19, Jesus says of those not believing in the Son of God, "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil." When evil rises up as it has in Tucson, it shows us all how much work we have before us as Christians. We live in a dark and dying world, but we are to be the champions of the one true light--Jesus Christ.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
