Horrible massacres of children, worse than Sandy Hook

Nine days after the horrible slaughter of 20 children, ages 6-7, and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut, America is still reeling and grieving.

Every day across this veil of tears we call Earth, human beings are killed and murdered. We are no longer shocked or outraged, accepting that as routine. But not when the victims are little children. Thankfully, we are still capable of being jolted from life-as-usual by the slaughter of innocents.

While the cold-blooded murder of 20 little kiddies in an elementary school in Connecticut, each reportedly was shot 11 times by devil-worshipper Adam Lanza, is unimaginably horrific, a pastor reminds us of other even more horrible child-murders, both past and present.

In his Dec. 23, 2012 essay for News-Leader.com, “Once again, mankind faces Satan,” Bob Johnson, pastor of Ozark Mountain Assembly of God in Kimberling City, reminds us of these other slaughters of innocents:

1. King Herod’s slaughter of all infants, age 2 and younger

Killing of Innocents by Herod (by Leon Cogniet, 1824~Killing of Innocents by Herod (oil painting by Leon Cogniet, 1824)~

After learning from the three wise men, of the birth of the one destined to be the King of the Jews, “Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the wise men, was exceedingly angry, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the region thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.” Matthew 2:16

Only God knows how many baby boys were torn from their mothers’ arms and thrown into the Nile River.

2. The Nazis’ slaughter of Jewish children

In Jerusalem, alongside the Holocaust Memorial is the Children’s Memorial. As one walks through the semi-darkness of that memorial, the names, ages and countries of a million children who were murdered by the Nazis, are read. Lighting the darkness are the flickering flames of scores of candles representing the young lives that were snuffed out.

3. Islamic jihadists’ use of children as suicide bombers

Children and women are also used as suicide bombers

In recent years, psychopathic Muslims intent on jihad, are using children as suicide bombers, strapping them with bombs and sending them to blow up buses and other public places. Field trips by schoolchildren in Israel are accompanied by armed guards. The latest such attack was the targeting of a school bus with an anti-tank rocket.

4. The slaughter of innocents in the womb

By far, the most dangerous location for children in America is not our schools. The most dangerous location for our children is the womb. Since Roe v. Wade, more than 55 million unborn children had been aborted — suctioned out, scraped out, poisoned, strangled in “late-term or partial-birth abortions” as their heads emerge from the birth canal, or simply left to die from dehydration and starvation if they somehow survived a late-term abortion.

Why aren’t we shocked, outraged, saddened, and grieving about these other slaughters of innocents?

  1. Eowyn… I so agree with the outrage of children being killed. When the whole country went into mourning for those little angels that were killed in CT. I posted something on FB regarding my feelings of the bigger picture here…where millions of babies have been killed because of choice. Well it certainly was not God’s choice or the choice of that precious baby, only the choice of someone selfish and devoid of love… I grieve for all children who are killed, but mostly for the babies. May these murderers open their eyes and ask God for forgiveness as they change their hearts. Our God is an awesome God and will forgive their sins …all they have to do is ask for his Grace. But sadly I believe that most of these monsters that perform this despicable act do not believe in the miracle of Christ’s birth and the fact that he died for our sins..past..present..and future.. My wish for everyone is to accept the present that was given to us… God’s only begotten Son… Become involved in programs that help unwed moms to give them support… Pair up with a mother to be and tell her she is loved beyond all understanding..and that they are doing the right thing.. Be there for her if she makes the decision to give her baby up for adoption… Don’t condemn …just love on her… I believe in my heart that women who discard a baby do not know real love.. We need to Shepard these women in love.. If we can save one baby it is so worth it.. Yes I choose life…

    As we greive what happened a little over two weeks ago, let us also remember these…

  3. Heartbreaking! A total abomination to God! We can’t even protect our children!

  4. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most important post. 55 million children slaughtered through abortion, and this killing is not only ignored, but encouraged by this evil administration. Mother Teresa of Calcutta told the world that abortion is the greatest evil of the times!

  5. Thanks Dr. Eowyn,
    Herod and Pharaoh would blush at how insignificant their crimes were compared to Planned Parenthood.

  6. …but all the Liberals would rather put the attention on guns and not the people that do these horrible things. SHAME on THEM!.

  7. Dr. Eowyn: You make some very great points. Amen! I think you should also include all the examples of Communists who have killed and murdered millions of children also, along with the Nazis. Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot and countless other God-hating Communists are great examples of mass murders of children along with Red China and several other Communist nations.
    Sandy Hook is another mass murder scene of 26 people caused by the liberal gun control laws of the liberals. The school is a gun-free zone, about the only place mass murderers go to start shooting. Chalk up more people dying to gun control laws and gun free zones.
