We as nation have failed

People have every kind of reasons to give for the sick killers that are among us at this time.
There are many reasons that we are faced with sickness in this nation, and it will continue until we have a change of the family structure, change in the courts, change about how the nation feels about religion.
Forty years ago the family was made up with a father in the home. Now, single moms are trying to be mom and pop to the children, and it’s not working.
The courts have taken the Bible and prayer out of public schools, and the results are showing up to be bad decisions. Neither the media nor anyone else has asked the questions: How many of the killers had prayer in their homes, or how many of the killers went to church?
This should tell us where we as a nation have failed. We will continue to see more of the same thing in the future unless the politicians stop blaming guns and get to the root of the problem. Atheists seem to have more power over this nation than Christians. Why?
