Police Dept. Blames Murders on Godlessness, Gets Criticized

A rural Alabama police department is being applauded and criticized for blaming a series of murders on young people who rejected God.
The police department in Opp, Ala., posted a message on its Facebook page Tuesday noting that five people have been murdered in the county in 2018. Among these was a mother shot and killed Monday and a man who was killed the previous day. “Young people,” the message said, were the murderers.
“This is happening because we have turned away from God and embraced Satan,” the message, written in all-caps, read. “We may have not meant to do so but, we have. It is time to ask for God’s help to stop this. It is time to be parents and raise our children, not have them raise us. It is time to fully support law enforcement and stand by the officers and deputies that are far too often having to walk into these dangerous situations and clean up the mess.”
The atheist Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) said the police department’s post crossed a line.
At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
