Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner on Tuesday described to their radio listeners a shooting massacre in Connecticut as a rougher “rebellion against God” than gay marriage.

Gunman Adam Lanza, 20, on Friday forced his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and killed 27 people, including 20 children, before taking his own life.

Despite the fact that Lanza was homeschooled, Swanson and Buehner, strong homeschooling advocates, also blamed the shooting on the public school system.

“It is interesting that this is probably one of the most shocking experiences; America has been stunned by what happened,” Swanson said on Generations Radio. “I think there is still somewhat of a conscience. There may not be a conscience about killing the unborn children, there may not be as much of a conscience of killing twenty-seven year olds. But apparently when these bodies of little six and seven year olds riddled by bullets are being examined by the experts, hundreds of thousands and millions of people in America are still somewhat stunned. Apparently they have some level of moral outrage left for the slaughter of the innocents in Newtown, Connecticut.”

“I think you're exactly right,” Buehner said. “The liberals are proposing that we as a nation follow a kinder, gentler flavor of rebellion against God. They'd like a rebellion that stops a little short of murdering kindergartners. They want the rebellion that involves gay marriage; they want the rebellion that embraces rape and abortion and a media that is in utter defiance against the law of God. That's the kind of society they want; they want a society that's in rebellion but not that much rebellion.”

Swanson agreed.
