Pastor Larry Bradford had a Christmas message ready for Sunday’s service at Woodbridge Community Church, but once he heard about the mass killings in Newtown, Conn., he decided to ditch his original sermon.

Bradford canceled the planned singing, music and children’s classes due to the tragedy in Connecticut.

    Matt Duerr sounds an awful lot like the folks at Westboro Baptist Church, praising a god who approves murdering innocent children in retribution for the perceived "sins" of adults.

    - and so Christ was born . You are correct - We have a loving God . All we have to do is believe so he can bring his children home.

    Dave Howard should be careful what he wishes for when he asks for a political party to move in and start banning anything. Interesting, though, he asks the Democrats to come to his rescue. Regarding stupid kids, we had eight years of Bush's Texas-lead "No Child Left Behind". Kids should be smarter than ever, now that they have been taught creationism and that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the ignorant world science community.

    If the dems want to ban anything it should be these stupid
    video shootum up games.
    We have too many stupid kids now days.

    Disgusting, Mr. Duerr.

    This is the type of comment I would expect from Pat Robertson and, as Mr. Diskin stated, Mike Huckabee (who is one of the biggest hypocrites in his own right).

    I believe in a loving God, not a God of revenge and hate.

    Shame, shame shame!

    Shame on you, Matt Duerr, for turning this awful tragedy into a political opportunity to override the First Amendment... for claiming that your loving and righteous God would make an example out of 20 innocent children.

    You're just as bad as Mike Huckabee who publically stated, "Should we be so surprised that schools have become a place for carnage because we've made it a place where we don't want to talk about eternity, life, responsibility, accountability?"

    "We got what we asked for." Really, Matt? Really?

    Your thoughts, and Huckabees, are both sick and disgusting.
