The Rev. Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, called in to the American Family Association's radio show on Friday to talk about last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, reports RightWing Watch.org (video below).
Rev. Graham did not blame the mass shooting on gunman Adam Lanza or the easy availability of guns in the U.S., but did place blame on the fictional violence in TV, music, video games and the removal of God from schools and public places.
Rev. Graham said: "These politicians in Washington, we've taken God out of our school, we've taken him out of our government and now we seem shocked at all of these things. Why are we shocked? We shouldn't be shocked. This is what happens when a society turns its back on God."
