What is former Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz doing these days? In addition to working as a political analyst for FOX News Channel and Fox Business Network, he has begun preaching to the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting.

A gunman carrying an AR-15 walked into the school that kicked him out and destroyed 14 students and three staff members. Another 14 kids were wounded, but survived. The gun is a semi-automatic weapon of war meant specifically for killing, not hunting, because it blows the animal to smithereens.

A radiologists at the hospital where the victims were taken said that an organ hit by a regular bullet shows a gray path along its track through the body. On the other hand, when the AR-15 hits an organ, it looks like a melon crushed by a sledge-hammer.

The survivors of the shooting have channeled their grief and anger into changing this country’s lax gun laws. They have organized rallies, including a huge one in Washington, D.C. later this month. The students have also met with members of Congress, appeared on news talk shows, and staged walkouts. These kids even met with Donald Trump.

They are earnest, well-spoken, and determined. They are not afraid of the National Rifle Association (NRA), and the powerful lobbying organization has been fighting back in ugly ways.

Chaffetz has decided that the survivors of the largest high school shooting in America need a “belief in God and Jesus Christ.” He said on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom:

‘I think of those kids who went back to school today after that horrific shooting, and they need something more. They need a belief in God and Jesus Christ. I think that would help.’

The former congressman’s statement was interesting, because it assumes that the survivors do not have a belief in God and Jesus Christ. In addition, it sounds extremely reminiscent of the “thoughts and prayers” that members of the House and Senate have been offering the kids — instead of actions toward gun control.

The former representative said:

‘We need more good news, more good message, more of the good word reaching out to America.’

Chaffetz’s response was to a question asking about lawmakers pausing to reflect on evangelist Billy Graham’s life. He died February 21. The former representative said:

‘I’m proud of the speaker and the majority leader and everybody who supported this, to make this happen. Rev. Graham impacted millions of lives.’
