"San Bernardino Massacre"

The New York Daily News sparked controversy Thursday with their decision to run this jarring headline

"God Isn't Fixing This."

The front-page, mega-font screamer was in response to tweeted prayer requests for San Bernardino's mass shooting victims made by GOP presidential candidates.

"Meaningless platitudes" of "cowards" is how the newspaper characterized the prayers of Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul. Each candidate tweeted a slightly different version of this statement:
"Praying for the victims, their families and the first responders in the wake of this tragic shooting."
And for this they are called "cowards".

The massacre at the Inland Regional Center on Wednesday killed 14 innocent people and wounded 21 more.

SWAT teams swarmed neighborhoods, people cowered in closets and schools went on lock down, while a four-hour manhunt ended in a bloodbath on a residential street.

Meanwhile, authorities can't determine a motive: workplace violence or terrorism? (Not to mention the suspects had a garage full of explosives and were known Islamic extremists)

The New York Daily News, while wrong to call prayer "meaningless platitudes" and the candidates "cowards" for engaging in it, may actually be right about one thing:

We can't expect God to fix this if we, as a nation, aren't willing to return to Him.

A wise man once said: "We turn to God for help when our foundations are shaking only to learn that it is God shaking them."  -- Charles C. West, author

"I open My arms to My own people all day long, but they have rebelled. They follow their own evil paths and thoughts. All day long they insult Me to My face..."  Isaiah 65:2-3
