Albert Mohler: An Act Of Pure Evil

Headlines

The news from Las Vegas is heartbreaking. A lone killer staked out a position 32 floors above ground and then aimed powerful weapons at a massive crowd gathered for a music festival and then killed himself as police stormed his hotel room. More than 50 people are dead and hundreds are wounded.

Already, this horrific scene is described as the worst mass shooting in American history. Authorities warn that the death toll will rise.

President Donald Trump was absolutely right when he called the attack “an act of pure evil,” for evil it was, undiluted and undisguised. Even in an age of moral confusion, Americans can still know evil when they see it, now through a veil of tears.

We will know more in days and hours to come. Right now, we know that the right thing is to pray for grieving families and the healing of our land. And the right thing is to call evil what it is, and not hide our faces from the truth.

Lanhee Chen: The Terror Threat Is Real

Tax Reform

In the last week alone, terrorists have attacked or attempted to attack targets in European nations we call allies and friends. One of the main railway stations in Brussels, Belgium was targeted. So too were innocent civilians on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

These attempts came on the heels of deadly attacks in London and Manchester, and recent attacks in Stockholm, Berlin, and Nice.

The threat of radical jihadist terrorism is real. And if we are naïve enough to believe that the terrorists are only interested in attacking European nations, shame on us. They’d love nothing more than to successfully attack the American homeland.

That’s why, for all of the threats we face around the world, none is more significant than the one that we face from radical Islamic terrorism. The intelligence community and law enforcement has have done a superb job of keeping Americans safe since 9/11. Lawmakers should make sure they have everything they need for success. And the Trump Administration should continue to devote time, effort, and resources to neutralizing and, eventually, defeating this threat.
