Right-wingers who want to blame a liberal culture of enforced godlessness for what happened at Virginia Tech ought to know this about the shooter's sister, Sun-kyung Cho, who attended Princeton:

For nearly two years, Alan Oquendo ate meals with her almost every night. He remembers "a very humble person," a deeply spiritual woman who did not smoke or drink and wore little makeup. She worked at the college library and spent much of her spare time at prayer meetings and Friday night Bible studies with the Princeton Evangelical Fellowship.

As we learn from that article, in the Los Angeles Times, and this one in The New York Times, the Chos were churchgoing Christians. And there was Sun-kyung Cho, in the belly of the Eastern liberal establishment beast, and yet the totalitarian thugs of progressive culture couldn't prevent her from clinging to her faith in God and embracing evangelical Christianity.

So why should we be blamed (as Newt Gingrich was blaming us just now in an interview with George Stephanopoulos) for what her brother did?


UPDATE: Crooks and Liars has video and a transcript of that Gingrich appearance.
