It is interesting that he would say this considering something similar happened not too long ago at an Amish school. I am quite certain that prayer and god was a a significant part of their curriculum. Did they not pray enough? Did they not pray in the correct way? Or wait, I know, the devil caused that one because they prayed too much. How incredibly insensitive and arrogant of him to imply that it is our fault not that of a singular, disturbed individual. I think it is nearly impossible for people like him to believe that no matter how much you pray, go to church, do good deeds, give money to the church or help others, bad things still happen. They can't blame god so they blame everyone/everything else. It makes me so sad and angry that I can barely think straight.

“[W]e’ve made it a place where we don’t want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability — that we’re not just going to have be accountable to the police if they catch us, but one day we stand before, you know, a holy God in judgment,” Huckabee said. “If we don’t believe that, then we don’t fear that.”
He said those suffering from a crisis from faith should look to God in the community’s response to the violence. But he added that “Maybe we ought to let [God] in on the front end and we wouldn’t have to call him to show up when it’s all said and done at the back end.”
