Brian Rohrbough, the father of Dan Rohrbough, gives an account of April 20th 1990, the day of the Columbine Massacre. This is an excerpt from “INDOCTRINATION, public schools and the decline of Christianity in America“. (click here for link) I highly X 100 recommend that you beg, borrow or steal a copy of this documentary if you are a Christian with children in the public school system.
Transcript of Brian Rohrbough and “Indoctrination” producer, Collin Gunn
On the morning of April 20th, before noon, I received a phone call. And in a panic stricken voice, Dan’s mom said to me “Brian, have you heard from Dan, do you know what’s going on?”.
And I said “no”.
And she told me that two gunmen had entered Columbine High School with machine guns and hand-grenades and they were killing kids. And so me and my co-worker dropped what we were doing and we headed toward the school, and we got to where we could look across the park and we could see the school. And there were two police cars parked there blocking our way and we couldn’t go any further. And we stood there, watching, and a lady burst out a front door and she was screaming and crying, and she said to the police “save that boy, do something, save that boy!” and that’s really where I realized how bad things were.
We heard they were going to start bringing school buses, and the first bus came and I watched as the kids got off and they would run to their parents and they would cry and they would hug. And all to often I heard this hollow promise that you’ll never set foot in that school again. When the last bus came…when the last bus came, it was empty.
When the next morning came, we opened the newspaper, and there was a picture… of a young man… wearing green… a green shirt, and bluejeans…, (chocking) lying dead on the sidewalk, was my son
That was… our only notification.
I knew how bad the public schools were, and I knew that because I was in the public schools. And as parents I think that we want to believe that things have gotten better, when in fact they have gotten much worse. It was my responsibility to make sure that my son was safe, that he was educated properly, but I failed that. I put him in a pagan school where they teach there is no God, there is no creation. There’s evolution based on a cosmic accident. And evolution breaks down to one simple belief, and that is that the strong kill the weak as a form of survival and that there’s nothing wrong with that.
“Both of the killers Klebold and Harris had received good grades from their Columbine High teachers for their graphically violent writings. They showed their violent videos in the classroom with approval. One of them wore a tee shirt brazened with the words ‘Natural Selection’, the other with the word ‘wrath’.”
Ideas do have consequences.”
They had taken evolution much further than most people do, but if you stop and think through it, their logic was correct, if evolution is true, and yet it is taught in the school… and I put my son there. Even though I’m a Christian… so, when we talk about my son’s murder, yes it’s right to condemn these two murderers, it’s right to condemn this school system that taught these wicked things, but you must remember, I am the one who put him there, and I am the one who is responsible for his death.
