This week on CNN, host Chris Cuomo said that offering thoughts and prayers after a shooting makes a mockery of the victims. The subtext of Cuomo’s message seems to be that prayer is pointless and gun control is good.

Unhinged: CNN’s Cuomo Lectures Voters on Gun Control, Attacks Prayer
On Thursday’s Cuomo Prime Time, CNN host Chris Cuomo ended his show with a commentary in which he complained about voters not makng gun control a higher priority when they voted a few days ago. He also declared that politicians who express “thoughts and prayers” after a mass shooting are mocking the victims…
He soon added: “Anyone being honest must answer the central question the same way. And here’s the question: Can we do better than this. You know the answer is yes. You know the damn answer is yes.”
So why don’t we? We can’t we even have a conversation? The only consensus there is, is in a canard, and here it is: ‘First, I would like to offer thoughts and prayers,’ because that’s what you do when you offer thoughts and prayers. You mock those who lost loved ones because if you gave it any thought at all, you would never walk away from any of these without figuring out a better way to deal with them.
