There was a remarkable event that happened when the family of those slain by Dylann Roof confronted him as he appeared in court today.
Many saw it as the highest expression of Christianity – those forgiving a monster who had taken their loved ones away and caused them so much pain. It really is an amazing manifestation of the mercy of God. I honestly don’t think I could have that much strength to do the same only a day after the killings.
Even this witless liberal degenerate had to acknowledge it:
I was raised a Christian and what was just on display was the core of what I still love about the faith & am thankful for being raised in it
