We've all heard of the horrific shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue. At this point, eleven people have been murdered. Several others are wounded. The gunman is in custody. The hatred and evil that he spewed is nauseating. The results of his hatred remind us why Christ told us that not killing is one thing, but Raca and Fool are worthy of judgement and the fires of Hell.
Prayers for those who have perished, and may God give strength and peace to their loved ones in the coming days, weeks, months and years. May the Lord use this to bring peace and love to this troubled land. May it not be exploited, or worse, used to justify more hate and evil. The antisemitism that has plagued the Christian world for far too many centuries must end. May God, through His grace, help us overcome this blight upon the witness of the Church, and the heart and soul of our modern world.
