Quote:Today, people say, "Aren’t you sad that 50 sodomites died?" Here’s the problem with that. It’s like the equivalent of asking me, what if you asked me, "Hey, are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today?"
Um, no, I think that’s great. I think that helps society! I think Orlando, Florida is a little safer tonight.
The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die ...
Why didn't you quote the rest of the article?
"Megachurch Pastor Perry Noble of the NewSpring Church in South Carolina had a different take on the tragedy, which he posted in a video on Facebook on June 12.
Noble said the Orlando massacre had nothing to do with gun control or gay people:
I don't think this is a gun control issue. I don't think this is a gay issue. I don't think, even if you really want to boil it down, this is a religious issue.
I think it's a heart issue. I think the biggest problem in our world today isn't anything that we can legislate or pass a law against.
The biggest problem in our world today is there are people who literally don't have a heart connection with Jesus Christ. And when people don't have a heart connection with Jesus, the possibilities for evil are endless."
This is a more authentic, actually Christian look at the tragedy.
Of course it's not a gun issue or a gay issue, nor is it a heart issue.
It's a mental health issue, a cultural issue, a media issue, an objective... the list goes on.
