Another shooter targets Christians.

Twenty-year-old gunman Christopher Mercer killed at least nine people, wounding several others at an Oregon Community College. Witnesses reported that his victims were lined up and asked if they were Christians. If they said yes, they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs.

The Obama administration gave their standard response calling for gun control
–to disarm law-abiding citizens.

What should our response be? First, we must recognize that these killings were targeted hate crimes against Christians. Maybe instead of constantly berating Christians for their faith, sending them to jail for practicing it, we should be calling for more tolerance for those who profess the name of Christ.
