Lakeland, FL man opens fire in church
« on: September 19, 2011, 07:12:33 PM »
A church in Lakeland, Florida, was a scene of horror on Sunday, as a former member of the church walked into the building, took out a gun and opened fire. Jeremiah Fogel, the alleged shooter, was accosted by parishioners. Fogel's wife was shot and killed at home.

From the article:
"Pastor William Boss was shot once in the head," Judd said. "At that time everyone jumped up, and he went over to the left side of the church and shot the assistant minister Carl Stewart three times."

After Fogel opened fire, parishioners Derek Foster and Corey Reid grabbed the gun from him, hit him in the head with a nightstand and held him to the ground, according to Judd.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.


And if I seem a little strange, well, that's because I am

Lord have mercy  :(
Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

"Lord have mercy."
