In the aftermath of the spa shootings near Atlanta yesterday, pastors across the nation are reckoning with how the shooter could do something so horrific when, as far as we know, he was a devoted member of his faith.
So far, we know a high school classmate has said Robert Aaron Long was “big into religion,” a neighbor said he came from “a good Christian family,” and the Crabapple First Baptist Church in Milton once celebrated his journey to baptism in a now-deleted Facebook post.
All that’s to say pastors will have a hard time pretending Long lacked faith. All signs suggest he was surrounded by it. So how will they grapple with that reality?
I'd say that FIRST on the list will be the most expensive Lawyer ( Liar) that money can buy, Second will be a Plea of Momentary Insanity POSSIBLY caused by misplaced religious fervour and then Third will be an earnest plea for clemency based on as much bullshit as they can dream up.
I live in Cherokee County Ga not far from where the school shooter lives. I feel like i can give a little insight into this. I think alot of christians are saddened by this but i also think alot of christians kinda think the asian massage parlor deserved it because of the sex trade they were in. They sinned against god and got what they deserved which is sad because no one deserved this no matter what they do.
