From the Washington Post.
Witnesses... said he seemed to seek specific revenge against Christians, and police examined Web posts that hinted of wider antipathy toward organized faith...
In one classroom, he appeared to single out Christian students for killing, according to witness Anastasia Boylan.
“He said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,'” Boylan’s father, Stacy, told CNN, relaying his daughter’s account while she underwent surgery to treat a gunshot to her spine.
“And then he shot and killed them.”
Another account came from Autumn Vicari, who described to NBC News what her brother J.J. witnessed in the room where the shootings occurred. According to NBC: “Vicari said at one point the shooter told people to stand up before asking whether they were Christian or not. Vicari’s brother told her that anyone who responded ‘yes’ was shot in the head. If they said ‘other’ or didn’t answer, they were shot elsewhere in the body, usually the leg.”Cardinal George of Chicago famously said 'I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison, and his successor will die a martyr in the streets.' We already have a Christian sent to jail for her beliefs--more will follow. And we now have Christian martyrs in America. There will be many more.
Do you think I exaggerate? The 20th century gave us more Christian martyrs than all of the martyrs of the past 2000 years combined. The Soviets, the Nazis, the Spanish communists, the Mexican government in the Christeros War deliberately slaughtered Christians by the millions.
Christians are undergoing a holocaust today in the Middle East, while the world, including our own government, is silent.
May God bless our brothers and sisters who are perishing for their faith in Christ our Lord. They are with Him now, in paradise. May we live with even a tiny fraction of their courage and faith.
