Re: Murdering of Pastors
I think there are a lot of disconnected people out there. Social ties to family or church are at a low point, and angry people see pastors as someone to lash out at. The ministers are after all a focal point in their communities just by the fact that they bring people together to worship. Some of the assailants may resent the attention the pastor gets, "why isn't anyone paying attention to me?", some have come to hate anything of a religious nature, and some undoubtedly have mental issues. Sadly, all this shows me is even more troubled times ahead.
