  2. From the looks of his eyebrows and lips that pastor looks gay, not that I condone murder but being gay could have been the motive for his murder.

    • Really you can tell sexuality basked on a look? You are amazing! Wow. You have a super power. So I guess it is okay when white cops look at black people and say by his forehead and eyes I could tell he was a criminal? They are therefore justified in killing us? If he did something wrong the truth will be revealed. The bible does not lie: what is done in darkness will come to light. He would then be held accountable. If not by us the only One who should judge. Something is wrong with you.

      • Really. The problem we are having in this country is that we cover things to much and fail to uncover for a resolution. How many times have you looked at something and made a decision based off soley looks and took pride in doing so. If someone leaves a comment that was clearly not offending but trying to understand the reason for the murder and that offended you, to the point where you start to twist words and use scenarios that don't apply to draw attention away from the comment,shows that there maybe some truth to what was said. The comment never condoned the killing on the base of being gay. No body deserves to die but if people are being killed because of there sexual orientation we need to pay attention to that as well. What you should be more concerned about is that is not fearful of God enough to not commit a murder in church or that they specifically came for him, what's the message.
