The Only Comment on Shooter’s Facebook Page!

 fbDylann Roof entered a historic Charleston Church on Wednesday evening and sat through a prayer meeting for nearly an hour, according to sources. Then Roof proceeded to kill 9 people, including the pastor of the church. Since his name has been released thousands have flooded the Facebook trying to find his page, which has now been deactivated.

Marcus Stanley is a 30-year-old gospel musician from Virginia, who knows what it is like to go under fire. According to his website:

Marcus was shot 8 times at point blank range with a .45 caliber automatic weapon while touring as an initiation act by gang members. Due to the shooting, Marcus became temporarily paralyzed on his right side, lost the ability to walk, and leaving one bullet permanent lodged near his spine. With God’s grace and mercy, Marcus was successfully able to regain the strength to walk and recover most of the feeling in his right arm.

Just before the authorities captured the suspect, Stanley also searched for Dylann Roof’s Facebook page — just before it was deactivated.  He quickly shared a message that may shock you!

Today countless tweets, updates and comments have been posted all over the internet. Many of them are filled with hate. Let this one example of compassion remind us that this terrible tragedy could receive any label, but let it receive the label of overcoming evil with good.

During the recording of This Week in Youth Ministry Podcast earlier today, we paused to memorialize those who lost their lives so tragically in Charleston.  (The podcast will air later today, June 18, 2015).
