“… IF GOD CAN’T PROTECT A CHURCH, WHERE CAN HE PROTECT?”
|| By FITSNEWS || In times of tragedy, lots of people – even non-religious people – turn to prayer. And in the aftermath of this week’s deadly Charleston, S.C. church shooting, thousands did just that.
“I prayed for the first time in a long time,” one of our friends confided to us. “I did not know what else to do.”
That’s an entirely appropriate reaction in the face of unfathomable evil. Tragedies like this are far bigger than us – or our capacity for understanding – and they rightly/ reflexively compel us to seek out a higher power (and a higher wisdom) as our feeble brains try to make sense of things.
Unless of course you don’t believe a higher power exists …
Take the “secular humanist” response to the Charleston tragedy – which left nine people (including S.C. Senator Clementa Pinckney and his sister) dead.

Make note of the time stamp, too. This individual felt the need to offer her commentary roughly an hour after news of the shooting first broke.
