Pastor Dead After Shooting at a First Baptist Church in Illinois
Sunday, March 08, 2009

An Illinois pastor used the Bible he was reading out of to shield himself from bullets being pumped at him from an unknown gunman who opened fire during Sunday services at the First Baptist Church in Maryville, Ill.

Senior Pastor Fred Winters was preaching during the 8 a.m. service when a man entered the church, walked down the aisle and started shooting, a parishioner told FOX News. Four others were also reportedly shot.

Winters was shot three times, police said. He died at Anderson Hospital, a spokeswoman told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Five other people were taken to local hospitals.

I'm sure there is a dump thread about how the man deserved it for being some sort of evil conservative Christian . . .

I hope not.

This is really sad and tragic. Sad for the congregation and tragic for the minister and his family. :(

You have an optimistic view of DU.

It is sad that some people have to resort to violence and murder to even some perceived score.

Conservative? No.

Unsubstantiated belief that he was a child molester? Yes. (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x5209637)

Anyone who believes the DUmp is anything other than a hate fest of anything dealing with religion (Islam excepted) needs to have their head examined.

I guess DU only supports non-Christian child molestation or perhaps he needed to be convicted before they could rally the troops around him. It amazing but DU supports child molesters yet is totally for killing off their supply of children.
