Florida teen murders street preachers
“There is a growing hatred against Christians in this country. More and more people are becoming intolerant. This is a very clear case of hate crime against Christians.”
02/11/2010 United States (MNN)- Everyday hundreds of people fall victim to street violence in the US . On the evening of Jan. 30, Steven Ocean , 23, and Titus Sifra, 24, became victims as well when Jeriah Woody, 18, shot and killed them at point-blank range after they shared the message of Christ with him, according to a witness.
However, although the case is almost two weeks old now, there has been little media coverage.
Voice of the Martyrs Todd Netttleton says, “If this had been two Muslims out sharing the Quran and talking to people about Mohammad and they were shot and killed, there would be marches, there would be protest, there would be 24 hour coverage. As a Christian, that’s a frustrating thing that the media doesn’t seem to want to pay attention to incidents where Christians are targeted.”
Jonathon Racho with International Christian Concern says these events would make headlines all over the nation with countless politicians adding their comments about the event.
“There is a growing hatred against Christians in this country. More and more people are becoming intolerant. This is a very clear case of hate crime against Christians,” he said.
