Texas church pastor says he forgives shooter
The pastor of Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church, who lost a daughter in the mass killing spree, has forgiven the attacker.
“This past weekend our country was attacked, our state was attacked, our church was attacked,” Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy told the standing-room-only crowd Sunday.
“We celebrate and remember the veterans who fought and died so that we can have freedom in this country. But last weekend, men, women and children also fought and died for the freedom we have here this morning. We have the freedom to proclaim Christ. Folks, we have the freedom to choose, and rather than choose darkness as one young man did that day, I say we choose life.”
The service, held in a large white tent on a baseball field under heavy security, had the feel of an old-fashioned revival. Those on hand, some among them from Seguin, New Braunfels and San Antonio, joined locals from the Sutherland Springs area as a band played gospel music. Cheers and shouts of “Amen!” echoed around the tent intermittently during Pomeroy’s opening remarks.
