Christian leaders were quick to offer their reaction to the deadly shooting Friday at a Connecticut elementary school in a small town where within minutes 26 people were dead ? 20 of them children.
By mid-afternoon, evangelist and Harvest Christian Fellowship Pastor Greg Laurie had posted a blog in which he called the morning shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton the “worst imaginable scenario.”
“It’s Christmas time,” Laurie wrote. “Parents bundle up their children another day for school before Christmas vacation starts in the small town of Newtown, Connecticut. There’s shopping to do, errands to run before they pick them up.
“Then the worst imaginable scenario takes place. A young man walks into Sandy Hook Elementary School and begins shooting. When the horror finally stops 20 children and 6 adults have been shot and killed. This is just heartbreaking.”
