Watch: Black Man Pulls Gun on Pennsylvania Pastor During Service, Tries to Shoot Him

This is black-on-black crime.

But it sure does feel like there is an increase in anti-Christian violence more generally.

The Guardian:

A Pennsylvania man tried to shoot a local pastor in the middle of a Sunday sermon, but the attacker’s gun jammed, giving a congregant and the minister a chance to subdue him without anyone being hurt.

The harrowing encounter was caught on the church’s live stream before authorities found a man shot to death at the home of the pastor’s would-be shooter, CBS News reported.

No charges were immediately brought in connection with the slaying.

Pastor Glenn Germany was in the middle of a sermon at Jesus’ Dwelling Place church in North Braddock, Pennsylvania, when 26-year-old Bernard Polite approached the pulpit and allegedly attempted to shoot the minister, as seen in video footage that quickly went viral online.

Polite’s gun failed to discharge, allowing Germany to run for cover while another church member tackled Polite.

Germany then managed to wrestle the gun out of Polite’s hand.

I’m thankful to God that I’m still here, because he definitely pulled the trigger,” Germany said to CNN affiliate WTAE.

Germany told WTAE that he had not seen Polite before the attempted shooting on Sunday.

Germany spoke with Polite briefly after police arrested Polite. Germany said it was clear to him that Polite was dealing with some form of mental illness.

This guy was just dealing with spirits, he said, and he came in and wanted to shoot somebody,” Germany recounted to CBS.

Wouldn’t you call that “demonic possession” if you were a pastor?

I also don’t think he should have cried on TV.

That Assyrian in Australia didn’t cry when he got stabbed.
