[On the Orlando shooting]
I read the news item on this attack at Fox News, and they quoted one of the survivors as saying the bar had been just about to close and everyone was taking their "last sip." The horrific irony in that statement was probably not what the speaker intended to communicate, but it was nevertheless there. Every one of us is literally 'one sip' away from meeting the Righteous Judge. The tragedy of the shooting is compounded by the sad fact that those who died have now passed beyond any last chance of repenting, and their eternal condition has been irrevocably determined. No one in the media is likely to comment on this fact, obviously.
