A pro-family leader wonders where the outrage is in the wake of the cold-blooded murder of two Christians who were street-witnessing in Florida. Tite Sufra, 24, and 23-year-old Stephen Ocean were recently shot to death by a man they had witnessed to in Boynton Beach.
According to police, the men met 18-year-old Jeriah Woody and spoke with him for 15 minutes on the public sidewalk. The witnessing encounter was halted when Woody received a phone call and told the preachers he had to go. Police say as the pair walked away, Woody turned and followed them, pulled a gun and shot both men. He has been arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission wonders why the tragic murder has not received widespread media attention.
“Had these been other types of people — perhaps two Muslim clerics or even two rabbis — I know we would never hear the end of it,” he comments. “But because these were only two African-American, young black ministers, apparently the media has not covered this, and I think that it’s completely ashamed that they haven’t mentioned this because it’s such a chilling crime.”
Woody is being held without bond.
