Christians Murdered, Story Overlooked

OneNewsNow | by Allie Martin | Feb. 11, 2010

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.

  1. I am Israel says:

    This is our world today. Much of that which happens is simply ignored, unless the news media feels it can create headlines material. The deaths of the two witnesses is indeed a tragedy, but no more so than the thousands of such tragedies that are happening these days and times, each and every day, throughout all the world.

    It is written: “and in those days….” Those days are now.
