Pastor Rick Warren took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the outpouring of love and prayers after the tragic suicide of his son Matthew. Twisted Twitter users, in a sickening display, attacked Pastor Warren in his grief and others grossly gleefully gloated, wondering if Matthew had been gay.
Thankfully, human decency, love and faith outweighed the cretinous remarks.
“God will not forget the work you did andthe #love you’ve showed for him by helping other Christians.”Heb. 6:10
