I found this on Drudge Report website. I was not sure if this would go under prophecy or some other heading. The times we are in are godless. There is no fear of God anymore or respect for those who serve Him. Just one more instance of the world's degeneration...

I suppose we can do nothing but pray for the Lord to convict the hearts of those who would act so heinously. I don't personally see the Catholic church as the representative of all Christiandom but I see an attack against any clergy or any christian a targeted act of violence and one we will likely see much more of.

Still, this some brutal action against an old man, those men should be punished.
