Q: How should Christians respond to the Colorado shooting tragedy?

A: In the wake of the shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, where at last report 12 people were killed and several dozen were wounded earlier today, AiG reached out to our friends at Calvary Chapel Aurora this morning. AiG President Ken Ham conducted a seminar at this church last month. The church informed us that Pastor Ed Taylor and other pastors on the staff were at area hospitals to minister to the wounded and their families, and also to family members who are grieving the loss of loved ones.
