Julie Nicholson

This hideously sad story (via the Daily Telegraph) speaks for itself:

A vicar whose daughter was killed in the London bombings has resigned because she finds it hard to forgive the men who carried out the suicide attacks. The Rev Julie Nicholson, priest-in-charge of St Aidan with St George church, Bristol, said she was struggling to reconcile her feelings with her position. Mrs Nicholson has not returned to her post since July 7 when her 24-year-old daughter Jenny…was among more than 50 people killed…”I rage that a human being could choose to take another human’s life. I rage that someone should do this in the name of a God,” she said. “I find that utterly offensive. We have heard a lot about things causing certain groups of people offence and I would say that I am hugely offended that someone should take my daughter in the name of a religion or a God…I find that utterly offensive.

It’s impossible to disagree.

Systemic Racism? Make Them Prove It.
