Call It What It Is

Two Duncan, Oklahoma teenage boys were charged with first degree murder in the shooting death of an Australian baseball player. A third teen was accused of being an accessory to the crime.

Christopher Lane, 22, of Melbourne, was shot in the back as he jogged along a road in Duncan. The boys reportedly planned to kill someone to relieve their boredom. In their own words, they gunned down Lane for “the fun of it.”

No doubt, much will be said about the defendants’ youth, their upbringing, their lack of opportunities, the fact that they fell in with bad company, etc.

When all is said and done, let’s call it what it is.

It is evil.

“…Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”—Romans 12:9.
