171106 david french national review prayer mass shooting

David French writes:

When you see a mass murder unfold on the television screen or read about it online, let me tell you the single-most important and effective thing you can do in response. It also happens to be the single-most important and effective thing you can do on a sustained basis to turn the hearts of evil men, to strengthen the courage and resolve of good men and women, and to inspire the ideas and actions that bring change. You can pray.

Is there anyone out there who doesn’t know—not think, know—that French’s response would have been very different if Devin Patrick Kelley hadn’t been a white male christian?

I doubt that French, or anyone at National Review, suggested that prayer was the proper response when the person with a gun didn’t look like Kelley.
