The day following the deadliest church shooting in modern U.S. history, and the worst mass shooting in Texas history, Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt said there is “no other place” she would rather be during a violent attack than inside a place of worship.
In response to the 26 church service attendees who lost their lives yesterday, Earhardt said:
“We’ve been reporting this shouldn’t happen in a church. But I was downstairs talking with some people that work here that we all talk about our faith and we share the same beliefs. We were saying there’s no other place we would want to go other than church. Because I’m there asking for forgiveness. I feel very close to Christ when I’m there.
So, I’m trying to look at some positives here and know that those people are with the Lord now and experiencing eternity and no more suffering, no more sadness anymore.”
Earhardt spoke while interviewing Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
In response, Abbott stressed the “necessity for us to come together under one God to purge evil and to rely upon the love that God provides.” According to the most recent reports, approximately half of the 26 people killed in Sunday’s shooting were children.
