Someone posted a Deseret News article last night about a Jeff Benedict who went to the family home the night of the shooting. While reading the article, this paragraph jumped out at me:
"When Checketts reached the Parker home, Robbie asked him to lead his family in prayer. While praying, Checketts FELT IMPRESSED (emphasis mine) to say that Robbie would deal with his grief by speaking publicly about the tragedy, and that he would emerge as a powerful voice for compassion and peace."
Another example of Mormons not being allowed to say no. If this jerk had not "felt impressed" to even bring up the idea of Mr. Parker speaking publicly, do you really think he would have? The day after the shooting? Asshole.
Here is a link to the original article:http://www.deseretnews.com/article/765618130/Witnessing-grief-and-compassion-in-Newtown.html?pg=all
