Pastor Rick Warren took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the outpouring of love and prayers after the tragic suicide of his son Matthew. Twisted Twitter users, in a sickening display, attacked Pastor Warren in his grief and others grossly gleefully gloated, wondering if Matthew had been gay.
Thankfully, human decency, love and faith outweighed the cretinous remarks.
@RickWarren Our family is committing to praying daily for you an Kay. Sending much love.
