Baptist Seminary of Kentucky professors Dr. Mark Medley, Professor of Theology, and Dr. John Inscore Essick, Associate Professor of Church History, recently submitted an opinion editorial for the Courier Journal. In this op-ed, the professors compared high school students’ outcry toward gun violence following the recent shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to the assassination of The Rev. Óscar Romero, archbishop of San Salvador. The professors state,
“Romero was speaking to the leaders of his day, and our students are speaking to our leaders, elites and decision-makers. Like Romero, they implore those in positions of power and influence to refuse to accept these mass murders as inevitable and instead enact policies that ensure March 24 will be a repentant opening rather than a deadly cul-de-sac.”
