    Interesting pictures Mr. Daly, thanks. Question. The hearsay is that this was part of a Bethel Church affiliated group of mostly white young kids and that the protest tonight will be the same group… can you confirm or did you just take pictures?

    If so, I would find it very ironic as Bethel Leadership is very alt-right / pro Trump and his administration, who many would argue are also racist, sexist and anti anyone that speaks out against Trump. BUT, that said, perhaps the kids are pushing back on Bill and Beni Johnson in the name of anti racism?

    Interesting times.

    Christian, as someone that has worked with and got to know many Bethel kids. It is unfair of you to lump them together as all thinking the same. The kids I knew had a wide spectrum of beliefs. Many of them were left leaning, I never met an anti gay Bethel student. I never met a racist student. Many were Democrats. As like most other religions, not every member believes every church tenet, for example… 60% of Catholic women disagree with the church’s stance on abortion.

    Perhaps it is as simple as these Bethel kids are just as outraged over the death of this man as everyone else.
