Sutherland Springs, Texas. Updated. Why am I always underestimating Texas? The District attorney said on live TV, November 7th, that the victim count in the Texas massacre DOES include the unborn child of one of the victims who was 8 months pregnant. As the survivors try to cope and the nation reels from the mass slaughter of Christians on Sunday, November 5th, 2017, we are beginning to learn more about the victims, and sadly, the youngest victim was just one month shy of their birth.
Baby Holcombe was the child carried by Crystal Holcombe, who was 8 months pregnant. She was killed along with her unborn baby and three of her children (she was a mother of six total, including her unborn child). Holcombe’s two other children were reportedly injured and are now with their father who also survived.
Crystal’s cousin Nick Uhlig told reporters, “She doesn’t even drink, smoke or nothing,” Uhlig told the Houston Chronicle. “She just takes care of kids, she raises goats and makes homemade cheese. That kind of thing. They don’t go out dancing or anything like that. They’re real old-fashioned, down-to-earth.”
I’m not sure that any other news outlet, except maybe Life Site News, will report much on Baby Holcombe. Will some liberal news outlets lower the death total they report when they learn it includes an unborn child to be intellectually consistent with their pro abortion values? We know that as of now they are still reporting that the youngest victim was 18 months old.
All of this confusion is exactly why we must continue to talk publicly about what this entire attack was about, it was about attacking the heart of America -traditional, Christian, families.
“But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. In the eyes of the foolish they seemed to have died,and their departure was thought to be an affliction, and their going from us to be their destruction;but they are at peace.” Wisdom of Solomon 3: 1-3
