CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) Federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty for a white man accused of killing nine black parishioners in a racially motivated attack at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, last June.
The 33-count indictment charges Roof, who authorities said opened nine people at a Bible study at the black church, with singling out victims for their race and to "interfere with their exercise of their religion.''
(RNS) Even before the current controversy, the flag and other public symbols of the Confederacy were never important to the typical Republican voter, poll data show.
A gun range owner says he trains church-goers so they can defend themselves from attacks such at the killings at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church.
(RNS) How does one muster the courage, the conviction, the moral fiber to grant such a gift to someone who has already taken so much?
"We still believe that prayer changes things. Can I get a witness?" the Rev. Norvel Goff said. The congregated responded with a rousing "Yes."
(RNS) The woman who spotted, reported, and followed the vehicle driven by alleged Charleston, S.C., shooter Dylann Roof says God was working through her.
(RNS) Two days after Dylann Roof allegedly opened fire inside of an historic black church in a city with deep black historical roots, the country is poised Friday (June 19) to celebrate black empowerment and freedom from slavery.
