At times, during the 50-minute sermon to full pews, Rev. Addis Moore’s voice trumpeted to a near scream.
He had a message for those gathered Tuesday at Mt. Zion Baptist Church that needed to be heard — there was no reason for Tiffany Renee Ayers to die.
“Let me say on the outset that sister Tiffany died too young,” Moore said. “A mother ought not have a child that is shot to death. Children ought not have a mom that’s killed on the street. … This is not Beirut. It’s not Afghanistan. It’s not Libya. It’s not Iraq.”
And I have no idea where you are going with this.
Though a tragedy, it has nothing to do with Beirut and there is no comparison between the two. Rev. Moore, I’ll be mailing you your “looks like Beirut” certificate shortly.
