Pastor Houses Paroled Child Killer, But Neighbors Say He Can't Be Redeemed


A pastor in a small New Hampshire town has taken in a man who killed a child, saying it’s the Christian thing to do. Outraged residents say the ex-con doesn’t deserve a second chance.

Today Good Morning America reported on the controversy in Chichester, NH, over Rev. David Pinckney letting Raymond Guay, who killed a 12-year-old boy in 1973, stay in his basement. Guay claims he found Jesus 16 years ago, but the victim’s sister says, “You don’t shoot a little boy in the face and find Jesus. People don’t find Jesus that are capable of doing things like that.” The reverend says people change and the Bible teaches that people should be given second chances. His neighbor, Kim Mitchell, responds, “There are more deserving people to give second chances to. The child that he murdered doesn’t get a second chance. His mom doesn’t get a second chance.” Clip at left.
