Factor the Villain

I mentioned a story I heard on NPR in only one of the services (I think the one we podcasted). A dad was talking about his concern that people will lump his bi-polar son in with the Virginia Tech shooter because of all the talk about mental illness being the cause behind the shooting. I have no doubt mental illness played a role in this case, but when we fail to factor in the Villain and real personal evil, we end up condemning a whole group of people for being ill. Factor in the Villain. Pray for the family and friends of the survivors.
