[LaSalle Parish DA Reed] Walters credited the prayers of people in this small central Louisiana town with averting a “disaster” when the thousands of demonstrators descended on the town.
“The only way – let me stress that – the only way that I believe that me or this community has been able to endure the trauma that has been thrust upon us is through the prayers of the Christian people who have sent them up in this community,” Walters said.
“I firmly believe and am confident of the fact that had it not been for the direct intervention of the Lord Jesus Christ last Thursday, a disaster would have happened. You can quote me on that.”
Let’s see: first Jena’s mayor whines about his town getting a bum rap re: racism to a white supremacist and now the local DA claims the only reason the raging Negro horde didn’t go all Detroit ’67 is because of divine intervention.
At this point, Jena should change its name to ‘WTF??!!!1ville.’
