Death of a Sinner

posted on October 20, 2022

Elizabeth Bruenig of The Atlantic writes that Dana Moore, the pastor for Texas inmate John Henry Ramirez who was put to death two weeks ago, was with him throughout his execution. The Supreme Court ordered the state of Texas to allow Moore to place his hands on Ramirez and pray aloud in the execution chamber. Moore said that he “prayed [to God] for John to feel his presence, for John to feel his peace and for everybody there to feel his peace.” Moore continued, “I was just praying for God’s presence to be with John as he took him home, as he was going to be with Jesus. Just bring that comfort.”
