Man shoots himself inside the Crystal Cathedral after handing notes to two ushers!

ACCORDING TO AN ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORT THIS MORNING...

"A man shot himself to death in front of a cross inside televangelist Robert H. Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral on Wednesday as a group of visitors was being told about the church’s suicide - prevention program.
  The man entered about 9:45 a.m., handed a note and his driver’s license to two ushers, walked to the cross and then shot himself in the head as he appeared to be praying, said Senior Pastor Juan Carlos Ortiz.
  The man used a semiauto­matic handgun, said police Lt. Dennis Ellsworth.
  The Orange County coro­ner’s office identified the man as Steve Smick, 48. No home­town was given."

THE IRONY OF THIS MAN'S SUICIDE TAKING PLACE IN FRONT OF A GROUP OF TOURISTS WHO WERE BEING TOLD ABOUT THE CRYSTAL CATHEDRAL'S SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM, IS ENORMOUS. WHY DID HE CHOOSE TO GO THERE AND KILL HIMSELF OF ALL PLACES? WE MAY NEVER KNOW.
