Always Check the Facts
Below is a reader comment that I received about the "World Net Daily" Faith2Action Commentary written by Janet Porter about how David Wilkerson's "Times Square Church" made sandwiches just prior to 9/11.
DAN'S COMMENT: I heard the story about the sandwiches at a church meeting last night, but was doubtful so I called Wilkerson's Times Square Church office this morning and found that yest, they had cancelled events in the weeks prior to the event as widely reported on the Internet, but that the sandwiches were made after the planes struck the towers, not before.
PERSONAL COMMENT: To confirm this I just telephoned the "Times Square Church" and was told that sandwiches were made on 9/11 and not the day before. Actually it never dawned on me to check the facts of this story, so thanks Dan for going that extra mile!
