A shocking scene played out in a suburban Baptist church Monday near Fort Worth, Texas.
Derrick Birdow, 33, rammed his car into the church's brick wall, then tracked down pastor Danny Kirk Jr. and beat him to death with an electric guitar, according to the Associated Press.
Birdow, who died in the hospital after police subdued him with stun guns, apparently found the electric guitar inside the church. Kirk was the founding pastor of Greater Sweethome Missionary Baptist Church.
Orange County has hosted its share of pastors from the ultra-popular Rick Warren of Saddleback Church to Robert Schuller, who is now suing the Crystal Cathedral church he founded.
Police have not revealed why Birdow attacked Kirk.
With the high emotions stirred up by religious debate, would such an attack be likely in Orange County? Tell us your thoughts.
