On 6th April this year, it will be the twentieth anniversary of the murder of Margaret Wright in Belfast.
Margaret Wright was a 31 year old single woman.
She met a terrible death at the hands of savage Loyalist paramilitaries in a Loyalist bandhall.
It seems she asked questions which led her killers to suspect she was a Roman Catholic or an undercover policewoman.
Most men instinctively protect women but the men who savagely beat and shot Margaret had instead the killer instinct.
What horror and terror she suffered at their hands.
Republican paramilitaries/terrorists have also committed heinous atrocities and, like their mirror image i.e Loyalist killers, they have sometimes deliberately targeted women.
The killing of Jean McConville is a case in point. She was the mother of 10 children.
The IRA murdered her because they suspected she was an informer.
We read in the Bible the commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” KJV. The same verse in the Amplified Bible reads thus, “You shall not commit murder.” Exodus ch.20 v.13
A day of reckoning is coming, and all unrepentant murderers will fall into the hands of the living God, and the Bible says “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews ch.10 v.31
