(REUTERS/Steve Dipaola)People take part in candle light vigil following a mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon October 1, 2015. A gunman opened fire at a community college in southwest Oregon on Thursday, killing nine people and wounding seven others before police shot him to death, authorities said, in the latest mass killing to rock an American campus.

Eyewitnesses say the shooter targeted Christians.

Christians were martyred for their faith, on American soil, a fact mostly ignored by most of the Mainstream Media and the White House.

Kortney Moore was inside the classroom. She told the Roseburg News-Review that the shooter ordered students to get on the ground – and then told them to stand up and state their religion.

"And they would stand up and he said, 'Good, because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second," Stacy Boylan said in a televised report. "And then he shot and killed them."
