VERY IMPRESSIVE 22 YEAR OLD JURER, NOT ONLY ARTICULATE ABOUT THE LAW AND HIS ROLE IN THE JURY, BUT ABOUT JESUS CHRIST--AN EVANGELIST AND IN A POSITIVE WAY
James McDowell is a 22 year old good ole southern boy from South Carolina and does my state well! This is a great interview. I would suspect that he is a Southern Baptist or some other evangelical Protestant. He speaks about how his faith played into his decision and that the jurors prayed together. He prays for the conversion of Alex and prays for God's mercy upon his soul. He likens the possiblity for conversion and seeking God's mercy through repentance to Saint Paul harboring murdereous thoughts and actions toward Christians and being converted by the grace of God. He also indicates that his brother is in law enforcment and was at the scene of the murders the night of the killings. He was also a witness. James speaks about this. My point, though, is that James is a witness to his faith, not in an off putting way, not prosyletizing but evangelical! God bless James!!!! I grew up with this in the south and I was always impressed and envious of how Protestants could do this and so easily, whereas with Catholic laity, not so much! James wanted to glorify God! That says it all.
