Olin Holly, the Executive Pastor of Guest Experience and Pastoral Care at Atlanta’s Victory Church, tells a story in June 2020 of how God told him to lie down on the floor of his garage to feel what George Floyd felt as he was dying.
Then, during his “sermon,” he rips off his outer shirt to show the black tank top he was wearing and said that this is what George Floyd was wearing the day he was “murdered.”
He then goes into a schpiel about how he is talking to God and telling God that he can’t imagine the pain that George Floyd went through. According to him, God then told him “I don’t want you to imagine it, I want you to feel it.”
He then explains that God told him to go into his garage and lay face down next to his car. So he went to his garage and started weeping. From this point, well, you’ll just have to watch the video yourself to see the complete meltdown he has on stage re-enacting the death of George Floyd.
One question nobody seems to be asking, though, is if he can feel all the pain of the people George Floyd hurt.
