“The streets were Robert’s pulpit,” said Thomas. “Just the substance of who he was, outside of him as a pastor, outside of him as a priest, was just a good person.”
Booth had also just made a request to his girlfriend and was planning a wedding, according to Facebook.
Thomas said Booth could strike up a conversation with anyone, regardless of background. Thomas believes that Booth was talking to people about God when they shot him.
