Statement on the Mass Killings at Orlando Nightclub

I, along with so many others, am deeply saddened by the mass killings this morning at an Orlando nightclub. There is no place for hate and violence among us. Whether we are speaking as Christians or citizens of the United States, our founding documents are clear:

“You shall not murder” is the sixth Commandment.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” are the words in The Declaration of Independence.

We stand in profound sympathy with the family and friends of the victims. We also pray for those who knew and are horrified by the actions of the perpetrator.

May God give comfort to the hurting and change the hearts of those who would harm others.

Dr. Joel C. Hunter, Senior Pastor
