We are horrified and saddened by the shooting that left more than 26 dead and more than 20 injured at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. It is especially hard to bear this news after the recent the terrible terrorist attack in New York and the mass shooting in Las Vegas.
We condemn this horrible violent act in the strongest possible terms. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and especially the congregation of the First Baptist Church, which lost half of its members.
