COLUMBIA—Interfaith Partners of S.C. offers our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of individuals who lost their lives in the senseless act of violence last night at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C..
We pray for the members of Mother Emanuel AME and the entire Charleston community as they grieve and deal with such a devastating tragedy.
Interfaith Partners of S.C. condemns any and every act of violence within a house of worship, or acts of violence motivated by fear, hatred, ignorance, religious intolerance, racism, or prejudice.
As people of many faiths who are widely-diverse not only spiritually, but also ethnically, socioeconomically and culturally, we stand in solidarity today with Emanuel AME and its members and community and pray for peace with justice.
The Rev. Roy M. Mitchell
Interfaith Partners of S.C.
