Love for Orlando

Home » News » Love for Orlando

Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of all those affected by the shootings at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando. They are also with the tens of thousands in worldwide LGBT communities from Soho to Sydney who showed on our TV screens their quiet, dignified grief and support for their American brothers and sisters. Their response contrasted sharply with the self-aggrandisement of the American politician whose personal ambition seemed to trump any sentiments of sympathy and condolence.

So we pray that love and time will bring comfort and healing to the injured and grieving. And may common sense and enlightened action be preferred to knee-jerk, divisive rhetoric.
