The board of trustees and staff of Lead Them Home express our deepest condolences to the surviving families of 50+ people ruthlessly gunned down in Orlando last night. We pray God’s comfort for all who have lost loved ones and healing for the wounded.
This deadliest shooting in American history is a cowardly act of terror that targeted LGBT+ people. Homophobia occurs on a range from lacking understanding to being judgmental — all to way to an intense hate that can yield bullying… even mass violence.
We condemn this massacre. We condemn bullying. We condemn hatred towards LGBT+ persons. We grieve and pray for the victims and their families.
To our LGBT+ friends: we stand with you. You are being prayed for in countless churches around the world this morning. We love you. We are here for you. May Christ comfort you.
