The hate must end.
August 13, 2017
This weekend, hundreds of alt-right white supremacists descended on Charlottesville, Virginia, to hold a “Unite the Right” rally. Their stated goal was to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from a park. Their rally, which consisted of neo-Nazis, heavily armed militia members and KKK members, also consisted of openly racist chants, Nazi flags and calls for white supremacy.
One counterprotester was killed and more than a dozen others injured when one of the white supremacists drove his car into a crowd. Two police officers were killed when a helicopter assigned to monitor the rally crashed nearby.
Today, many Christian leaders are speaking out against the protest and hatred. Here’s a look at recent tweets about opposing racism, standing up against injustice and working to end white supremacy. (Note, this piece will be updated throughout the next several days.)[See also this article, “Trump disbands business councils as CEOs flee after Charlottesville remarks”].
