Agudath Israel of America Statement on Shooting at a Church Near Fort Worth, Texas (GRAPHIC FOOTAGE)

Once again, there has been an attack on a place of worship, this one a church near Fort Worth, Texas. A gunman shot and killed two people during a service on Sunday before he was himself killed by members of the church security team.

Whether the murderer was motivated by some ideology isn’t yet known, but violence against worshippers and other innocent citizens has emerged from myriad mindsets.

Tragically, vicious hatred of “the other” – whoever the other may be – is increasingly common in our country. And it deserves the strongest condemnation, which we and all Americans of good will offer.
