August 14, 2017, Adrian, Michigan – In response to the recent violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the General Council of the Adrian Dominican Sisters released the following statement on behalf of the Congregation.
The Adrian Dominican Sisters deplore the acts of white supremacist terrorism in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in a tragic loss of life and numerous casualties over the weekend. Hatred and bigotry are anathema to civil discourse, the rule of law and the ideals of our democracy. As women of faith, we add our voice to those calling for an end to racist violence in our country and pray that we awaken to the loving imperative of our being created equal in the image of God.
Thank you for the words "rule of law and ideals of our democracy. And to president trump there is no moral equivalency between kkk,white supremacists, neo-nazi torch fire marchers and protesters. May he begin to read our history of slavery. Jim Crow and segregation so to act on beh
Sisters thank you but stronger words are called for in denouncing this. Call out our leaders.who promote hate by name.
All women and men are created equal...in the image and likeness of God
We must continually condemn as immoral those in hate groups which trample on those values we hold true. We must demand that all those in all levels, including the highest in government, be purged from positions of influence. To this end, we pledge our undying efforts to serve truth,love and the God who made us all.
AMEN! I stand with my Sisters on this! Thank you!
Thank you Sisters for standing up to deplorable acts of racist violence and hatred.
