Statement Re George Floyd
Published on Wednesday, 17 June 2020 00:00
We believe that all human beings are created and loved by God equally, regardless of religion, gender, sexuality and race. We also believe that life should not be taken away violently and gruesomely as George Floyd had his life taken away last week. Whilst we cannot condone damage to property, or any form of physical violence, the outrage that has since followed is understandable, given the level of injustice and deprivation that black people have faced, are currently facing, and will continue to face, unless we all speak up against injustice and racism.
We condemn all forms of racism in the strongest terms possible, and we are asking everyone to stand up against racism and injustice in our society.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of George Floyd at this difficult time.
