Internationally known minister and Christian writer Rev. Robert A. Crutchfield issues the following statement regarding today’s shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek Wisconsin,
” Any desecration of anyone’s place of worship saddens and angers me. The loss of life in today’s attack only deepens my sorrow. My thoughts, and prayers are with all those those affected by today’s events, and their families.” In these thoughts and prayers I include the brave first responders who rushed to the aid of those attacked. ” Crutchfield continued ” as I write this this incident is being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism. However no definitive information on the motives of the shooter(s) has been released. “
He closed by saying ” Spiritually, and emotionally recovery from today’s incident will be neither easy nor quick. I call upon all people of sincere faith to pray for God’s strength and comfort to blanket Oak Creek, Wisconsin. May that blanket linger beyond the need.”
