Metropolitan Issues Statement on Charlottesville

It saddens us that our nation has been disturbed with hatred and violence. The display of division in Charlottesville, Virginia has shaken every facet of our society. May the men and women of our great country unite in the true spirit of America, and trample upon such voices and senseless violence. The clergy and faithful of the Northeast American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church, join me in condemning such acts of violence. We offer our prayers for those who have been injured, and for the tragic loss of life. We continue in the spirit of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and stand united with all Americans!
