We wanted to pass on to you this statement from Bishop Parsley.
A Statement on the murder of Billy Jack Gaither
By The Rt. Rev. Henry N. Parsley
Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama
The murder of Billy Jack Gaither, apparently because of his sexual orientation, is a tragedy. As a Christian bishop I grieve with his family, friends, and community.
This sad event in our state reminds us all of the terrible consequences of prejudice and hate in our life together. Let us pray that it will spur us to deeper tolerance and understanding in our human differences.
