WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Faith and Action in Washington, DC, a Christian ministry with a largebase of supporters in the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania area, released this statement today in response to the most recent school shooting in Lancaster's Amish country:
Faith and Action president, and head of the National Clergy Council, the Rev. Rob Schenck, who will visit Lancaster at the end of this month, said, "Today's shooting at an Amish school house in Pennsylvania is one more sign of a deep sickness in America's soul. Whenever children are targeted for murder, it indicates the very lowest level of demoralization.
"There is nothing more evil on this planet than child killing. Our prayers are with the vicitms, their parents and family and with the community. May God have mercy on our nation."
