Third: Faith Leaders Condemn Racism, Hatred: August 17, 2017

We, leaders of Talbot County's faith communities, condemn, in the strongest terms, the racism, the anti-Semitism, the anti-Muslim and the xenophobic hatred and violence brought to Charlottesville, Virginia this past weekend.

The bold actions of neo-Nazi, KKK, and other white supremacist groups were evil as measured by any standards in our diverse religious traditions.

We will not be silent. We are called to affirm the inherent worth and dignity of all, to love our neighbor, and to strive for true equity. We denounce the cowards who spew hate and who advocate against these universal values. The actions of these white supremacists, many of whom are young white men in their 20s and 30s, are destructive to the very fabric of our community and nation.

Bigotry cannot go unchecked. We call on the citizens of Talbot County to join us in condemning the actions of these individuals and these organizations. We call on elected officials to publicly and explicitly condemn white supremacy and the organizations that advance sick ideologies and practices.
