Religious Leaders React To Storming Of Capitol By Trump Supporters

Religion News Service has published excerpts from separate statements from over 20 faith leaders across the country reacting to the storming of the U.S. Capitol yesterday by supporters of President Trump who were seeking to stop certification of Electoral College votes. For example, Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear said:

Peaceable transitions of power have marked our Republic since the beginning. It is part of honoring and submitting to God’s ordained leaders whether they were our choice or not. We need you, @POTUS to condemn this mob. Let’s move forward together. Praying for safety.
