Auburn Seminary President the Rev. Dr. Katharine R. Henderson condemns gun violence
‘We must choose the way of life that means a breaking of the death grip the NRA has on our politics’

NEW YORK  — Today, an assailant opened fire in a Baptist church in Sutherland, Texas, during services. Auburn President, the Rev. Dr. Katharine R. Henderson, issued the following statement in response:

“God is setting before America a choice between life and death — we must choose the way of life that means a breaking of the death grip the National Rifle Association (NRA) has on our politics. The way of life is to grieve for those who have died and commit ourselves to a more peaceful future without this plague of gun violence.”
