Unitarian President Attacks ‘Easily Available Firearms’ After Orlando Shooting

The president of the leftwing Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) blames “firearms that are easily available,” “demonization of other faiths,” and “homophobia” for the massive shooting by jihadist Omar Mateen at a gay bar in Orlando, Florida.

Rev. Peter Morales said he was “horrified and “distraught” at the news of the shooting, adding:

Unfortunately, this is the kind of violence that is predictable when hatred and fear are aroused by demagogues and when firearms are easily available. There are about 100 gun deaths per day in the United States. Only mass shootings are newsworthy. This is madness.

May all people of good will, people of all faiths and no faith, renew our determination to end racism, end demonization of those of other faiths, end homophobia, and create a society where access to lethal weapons has some rational control. Otherwise we will wait helplessly for the next atrocity.

The UUA also recently backed legislation by some House Democrats that would amend the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to ensure religious exemptions cannot be applied to any health care service, including abortion and gender transition treatments.
