UCC and Disciples leaders, in solidarity with Muslims, express abhorrence of hate speech

Recognizing that all people are created in the image of God, and heeding the words of our sacred scripture, we are disturbed and concerned as we witness the divisive discourse in our country concerning our Muslim neighbors.

The leadership of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) are condemning recent comments that denigrate the Muslim community. In a statement released Wednesday, Dec. 9, national officers of both churches offered support and solidarity to communities of faith standing against xenophobic and racist remarks that motivate hate speech and actions.
