Orlando Tragedy – A Time for Prayer Not Politics

Barb Wire

Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.

In the aftermath of the horrible tragedy in Orlando, where innocent people were killed and injured, we offer our prayers for the victims, their families, their loved ones, and for America. Now is the time for prayer, not political posturing.

Mat Staver: You know, this is a terrible tragedy that occurred in Orlando at this club, Pulse, where someone came in and killed 49 people, injured 53 people. And we need to remember the real lives that were lost in this case, and the relationships and the friendships and the families, all of which are affected, not just in Orlando, but literally around the country. And we want to offer our prayers and our condolences at this time we’re all Americans. And one of the things, unfortunately, that we see happening as we try to unpack this is some people use this tragedy, as they do any tragedy, for political purposes.

They use it to promote this agenda or that agenda. And we need to take this time to just pause and not use this for some political opportunism that we see happening around the country…
