The Most Rev. Michael Curry issued a statement on Nov. 7 decrying the reported killing of 10,000 Palestinians in Gaza so far by the Israeli military in response to Hamas’ massacre of Israelis a month ago. Curry called for an end to all killing in the region while acknowledging the conflict’s complexities.
“Today I raise my voice for love because more than 10,000 people have died in Gaza, including more than 4,000 children,” Curry said, citing figures reported by Gaza’s Hamas-controlled health ministry. “The violence is horrific, and the geopolitics are complex, but my call to love is simple: Stop the killing. Stop all of it. Stop it today.”
Curry’s statement marks his most direct comments yet on the intensifying conflict.
