Two Words


"But if the plot by the gunman was to challenge race relations, to create terror, we cannot let him succeed.

"I cannot stop crying, but I refuse to grow angry, because it won’t help anything. We must stay on the course to integrate the church. We must stay on the course to create a multiracial, multi-ethnic platform for worship.

"The AME church is the church militant. We are the social justice church; we are the civil rights church. That’s who we are; that’s our tradition. If it was a plot, they picked the wrong church.

"We’re going to go even harder, faster, longer—with great zeal. We are the beloved community, and we’re going to love them to heaven."
