[Statement] Pastor Jentezen Franklin Condemns ‘Ideologies of Hate’ in the Aftermath of Terrorist Attacks at Sri Lankan Churches

GAINESVILLE, Ga.  —  In response to the terrorist attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka, Pastor Jentezen Franklin issues the following statement:

“This Easter we were filled with hope as we once again celebrated our gift of eternal life and the conquered grave. Yet we grieved the senseless and cowardly attacks our brothers and sisters experienced in Sri Lanka. An attack on any church is an attack on the whole church.

In fact, an attack on any faith is an attack on every faith. I urge every individual across the world who understands the essential right to worship freely and without fear of hostility will offer their prayers and will do everything they can to put an end to ideologies of hate and acts of evil in places of worship. Whatever your faith, whatever your politics, wherever you live—this should be a part of your creed.”




Pastor Jentezen Franklin is the Senior Pastor of Free Chapel, a multi-campus church. Each week his television program “Kingdom Connection” is broadcast on major networks all over the world. A New York Times best-selling author, Jentezen has written eight books including his latest, Love Like You’ve Never Been Hurt.
