Archbishop Elpidophoros Calls for An End to the "Death-Culture of Guns" Following Elementary School Shooting in Uvalde, Texas

On Monday evening, May 24, 2022, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros issued the following statement on Twitter regarding the deadly shooting of 19 children and 2 teachers at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas earlier that morning:

The massacre of so many innocent today in Uvalde, TX, must challenge our Nation to finally address gun violence. This bloody sacrifice of children enabled by the death-culture of guns cannot be justified by appeals to “rights.” What of the right to their lives?
