He seems to have been a classic “lone wolf”. As far as police can tell, the man who murdered 50 worshippers, and critically wounded nine more, at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand on March 15th was not part of any organisation. The 28-year-old Australian, Brenton Tarrant, claimed to have developed his violent beliefs on his own, surfing the internet and visiting Europe. He bought his weapons himself.

Dear Friend:
I will never expect a person to apologize for the fiendish acts of people who are nominally members of any religion. I can not apologize for the many white Christians who try to terrorize Muslims and Jews, or who are racists. The judgement is on their heads. But I must stand for people of peace against attacks.

You are in my prayers
Peace
