The following statement was released today by the Canadian leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

 

"We express our deep sorrow and condemnation for the tragic shooting of our brothers in worship at the Quebec City mosque last evening. Central to the doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that God is Father to all inhabitants of the earth and that He loves each of us deeply. We are His children.

"We offer our prayers in support of those most directly impacted by this senseless and unjustifiable act. We further invite all to reach out in faith and tolerance and love to our brothers and sisters of other beliefs. We are indeed all God's children."
