Bud Pierce's Statement on Orlando Shooting
Salem, OR (June 12, 2016) - It is with heavy hearts that we grieve for the loss of innocent lives in Orlando, Florida.
Selma and I are holding family and friends close today and praying for the victims, family members, and thousands placed in fear and terror because of this act of hatred.
"We will wait for the proper authorities to conclude whether this was an act of terror, but this was clearly an act of hatred," said Bud Pierce. "But what we won't wait for is to demand swift, fair, and forceful justice for those responsible for this act of pure evil."
