Local religious leaders condemned the slaying of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others during a press conference Wednesday morning. The killing of ambassadors like Chris Stevens is an “abomination that we condemn in the loudest voice we can,” said Maher Mathout, senior advisor for the Muslim Public Affairs Council based in Highland Park.

Stevens and three of his staffers were killed by armed Libyan extremists on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. After a day of calling for a stop to divisiveness, “we woke up to the nightmare that we did this morning,” said Rabbi Joshua Levine-Grater.

No matter what faith we belong to, “we implore global citizens to refuse to be manipulated into divisiveness,” said Reverend Ed Bacon of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena.
