Washington, DC—Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the senior Republican and President Pro Tempore of the US Senate, released the following statement after hearing about the attack on the Jewish synagogue in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:

“Today, my prayers are with the people of Pittsburgh. This horrific act of violence—perpetrated against a holy people on their holy day—reminds us of the reality of evil and the need to counter its influence with courage and love. The hatred in this man’s heart has no place in a society founded on the ideal of religious freedom.”
