In a press release, the sister of the priest Hamel, assassinated in 2016 in the middle of morning mass in his church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray (Seine-Maritime), Roseline Hamel, addressed her thoughts to the families of the victims of the attack at Nice knife.
“The God who asks to kill does not exist. He is a lure, worse, an idol which embodies the spirit of Evil”, she adds in this text co-signed by the Archbishop of Rouen, Mgr Dominique Lebrun . “With the help of unbelievers, we must bring this idol down,” they write, “justice, peace, love will conquer. We believe it, even if today we cry.”
