From Stephen Dear, People of Faith Against the Death Penalty
If you have already done so, thank you so much for signing the religious letter for Troy. To endorse the letter click here: http://tinyurl.com/troyclergy
We need you to do more. Ask every single religious leader you can to sign the letter.
Don’t you agree that if we really try we can get thousands more religious leaders to sign this letter? There are 600,000 working church pastors in America today and hundreds of thousands more non-Christian clergy and retired clergy and other religious leaders. All it takes is a small fraction of them to touch the hearts and consciences of the five people who make up the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles. We know the Board’s members are active church members. They care what religious leaders have to say.
They care what you have to say.
Please forward this message to the networks of religious leaders in your life:
- Local clergy
- Ministerial associations
- Church judicatories
- Interfaith groups
- Local, state and national groups with clergy members
Ask every single religious leader you can. Be creative. But please hurry.
Troy’s fate may be your hands. If enough religious leaders speak the board just might be moved.
Thank you for joining us in prayer and action. Again, here’s the letter: http://tinyurl.com/troyclergy
