Good evening. Your Eminence, Cardinal McCarrick, thank you for your very

kind introduction. Even more, thank you for your leadership as one of our

nation’s most eloquent voices for religious freedom and tolerance—here at

home and around the world. As the tragic events of the past 24 hours remind

us, we need such voices now more than ever.

Indeed, before I begin I want to reiterate what President Obama and

Secretary Clinton said earlier today. The attack on our consulate in Libya—

and the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans—was an

outrage; an act of senseless violence without any justification. Our

thoughts and prayers are with the families of the Americans we lost, with

our diplomats and development experts who represent our nation every day,

and we reaffirm our determination to carry on their work.

That includes building a world that is safer, more secure and the work that

brings us together here: a world where the dignity of all people—and all

faiths—is respected. This work takes on added urgency given the truly

abhorrent video that has offended so many people–Muslims,

and non-Muslims alike—in our country and around the world.

So I want to commend Cardinal Dolan and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for your powerful

statement today that “we need to be respectful of other religious traditions

at the same time that we unequivocally proclaim that violence in the name of

religion is wrong,”
