This chapter examines the response of various denominations to the violence and the efforts of local churches to aid their neighbors. Churches, synagogues, national denominations, and religious organizations reacted swiftly and proactively to denounce the violence. Uniformly, national denominations issued denunciations of the arsonists and pledged their support to victimized congregations. Local churches also united behind those affected. On the whole, churches were quick to treat the issue as a crisis.
