Kirtland Murders

  <<This afternoon the Ohio Supreme Court released its ruling that set October 10,2006 as the execution date for Jeffrey Lundgren.

The Community of Christ has released the following statement:

August 24, 2006

The Community of Christ continues to be deeply saddened at the pain and suffering caused by the actions of Lundgren and his followers in 1989. Jeffrey Lundgren withdrew from the church in October, 1988, prior to this tragic event. His religious viewpoints and practices were in complete opposition to beliefs of Community of Christ. The Community of Christ World Conference of 2000 passed a resolution stating that we stand in opposition to the use of the death penalty, and as a peace church we continue to seek ways to achieve healing and restorative justice.
