Muslim Cab Driver in New York Stabbed: Where Are the Voices of Leaders of Faith Communities?

Very bad news: a Muslim cab driver in New York City stabbed Tuesday night.  Because he is Muslim.

Will the leaders of the major faith communities in the U.S. now speak out as leaders (and here), as the rhetorical violence turns to actual physical violence? 

Where is the voice of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, as the pastoral leaders of the Catholic church in the U.S.?  It's time to speak out.
