Bishops in Chile have condemned the murder of Daniel Zamudio, a gay man who was gruesomely beaten and succumbed to his injuries on March 27 after being in a coma for nearly four weeks.

Chilean bishops' conference leader and Archbishop of Santiago, Ricardo Ezzati, voiced solidarity with Zamudio’s friends and family and called for justice in the case.

Roman Catholic leadership still oppose equality for LGBT people, but can sometimes be a voice opposing anti-LGBT violence. This is one such instance.
