Leader sorry for Newtown pastor’s reprimand

ST. LOUIS — The president of a conservative Lutheran denomination has apologized for reprimanding a Newtown, Conn., pastor who participated in an interfaith prayer vigil in apparent violation of the church’s constitution.

The Rev. Rob Morris of Christ the King Lutheran Church offered the benediction at the Dec. 16 vigil with other religious leaders — including Jewish, Muslim, and Baha’i — for victims of the shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.
