Consider this report from World Net Daily:
Rampaging Muslims have killed 10 Christians, injured 61 others, destroyed nine churches and displaced more than 500 people in northern Nigeria, according to eyewitnesses – all because Muslim high school students claimed a Christian student had drawn a cartoon of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, on the wall of the school’s mosque.
According to Compass Direct News,which specializes in reporting on Christian persecution worldwide, there are 1,500 students at the high school, called Government College-Tudun Wada Dankadai, of which only 14 are Christians, and only seven of those actually live on campus. The Christian students at the school insist no one ever saw the alleged cartoon, and furthermore that no one in the tiny minority group of Christians would have dared such a feat, especially during Ramadan.
Here’s a little more:
Among the churches burned were: St. Mary’s Catholic Church; St. George’s Anglican Church; Evangelical Church of West Africa; Assemblies of God Church; First Baptist Church; a Pentecostal church called the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church; an African independent church, the Cherubim and Seraphim Church; and two other Pentecostal churches, The Chosen Bible Church and Deeper Life Bible Church.
The 10 Christians murdered included: Augustine Odoh and his younger brother Cosmos Odoh, both members of St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Another Catholic, Joseph Eze, was also killed. When Compass filed its initial report, the corpses of the three Catholics were lying at the City Hospital in Kano city. Seven other Christians murdered were buried in a common grave Wednesday, but government workers did not allow relatives or church leaders to identify the corpses.
But really, we should believe the Islamists when they say they ‘want peace’ and they ‘don’t want to destroy Israel.’ Or, maybe we should believe them when they say ‘we want to destroy Israel.’
This is outrageous. I tell you that if Christians did something like this every time someone like Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris or Kathy Griffen said something about Jesus Christ the world would probably turn inside out with rage. Let the President quote Scripture in a speech or let a candidate say they pray to Jesus and the world is all in a rage about separation of Church and State. Let a school board say they want alternatives to Darwinism taught in their local schools and the ACLU is on it like stink on a monkey! There would be calls from the out reaches of the Outback for Christians to apologize!
Where is the outrage!?!
Father in Heaven, I pray in Jesus’ Name for these ones of yours who have lost their lives. I pray for these ones who are suffering the loss of their families, their property, their churches. Lord, have mercy on those who curse your people. We bless our enemies and pray for their forgiveness. Father, comfort your people who suffer for the Name of Christ. Anguish fills my heart, and I cannot contain my sorrow for these ones who belong to you. Lord hear our prayers. Consider the threats and violence against your people and strengthen them so they will be able to stand, give them courage to proclaim your truth, and stretch out your hand and enable them, Lord, to honor your Name among your enemies. We bless You Lord.
Soli Deo Gloria!
Here’s some irony:
“Some of these people — especially Mr. Dawkins — spend a lot of time insulting the millions of folks who disagree with them, so you would think they would have a little tougher skin,” said Mark Mathis, one of the film’s producers. “The funny thing is they are whining about the fact that the film is going to allow them to insult people on a much larger stage.”
. . .
“I’ve never seen a bigger bunch of hypocrites in my life,” said Mathis, who set up the interviews for EXPELLED. “I went over all of the questions with these folks before the interviews and I e-mailed the questions to many of them days in advance. The lady (and gentleman) doth protest too much, methinks.”
You see what I mean? I’ll be anxious to see how many people who are opposed to religion decy these acts of Muslims as they decry the acts of Christians. What sad, sad hypocrisy! Would that the world could see the truth they claim to be looking for!
