Boko Harem Jihadis Attack Catholic Mass, Kill Worshippers Comments

On the 4th Sunday of Easter, April 29, 2012, the faithful gathered for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass being offered at Kano's Bayero University. Evil Islamic jihadists used small explosives to draw the faithful out and then shot those who fled.  The blood of the martyrs is flowing as militant Islamic terrorism increases and establishes a new beachhead in Africa. Africa is one of the great centers of the renewal of the Church ...

    It's time to unleash hell on these muslim acolytes of satan! An epic world Crusade to rid the world of muslim cowards that murder babies, children and the innocent! Is there anything good about Islam?

    Thank you for using the correct words "evil" and "jihad". Thank you. I am so sick of Islamic Jihad being called "insurgency", "civil unrest" and "ethnic strife". I am an actress. I am used to examining MOTIVATIONS behind the actions in my line of work; wish our journalists were similarly curious. In the stifling world of moral relativism / moral equivalency, it is so refreshing to hear things called by their proper names!

    As I remind my friends, for African and Asian Christians everyday is another 9/11. And if our immigration policies do not change, we will go the way of Europe with enclaves governed by de facto Sharia and no-go zones such as swaths of Malmo, Sweden and Birmingham, England have now.

    In the meantime, let us study what the koran and sura teaches about killing. Here is a website I found (Please click or cut and paste). I am not an expert on muslim studies but I want to know why some muslims have done this.

    It is out of sheer ignorance of some where God is mistaken as an enemy, caused by the enemy itself, who sit in high places working through backseat peddling, playing on the mind & sentiments of people against the simplicity of Christ, thinking themselves to be gods, till are caught on the wrong side of God, which the Bible states as " terrible."

    RIP martyrs. The world community needs to work together to address the serious threat of increasing terrorism, especially of the Islamic variety. Stances on the War on Terror don't really matter when it comes to cases like these. Boko Harem and people like them need to be stopped!

    Deacon Keith it seems to me that even in the West the Governments are weak in their response to islamic jihad. There are European countries where militants march in the streets declaring death to USA and death to all who do not hold the beliefs of the muslims and nothing is done to arrest these guys who are full of hate speech and full of threats. There are even muslim enclaves who practice sharia law (which is in contradiction of Western law, and human rights) and they go unchallenged. This problem will not go away but will grow in severity and is a huge threat to our Western freedoms. We are on the verge of banning any speech which criticises islam - this so weakens our chances of upholding our own beliefs and of protecting those muslims who have come to the West to get away from the horrific sharia in muslim controlled countries - thanks for your piece - but this goes deeper and wider than anyone is willing to admit - Blessings - Rene

    There should be a message from the vatican to the govrnment to seat up and address the sittuation as fast as possible even if it means employing foreign aid cos the problem is going out of hand. We must continue to pray for Nigeria in Distress.

    People say they are afraid of Islam but don't want to understand it.
    Meanwhile, the liberal worldview is that Islam is just another religion - and that Christianity is just as bad.
    All we can do is pray for understanding and wisdom.
    And don't forget to put on the whole armor of God (Ephesians 6:11).
