Explosion Rocks Church In Bauchi During Morning Mass!

By NewsAdmin on September 23, 2012

A bomb explosion hit the St. John’s Catholic Church, around the Bayan Gari area of Bauchi(*) on Sunday morning as a suicide bomber detonated a bomb while the church was holding a morning mass. The intensity of the explosion was reportedly high as people in the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Hospital claimed to have heard it loudly. Police sources said only the suicide bomber died while about 46 people were injured. Red Cross sources disclosed that three people died while about 50 were injured. Security operatives have taken over the area. Mohammed Hassan, the spokesman of the Bauchi State Police Command confirmed the incident. There had been attacks on several churches during service hours earlier in the year.

Bauchi came under terror attacks just last week when gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect shot and killed the former Comptroller General of the Nigerian Prisons Service, Ibrahim Jarma.

The terrorists went ahead ahead to burn his house the day after.

The first time I ever heard someone just totally waylay Islam as a “Religion of Evil” was from a Nigerian Christian I used to work with (this was before 9/11)....and the first I ever heard about Muslim atrocities against Christians

Islamic Terrorism is evil, and it has to be stopped. Heck...we cannot even get our politicians to call it “Islamic Terrorism”

I am sure we won’t hear anything from Obama or Clinton, about it being vile and disgusting. They would say that the church is to blame for practicing their religion which offends the terrorists. They would say how they support freedom of religion unless it insults Muslims.

Everywhere on the periphery of Islamic spread there is anti-Christian violence. Day, in, day out, no matter what else is going on, the terror acts are there: in Indonesia, India (there also often Hindu), Pakistan, Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, Nigeria, Egypt, The Gaza Strip, Syria, Lebanon, Macedonia, Kosovo. I purposely exclude Afghanistan and Iraq from the list, because these two have the excuse of being at war with us.

insulted muslim

This kind of thing has gone on long before that silly movie.

However, now that you bring this up, of all Christians the Copts have the most reason to actually hate Mohammed: it is their schools and churches being destroyed with regularity since the ouster of Mubarak.
