Being a Christian carries a death sentence now
The Telegraph ^ | 09/23/2013 | Cristina Odone

Posted on 09/23/2013 1:56:12 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

In Pakistan, suicide bombers in Peshawar killed 60 Christians in their local church. In Nairobi, gunmen shot 69 (and counting) shoppers at a mall — but freed the ones who could name the Prophet's mother. What these two tragedies have in common is that the killers were Muslim and the victims, Christian. The other similarity will be the response of the West: gentle reproaches followed by… nothing.

Being a Christian, in some parts of the world, carries a death sentence. It carries little weight — and attracts a lot of opprobrium — in this part of the world. Having done their best to erase God from public life, secular authorities have stealthily loosened our identity as Christians. As I have written in my ebook, "No God Zone", traditional ceremonies, rituals and even pledges have been suppressed because of their "religiosity". Thus, when we witness the sufferings of our "brothers and sisters in Christ", we feel only a twinge, where once we would have felt a shock.

OK people, let’s make this a useful thread...tell us all the answer to “WHo is Mohammeds Mother?” so we can commit it to memory...because if I am asked.(that is assuming I have not used my side arm to render the questioner to be assuming room temperature)..I am guessing they won’t accept “I don’t know her name, but I DO know YOu are a son of a b*tch!”

We are in midst of one of the worst ones.

In Norway, Vikernes and his cohorts were burning churches to the tune of one a week, and going back over the record of what the Norwegian Police knew it’s obvious that they had free reins.

Vikernes was not arrested before he *absolutely* had to be.

It will simply create new Christians. As the saying goes, “the blood of the Christian marytrs IS the seeds for NEW CHRISTIANS”.

Even Abraham knew what to do with rabid animals.........

Religion of peace, my butt! They rape, and murder women and children...that is NOT “peace”.
This politically correct horsechit is going to destroy us all.
They are Muslims indeed...but those that are rabid must be culled from the herd! And from what I have seen in the past 20 years or more...there is a whole lot of rabid there!

No, not nuts, just the facts.

That saying came from a famous early Christian Church father, named Tertullian from the 2nd century.

Sadly they think that. Just wait until they have to deal with their Mohammedan oppressors.

It would appear, from Bible prophecy, it will get much, much worse.
