The MOST tragic aspect, however, is a this pastor is Pentecostal:
NO OTHER "CHRISTIAN" DENOMINATIONS WILL EVEN THINK ABOUT COMING TO HIS AID AND DEFENSE!!!
That the Hindus and Muslims worked together, that is. Repression and violence against Christians any where in the world no longer surprises me.
My pentecostal mother used to tell me that the Bible says that the last days will see Christians persecuted mercilessly everywhere. I did not understand what that meant and she said, harrassed, beaten, killed, just for being Christian. I didn't believe her. In my little Georgia home (outside Atlanta, before Atlanta gave way to the influx of thugs and gangs) most people I knew was Christian and wouldn't dare utter something bad about Jesus. Even the people that weren't Christian were revered as being religious, such as jews or hindus in the Asian world. They weren't bad, just different was how people in my school treated them. I couldn't conceive of a world where someone would be killed just for believing in Jesus.
I have to concede that my mother was correct. Sad it only took 30 years for that to come about. Even in America, Christians are being attacked in all ways, except physically. Yet.
