Taliban to Pope Benedict XVI: Stop Christian evangelism, or else

Taliban to Pope Benedict XVI: Stop Christian evangelism, or else

This issue is much broader than the grievance du jour, as demonstrated by the Taliban's citing of the case of Abdel Rahman. Ultimately, absurd as it is to tell a pope to speak out against evangelization, they are throwing down a gauntlet with an impossible demand in an attempt to widen the scope of the war: By refusing or ignoring the Taliban, or doing anything other than repudiating Jesus' own command to "go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations," the Vatican will have committed a hostile act in the eyes of the Taliban and its supporters in this regard, who believe freedom of conscience is a one-way street to Islam. And it just happens to coincide with his upcoming trip to the Middle East.

"Afghanistan: Taliban urges Pope to stop Christian conversion," from AdnKronos International, May 7:
Kabul, 7 May (AKI) - The Taliban on Thursday threatened "harsh reprisals" if Pope Benedict XVI does not immediately intervene to stop Christians proselytising in Afghanistan. In a message posted on their official website, the Taliban made the threat against the pope and Christians for spreading their faith.

The message followed video footage aired on Arabic satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera earlier this week apparently showing Christian soldiers proselytising outside the Afghan capital, Kabul, and handing out copies of the bible in Pashtun.

"We are sending out a message to the most important personality in the
Christian world - Pope Benedict XVI," read the message.

"If he does not immediately stop these stupid and irresponsible acts of proselytism by the crusaders, our reprisals and that of the Afghan people will be very harsh.

"Afghans are offended by this," the message said.

The message claimed that dozens of Christian missionaries are proselytising in Afghanistan under the guise of humanitarian non-governmental organisations.

It also said these groups are collaborating directly with American and other foreign troops in Afghanistan.

"They are taking advantage of the war and of needy Afghans, who are driven
towards the religious deviance of these groups," it said.

The message cited as examples the "apostate" Abdel Rahman who converted to
Christianity and gained asylum in Italy and a group of 23 South Korean missionaries kidnapped by the Taliban in July 2007.

It called on Afghans, especially religious leaders and intellectuals, to "repel the attacks on their faith which prolong the crusader war started by (former US president George W.) Bush".

Religious leaders and mujahadeen (holy warriors) must keep tabs on the movements of "enemies of Islam" and crusader occupiers" and prevent them from spreading "the propaganda of other religions in the land of Islam," the message said.

"All the supporters of (Afghan president) Hamid Karzai's regime, especially
the courts the justice and Islamic affairs ministries must apologise and condemn
these crusader acts.

"They must no longer allow them to take up arms against us, thus redeeming
themselves before Allah," the message concluded....

It should say "Christians, Jews, gays, Hindus, Buddhists, Wiccans, atheists, etc. - cease your existence or we will kill you."


Fixed.

Were those soldiers and missionaries even Roman Catholic?

Once again the Taliban show their utter lack of knowledge of the outside world.

Cowardly Muslims & Islamo Fascists have been threatening Popes for over 1400 years, this is no different...

Now go back and screw your donkey Mr. Taliban!

We should obey God, rather than men, said Peter to the Pharisees, when they told him to do likewise.
Every Christian should memorize their new testaments and begin devouring Foxe's Book of Christian Martyrs. Preparation is in order, mates.

Carlos Echevarria,

The Taliban's entire outlook practically requires ignorance. Knowledge might not only change their outlook on "Infidels," but it might lead them to doubting the rest of their faith in general. This one reason why the Taliban has not produced a lot of scientists. Things like Evolution, might lead too many of them to question Islam. Also, You really have to have a convoluted view of the world to see Islam as a victim and "Infidels" as evil brutes who have contributed nothing of value.
The same is true for every other hate filled, Islamic, totalitarian, theocratic, nut job.

Apparently, jihadomaniacs fear Christian evangelism.
