MSM Says, "Evil Christians Slaughter Innocent Muslims"

From AP:

JOS, Nigeria – Muslim volunteers discovered Friday that sectarian violence in central Nigeria this week extended beyond the long-restive city of Jos and into the burned shell of what used to be a small village near it.

Both Christians and Muslims died during the violence that began Sunday in the central Nigerian city once known as a prime tourist destination in West Africa. The nonprofit group Human Rights Watch puts the death toll among both religions at more than 200. More than 5,000 people have been displaced.

However, as Muslim volunteers arrived in the village of Kurujantar — about 18 miles (30 kilometers)south of Jos — they found corpses shoved three-at-a-time into sewer pits, pushed into communal wells and scattered in bushes. One volunteer held up the charred body of an infant that lay inside a cardboard box.

Nearly all the mud-walled homes in the one-time mining town suffered fire damage or had been destroyed. The central mosque, where residents say both the young and old sought refuge during an attack Tuesday, sat burned, ashes spread across the floor where the faithful once prayed.

Community leader Wardhead Umaru Baza, 58, said Friday that more than 300 were dead from the violence, which lasted seven hours. He said he hid in a hole as rioters armed with new and locally made firearms shot residents in the mostly Muslim village.



I say GOOD! GREAT!

But Pastorius, how could you say such a thing?

Because they aren't peaceful. Here's how the violence started:

In Jos city, Plateau state, about 200 Muslim youths attacked Christians near St. Michael’s Catholic Church, according to local sources of Christian Solidarity Worldwide. The human rights organization reported that Muslim youths congregated to renovate a house next to St. Michael’s Catholic Church, owned by a man who allegedly killed three Christians in the November 2008 sectarian violence in Jos.

But instead of renovating, the youths reportedly assaulted a female passerby before attacking St. Michael’s Church. They also set fire to several churches, including a Christ Apostolic Church and two Evangelical Church of West Africa churches, as well as local houses and businesses.

In retaliation, Christian youths launched a counter-attack, including lighting mosques on fire, and soon violence spread to other areas of Jos.

Seriously, what do you think the Christians should have done, turn the other cheek? Invite the crazed Jihadists into other churches, so they could burn them down too?

For once, Christians fight back (as they ought to do if they want their churches, their Bibles, and their culture to remain in existence), and they are criticized for it.

Christians must fight for their continued existence, if they are given no other choice. If they don't fight, they are not protecting their families, and the future of the spread of knowledge about their God.

Yes, you learn in kindergarten that if you don't hit the bully back, you will be continaully brutalized. At some point, you have to protect yourself and hit the bully back. Turning the other cheek is very noble, but in death there are no cheeks left to turn.

Yes, and turning the other cheek is downright immoral when the lives of your loved ones and the existence of your Faith is at stake.

Pastorius,

So true. A very dear friend recently gave me "The Tao of Willie" as a gift. What a great book. I was struck though, in a chapter entitled "The Golden Rule," by a comment he makes toward the end of the small chapter. He says: "As much as I admire the nonviolent message of Ghandi, the Golden Rule ultimately provides REASON in situations where nonviolence leaves some tough alternatives. After all, I am only a man, and doubt that my belief in nonviolence would restrain my human reaction if you mess with my family."

Gotta love Wille!

P.S. Love this site too. So many of you out there standing strong and fighting the fight that others deny in our midst! Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

You really mean that innocent people ought to die becouse they by incidence share the belief of murderes. That attitude is for sure going to destroy all of Jos and all of it's citizens - If not all of Nigeria. I don't sat that we should turn the other cheek to murderes, but killing random people for revenge only escalates the hell going on in Jos.

Muslims have no regret about killing Christians, Jews, and Infidels without distinction as to who is a good person and who is a bad person.

How do you think Christians should respond?
