There was a surge of anti-Christian violence by Muslims around the world that included the destruction of nearly 200 Christian churches in Nigeria during a short period around October, according to a new report from the GateStone Institute.
The organization’s Raymond Ibrahim, who has documented his discoveries in “Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War in Christians,” released the assessment of the recent surge on Friday.
“In just two months, from August to October, nearly 200 Christian churches were destroyed in Nigeria by the Islamic organization Boko Haram and its Muslim allies, after their capture of towns and villages in the northeastern states of Borno and Adamawa,” the report said. “In the words of Rev. Gideon Obasogie, the director of Catholic Social Communication of Maiduguri Diocese in Borno State, ‘the group’s seizure of territory in both states has seen 185 churches torched and over 190,000 people displaced by [Boko Haram.]”
Ibrahim noted that, “Also in October, the Center for the Studies of Global Christianity in the United States concluded that, ‘About 100,000 Christians die every year because of their religious beliefs, that is to say one every five minutes. In addition, in many countries, many other religious minorities suffer violence and persecution. In countries such as Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Cameroon, Sudan, Pakistan, Somalia and Egypt the Christian elderly, women, men and their children live in conditions of total insecurity. They are driven from their homes; put in prison for blasphemy, and brutally killed during liturgical celebrations, churches are burned. Girls are kidnapped and forced to marry.’”
Among the other incidents of Muslim violence against Christians during that October period that were uncovered by Ibrahim include:
Actually Lou, you would be surprised what you would agree with in Scripture. For instance, (not aimed at you), Proverbs says in essence, you can't fix stupid. We are repeatedly, called to be humble. Love your neighbor. Whether you agree with the essence of Christ is a whole different matter, but I contend there are a number of Scriptural concepts that you would agree with wholeheartedly. In fact, most of it is based around common sense. You might be surprised.
and Boehner tried to blame everything on harry reid, when it was the chicken shit speaker of the house that was too ball less to stand up to the democrats.
Right Al, the man has to be wearing lace panties under his suit. Hope he falls down from one of his Drunks, and breaks his neck. Actually, I think he was paid to leave his Balls in the drawer, great way to make a hell of a lucrative living!!
This will make NBC's headlines for SURE!
the aclu and the leader of Germany must be having orgasms over this
every church should keep a copy of the Koran in it so when muslims burn it then they are really burning allah
ARE OUR AMERICAN CHURCHES RISING UP AND DEMANDING THIS PERSECUTION STOP? No - the Presbyterian U.S.A. church is actually boycotting Israel as the oppressor - and ignoring the Muslims. The Christian churches in America are sponsoring the illegal aliens and abetting the destruction of our demographic vote.
We have a huge voice in America - the voice of our churches who preach the role of the disciple. What are they doing with that obligation? They are IGNORING their brothers and sisters who are being slaughtered and then making themselves feel good by harboring and sponsoring illegals. Americans are suffering and our churches are committed to bringing in those we cannot support or educate. WE CANNOT SUPPORT THE WORLD. We can barely support our own. If you want to support the world, then go forth and be a missionary, but do not destroy our economy and demographics and culture in your blind obligation of faith.
I feel our churches need to go back to the Old Testament and take notes.
