Good Friday

There are so many attacks that you lose your ability to be aware of all of them.   The big ones are newsworthy for a while: Paris, Brussels.   A massive Easter bombing targeting Christian women and children  - 65 dead in Lahore, Pakistan, just because they were Christians.

The stats for the week of March 19 through March 25 alone:

Attacks:                21
Killed:                191
Injured:              386
Suicide Blasts:       8
Countries:            10

The toll for a full 30 days prior to March 25:

Attacks:                 147
Killed:                 1169
Injured:                3221
Suicide Blasts:        36
Countries:               25

The smaller ones get lost in the news flow.  Like the attack on a nursing home run by Sisters of Charity in Yemen.

On March 4, ISIS soldiers entered the compound of the nursing home, specifically looking for the nuns.  They first killed a guard and a driver.  Five Ethiopian Christians were killed as they ran to warn the nuns.  Four of the five nuns were located, tied, shot through the head, and had their heads smashed in.  A fifth escaped.

Sixteen, including several of the elderly the nuns cared for, were murdered that day.  And their priest was taken.  Rather than fleeing, Father Tom Uzhunnllil stayed to consume the consecrated hosts rather than leave the Blessed Sacrament to be treated sacrilegiously.  

ISIS declared that Father Tom would be tortured and crucified on Good Friday.   A Dubai-based prayer group with ties to the Missionary of Charity group in Yemen says that they carried out that threat.  May Father Tom rest in peace.

And may the very foolish who think they are safe from death at the hands of islam wake up soon. About half of muslims living in the US want sharia law.  About half of those who want sharia believe that the violence is an acceptable way to bring that about. Taqiyya could well mean, however, that the numbers are greater than that - lying to a poll would be quite acceptable.  And it is quite public now that there are muslim terrorist cells in every state in the US.

No atrocities are being committed in the name of Judaism.  Or of Lutheranism.  Of Mormonism, or Buddhism.  It wasn't a Presbyterian who stabbed another muslim to death in Scotland for wishing Christians "Happy Easter."  The smug left needs to stop asking "Why do they hate us?" and looking for welfare state and "let's be nice to them" solutions.  They hate us because we are not them.  Period. And given the opportunity they will brutalize us and our children for that reason and that reason alone.

"A voice is heard in Ramah, mourning and great weeping, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more."
