Protesters banged on a church bell and chanted, “With our spirit, with our blood we will sacrifice ourselves for you, Jesus.”
I am humbled ans ashamed by what Christians in other countries have to endure. America was once considered a Christian country and we allowed a nobody with no experience to become president to finish us off and say we are no longer a Christian country. We allow our government officials to vote for homosexual agendas and abortion without consequences for them. I, for one, will do everything in my power to oust Mary Landrieu from her Senate position for just such votes. We have stand strong and fight for our Christian beliefs (in our own country-I never thought I would see the day).
I have heard reports for years through Christian ministries which are active in the Middle-East that young, Christian girls are frequently abducted from their families, forced to convert to Islam, and then married off into an Islamic household. Impossible to confirm what happened without the facts in this case.
Had a unforgettable History professor that lectured on the highly successful 8th century “Convert to Islam or Die” campaign across North Africa.
Of course the Anglicans/Episcopalians have far more problems than that. That sect is becoming a women's club social organization and a civic society like Garden Club or Rotarians.
Funny how often this kind of thing repeats itself in the Islamic world. Always, they are there of their own free will, especially a bride right after her wedding. Always, they fear reprisals from their (former?) congregation. Jews and Christians from Pakistan to Egypt sure are vindictive sobs./sarc
