And I with you!
Stop all immigration of those people.
And, their mosques are chambers of terror plotting
You forget the saying, “the blood of the Christian marytrs is the seeds for new Christians”.
Those martyrs are witnesses for Christ and the the faith. This is why they were declared saints this past weekend.
Yet in the end, the Muslims have simply helped plant the seeds for new Christian believers because those martyrs gave witness to Jesus and the power of the Gospel as proven by the hugh growth of the Christian faith in the global south.
Global south Christian faith is growing bigtime.
The Cathedral there is actually made up of the bones of those 800 martyrs!
Spent a lot of TDY time at Mt Jacotenente (near Vieste) myself during the mid 90s (radar site we had during the Balkans).
You always have a choice. We have a choice to not pay taxes, yet we choose to pay them knowing they go against some values.
Martyrs only serve to reduce the population. The goal is to make the person trying to kill you die, not to die needlessly.
Please see post number 55 and get back to me please. Thank-you!

First of all, thank-you for your service to the USA.
Second, you must have surprised by seeing all those skulls of those Christian martyrs stacked up on top of each other.
Still the Christian population goes up and up.
It’s good the hear that a more sane religion is moving into the islamo regions. Hopefully, the muzzies that use deadly force to try and stop it are eliminated quickly.
Increasing Christian numbers should help to stunt the growth of islamowhacks. A good trait of Christianity is that one is not required to become a follower under threat of death.
Yes, it was awe-inspiring and gruesome at once. That those men all died rather than give up on Jesus Christ says a lot. I believe each gained his place in Heaven that day.
I was told about it before going in the Cathedral, so knew it would be so, but still, seeing it was something.
Of course they are men. Every sinner is a man, a part of mankind. He was created for God's glory. He is encumbered by a corrupted nature and the chains of concupiscence. He needs what you need, and what I need, too: to know Christ, to receive salvation and to follow His way: to love what He loves, and hate what He hates.
Did you not read the part about God hates a lying tongue?
Did you miss the part about, while we were yet His enemies, Christ died for us?
Praise God for these martyrs of Otranto, whose blood is more powerful than our prating online palaver.
