Catholic Priest Beheaded in Syria by Al-Qaeda-Linked Rebels as Men and Children Take Pictures and Cheer

Jun. 30, 2013

Syrian Catholic priest Francois Murad killed last weekend by jihadi fighters was beheaded, according to a report by Catholic Online which is linking to video purportedly showing the brutal murder.

As TheBlaze reported last week, Murad, 49, was setting up a monastery in Gassanieh, northern Syria. Last Sunday, on the Christian leader’s Sabbath, extremist militants trying to topple President Bashar Assad breached the monastery and grabbed Murad.

While earlier reports suggested Murad may have been shot to death, Catholic Online reported Saturday: “The Vatican is confirming the death by beheading of Franciscan Father, Francois Murad, who was martyred by Syrian jihadists on June 23.”

Did Obama buy the jihadist the sword or just the arms used to capture the priest?

Perhaps Obama can send them a guillotine to make this much more efficient.

Apparently:

So, is this viewed as having been done done in our name, so when the sky falls, it falls on all?

I was hoping if/when it comes, it would be more like those precision targeted tungsten rods from space that obama is planning to hit Snowden with.

I screwed up posting the link. This was what I meant to show you:

Catholic Priest Beheaded in Syria by Al-Qaeda-Linked Rebels

I pray obama that either Proverbs 16:18 has its way with him and we all learn and profit from it.

Or, even better for everyone, he get the Saul experience/conversion and suddenly turns into the world's most honest and benevolent man and lays bare his secrets and of those who control him and the source of his conversion experience.

We'll just have to wait and see what He has planned.

A priest is murdered by Islamofascists backed by the American government, and your first instinct is to blame the Pope ??

Every time McCain, Kerry or Obama appear in public they should be asked to comment on their policy supporting these barbarians.
