Muslim Gunmen Attack Church in CAR
Voice of America ^ | May 28, 2014

Posted on 05/29/2014 12:14:51 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Muslim rebels have killed at least 11 people seeking refuge in a church in the capital of Central African Republic.

Witnesses to the attack Wednesday in Bangui say as many as 30 were killed.

They say Muslim gunmen threw grenades and fired bullets into the church compound.

It was the worst attack blamed on Muslims since their Seleka rebel group was ousted from power in January.

Chaos and violence has run rampant in CAR since Seleka rebels seized power last year. They began looting and killing Christians, who formed a militia that launched reprisals against Muslim civilians.

Thousands of Muslims have fled for their lives from Bangui.

I wondered why they did not attack it in a TRUCK.

That's a switch.

If this is inter-sect fighting, not so much a switch.

It’s definitely a switch. This time it’s Christians who are chasing muslims, not the other way around.

It doesn’t sound characteristically Christian though. I could see guarding their community; I can’t see counter-raids on a Muslim community.

“Christian” in a deep Africa situation can get pretty weird. It’s easy to get hybrid forms of worship with animistic religions, odd syncretisms, and miss most of the classic biblical vision of God. That doesn’t happen so much in the USA.

It’s more likely it’s a muzzzie planted news report to get obama to come in and eradicate those mean, ole Christians. Bosnia replay?

Maybe they can’t say truck as one knows more crows and killed my trucks then cars.

Because crows can only say caw caw and not truck.

It’s the only thing that will keep jihadis heads down.

Christians sometimes try to act like Christians... that surprises you?

Not learning from 1400 years of turning the other cheek to a worldwide theo-imperialistic cancer surprises me.

So many here whine about “dumb Jooz voting dem over and over even though it’s not just bad for America, it’s bad for Israel!”

Which part of repeatedly appeasing the scum who are pledged to convert, enslave or kill Christians makes sense to you?

I won’t debate theology, but unless y’all have. turned Into Quakers, I don’t see how letting yourself get converted, enslaved or killed serves the purpose of bringing more people to Christ.

(And of course I feel EXACTLY the same way about jinos, zionists, Israelis, whatever and whichever placating jihadic scum.. Anyone who ignores an opportunity to eradicate cancer will likely get it).

Christians believe in Christ. You are surprised?
