Kaduna [Catholic] Church Hit in Nigeria Suicide Bomb Attack
BBC ^ | 10/28/12

At least seven people have been killed and dozens injured in a suicide bombing during mass at a Catholic church in northern Nigeria, officials say.

The attack happened in Kaduna, scene of many sectarian attacks.

The blast was caused by at least one vehicle being driven towards the church loaded with explosives, witnesses said. The building was badly damaged.

A spokesman for the local governor has called for calm, pleading with people on local radio not to retaliate.

The Nigerian Emergency Management Agency told the BBC that Christian youths attacked a vehicle which came to rescue survivors after the attack, smashing one of the windows.

Unconfirmed reports said at least two people were killed in reprisal attacks by Christians after the bombing.

No group has said it carried out the bombing, but Islamist group Boko Haram has been involved in several similar attacks in the area.

The attack happened at St Rita's church in the Malali neighbourhood of the city.

Reports say a car drove up to the gate of the church, was refused entry and detonated its explosives outside the church.

The church was surrounded by soldiers and police after the blast, and ambulances were taking the injured to hospital.

Nigeria is roughly divided between a largely Muslim north, and the south, where Christianity and traditional religions dominate.

Kaduna is on the dividing line between the two areas. The BBC's Will Ross in Kaduna says many people have come to the city in recent months in search of sanctuary from violence in other parts of northern Nigeria.

Standard call not to retaliate. Maybe, instead, we need to stop turning the other cheek. The Crusades could make a comeback, Muslims and Christians cannot exist as equals without the endless drive for Muslims to kill, convert or enslave the Christians.

This will be reported as “7 die in violent attack.”
There will be no condemnation from the current occupant of the White House.
Meaning that both the media and the imposter aren’t angry over the murders.

Nearly every week now a Mooze Lame suicide bomber murders a group of innocents at a Catholic Church in Nigeria.

When will Bill and Hillary Clinton be demanding that King Barry send in bombers and troops to stop the awful violence? He dragged NATO into peace keeping and bombing Christians who he claimed were murdering Mooze Lames, what's the holdup with bombing Mooze Lames who are blowing up Christians?

I'd also like to know where the people who volunteered to be human shields for Sadaam and his hideous regime' have vanished to. Why aren't Shawn Penn, Kenneth O'Keefe and his idiot followers, Dennis Kucinich, Jesse Jackson, and the tens of thousands of American, French, British, and Italian, "students", who were sobbing over the idea of a bomb aimed at Sadaam accidentally hitting a mosque or an innocent Mooze Lame?

If even one percent of those loudmouths had a single drop of honesty in their body every Catholic Church in Nigeria would be surrounded by peace loving human shields. There would also be big news about a massive upcoming Rock concert to help those who have already been victims of Mooze Lame terrorists as well as large protest marches in every single Is Lame Ick country all paid for by multimillionaire Hollywood "progressives".

I looks like those who claim that murdering your children by abortion is a human right also think murdering Catholics is a human right. I wish someone would film one of the loudmouthed genocidal sluts who run Planned Parenthood being asked exactly that; do they believe that like abortion murdering Catholics and other Christians is a Human Right that should never be interfered with.
