The people of southern Sudan live with terrorism and slavery every day, says a Sudanese Episcopal bishop visiting the Richmond area.

"Christians in the Sudan are being killed and churches are being burned," said Nathaniel Garang Anyieth, bishop of the Diocese of Bor of the Episcopal Church of Sudan.

Sudanese oil is sold in the United States by Amoco and BP gas stations, Handy said. "I have preached from a number of pulpits: 'At least don't buy Amoco and BP gas. At least don't finance the killing of Christians.'"

no more BP or Amoco for me.

For a related story,

http://www.syracuse.com/search/index.ssf?/base/sports-0/101214511911218144.xml?syr

BTW I heard that Sunoco and BP were only non-Saudi petrols, looks like Sunoco is the only one left on the list.

This is the second story on this case of genocide against Christians posted here. Thank God it's finally getting out, no thanks to the major media.

"The Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska brought the three to the United States for a two-month stay to tell people about the persecution of Christians in Sudan...."

Stop flapping your gums. Stand up and DO something. Your church has money. Fight back!

In addition to prayers and funding, many of us are also working the system on behalf of the brethren.

We must also remember John 16:33.

Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham, recently said that the Islamic government also has cut off humanitarian flights into southern Sudan, and that Christian relief organizations are being bombed.

There goes that fundamentalist bigot, Franklin Graham, spouting hate and bigotry against those peaceful Muslims again!

Our fellowship helps support a mission called Far Reaching Ministries that is headed by Wes Bentley. They run a chaplain training school in Southern Sudan and are daily reminded that there is a war going on. And it's not just the Sudanese gov't, but also Moslem thugs that rob, rape and destroy at will. The camp is shelled on a regular basis and they have had numerous injuries (and a couple of fatalities).

For some reason, the world has turned a blind eye to the carnage that is Sudan. While Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, etal harp about injustice and reparations in the U.S., there is literally a slave industry going on today in Sudan (and these people are being sold into other countries, ie Libya). But I suppose as long as it's Black on Black slavery, it's okay with them.

What needs to happen is a response such as that towards South Africa during Apartheid. The evil is the Sudan, Nigeria, etc... is just as great. If our religious leaders decided to be "tolerant" only of other folks who didn't persecute christians, maybe that would be a start.

I encourage everybody to talk to their local pastors and encourage a boycott of companies profiting off the death of christians in the Sudan for a start. There are enough church members here, in enough denominations, to make an impact that could swell into a mass movement.

I care about the persecuted blacks in S. Africa and the Sudan. The left doesn't give a rip, because while the ANC was Marxist, these are just christians here being tortured, raped, and killed by members of the religion of peace.

The Bush administration doesn't seem to give a rip, because they have a blind spot for oil. There are enough concerned, americans, christians, to change this though. The duopoly of the religion of peace loving media, and oil loving administration needs to be told in no uncertain terms that they are being watched... and judged.

It's not the Sudanese oil that's guilty of complicity with genocide, it's BP and Amoco. That's enough reason to boycott these two companies, regardless of where that particular oil ends up.

Cicero is right. It isn't the oil that is evil, it is the companies dealing with the Sudanese government. If somebody unzips and pees into the ocean, ya don't boycott swimming, ya just kick the snot out of the culprit.

Where's black America on this one? Where's the voices of rage? Where's the songs of freedom? Instead, we hear the voice and work of Franklin Graham. Slavery, genocide..I guess apartheid wins hands down as a political game. The other two aren't as sexy.

If we lived in a Free country, we could be holding telethons to pay for weapons and airdrops to the people in the south of Sudan.

Sadly, we don't.

Another U.N. failure. A few arms won't help much.

They need billions to create another Israeli type of fortress.

And we know how that works.

These people of that region are like a group of stray cats that have over extended their resources. They depend on outside assistance and when they get it, they grow some more.

It is a impossible situation. A totally impossible situation.

Twice in September, the government of Sudan bombed the community where Samaritan’s Purse operates a hospital. Those attacks were followed by a ban on relief flights that cut the support and escape lifelines for more than a dozen of our international relief workers. Meanwhile, Sudan’s civil war escalated and peace talks broke off.

Dr. Warren Cooper of Chicago is among dozens of international doctors who have served at the Samaritan's Purse hospital in southern Sudan. His tiny patient is among more than 100,000 who have been treated at the hospital in the last three years.

"When several thousand white Kosovars were killed and tens of thousands displaced, the world called it genocide. But sadly, when 1.9 million Africans are killed and millions more displaced, tortured, and even sold into slavery, our world leaders remain strangely silent." — Franklin Graham

Since 1983, a civil war has been raging in Sudan between a militant Islamic government and black-largely Christian-tribespeople in the south. It is estimated that nearly 2 million Sudanese have lost their lives and 5 million more have been displaced.

"I would like to know how we can pull our money..."

Maybe all those who are serious should get together (electronically or in person) and discuss some ideas.

This is not new news. This started happening during the Clintoonian years.

Je$$e HiJack$on and the unreverend Al $harpton have ignored the massive murders, rapes and Christians being sold into slavery as these crimes are not being committed old white Southerns who died in the last two centuries.

BTW: In all fairness to Bush, he has no choice. Until (and if ever) the U.S. becomes energy independent, it will continue to operate at the mercy of (hostile) foreign oil sources.

Bump for your post, great links, cartoons, etc.

In FRegards to "fairness for Bush", yes we are between rock and a hard spot for oil right now, especially with the economy in the it's current shape, BUT THE ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN SILENT ON ANWR SINCE 9-11.

Common sense would tell us that we should drill here instead of buying from terrorists, even if the wackos were right and it would kill every harp seal in the artic.

All we get is more "religion of peace" propoganda from Powell. The Sowdees may love being murdering mohammadans, but they love $$$$ more. If domestic drilling were to start, so would public decapitations of terrorists in Mecca. The price of oil would go down in conjunction with the drill depth in ANWR. By the time the wells were on line, our ragheaded friends would have the price so low, we could cap the wells and just keep them there for insurance.

Well, how much marching in front of corperate headquarters and suing of US businesses could these people do if the Mohammadans were to leave them alone? They are of no use to the ASs and JJs in the US.

The ones sold into slavery are just going to be "tent slaves" anyhow. < sarcasm >

Tbese elite black racists and our first black president did not want to hear about the slaughter and enslavement of these poor people. There was no political capital nor money to be extorted. So they just forgot about this terrible tragedy.

Kofi Annan is a Muslim. Bhoutros was also a Muslim. I wonder why Muslims get to lead the UN? Maybe that helps to explain the silence on Sudan.

I am generally a Bush apologist on this site, but this chaps my hide. At the very least, I would hope that covert activity against the aggressors is being pursued.

"Where is the Sudan government being funded from to find the extra resouces for it's jihad?"

Take your pick--any or all of Libya, Saudi Arabia, Iran. Name any Muslim nation that has oil wealth available and you have a source of funding.
