Present day martyrs

I cannot believe I had not heard this story before today. In recent news I’ve heard about Halle Berry getting pregnant by her boyfriend, Britney Spears losing custody of her kids and Keifer Sutherland getting another DUI. Yeah, that’s what is important in our world.

On September 28th in Kano, Nigeria in a school of an estimated 1,500 muslims and maybe a dozen Christians, one Christian student was accused of drawing a cartoon of Muhammed on the wall of the school. Mind you there are Muslims at prayer at all times in this school and not really a feasible way that any person would have had opportunity to do this, but that is the accusation.

As a result, at least 10 (possibly more as there is an apparent government cover up of the situation), Christians were killed in the streets of Kano. Another 61 are reported injured. All of the Christian churches were torched and destroyed. Many, many Christian homes were destroyed as well. Preachers and servicemen trying to help out the Christians were arrested.

This is what is going on in our world today.

    This whole post was sad to me, in many different ways! Our world is really falling apart in some ways (especially the moral, biblical world)Thanks for sharing this though, I tend to separate myself into my own little world sometimes and miss important things such as the Nigerian Christian Attack/Slaughter.
