You find a couple of dozen bad people that call themselves Muslim and paint the 1.5 billion Muslims of the world as evil. Some ******** like Fred Phelps comes along and you say his acts don't portray Christians as a whole because he's not really a Christian. The reality is that bad people come in all faiths.
It's exactly that uneducated religious intolerance that propagates religious hatred through the millennia. Thanks for highlighting that for us. Do us a favor though and keep it to yourself instead of teaching our children to hate others because their belief in God is different than yours.
More evidence of peaceful Muslims and their embrace of Christian "cultural centers". Look at what they do in the countries where they predominate, and you can know the truth of Islam, like all those who aren't Islamic but still in those countries. Don't let it happen to America. Islam is an ideology, unworthy to be considered a religion, more than any other destructive cult.
Those were the desperate prayers of the Iraqis held hostage during mass on Sunday -- a crisis that ended in a bloodbath:
Around 5:20 p.m., as the Christian worshipers stood and recited "Upon this rock I will build my church," the gunfire started on the street outside.
Suddenly a large explosion rocked Our Lady of Salvation Church in Baghdad. Bullets whistled by. Some worshipers ran to the church basement. Mikhal darted into the priests' changing room. A barrage of bullets thundered in the main hall....
..."Oh Mary, Christ, God, please protect us," they whispered and sobbed.
The attack came during a Sunday evening Mass celebrating the church's founding. And even in a place where a sectarian war has killed hundreds in car bombings, executions and mass kidnappings, the seizure of the Syrian Catholic Church, with 120 worshipers inside, ranked among the worst acts in the country's recent history.
