Catholics Learn To Fight Back
I hope the Europeans are taking notes

No one likes reading of the riots and deaths in Nigeria, but at least Catholics are fighting back against the moslems. As reported by the Washington Post;

In northern Maiduguri, where the Christian Association of Nigeria says 50 Christians were killed in a weekend riot that began as a protest against cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, tensions were high during several Christian funerals.

A crowd of Christian youths broke away from the burial of one of the victims, a Catholic priest, and ran shouting through the streets before police dispersed them.

At Onitsha's ruined central mosque, one of two reportedly destroyed Tuesday, Ifeanyi Eze, 34, picked up a piece of charred wood and scrawled on a low wall: "Mohammad is a man but Jesus is from above." On the walls of the abandoned mosque, others had written: "No Mohammad, Jesus Christ is Lord."

Ifeanyi expressed amazement that cartoons published in Europe could set off violence in Africa. "This thing happened in Denmark," Ifeanyi said. "How could that be causing havoc in another part of Nigeria?"

Well, Ifeanyi, moslems don't need a reason... just an excuse.

And I'll admit it, the Washington Post doesn't exactly portray in the best light the Catholics that are fighting back... but hey, we're talking the Washington Post here. Oh, and in case I forget, I'd like to add that Catholics have been shit on for centuries in Nigeria by the moslems.

Anyone remember Biafra?

The other day I belive a Priest in the Vatican said something relating to this cartoon thing about how we don't always need to turn the other cheek, when enough is enough we need to be prepaired to defend ourselves.

It is normative in the Christian life to suffer injustice rather than be unjust, but I can certainly understand what has happened here and expect more of it in the future. Our most basic instinct is self preservation and defense.

I am leaning heavily toword the belief that God will rain justice down on the heads of muslims. How that will come about only God knows.

Enough is enough.

Jesus never said what to do when you run out of cheeks to turn but defending one's faith seems like a good idea to me.
