Ecumenism, Moslem-Style

Here's some of the article from Catholic World News; Iraqi Christians shaken anew by Orthodox priest's murder

Baghdad, Apr. 7, 2008 (CWNews.com) - Iraqi Christians joined in mourning after a Syrian Orthodox priest was murdered in Baghdad on April 5.

Father Yusef Adel was shot and killed by unidentified gunmen in the Iraqi capital. The killing occurred less than 3 weeks after Chaldean Catholic Archbishop Faraj Raho was found dead, after having been kidnapped from outside his cathedral in Mosul.

Syrian Orthodox Bishop Matti Shaba Matoka presided at the funeral for Father Adel, with Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Emmanuel III Delly and the apostolic nuncio, Archbishop Francis Chulikatt, representing the city's Catholic leadership.

The AsiaNews service reported that the new killing caused "great fear" among Iraq's Christians, who have seen a drive by Islamic militants to drive the religious minority out of the country.

Hmmmm....must've missed this, as I was busy this last week informally advising a friend who works for a local municipality about whether or not he should honor one person's request for footbaths as part of improving a municipal facility. I s*** you not. Pandering to a fraction of 1% of the local population in a small area like this...ummm, that's a NO. Which begs the question, do they spend the footbath money on a few of those cool Dyson handdryer thingies, or save it for their legal defense fund should the ACLU find out about this!
