Along with Pope Francis and so many others, I was deeply saddened to learn of the latest violence by fanatics who see anybody who disagrees with them as their enemy.
These attacks threaten civilization itself.
Whether it’s a massacre in Paris, Indonesia, Nigeria, Syria, Iraq, Iran, India or now in Libya and Egypt, we keep saying, “How much worse can it get?”
And then we woke up Monday morning to see that it did get worse, with this brutal massacre of these young Egyptian Christians in Libya.
They were beheaded for nothing less than their religious convictions. It moves me to prayers. It moves me to tears, yes, as a Christian, but also as an American, who recognizes religious freedom as “our first and most cherished liberty.”
No denying it: There is an orchestrated phobia of Christianity throughout the world today, a coordinated effort on behalf of fanatics to see that true religion which stands for friendship, peace, the dignity of the human person and the sacredness of human life, is stamped out.
These aren’t sporadic attacks. This is part of an orchestrated fanaticism, an ideology that sees Christianity, Judaism and any religion of peace as the enemy.THESE ORCHESTRATED ATTACKS WILL NOT STOP ON THEIR OWN.
THESE ISLAMISTS MUST BE MADE TO STOP - BY ERADIATING THEM.
WE ERADICATE THEM BY USING EVERYTHING IN OUR ARSENAL.
WHATEVER BEST GETS EACH JOB DONE.
THE SONER THE BETTER.
AFTER IRAN GETS A NUKE, IT WILL ONLY GET A LOT HARDER AND THE COSTS ONLY A LOT MORE HORRIFIC...
