This is a Holy Week for Christians worldwide culminating in tomorrow’s Good Friday and of course Easter weekend.
We now know how al-Shabab feels about this Holy Week with this attack at a University in Kenya where they separated Muslims from Christians — and executed the Christians.
Foxs News reports Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for an attack at Garissa University in eastern Kenya Thursday that left at least 15 people dead, dozens more injured and hundreds of students unaccounted for.
“There are many dead bodies of Christians inside the building,” spokesman Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab told Sky News. “We are also holding many Christians alive. Fighting still goes on inside the college.”
Student Union Vice Chairman Collins Wetangula said “when the gunmen arrived at his dormitory he could hear them opening doors and asking if the people who had hidden inside whether they were Muslims or Christians.”
“If you were a Christian you were shot on the spot,” he said. “With each blast of the gun I thought I was going to die.”
I would hope that we would not deny this was inspired by militant Islamic ideology which must be defeated.
I find it ironic that we are so tolerant of a religion that kills Christians, gays and lesbians, yet we are punishing businesses in America for their Christian religious beliefs. It seems this Easter weekend we are reminded that Christian persecution has risen to a disturbing level.
