Ok, if you haven't heard about it, the Pope said some unflattering words about Islam being a religion of violence. Probably not the best thing, but unfortunatley, Islamic leaders have proven the Pope's statements to be startlingly correct by acts of violence and violent protests against "worshippers of the cross."
"We tell the worshipper of the cross (the Pope) that you and the West will be defeated, as is the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya" said a Web statement by the Mujahideen Shura Council, an umbrella group led by Iraq's branch of al Qaeda.
"We shall break the cross and spill the wine ... God will (help) Muslims to conquer Rome ... (May) God enable us to slit their throats, and make their money and descendants the bounty of the mujahideen," said the statement, posted on Sunday on an Internet site often used by al Qaeda and other militant groups.
Now is that violent or not? Christians must be ready for more accute and widespread violence and persecution as Muslim violence and hatred increases against us. Unfortunately, given previous comments on this very blog site, I fear we may also face persecution from militant Judaism.
May God help us and may this time of tribulation be short so that we, His elect, may survive!
Come, Lord Jesus!
