Why Is the U.S. Government Funding Islamic Terrorists Who Are Killing Christians?

Government Policy Leading to Persecution of Christians

Most Americans are Christians.

But few know that the acts of our American government are leading to the persecution of Christians in numerous countries.

According to the Vatican’s official news service – Fides - and many other Christian news sources, the Syrian opposition is targeting Christians. Priests and bishops on the ground in Syria confirm these reports.

Either way, X was in error or deceitful. Begining to have my doubts about his integrity. Liked it better when he made good arguements based on facts.

Comics trivia time:
Batman was introduced to the world in Detective Comics #27, in "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate", which was published in May of 1939. Bruce Wayne, as Batman, investigates the death of a Chemical company executive to find out that he and another partner were murdered by a third partner, who fights Batman and is pushed into a vat of acid at the plant by the caped crusader.
Obviously, a pre-code* comic.
If you owned this book in a near mint condition, it would be worth about a million and a half bucks. If you owned a copy intact but in rough condition, it would be worth as much as 80 grand.

There were a few sites talking about how many people 'The Papacy' killed in the past as well, I guess that's always going to come up as a great excuse to kill as many Christians as possible. I don't deny History. My point was that more Christians are getting killed now than they are killing. X always lies when confronted with realities he does not like, I think it's meant to inflame me or something but it just shows ignorance. I cannot find anything on Christians killing anyone recently (last 30 years) and when I typed in are Christians killing Muslims (all I could think of), these came up, with the exception of one Atheist speculative article, seems to be the other way around. What were you referring to? I don't doubt you, would just like to know.

Joke time... Where's Clowny?

There is a big room with four corners. In the first corner, you find Superman. In the second corner you find Batman. In the third corner you find Spiderman. And in the fourth corner you find a gorgeous, extremely intelligent, 100% natural blonde woman with a ultra-thin magazine-model figure. In the center of the room there is a pot of gold. Who gets to the pot of gold first?

Ans - None, because none of these characters exist.

haha... Lol

Entire families slaughtered in month of attacks, apparently with military help.
JOS, Nigeria, September 22 (World Watch Monitor)— A rash of attacks by armed Muslim extremists on villages in Nigeria’s Plateau state in the past month have left more than 100 Christians dead, including the elimination of entire families, sources said.
In a guerilla-type “hit and run” attack on the Christian community of Vwang Kogot, Muslim attackers at about 8 p.m. on Sept. 9 killed 14 Christians, including a pregnant woman. Survivors of the attack told Compass that the assailants raided the village with the aid of men in military uniforms of the Nigerian Army.
Many of the victims were members of a single family surnamed Danboyi.
“We heard gunshots in our village and realized that the sound was coming from a neighbor’s house, so we quickly ran to find out what was happening but saw a soldier at the entrance of the house with a gun ready to shoot at anybody who comes around, and at the same time preventing those inside from escaping,” village resident Markus Mamba told Compass.“We couldn’t get any closer because we were hearing gunshots at random, and we had no weapons with us to use to withstand the might of those soldiers, as there were quite a number of them around the house.”
Hiding, Mamba and others could only observe the killing, he said.
“After the soldiers and the Muslims left, we rushed into the place to see the destruction they did,” he said.“We discovered that 14 people were killed. Among them was a pregnant woman who died with a child in her womb – bringing the number of deaths to 15 persons. We also observed that the victims died from gun and machete wounds.”

Unfortunately, religions feel the need at times to suppress or stamp out other religions, and the link you provide examples that.

History is littered with examples of this type of religious competition.

Christians persecuted throughout the world
The latest bombing in Nigeria shows how Christians are increasingly suffering for their faith – and how their plight is being ignored
Only two days ago, a suicide bomber crashed a jeep laden with explosives into a packed Catholic church in Kaduna, northern Nigeria, killing at least eight people and injuring more than 100 Photo: AFP/Getty Images
By Rupert Shortt8:38PM GMT 29 Oct 20121433 Comments
Imagine the unspeakable fury that would erupt across the Islamic world if a Christian-led government in Khartoum had been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Sudanese Muslims over the past 30 years. Or if Christian gunmen were firebombing mosques in Iraq during Friday prayers. Or if Muslim girls in Indonesia had been abducted and beheaded on their way to school, because of their faith.
Such horrors are barely thinkable, of course. But they have all occurred in reverse, with Christians falling victim to Islamist aggression. Only two days ago, a suicide bomber crashed a jeep laden with explosives into a packed Catholic church in Kaduna, northern Nigeria, killing at least eight people and injuring more than 100. The tragedy bore the imprint of numerous similar attacks by Boko Haram (which roughly translates as “Western education is sinful”), an exceptionally bloodthirsty militant group.
Other notable trouble spots include Egypt, where 600,000 Copts – more than the entire population of Manchester – have emigrated since the 1980s in the face of harassment or outright oppression.
Why is such a huge scourge chronically under-reported in the West? One result of this oversight is that the often inflated sense of victimhood felt by many Muslims has festered unchallenged. Take the fallout of last month’s protests around the world against the American film about the Prophet Mohammed. While most of the debate centred on the rule of law and the limits of free speech, almost nothing was said about how much more routinely Islamists insult Christians, almost always getting away with their provocations scot-free.
Innocence of Muslims, the production that spurred all the outrage, has been rightly dismissed as contemptible trash. What, though, of a website such as “Guardians of the Faith”, run by Salafist extremists in Cairo? Among many posts, it has carried an article entitled “Why Muslims are superior to Copts”.“Being a Muslim girl whose role models are the wives of the Prophet, who were required to wear the hijab, is better than being a Christian girl, whose role models are whores,” it declares.“Being a Muslim who fights to defend his honour and his faith is better than being a Christian who steals, rapes, and kills children.” Hateful messages breed hateful acts. Is it any surprise that mobs have set fire to one church after another across Egypt in recent years?

Thanks for sharing.

I'll let the actual historians' writings take precedence over yours.

I hope you don't mind.

Your first statement about Nero burning thousands of Christians at the stake as hiistorical, is simply a lie.

Your own quote from Tacitus didn't even make that claim.

G the Historian.

On Friday morning, 27 people were reportedly shot and killed at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, CT. According to sources, 18 of these casualties were children. This is the second mass shooting in the US this week, after a gunman opened fire in an Oregon shopping mall on Tuesday, killing 2. ABC News reports that there have been 31 school shootings in the US since Columbine in 1999, when 13 people were killed.
The rate of people killed by guns in the US is 19.5 times higher than similar high-income countries in the world. In the last 30 years since 1982, America has mourned at least 61 mass murders. Below is a timeline of mass shootings in the US since the Columbine High massacre:
December 11, 2012. On Tuesday, 22-year-old Jacob Tyler Roberts killed 2 people and himself with a stolen rifle in Clackamas Town Center, Oregon. His motive is unknown.
September 27, 2012. Five were shot to death by 36-year-old Andrew Engeldinger at Accent Signage Systems in Minneapolis, MN. Three others were wounded. Engeldinger went on a rampage after losing his job, ultimately killing himself.
August 5, 2012. Six Sikh temple members were killed when 40-year-old US Army veteran Wade Michael Page opened fire in a gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Four others were injured, and Page killed himself.
July 20, 2012. During the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, CO, 24-year-old James Holmes killed 12 people and wounded 58. Holmes was arrested outside the theater.
May 29, 2012. Ian Stawicki opened fire on Cafe Racer Espresso in Seattle, WA, killing 5 and himself after a citywide manhunt.
April 6, 2012. Jake England, 19, and Alvin Watts, 32, shot 5 black men in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in racially motivated shooting spree. Three died.
April 2, 2012. A former student, 43-year-old One L. Goh killed 7 people at Oikos University, a Korean Christian college in Oakland, CA. The shooting was the sixth-deadliest school massacre in the US and the deadliest attack on a school since the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

While it was a mass killing (he was possibly a Catholic and possibly Jewish) there is no evidence that it was religiously motivated.

One red herring down. Got any more ?

Most of USA's soldiers are Christians, so do we count all the people American forces have killed as Christian atrocities, too ?

Satanic Church in Newtown, CT:– Was Adam Lanza a Member?


Posted: 46 days ago
I have found some interesting information that has been found using the time feature on Google; and It’s About the Satanic Church/Following in Newtown, CT! Doing more research I came across Curtis M. LeBlanc — PO Box 3184 Newtown, CT 06470 & (**** West ST, Newtown, CT – Early 40s – Est.$1M Home Value) He is a Church of Satan Member and his responsibilities are helping new members sign up. Here is what the Satanic church is called in Newtown, CT: Church of Satan outpost,(AKA Church of Tiamat) I couldn’t find anything about that church but maybe the estimated location. The below the image the article has some interesting information about the Satanic Followers or Reports of events in Newtown, CT back in the winter of 1996.

Here is a screenshot of the route from the alleged Satan Church to the Sandy Hook Elementary School:

How many burning humans does it take to light the streets of Rome ?
It conflicted your opinion so you want to go on the attack.

You have become a real piece of work X. You argue like a Christian.
