This is worth a read. Such a dreadful deed, but what a wonderful message about it from Christian Concern.

Too bad you don't have the least bit of concern for other people in orange overalls who've been murdered by the biggest terrorist state in the world.

This is an amazing video. Do watch it if you can. The Earth spins on its axis beyond the moon and the shadows move around as the lunar month goes by. Very beautiful.

How to love better - but it might be costly... (hmm, I hope thousands of people won't post me requests for money - yikes!)

These Egyptian believers show how we should respond to those who want to hurt and destroy us. I add my prayer to theirs. The video came with this comment:

“Millions were totally astonished by watching the content of this video which was broadcasted on National TV. It was a real testimony to the love of God and His forgiving power, that was demonstrated through real people; deeply wounded by the loss of their loved ones, yet they are forgiving their enemies and praying for them to see the light and be saved.”

+Carol Kuniholm The church here in the UK needs to learn from this too. We all do. We are to be like our Father in heaven, blessing evil and good alike. Matthew 5:43-48.

Please consider signing this online petition about the activities of Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. The more people sign, the more pressure we can put on the Nigerian government and the UN to act.
Boko Haram just used a 10-year-old girl as a bomb-detonator and massacred up to 2,000 people. And the world is hardly responding. Let’s counter their reign of terror and demand urgent action for Nigeria.

No you couldn't, because Muslim armies are not occupying London & Washington and dropping bombs on them, it's Western armies occupying Kabul, Baghdad and dropping bombs on them.

Muslims are not giving billions of dollars in military aid each year to people to occupy the US, it's the US who are doing that to Palestine, and the British who initiated that occupation to begin with, flooding the population of Palestine with illegal Jewish immigrants.

You seem to be in total denial that all of these horrific crimes are day in, day out being perpetrated against innocent Muslim populations around the world, by the Western powers. And then you say things like "grace, peace and blessings"... how can you say these things with a straight face, when you are complicit, even if through denial and ignorance, in constant warmongering against the Muslim people of the world?

And then worst of all, you make threads like this, to blame the victims for their retaliation.. Unbelievable.

When you visit these kinds of things upon others, there is a price to pay...Do not forget that, and do not whine when the invoice arrives and pretend you don't know what it's for.
