Islamists Storm Church – Murder 15 Worshippers With Gunfire and Grenades

Islamists stormed a church in Kenya today shooting Sunday worshippers. Gunmen were also waiting outside to shoot the Christians as they fled the church.
The AP reported:

Gunmen killed two policemen guarding a church, snatched their rifles and then opened fire on the congregation from inside and out on Sunday, killing 15 people and wounding 40, security officials said.

Two gunmen entered the simple wooden church in the city of Garissa at around 10:15 a.m. Sunday, while two others waited outside, police commander Philip Ndolo said. When the congregation fled the attack inside, they ran straight into another hail of bullets from gunmen outside, he said. At least one grenade was detonated in the attack.

Overturned wooden benches littered the church afterward. A victim wearing a simple blue dress lay on the sandy earth outside. Witnesses reported seeing the four gunmen flee in dark blue outfits and masks.

“We were deep in prayers preparing to give our offerings,” said a visibly shaken David Mwange, a churchgoer. “We first had a loud bang from outside which we mistook to be coming from the rooftops. We then had gun shots which made us to lie down. Within no time we had gunshots all over. Everybody was shouting and wailing in pain.”

The bloodiest of the two attacks came against the African Inland Church in Garissa, a city some 195 kilometers (120 miles) west of the Somali border. Ndolo said 15 people were killed and at least 40 wounded. A grenade attack against a second church in Garissa wounded three people.

  • another sunday in africa, another church attacked. another sunday in america, another islamophobia sermon. if fear of this happenning to you is islamophobia then everyone needs to have this phobia.

    They took some precautions – two armed guards, but I would really like to see every adult church goer also armed…….maybe if I win the lottery. These muslims are just a bunch of animals, and they are allowed to come into our countries. I will not donate to help these people in Africa.

    So in the ancestral home of our Kenyan Kandidate Christians were slaughtered. How many of them looked like they could have been his son?

    Remco Kimber: “If I had a son and we all lived in Africa I’d be quite proud if he was responsible for killing Christians.”
    What? You too chicken to do it yourself? You already have with your words! 1 John 3:15: “Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him.” Not only do you condemn yourself with your words, you condemn your own son! That is proof that you do not love him. You are incapable of love for God is love. One day, you will be forced to face Jesus and he will remind you of those words against him and those he loves and has died for paying the penalty for their sins. John 3:19-21: “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. but whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” Virtually, I am handing you a hammer and nails. Jesus is before you, the very essence of truth and love. He is lying on a cross. What will you do with those nails and hammer? The same thing you have done with your words? I implore you; think about what you are doing to yourself as you revile Christ and Christianity. Jesus is “the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) So, go ahead. Pound him to the cross with those nails and see where it gets you. You have two possibilities, you can either be proud of yourself as you go forward into the darkness trying to justify yourself as you stand in judgement for your actions or, as I would have you say, “Please, forgive me. I believe you died for my sins. I love you for that.” As you hear him say, “Father, forgive him for he knew not what did. I took his punishment. Let him live in us and we in him as I bestow upon him my righteousness.” I pray the same for these murderers in this church. They only condemn themselves by their actions stemming from hatred. I hope and pray they come to realize that they bear a hammer and nails also. They have crucified him. Will they accept his prayer and sacrifice in their stead or do they, as you, Remco, think your actions are justified? He will be the judge. Where do you stand? Hmmm?

    Obama created a job for his brother in Kenya, one small step towards the caliphate of his dreams.

    These are mass murderers and should be hunted down and exterminated. Or put in prison as if they were human. But other murderers would kill to get them released, so option 1 is better.

    Islam the religion of Peace at it again.. (for the libs out there.. Islam mean submission not peace). The Christians over there need to re-enact a Kristallnacht.. only this time with the Mooslims as the target.

  • blacks are being murdered in africa for their christan faith, not one black clergyman in america says a word. not one member of the black congressional caucus says a word. no rock star, no movie star, no sports star have a word to say.

    remember south africia and all the people that rallied so blacks could be free. where are they now. where is ‘little steven” van zandt, sting, bono. hiding in the closet would be my guess. they wouldn’t want to upset their marxist allies.

    Dear #10, The Way, The Truth & The Life aka Mr. I-don’t-know-the-meaning-of-satire,

    Christ was NOT reviled by my remark. I can assure you that the remark had NOTHING to do with Christ. The remark, Mr. Dense-as-cement, was a take-off on Obama’s remarks concerning Trayvon Martin simultaneously a commentary on The One’s decided Muslim favoritism.

    What’s wrong with you? Do pictures have to be drawn for you before light dawns inside that skull of yours? If so, you’re on the wrong website.

  • Jeannie

    Remco, I got it. We’re all a bit high strung at the moment because as we all note there is ZERO outrage about this from our prez or our media. Please just let it slide.

    sometime back in the early 90’s i was reading a story in “readers digest” that dealt with the murder of christians and the author asked where was the outrage from American churchs. some things don’t change. in a land where thoughts and intentions sometimes matter more than actions.

    This is EXACTLY the way obama’s relative won the leadership of kenya (he lost at the polls). And the relative claimed he was in weekly contact with obama getting advice. His re-election is coming up.

    Your intended rebuke was off but your message was sound and needs to resonate in this time. If they make you hate, you lose everything.
