Gunmen shot six Christians dead including the pastor at a Midnight Mass Christmas celebration this morning. They then torched the church.
The AFP reported, via Religion of Peace:

Gunmen attacked a church in northern Nigeria during a midnight mass on Christmas Eve, killing six people including the pastor, before setting the building ablaze, residents and police said Tuesday.

Gunmen killed six people attending midnight mass at a church in northern Nigeria on Christmas Eve, police and residents confirmed on Tuesday.

“A group of gunmen came into the village at midnight and went straight to the church… they opened fire on them, killing the pastor and five worshippers. They then set fire to the church,” said Usman Mansir, resident of Peri village, near Potiskum, the economic capital of Yobe state.

Mansir specified that a branch of the Evangelical Church of West Africa (ECWA) was the congregation that was targeted.

A senior police official in Yobe confirmed the details to AFP, but declined to be named.

Boko Haram Islamists have carried out several attacks in Yobe, which borders the state of Maiduguri, where the insurgent group is based.

    Islamists should pray to the false prophet that I’m not in charge of the response to their barbarianism.

    I would nuke every hidey-hole, every crack and corner, every niche and alcove, every cranny and cubbyhole, every hollow and hole, every indentation and pigeon hole, every recess and slot, every recess and slot – anywhere you could hide and I would hunt you down using every and any means and all of the treasury to extinguish you from his planet, this solar system, this galaxy, this Universe.

    You should pray that I’m not in charge, but someday there will be someone like me – and it just might be me – who will wipe your death cult from this earth with no remorse. And until that day arrives – I will pray to God that you are struck down, infested, harmed and destroyed, that your mission on this physical plane is ended, that you burn for all eternity in the lakes of fire for your never ending desire for death.

    I can not wish you enough pain in this world and the next.

    Horrific! Disgusting! Revolting! What drives me nuts is that it goes on all the time and no one cares?! When oh when are people going to be outraged enough to demand a stop to this. When oh when is the main st. Media going to start doing their job and start reporting this horror

    Christ came to this world to be a Savior…that we could have eternal life!

    These Islamists not only do not have a Savior, but all their sad lives are all about death, darkness, and despair…


  • dwdude

    the spirit of the anti Christ is growing in the world…it would behoove Christians everywhere to arm themselves. being a Christian believer does not mean being a pacifist victim.

    Hunt those “gunmen” down and kill them, then find their leaders and kill them too. The only thing those bastards seem to understand is brute force, so it’s time to give them their well-deserved share of it.

    i believe MECCA, the slavery capital of the world in
    every aspect of the word, would more than suffice..

    why else would they, albeit symbolically, bow to the
    devil below, arses pointed towards God in heaven..

    If we had a decent president he would be giving guns to Nigerian Christians instead of drug cartels in Mexico. Instead we have a constitution hating, Christian hating, America hating president elected by a party that is 50% communist and 50% illiterate. (I’m sure illiterate is a racist term)

  • Sandy

    Is there any good news about Muslims? Do they work? They seem to spend so much time rioting that I have to wonder what they do for fun besides blowing up houses of worship and cutting off people’s heads.

  • anybody heard from bono or little steven or bruce or any other of the leftist rockstars that were so concerned about blacks in south africa? anybody heard from jesse or al or any other of the so-called civil rights leaders? anybody heard from any of the liberal politicans or their democratic party-media complex? the only place you will hear about this is on the racist conservative blogs.

    You won’t hear much about these Islamic crimes from the MSM.

    The MSM, and most of the entertainment industry, continues their assault on Christianity at every chance they get.

    You can hardly turn on your TV without seeing these entities attempting to portray Islam as “peaceful” and Christianity as evil (no matter what the main subject is).

    I suspect that having a “closet” Muslim in the WH has something to do with this.

    Meanwhile, our government insists on doing everything it can to ensure that we remain dependent on Arab oil.

    Then there’s the fact that US taxpayer dollars are often used to fund these largely non-working Islamic terrorists (as Sandy says).

    The bottom line is that the MSM, our government, and the entertainment industry are not on our side.

    How come I don’t hear the UN demanding they disarm these terrorist? Where’s repeal the 2nd amendment’s comment on disarming the rest of the world. Oh yeah, it’s easy to blame Americans for all the violence around the world with no consequence.

    Silence from our government… inaction… ignoring… and even silencing by MSM.

    May God intervene on behalf of these Christians! And may we remember all of our Christian family living among hateful enemies of truth.
