Great quote of the Day

Christianity TodayNigerian Archbishop Demands Justice
They're simply bitter, they're simply angry. They're simply fed up with it [Muslim violence]. And they say to themselves that maybe if we fight back, the [Muslims] will know they don't have the right to take life at will. So it isn't that their Christian religion is telling them to go out and fight. You forget, in the West, the Crusades were a response to 400 years of Islamic aggression in Europe. Don't forget that. Don't you ever forget that. They didn't just happen for the fun of it.emphasis added

Of course the victims so far have by and large have only been Christians so no one in the Western media cares. If Muslims start to die it will of course be newsworthy. The rest of the interview is great stuff as well. Bishop Akinola is trying to be a voice of reason in an unreasonable place.
