Fellow Christians, Just recently, there were several Christians murdered in Egypt, and nary a word from our President or the Congress. As with the victims of Benghazi, our politicians are silent, yet, the President calls for war when the innocent souls of Syria are gassed, perhaps by our sworn enemy, Al Qaeda. Where is his call for action now and where is his call to seek justice for the Benghazi victims? http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2013/08/19/christians -being-slaughtered-in-egypt-by-radical-islamists-n1667835 Is Lucifer that rampant that he has silenced us through fear, or do we have the SPIRIT of THE ALMIGHTY coursing through our veins, to exact due justice upon this evil, sub-human enemy? Excuses mean nothing to those maimed and slaughtered. Stop the excuses. When will we slay the dragon? This is not a call for an Inquisition, this is a call to defend ourselves by vanquishing our enemy, Al Qaeda and the Taliban. Until we do, expect more carnage.

I also agree with Greg C. CT, watch your headlining! And William H "the United States appears to stand with the Muslim Brotherhood"? Not hardly.

The headline seems fine. 83% Christian, 11% Muslim, and 6% other according to wikipedia. It is true that they target any non-muslim.

This headline is misleading, and pours fuel on the fire of negative Christian/Muslim relations. By all news accounts that I have read, selected gunmen said that they were targeting "non-Muslims." Included in the non-Muslim category would be people of many faiths -- Christian, Hindu (there are many of Indian heritage in Kenya), animistic, or those with no faith at all. So, how is this singling out Christians only, as your headline would lead the reader to believe? The Indian man you mention as having been shot for not knowing the name of Muhammad's mother was most likely a Hindu. As a Christian missionary who lived in Kenya for 3 years, I ask you please, CT: Be careful with how you word things.

More Al Qaeda-linked groups. Boko Haram in Nigeria, and al Shabaab in Kenya. And Al Qaeda is fighting alongside rebels in Syria. The Muslim Brotherhood stands with all of them, and the United States appears to stand with the Muslim Brotherhood. And for Christians, the hour will come when no more work can be done. John 16:13 However,when He,the Spirit of truth,has come,He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority,but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. Galatians 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Romans 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. Psalm 51:11 Do not put me away from before you, or take your holy spirit from me. 2Ch 16:9 For the eyes of Jehovah run to and fro in all the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him.

My heart goes out for those brothers and sisters in Kenya. May the Lord have mercy to the families left behind. May the Lord bring to justice those who have done this. Maranatha.
