The Christians started the killing. The orthodox also kill evangelicals.

Perhaps A Friend should read the following excerpt from the article you quoted and linked:

"The district government administrative office upon hearing the report warned Christians not to worship in predominantly Muslim region, according to ICC. The officers who heard the case were all Muslim.

"However, many Muslims in the region have condemned the violence against Christians and some have refused to go to Mosques. According to ICC, 47 Muslim leaders became Christians and renounced Islam stating, 'If Islam means killing innocent brothers and sisters – we do not want to follow it!'"

That is certainly a surprising and heartening reaction. Let's hope the unjust government officials take note and decide their cruel bias is losing them the support of their own co-religionists.

Violence against Christians has been going on since Jesus walked this earth. What gets me is why does our world not stand up to the violence perpetrated by MUSLINS against anyone that speaks against any thing muslin, reguardless of how small a thing it is and no body says boo, not to attach the whole muslin faith, because that would not be right, but if the extremists are calling themselves Muslin then maybe the Muslins need to stand up themselves (if they really do oppose the violense)and be heard- and if there is a differance between the extreemists and the true believers then I would really be interested in understanding the differance.
Please stop killing just because some lost soul told you that is the way to 'Allu' It's not the Way-
Please choose peace and stop Killing Gods people.
