^This is just a reminder. We need to be praying for the Christians in the Middle East. It is unfortunate because so many in the Church think that what we need to do is be more appreciative of Islam and all. I don’t know how we can do that when this kind of thing happens. With the individual Muslims who have a different attitude we can take a different approach. But with these Muslims, we have to have a more aggressive stance in every way. I don’t know all the answers, but I do know we have to take them seriously. Also, we need to realize that the problem is at least to some degree Islam itself. I recognize that people can interpret the Koran differently etc. etc. But the point is that insofar as this kind of act is regularly carried out by Muslims, routinely not condemned by other Muslims, and inspired by a legitimate interpretation of the teachings of Islam, it seems apparent that we have to oppose Islam more vigorously.
Pray for them.
