according to reports this happened in front of the rest and after the first wrong answer they knew what would happen if they told the truth. Yet they did tell the truth.

If one of my kids was killed for telling a killer "yes" - I would be devastated that they didn't have the common sense to LIE about it. And for a "deity" that never, ever shows his face? No way.

I don't think religious background matters at this point. It's quite frankly irrelevant. What does matter, however, is that those were innocent people. And now they're dead. Pardon my bluntness, but just because they were Christian doesn't make it any more or less serious. The fact is, those people had families, friends, others who knew and loved them. That is the real cause for outrage.

I did not say Kill them all and let God sort them out.
That is a fact.
And I did not know you could read my mind?
If you can, what am I thinking about you right now?

I'm saying that christian persecution does not exist in this country, I mean, come on. this country was founded on christianity, right???
We have christian "leaders" right?
We have christian sayings on our currency, right?
So stop complaining, and playing the victim.
better yet, pray about it. . .
i was raised evangelical christian. yep, holy rolling, laying on of hands, anointing in oil, speaking in tongues. the whole shebang. I was essentially brainwashed up until the age of 13. and you know what i was taught? that we are at war, a holy war, and we must arm ourselves with the Helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, belt of truth, shield of whatever, and the sword of the spirit. so why don't these christians put on their armor? it's almost as if . . . . . GOD DOESN'T CARE IF HIS FOLLOWERS DIE. . . .
