"The violence began Wednesday, when the Kaduna office of ThisDay newspaper was torched after the paper published an article questioning Muslim objections to the pageant. The contest is set for Dec. 7 in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, 225 miles southwest of Kaduna. The article, published Saturday, suggested the prophet Muhammad would have chosen a wife among the contestants."

Hundreds of Muslim youths have gone on the rampage in Nigeria's capital, Abuja, following Friday prayers.

The BBC's Haruna Bahago in Abuja says people armed with sticks, daggers and knives set fire to vehicles and attacked anyone they suspected of being Christian.

a dreadful business and I've seen reports getting closer to 200 dead.
I sauspect it's mch more about large numbers of unemployed youths and local bandit-chiefs/businessmen/politicians (largely synonymous).
By all accounts, there was no controversy until the (Christian press) article about Muhammad was printed.
On a cultural note: I heard to-day an advertisement (pro-environmentalist) to be released in the US asking which car Jesus would have driven.
I wonder if this will provoke riots.

Now... turn it around.

Suppose that a Muslim paper had promoted a Pedophile Love Fest pageant and then printed something about how Jesus would have approved.

Ya don't think there'd be a spot of trouble over that?

We tend to think of other countries as having our same customs and same laws. To a Muslim country, underclothed women IS as offensive as it would be to us to have a pedophile love-in fest anywhere here in America.

For pete's sake, folks! We aren't the world!

I fail to see how a Christian paper (if it even is) news article...still justifies the killing of Christians out on the street..but then again i guess they are at fault for being there right??

One day, everybody will see this religion like she is.In comparison with the Muslim faith, the Catholic Inquisition is almost looking like a dream.
