Christians Aren't Being Persecuted That Badly in Muslim-Dominated Countries...Right?
Read this post, and see if this fits your scenario of being able to practice your faith freely:
A pastor and eight other members of his congregation are missing --
A Muslim mob charged into a church prayer meeting in eastern Uganda, locked the doors, then beat several members and raped 15 women.
"The approximately 90 Muslims broke into the evening prayer meeting of Katira church of Uganda, in Katira village, Budaka District at about 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 15 and beat them with clubs and sticks...Previously Muslims had only thrown stones at the roof of the church building to disrupt church services of the 500 member congregation..."
"...among those who escaped before the doors were locked was a Christian who heard one of the assailants shout, 'Away with the pastor who is converting our Muslims to Christianity,' a church leader said."
The whereabouts of the pastor, Moses Mutasa, and his parishioners, are still unknown, more than two weeks after the attack. It's thought they are either being held hostage...or dead.
I wish I could say this incident is atypical, that it hardly ever happens, especially in Muslim-dominated countries...
but it's not.
No wonder these Christians are desperate to immigrate. I would feel the same way, if only for my children.
