Pro Life - The Correct Course after 9/11

posted Sep 15, 2011, 10:14 AM by St. Joseph Cheyenne
Time has passed since the 9/11 Massacre where Muslim Al-Qaeda Terrorists hijacked several planes and deliberately rammed them into the Twin Towers, killing thousands of innocent people. Since then we have been involved in military campaigns in the Middle East, and despite the death of Osama Bin Laden, the leader of Muslim terrorist group Al-Qaeda, the terror continues. Christians in the Middle East, who have been living under the persecution of Islamic Laws that hold non-Muslims as second class citizens, have come under more pressure and bloodshed, even in areas called free and liberated. Appeasement to the Muslim population that upholds those bigoted Islamic Laws has not helped our brothers and sisters either. What can we do? We should pray, not just for the innocents who are persecuted and killed, but also for the Muslims who uphold such barbarism. Praying for the enemies of Christianity is not only what Jesus commands, but is what is needed. Many of those against us do not know what they are truly doing, for in persecuting Christians they are persecuting Jesus, who is God with Us. It was Jesus who told St. Paul, when St. Paul was persecuting Christians before his conversion, "Why are you persecuting me?" In praying for the Conversion of the Muslims, we ask that, like St. Paul, they will add to the beauty and glory of Christianity.
