Reports are continuing to surface (click here or here) about Turkish martyrs that were slain for their belief in Jesus. The doctor who looked at the bodies stated that one of the men “had scores of knife cuts on his thighs, his testicles, his rectum, and his back… His fingers were sliced to the bone.”
This is just one more example of Muslim hatred toward people of other faiths. It is ironic that this happened while Europe is in the midst of passing new “hate” legislation which will ensure that no cartoon of Mohammed are printed. While the West capitulates to Muslim sensitivities they slaughter Christians within Islamic majority nations.
I am sure that Turkey will attempt to prosecute those involved. Turkey, though, cannot counter the primitive, medieval world view of Muslims that have not come to terms with the modern world. No government can.
Please join me in praying for the families left behind, some of whom will remain in Turkey despite the atrocity committed against these brave missionaries.
