“If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” – Jesus Christ, John 15:18-19 (KJV).
The hate is on display this Easter Sunday. Over 200 are dead and 500 injured following a series of Church-bombing terror attacks, by Muslims against Christians, in Sri Lanka.
A BRITISH student and her TV chef mum are among the 207 killed in an Easter Sunday terror attack on eight churches and five-star hotels in Sri Lanka today.
Nearly 500 were injured when suicide bomb blasts ripped through multiple buildings in Colombo – where tourists were eating breakfast and Christian worshippers had gathered for morning mass.
Of course, the Jihadis were known in advance:
It has emerged Sri Lanka’s police chief warned of suicide bombers planning to hit “prominent churches” 10 days before today’s attack.
Pujuth Jayasundara reportedly said: “A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo”.
The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that was linked last year to the destruction of Buddhist statues.
I wonder if Jacinda Ardern and other Kiwi cat ladies will pray the Rosary in “solidarity” with the victims. I wonder if Donald will have the AFT ban Church pews, known to “bump” the rate of Mass attendance. I wonder when or if tiny Benny Shapiro and the other usual suspects will crack jokes about these deaths. I wonder if Amerikans could even locate Sri Lanka on a globe.
I do not wonder, at all, about the ultimate outcome of any of this. These attacks and any resulting cultural stupidity are just too damned weak. In fact, all the hate the Prince of Darkness and his worldly followers can muster is just too weak. Remember, try as they might (and, boy, do they try), they simply cannot prevail against Us – because of Him.
HE is Risen – today, yesterday, tomorrow, and forever.
